I’ve been secretly plotting and planning this quilt ever since Jeni posted her lovely Flagged Quilt Mini Tutorial. Big bold blocks, yes please. Maybe I shouldn’t divulge this next little bit, but it took me a bit too long to figure out the yardage using just two solids. Um, yeah, I’m sure my first grader could have figured that one out. 2 yards of each. Yeah. Anyway…
I got stuck on the quilting design and binding parts. The quilt top and backing were bright and bold in my mind, but everything else I hadn’t thought about. Anyway, I came up with this triple loop quilting within each triangle ‘flag’. I’m sure it’s been done before, but it worked really well and didn’t take very long.
I know it’s kinda hard to see, so I did a little sketch of it in case you’re curious. It’s not perfect (mmm, nothing is) but once it was out of the dryer, it was so pretty and I used it right away. I’d say the difficult part was the large loops, the smaller ones felt more natural.
Fabrics are all Art Gallery, Pure elements in Caviar and Snow for the black + white, and Flower Bed in Blush (from Croquette Collection) for the backing, Pure Elements in Verve Violet for the binding.
I’m trying to work on a little project for this quilt to reside on, so hopefully I’ll be able to show you that in the near future!
