@Edel made a quilt back in January 2021 and it intrigued me, I planned back then to try one myself but house building, grand children and a myriad of others things took priority, finally, I have one made. One thing I learned, I don’t like sewing triangles!
A couple close ups and to show the quilting …
I cheated by not binding it, instead serged the edges since it’s for our personal use.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of the original fabric, when I went back to the store it was sold out, so just have a small piece to show. My original plan had been to use an ‘ugly’ fabric but couldn’t find one in colours I liked and I didn’t want to put in all the work for something I wouldn’t use.
Gorgeous! This labor of love was definitely worth it!
Cindy!! You did a fabulous job, I love it. And share your distaste for triangles!
So pretty, delicious colors!
This is my first and probably last foray into triangles
Thank you for the compliments.
This is incredibly beautiful! Im glad you made such a wonderful item for yourself. We dont treat ourselves often enough.
Hard to believe how many variations you got from one fabric! It is gorgeous!
I hate triangles as well, but, I do have this on my bucket list…
This is a beautiful quilt!
It’s absolutely stunning! This pattern works really well with a floral fabric. @Edel’s transformation of that ugly fabric was remarkable, but if you have to buy fabric new anyway, then I wouldn’t want to buy ugly fabric either. You still absolutely transformed this fabric.
Also, really clever to just serge the edges. I had never thought of that as an option before, but it’s probably quite fast and also very sturdy.
I had actually completely forgotten about the quilt I made, thanks for the flashback
By the time I got to the binding, I was so tired of working on this I decided to give it a try, knowing I could add binding later if necessary. I’ve wash this several times and it’s held up well.
I encourage you to make one, just one The transformation is truly amazing.
My neighbour wanted to try one, even though she’s not a quilter, so I’ve been helping her with it. She’s using old curtains and it’s looking nothing like the original fabric.
Incroyable, Cindy! Truly marvrlous.
