I had a blast making this quilt and I’m so excited to share it with you today!
As a reminder, this is the fabric I started with from Fabric Wholesale Direct .
This looks so complex, but it could not have been easier. I shared my process for making these blocks in this post. They are just six inch hourglass blocks alternating with solid black. The quilt finished at 48 by 60 inches.
I started with two yards of the print. It had 9 pattern repeats over those two yards. I used 8 strips of the repeating pattern and saved one strip to piece into the back.
This next photo shows how bright this quilt really is!
I loved the effect of using four identical triangles rotated and pieced back together. Every block was a delightful surprise.
I love the red thread on black, but I kept the quilting very simple to keep the focus on the fabric.
Thanks to Fabric Wholesale Direct for providing the lovely print fabric for this project. I was pleased with the quality and price. I will have more projects with the rest of the fabric in a few weeks.
Have a great day!
What a fascinating quilt! It’ll make me look at large print fabrics in a fresh way – so many possibilities! 🙂
I like how your quilt turned out! That is amazing fabric. I love your binding. Hugs,
That fabric must have been so fun to play with. I love the result too – the quilt is so vibrant! Well done!
This was a fun use of an interesting fabric. I’m a big fan of this technique!
