I can't believe I've actually finished two quilts on my list this quarter ~ totally shocked, I tell you!!
I love this pattern by Lella Boutique (from Fat Quarter Shop's November Sew Sampler Box) and I actually used 4 charm packs of Olive's Flower Market by (LOVE the colors in this collection) along with some Kona White for the background.
I changed up the pattern a bit by using the full-size 5" charms for the HSTs instead of cutting them into 2-1/2" squares, so each block turned out to be almost 10-1/2" finished. 5 blocks across and 6 blocks down makes this a good size lap quilt. The quilt finished at about 52" by 63".
First 4 blocks
I kept the quilting simple, with some straight line quilting through the centers of the blocks and some Dot-to-Dot (ala Angela Walters) in the square block formed by the HSTs. All of the quilting was done with my walking foot.
For the binding, I used a black and white Beaded Curtain fabric by Loralie Designs, and I found some fun green and white dots by Benartex for the backing.
I also threw in some of the striped and dot fabrics for a different block on the back. I love the way I can see the quilting on the back!
So one more finish for the 3rd quarter. Pretty happy about that!
