A little while ago I decided I should join in with Kelby Sews' My Precious Quilt Along because I had not one - but two piles of hoarded fabric that I just couldn't cut in to! After this pile of fabric sat in the drawer for, well, forever, I thought that maybe I would make a quilt using huge diamond shapes in these yummy Amy Butler Love fabrics. The idea was vetoed when I bought a pattern book which had a great pattern in it which used rectangles - so I plucked up the courage and cut it!
So as you can see here, these are the yummy strips that I cut, all lined up and ready to sew.
Result - I love it! I'm happy that I went with this pattern and love the way the colours of the fabric go together. Rectangles are definitely me :) I've made 25 blocks and laid them out in a 5x5 grid. The pattern I used was from the "Happy Hour" pattern book and is called Triple Treat Petite and was so easy. I'm glad it was easy otherwise I would have hemmed and hawed too much and not got anything done!
Ahh... what a relief to be done cutting it and sewing the blocks together! I will finish sewing the top together this weekend, with luck! And one of the best bits is that I still have some scraps to play with!! Yum :) I'm linking this beauty up to Kelby Sews' My Precious QAL.
