DWMonday ~ Parson Gray

I picked up a layer cake of this Parson Gray fabric the last time I visited Missouri Star Quilt Company. IMG_4549

I finally decided how I wanted to use it and got my pieces cut last week.img_8554

And I have now started piecing. There will be two blocks for this design. The background fabric is Aged Muslin from Marcus.


Together, they can be set to make this pattern. The squares finish at 4 inches, so it is a bit chunky looking.

I didn’t want to cut up those wonderful patterns too much though. And I wanted something fairly quick and easy to finish.

Have a great day!

    Love this fabric, Katy! And I like how you are piecing it….as I have said many times, I love how such simple shapes can result in great quilt tops….looks like you are making some great progress already…with the squares being larger, you will have this quilt top finished up in no time at all!!

    This is looking great, your pattern does show off the fabrics nicely! As does your background choice, the colours seem to glow!

    I can this quilt with the flying geese in those muted colors surrounding it. You pick the neatest fabric, Katy!

    Thank you for the credits for the fabrics, especially the Marcus background that looks so rich in your design!

    Ooh..a great idea to use up a group of fabrics. I’m looking for something to use a 8 or so fat quarters from the same line… so, just to verify, the cut squares are 4.5″ before they are pieced or is the pieced unit 4″ finished? Yes, that background fabric looks terrific with your fabrics.
