Thought I’d pop on here and show you my latest quilt (& cushion!).
I’ve called it 'Break out the Bunting', because it was inspired by outdoor garden parties with bunting fluttering in the warm breeze. It plays with the humble corner block, using two different sizes of corner that cleverly fit together when rotated to create lines of triangles that look like bunting.
It was a great scrap buster, I think I must have used every single bright fabric I have in my stash! I used Kona white for the background on the quilt. I quilted the quilt with an all over free motion meander design.
I made a matching cushion too. But for this one I used low volume prints for the background instead of the solid white fabric. And did straight line quilting for a more modern look. Not sure which I prefer! What’s your favourite?
I’ve written this up as a pattern which is available to buy here. When I was designing this one I played with lots of different layouts of the blocks, so I included all of those other layout ideas in the pattern too. Two of my lovely pattern testers, Martine and Abigail opted to make up some of the alternative designs.
Martine made this wonderful Ombre version.
And Abigail made this striking version of the Radiating Squares idea.
Have a lovely day!
