Back in September I decided to take a break from designing and sew from someone else’s pattern. The pattern I picked was the Curve It Up pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful. The ladies from Sew Kind of Wonderful were having a QAL and I thought it would be fun to join in.
I have to say I found it really relaxing to take a break and it also completely rejuvenated me! I have since designed 5 new quilts and finished 3. I even wrote up a pattern! I will be releasing that later this week. Since I never showed my finished quilt on my blog and since there is a link up going on over at Sew Kind of Wonderful, I thought I should finally show it off!
I made a couple changes to a couple of blocks and with the exception of the Kona Navy border fabric, everything came completely out of my stash – and yes, I’m pretty proud of that fact! In the next couple days I will have a pattern release and I will be sharing a purse that I made last month too!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!
This is so fun. Traditional is great and then I need a break to go on a spree and this type of quilt frees my soul. Thank you fo sharing.
wow this is lovely.
Melissa, what a lovely quilt. It is great to see how you used the colours in your stash to make your blocks.
Very nice! Love, love, love your colors.
It’s awesome all put together! And congrats on using your stash.
I love the finished quilt! It looks very elegant. What an accomplishment to make it without buying anything but border fabric. Congratulations!
I look forward to seeing which design you have written up. What a lot of stitching you’ve been doing behind the scenes! I’m absolutely in awe of all the bags and purses you make. Just thinking about making one gives me a headache! LOL
this is fantastic. I love your color choices. And all the blocks are gorgeous.
It’s beautiful. I am just pulling fabrics to make the metro hoops pattern. I’m excited to use the Quick Curve Ruler.
