Welcome to Day 1 of the Splash Of Color blog hop! Thank you for visiting with me.
When Jackie asked me to participate in this blog hop, I was so excited. I knew that anything Jackie did was sure to be amazing- full of color, pattern and just plain wonderful. And I was right!
What a great book. I know you will love the projects in here. They are dynamic, colorful and, even better, have great directions and will go together quickly! A win-win!
One of the quilts, Seeing Spots, caught my eye. I have not done a quilt with 60 degree triangles and I have always wanted to make one. So I decided to see what I had on hand and give it a try.
I found this wonderful bundle of FQs from RJR Fabrics in my stash: it is a new line called Vintage Made Modern and it is designed by Amy Barickman.
I grabbed a bunch of the FQs and just started cutting. From each FQ I was able to cut 8 triangles and 2 smaller end wedges, though I only used the ones from the black fabrics to finish each row.
Once I had all my triangles cut, I laid the quilt out on the floor and started playing with the design. It ended up, as I played with the fabrics, that I needed 2 more black prints so I added these 2 FQs.
Here is my design, in progress.
And here is the finished top.
I used 2 of the leftover fabrics from the stack and made a cute row to add to the backing. And the last three fabrics from the FQ stack are going to be a scrappy binding.
Woohoo! I used the whole FQ stack! (Way to smash my stash, huh?!!!)
Do you like my version of Seeing Spots? There are no spots in mine so I guess I should call it something else. Thoughts?
