Finish It Up Friday ~ 36 Patch

This is another project that was a long Time coming to fruition. I cut the strips for these blocks when I cut the pieces for Daughter #1’s wedding quilt!

The strips were cut 2 inches wide, so each 36 patch finishes at 9 inches. If you are careful how you press, all the seams will nest.

I’ve wanted to make this for ages. Now I’m not sure what took me so long to get to it! 

I love how it turned out. I will probably add a border when I get home and gave access to my stash. In the mean time, I stay stitched the edges to keep things stable.

Here it is on a bed.

I can’t wait to quilt this one!

Have a great day!

    I *LOVE* this quilt!! I’ve done two 16 patch quilts and have wanted to do a 36er. Yours is just gorgeous. I can’t wait to see how you quilt it! Any ideas for the quilting, or will you surprise us? 🙂

    I love this quilt! What did you cut your print strips off of? I don’t see any repeats and the strips would be approx. 22″ long.

    Beautiful. How big were those patches? Did you use strips and piece and cut or did you cut individual squares?

    What a pretty quilt! It just looks so fresh and happy. It’s good to see that you are enjoying yourself on your extended “quilt retreat”.

  21. it’s beautiful! you really can’t go wrong with simple patchwork, can you? I keep coming back to the 16 patch.. I’m not sure your quilt really needs a border, though, but I know whatever you pick will be beautiful.
