This is yet another upcycled blues quilt I finished recently.
It was number 2 in the tops that I made. Starring Monkey Wrenches was first and this one was the next one. I finished quilting them in a more random order than I made the tops -- I totally decided which one to quilt by what mood I was in!
The backing was all upcycleds as well, of course. I am about out of blues, so I decided that it didn't really matter - I could use red!
If you weren't reading this when I made the top in the first place - (November, 2017), this quilt top is simply a courthouse square block, a plain block and the one with the half square triangles in it.
I don't usually make blocks that use units this big (the HST one), but they went together quickly- esp. since I only needed 12 of them for this quilt!
This angle gives you a little different view of the quilting. I am really feeling exposed by showing you the quilting even this close. I did some echo quilting and some stippling - attempted straight line quilting without a ruler. LOL. I figure I'll never get better if I don't try it! So I went for it!
I did update the pattern - it's here!
The only thing I did was update the picture. But it's a free download - so feel free to update your pattern if you already have one.
I hope some of you can use it.
And the quilt roll. Of course.
I'm wondering how all the quilts in this series would look with all their quilt rolls in one photo.
I guess I'll have to get busy.
I don't think the puff or biscuit quilt I'm working on will make a roll, though. I think I could use it as the base for all the other ones to sit on, though!
And not, you've not seen it yet - I'm just making the blocks right now - and only when I'm in a certain mood.
We often have breezy weather, but I managed to catch the quilt when it was hanging straight down - at least "almost" straight down! This one looks nice from a distance because the blocks are so big!
Have a great day! I hope it's a good one for you!
Don't forget - if you need something for your current project, be sure to browse the shop before going elsewhere!
