Good Morning quilty friends!
I've got a quick quilt top for you this morning. This one came together super quick. Like, put together in a weekend that is already full of activities, quick!
This one came about as a way to use up 1/2 of a layer cake of Fresh Cut that I had leftover after putting together the Superstar Charm quilt. I had marked this quilt pattern in the book Dessert Roll Quilts and it seemed like a perfect fit. Except for the navy, all the extra fabric came from my stash. Yay for using what you've got!
The pattern is super simple. There are just 2 blocks: (4) simple 9-patches and (32) 9-patches that include 2 HSTs. Then you just turn your blocks to create the pattern. Easy-peasy. The background is made up of the low-volume prints from the layer cake as well as a variety of soft whites and creams.
I debated adding an extra 5-inch border of background fabric all the way around, but I think I like it as is. It is already a good size at 81 x 81 inches.
My next challenge is to use up the other half of this layer of Briar Patch that I so adore. I have pulled some coordinating solids from my stash. I am thinking a granny square quilt would be perfect...
Thanks for stopping by!
