No quilt is a quick quilt in my opinion. However, some are slightly quicker to complete than others!! I was lucky enough to receive a gift of some Moda pb&j 2 inch squares for a New Year gift from a friend.
Naturally I wanted to make something as soon as possible as it was the start of the new year and I had a gift of new fabric to play with. At the back of my mind I thought shouldn’t even be considering a new quilt as I promised myself this year to finish some projects before starting anything new. Hmmmm.
The fabric kept calling me to use it – and so I gave in ! (i.e. little willpower when it comes to new fabric). I wanted a quick quilt, and I thought that I could make a small quilt to fit the little quilt frame I had brought last year. The frame meant I had to make a quilt 12″ by 14″ which shouldn’t take long and it would give me the pleasure of creating something with the lovely fabrics.
Another thing I had told myself (another one of those ‘resolutions’ for 2014) was to use some of my stash to work with the new fabrics.
I made some half square triangles and then put them in a chevron pattern. It was easy to quilt in Aurifil Ne 40 and I am delighted with the finished result.
I hope to make another small quilt for the frame, in another design. Making a ‘mini’ quilt satisfies my need to create a new item, and do some quick quilting as well. It took me a couple of days to finish so I still think nothing is quick in patchwork and quilting!
