A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of gifting my cousin with a throw sized quilt as a wedding shower gift. Because it was the largest sized quilt I ever made to date, and because of the occasion, I paid particular attention as I made it. I tried to really enjoy the process as I went, from the choice of fabric all the way to the quilting and binding.
It all started with choosing some fabrics:
Cutting out all the squares:
Sewing and then trimming the HST’s:
Assembling the HST’s into blocks:
And then the blocks into the quilt:
And then basting and binding and voila!
Here’s the back:
Edited to add: The quilt was made using The Tulip Patch Helix Quilt Pattern. It was simple and straightforward, and as always I can’t stop saying good things about Pink Chalk Fabrics, where the pattern was purchased from (as well as some of the fabric). Just the other day I have a really nice email conversation with their customer service rep, about a package I was worried had gone missing (it hadn’t, it was just held up a bit in customs). So refreshing to not be dealing with corporate mumbo jumbo when dealing with customer service.
