I decided on a one block quilt which I have been wanting to make for ages. A quick fabric pull, some maths and I was off.
The units are 4.5" square. I would have gone to slightly bigger units except that my fabrics wouldn't have stretched that far.
I worked up each quarter at a time which made it very manageable. At 32.5" square I thought it was just a little small so I added three narrow borders, 0.5" white, 0.5" lilac and finally 1" white. Again, the sizes of my borders were dictated by how much fabric I had left
|36" square: Not a great 3.22 am photo of the finish!|
This quilt is a really quick make if time is on your side. I did hit a few snags in my week and ended up pulling a really, really late night on Saturday to finish it. But, it was done and gifted on Sunday to a sweet little black haired bundle in her daddy's arms. Job done!
I'm a little amazed that I have a finish this year and it's still only January! What happened to my plans to make this the year of starts? Oh don't worry about that, I will have lots of starts to share with you in the coming days ;-)
