Thank you, Amy, for hosting this quilt festival! It's so much fun to click through all of the links for great quilting inspiration!
Here's my favorite quilt (of the moment):
I based this quilt on a pattern from Amy Butler's quilt patterns cd and selected colors to match my living room. This is my favorite color scheme of all time, so I love seeing whenever I walk through our living room throughout the day. Originally, I was going to save time by stippling it instead of doing straight line quilting, but I opted for cross-hatch quilting at the last minute and I love how it turned out.
This quilt is the perfect weight and size for afternoon naps and reading on the couch...which basically has been my life for the last few months while I'm working away on schoolwork.
Here are the details:
Original pre-cut block size:
8" x 8"
Four yards of fabric in four different colors are needed (1 yard each color). You will be able to cut 20 blocks from each color.
Then, the 8" blocks are cut in half on the diagonal (40 triangles of each color).
Sew the triangles together to opposing colors. You will have 80 blocks total. Arrange the blocks in 8 columns and ten rows and sew together.
Binding (for 2.5" strips): 1/2 yard
Backing: 4 yards
The quilt is 54" x 68"
(Psst: Here's my other favorite quilt from the spring blogger's quilt festival)
