We have a top! (click pic) You may recall, we tried all sorts of settings and I lived with a couple on my design wall but this is the one I ultimately went with.
It feels great to have these blocks set. I absolutely loved making them. I would take them with me for handwork on sew days and I’d stitch them in the evenings on the couch watching classic movies like I do. I’d spend some days just pulling fabrics, making up new block combos.
Those half blocks were a thing. I considered making a half block but my brain got all twisted up. Ultimately I just went for the slice and dice method. I’ll share that sacrilegious experience in follow-up post. I took photos while I was doing it.
Due to the new financial constraints I’m sorta hung up on the quilting phase. I have an idea though. I am thinking straight lines top-to-bottom in the cheddar, maybe three or four and then something simple in the blocks. We shall see.
I hope you enjoy my quilt even if you aren’t a cheddar lover.
- The blocks are hybrid pieced. Partially machine and mostly hand-pieced using Inklingo.
- The cheddar is a Paula Barnes Companions 1038-0128
- Blocks are 12″ finished.
- The quilt is approx 68 x 75
Have a great day and I appreciate you stopping by to share! *karendianne.
(ps: if you haven’t tried Inklingo yet, I’m just going to use this opportunity to say – if I can do it, you can, too!)
