I'm still working through the fabric that was donated to our quilt guild. I was able to make 2-1/2" strips and 5" squares from the fabric. In December, I made First Crush, which was a pattern in the Charm School book by Vanessa Goertzen. Here's what that quilt looked like:
This quilt is basically the same, except that I didn't have any more white fabric, so I pieced the long black strips to the long blue strips. From those strips, I cut 4-1/2" squares and 4-1/2" x 8-1/2" rectangles.
I pulled some yellow fabric from my stash and used that to make the half square triangles. Here's what each block looked like before it was pieced.
I didn't like the look of the quilt when I laid it out like the first one, so I turned some of the squares this way and that until I liked the layout. And here is what the modified version ended up looking like. It's 61" x 73".
I hope you like it!
