Can you believe how fast these months have flown by? It’s time to finish up our I Love Home quilt.
If you’re ready to finish your quilt, here’s the link to finishing instructions.
If you’ve been following me, you know I’ve been all about finding ways to showcase motifs from an Alison Glass print in my blocks.
My overall plan was to then set the blocks together with this print:
I had yardage, I had a plan, I made the first cut . . .
And I cut two of the pieces too short.
But I didn’t realize it until I started sewing everything together.
I had cut up everything I had on hand. There was no more of the print available locally so time for Plan B.
Since I’d been featuring this print in the blocks, I decided to add some of it to part of the setting pieces. Luckily, I had Electric Quilt on hand to help me figure out all the calculations for my setting pieces.
My goal for the setting all along was something that just focused on the 4 blocks with lots of negative space.
I think adding the 2 pops of focal print in the opposite corners made the overall design more interesting. So maybe the mistake happened for a reason?
Let’s go with that, ok?
So here it is . . . my finished top. Quilting to come later.
While I was trying to get a semi-decent photo, my always-present helper decided to photobomb:
We have a great giveaway this month . . . a $25 gift certificate to Thermoweb.
To enter, comment on this post & tell me your favorite color combo. I’m hard at work on my next fabric line & I’d love to hear what 2 colors put together make your heart sing.
