Quilt

I have been slowly working on a quilt. I know I have made quilts in the past, but they were usually a hodgepodge of fabrics with no real pattern used. I decided this time to use 12 inch foundation piecing blocks to make up my quilt front. I used a combination of patterns I found at Wombat Quilts, and Sew What Sherlock.
I ended up including a 24 inch box in there and really liked how it looked. I’ve finished sewing it together and even quilted it at this point. I will be sure and get it outside to get some photos of the whole thing very soon! One of my favorite features was a suggestion by my friend Jessee. I was talking to her about the backing fabric and its need to be pieced from two pieces of fabric due to size and she suggested adding a line of blocks to the back so there wasn’t just a seam. I made a bunch of 8 inch blocks and I love the effect. I have already started on my next quilt with Halloween fabrics.
