Get ready for a blasting of quilt posts (among other things – December is going to be the month of catch-up posts). Anyway, I’m so excited to have so many finished and ready to share – but, here’s fair warning, some of the finished quilts are actually Christmas presents, so the quilts shared here on the blog will likely appear out of order sequentially until after the Holiday Season. However, I promise I will go back and share the gifts once they are given.
This quilt was a breeze to make and so, so, so fast! And we all know that fast is fantastic when it comes to quilt making – especially when you’re making 26 in a year. I will say, I forgot that you were supposed to initially sew the strips together at a 45 degree angle, so my joints ended up straight instead of slashes – but that’s ok, I’m still a fan of how it turned out.
I used a variety of fabrics for this one, and ended up using a few precut jelly roll strings and cutting a few of my own 2.5″ strips to finish out the design. Also, just a side note, the first few strips you sew together are insanely long – like circled through three rooms of the house long; but, after those first two or three, the length becomes much more manageable and the whole process gets much faster.
This makes 7 quilts shared here and 19 to go. Happy Quilting!
