After a year of Paper Piecing Monday I have finally finished a quilt from my Monday blocks. I am very proud to present my Block Rock’n sampler quilt top.
All these blocks are from Julie at 627Handwork’s fabulous free Block Rock’n pattern collection. There are only two blocks from her collection missing from this quilt – my Icky Thump block became part of the beautiful Icicle quilt and Julie’s Floyd block which I have not made yet.
For the record my favourite block is this beauty….
For the quilting of this lovely , I went with diagonal lines, which seemed appropriate with the off center block placement I went with.
For the backing I found some fabulously outrageous IKEA fabric in my stash which was just perfect. The photo does not do these neon lips justice.
The final touch was some solid Kona grey binding, which was attached using the sewing machine. I figured that this quilt might get a lot of love (and stains) and wanted it to be as durable as possible. Machine binding, though not as pretty as hand binding, in my opinion, does add some sturdiness.
I seriously love how this quilt came together… so much so that it is staying with me. It is going to be our couch quilt and I am soooooo excited.QUILT DETAILS Technique: Scrap paper piecing Block size: 12 x 12 blocks Finished size: 57″ x 60″
