I’ve been wanting to make a small wall-hanging quilt with some Fall colors to replace my tiny tulips quilt by my door. When the talented Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter sent me her new book, Fabulously Fast Quilts, I quickly fell in love with this particular block.
I’ve always loved the look of this traditional block pattern but have been intimidated to try it – it looks complicating! Amy’s book explained how to make it in a couple of simple steps, and before I knew it I had made 8 blocks!
It’s also a great way to use up those batting scraps from other quilt projects. Don’t throw away your batting scraps people! I like to save all of my scraps in a bin that I roll under my table. When I get the chance, I cut the scraps up into squares so they’re ready for a QAYG project.
For this lovely block I quilted lines along the seams to give it a clean finish. The fabric patterns are kind of busy so I thought some simple quilting would compliment it the best.
And here’s the lovely block after it’s been assembled.
As usual, Paige likes to cuddle the quilted blocks. 😉
Thanks for stopping by! Though I only made a small wall hanging, it sure feels good to accomplish something! Lately, mini quilts seem to be my saving grace.
