Cutting + sticking + sewing + baking. My creative life.

Scattered Quilt

When I had finished the Swoon quilt that I made last summer I had lots of half square triangles left over, HSTs as we call them in the world of quilt making (love a TLA, me.  Three letter acronym, that is!).   I had a browse through Pinterest for quilt patterns using HSTs and I found an ideal pattern called Scattered.  So I made a bonus quilt from the same fabric range (Blubird Park by Kate and Birdie for Moda) and used up every scrap of material.  I wanted to give a quilt to a friend for her birthday as she had wanted to win the Swoon quilt I had recently raffled.

Scattered is a simple and clever pattern which can be chain pieced.  It goes together beautifully.
I joined the backing together with with a strip of fabric I made from the last of the material.  I like “back art” on a quilt.
I choose quilting designs which complement the pieced design.  This quilt is quilted with the Anne Bright design “Too Much Bubbly” as I thought the circular pattern played well with the angular triangular composition of the quilt.  Also, I like a glass of Prosecco!
My friend liked her birthday quilt.
