a finish of sorts


At last, I’ve finished the trip-a-long top. I know there’a a big difference between a finished top and a finished quilt but, still, it’s a finish of sorts. It’s quite a step towards low volume for me but not so pastel coloured as it looks in the photo above.
this shows the colours a bit better

I’ve got quite bored of this quilt, I think because I took a break to catch up on bee blocks and lost momentum, so I really should be pressing on with basting and quilting to avert a possible UFO…

But, instead, I decided to try a little experiment…

charm squares
press seams open
measure 1″ from the points
slice 1′ from points
sew  each strip back where it came from
I think it creates quite an interesting shape but would work better with solids or near solids…
What do you think?

    Hi Janine! Great you finished the quilt top because it's so beautiful! Quiltin is a piece of cake – do it quickly to get it in use!
    I love your idea for a new quilt block! I think it's beautiful with any kind of fabrics! Generally I like more prints – perhaps because then there are more colour tones. I'm wondering, do you need to have a quilt top finished and then you cut it slices or could we do that with blocks? I don't know if they match then. x Teje
