|Do you recognize the collection Asa & Brittany picked?|
|Riley Blake's Kensington|
|Starting to piece this Queen together! |
Pattern is Red Velvet by Camille at Thimble Blossoms.
|So glad to have this top finished that I posted a dark, indoor photo just because it is done. |
I will take a better photo tomorrow in the sunshine!
This will be a very cheerful quilt.
Remember from a previous blog post what pattern this is?
Fig Tree's Vanilla & Blooms.
|This King needs to get finished.|

|Iron Quilter??? |
I had high hopes but then 3 wks of travel so who has the time?
Perhaps the only submission from our family will be my 9 yr old granddaughter's quilt.
|Happy-Go-Lucky from Bonnie & Camille |
is getting a destiny with 23 4th graders who will learn about
HST Tessellations while making a wonderful quilt together.
|Thank you, Bonnie! I won a collection of Cotton Way patterns and Happy-Go-Lucky charm packs several months ago and I knew this would make a great classroom project!|
|Could not have done it without Bloc Loc rulers! |
These clever rulers make the cutting job easy
and the piecing precise!
|Ready to fly off to a 4th grade HST Tessellation class!|
Using Happy-Go-Lucky by Bonnie & Camille.
|Outer blocked border added. |
Still need to add the 1" off-white border and the floral border.
|Let's count these borders: |
1" frame for each block, Squared Block pieced border,
another 1" off-white, and the floral.
But one more border
(I am thinking a Kona Khaki solid) is needed!
|The Tapestry flimsy portion really is ALMOST done.|
|Fig Tree's Tapestry layer cake |
and Kona Bone, Stone, and Sand to make HSTs.
|3 different light Bella solids for first border, |
meant to mimic the tone on tones in the HSTs.
I was going to use a Tapestry print as a 2nd interior border
between the light bordered blocks, but thankfully before
I cut into the fabric I saw and was inspired
by Square Dance by A Little Bit Biased and
Just did a little math to determine the width of the light
solid spacers and went to work on it.
