Hi there! I'm Amy from Amy's Creative Side, where I'm gearing up for the next installment of Blogger's Quilt Festival. Stop over and learn what it's all about. I'm excited to share my quilt project here with you today (it's my first MBS tutorial!!). These soft prints from Urban Chiks inspired me to look through vintage quilting books and design this quilt, with a nod to our rich quilting heritage. I hope you give it a try, and share your pictures!
Dream On Layer Cake
5/8 yard Grass 31064-24 for center squares
2 yards Blue Moon 31065-14 for triangles
2 yards Crush 31063-21 for inner border
2 3/4 yards Pink Passion 31061-11 for outer border
3/4 yard Grass 31062-13 for binding
6 yards Moonlight Blue 31067-16 for backing
To make 30 blocks, select 30 layers from your Layer Cake, and cut 4 - 4 3/4" squares from each. I chose the layers with the most contrast to the yardage that I added.
Next, add the half-triangle to the corners.
Cut borders from the length of fabric, at 3 1/2" for the inner, and 6 1/2" for the outer border. Measure through the center of the quilt top for the best fitting borders. Add the borders to the sides, then top and bottom.
Quilt, bind and enjoy your new quilt!
What do you think? Any Vintage Dreams in your future? I hope so!
