Christine’s Quilt

Some how, in between meetings, deadlines, dr’s appointments and the usual day to day chaos I managed to finish the top for my sister in law’s quilt.  I was of course hoping to finish the whole quilting process by today but life had other plans.  This is as far as I have got…

I made the blocks for this quilt using the Trip Around the World process and then instead of sewing the strips in order I mixed things up a little.  My blocks ended up looking random and pixellated and a little cool.  You can find my original post about the block here.

So now I have a quilt top made up of 2 inch squares of solid blues with a hint of blue purple thrown in.  My stash of solid blues is now almost depleted but I am so thrilled with the result.

  1. So gorgeous! And such a fantastic way of piecing it. I probably would have cut out all the little squares then tried to “randomly” arrange them, then stitch them together. Um yeah, your way… so much better!! Can’t wait to see it all finished up!

  2. I am amazed how fresh and different these patterns look with different colours…Must show my patchwork teacher….You’ve got me going again now after my break of Xmas feeling invigorated.

    • I must admit I am tempted to make this quilt again with warm colours. It is so fun and freeing. I really did not worry too much about the block placement at all. Just went with it.

  3. I think this is so lovely. One one hand, very simple, but with so many colours, it’s just stunning. I’m sure your sister in law will love it.
