Last summer I began a summer quilt for my bedroom. If any of you are like me summertime is not a time with free uninterrupted quilting time. My summer is filled with running here and there with my 4 darling daughters. By August the quilt was put in a drawer and forgotten, until Thursday, yes this last Thursday, March 10th.
While attending a quilt camp, I went to a road show given by Jenny Pedigo. I really fell in love with two of her quilts, metro lattice and urban nine patch.
Here she is with her metro lattice quilt:
Here is a urban nine patch I saw at the HMQS last year
I chose the Moda fabric, Color Therapy, that tells you I have had the fabric for at least a year! And I did put all the HST's together, but then the quilt got put away. Thursday was an open "sew"cial at the cotton shop and so I decided that with 5 hours of sewing I could start this again.
I did get 90 pinwheels put together!
I made me a list of everything I have to do and am checking it off step by step.
☑️ Make HST (360)
☑️ Make pinwheels (90)
🔘 trim pinwheels to 10"
🔘 use QCR to cut pinwheels
🔘 Sew edging on pinwheels
🔘 trim pinwheels to 9 1/2"
🔘 create rectangles (322)
🔘 trim rectangles to 2" x 9 1/2"
🔘 create rectangle sets (161)
🔘 Layout quilt
🔘 Stitch together top
It's a lot of steps, here is what one block looks like after adding pieces cut with the QCR (quick cut ruler) and trimming it to 9 1/2". Maybe I will have it ready for next summer!
