I’ve been working on a few lap quilts to use as gifts this Christmas. The first one I made using half square triangles and lots of my cotton & steel fabric stash. The second I used a bunch of blues from my stash and started a rising star quilt
, I messed up the second star and decided to just go with it. Creating a quilt that has stars and + signs.
Both quilt tops are done, now to just figure out the back fabric and quilt them up. My hope to is finish at least 4 quilts for gifts, so it will be nice to have 2 down.
Do you have a favorite quilt pattern that is fast and easy? My go-to is foundation piecing but I do feel it is time consuming and since I need these done in time for Christmas I am looking for quilt patterns that are on the faster side.
I’ve been working on my Halloween quilts (this is one I started two Summers ago!) a bit this month. I wanted to finish both of them before the end of July, and now I’m pushing it a bit by saying before the end of August ;) The days just get away from me in the Summer with so many activities going on. In any case I am hoping they are both finished before Halloween this year, that is at least a goal that seems quite manageable.
This quilt is a big hodgepodge, no set pattern and I’m adding sections of gray fabric wherever I need. I don’t mind the randomness of it, and since technically speaking it was one of the first quilt I ever started, I’m okay with any weirdness.
I’ve been slowing working on my sawtooth star quilt. A block here and there when I can. My favorite to make are the tiny 3 inch blocks (skull and strawberry above are both 3″) You can download a free 3″ paper piecing here
to work on a sawtooth quilt of your own.
