A local quilt shop has an annual "challenging fabric challenge" which I decided to enter this year. The rules are that you buy a little paper bag in which is a half-yard of a fabric - you buy it without knowing what it is. Then, everyone who buys the challenge bag must make a quilt using at least 1/4 yard of that fabric. I used almost all of it in my quilt, which I used the Daisy & Grace Quilt as You Go 2 1/2" Hexagon Template Set - so fun and easy, and very satisfying project!
Update: I quilted with Urban Elementz Nemesh's Feather Grande design. I sewed the binding on and took to neighbor's house just in time to be loaded on the moving truck. ---- This is the fabric I picked out for my neighbor's son to piece a quilt while he was home from school because of virus (if he wanted to make one). His two sister's pieced their quilts and I quilted them (posted earlier). He didn't piece it. The family is moving away for a couple years for work, at the end of the month. I decided to make him this quilt. I used the charm on point pattern for the middle (8 x 16 squares), I placed the same fabric on the diagonal cut line, so the outer triangles would be the same fabric (same as border fabric). I added LeMoyne Stars (Lemon stars) to the top and bottom to make it a rectangular quilt. I had some charms left from the 4 charm packs that I had of Wilmington Essentials Sapphire Sky (Beautiful fabric), so I made four patches for the sides. 75" x 87"
My daughter gave me a layer cake for Christmas and it took me awhile to decide what to make from the fabric. I was surprised at how easy this was to make. I think the colors will make it a nice Christmas quilt. I followed a Missouri Star Quilt pattern and tutorial for this quilt. The only changes I made were to make the sashing burgundy rather than white. I also followed a MSQC tutorial for flange binding and included a picture of the binding. I was happy with how it turned out; it was a quick, pretty way to machine stitch a binding.
This quilt has taken me years to make! I started when I was made redundant several years ago, when I saw Jenny's tutorial. Having been furloughed from work during the pandemic I started bringing out my unfinished projects and decided to finish this one. Thanks for being so inspiring Jenny.
I bought 2 layer cakes of Cottage Joy by Shannon Christensen for Windham Fabrics, when on a visit to MSQC. I decided to make the Double Slice large 87x96, so I ordered more yardage. I love how this came out, The combination of the pattern and the fabric, somehow looks vintage to me. I love the mason jars! I quilted it with just stippling, on my sit down long arm, free motion. It's 10 x 11 four piece blocks, so 110 blocks. Hope you like it as much as I do and thanks AGAIN Jenny for such a simple pattern, but oh so pretty!
This is only my third project. I didn't have a clue how make this quilt. I bought the material to make it last August but didn't really get into making it until March 2020 SIP. I really love MSQC Youtube tutorials Jenny makes everything look easy. I must have watched the video 5 times. I really love the way it turned out and am so happy to have it in our camper.
