It may be August but I am super excited to be able to show you my first quilt finish for 2017.
This quilt was made using my leftover Cotton and Steel fabrics – I guess I could call this one Cotton and Steel Quilt #4!
(You can see my previous Cotton & Steel quilts by clicking on the following links: Cotton & Steel Quilt #1; Cotton & Steel Quilt #2; Cotton & Steel Quilt #3)
For this latest quilt, I made super sized economy blocks – a pattern in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine Issue 46. For the first time I tried QAYG and was pretty happy with the end result. I didn’t struggle with the actual quilting process quite as much and think this technique may be my method of choice for future projects.
After joining the blocks together, I used a much loved Cotton & Steel fabric – Study Hall in black and white by Alexia Marcelle Abegg – from my stash for the backing. I joined the quilted front panel to the backing by stitching along the seams and around the grey background squares, both vertically and horizontally.
I’m very happy to finally have a quilt finish for the year and am now feeling quietly optimistic that my quilting – and blogging – will continue, albeit less frequently than previous years 🙂
