Today I finally have a finish to share with you. After months of adding borders to WIPs and binding, binding, binding, I can now share an actual quilted and bound quilt!
This is a double hourglass quilt that I designed and made using two Moda Jelly Rolls, one is Hello Luscious and the other is a jelly roll from the Moda Basics range in Porcelain. This quilt is super quick and easy to piece and you don't need any templates - just a 6 1/2" square ruler with the 45 degree line marked out it. I have written a pattern/tutorial for it and you can download it here.
I love to go to this local church to photograph my quilts. I love the colour of the stone work and the rustic old gate is perfect for hanging quilts. Incidently it is the church my mum got married in.
My mum quilted it for me using a pantograph pattern called 'Cherry Blossom'. Here is a closeup of the quilting and of my favourite fabric in this line. Basic Grey, who designed Hello Luscious, have the most gorgeous solids in their collections called 'grunge' and this pink grunge takes the cake, it is GORGEOUS!
I hope you enjoy the tutorial, and if you happen to make one of these quilts I would love to see it, so don't be shy - email me a picture!
I am linking up to Quilt Story and Freshly Pieced so head on over and spread the fabric love.
