Check out my week 8 blocks.
We've dove into triangle blocks this week. I really thought they would slow me down. However, since I work assembly line style by cutting out many blocks in advance this has allowed me to chain piece the step for the HSTs and "snowball" piecing for many blocks, then on my second pass of piecing, I've been able to finish up numerous blocks at a time. It's a little bit slower than the precious blocks, but not too bad.
I'm not so sure about my decision on block 36 to swap out the piece of background fabric for the chipmunk's tail. I really love blocks 40 and 41. :-)
Check out my week 7 blocks.
I'm so excited to share that my first magazine pattern is out today in Modern By the Yard, the free quarterly e-zine by Benartex. I had a great time working with a bright summer palette of blues that made me think of relaxing by the pool. I hope you enjoy my graphic mini quilt pattern. Please share pictures if you make one. You can use #sarahgoerquilts on social media.
When I created my quilt I wanted to feature that navy dot fabric without cutting it up, which led to some interesting construction methods. ;-) I chose dense quilting using a variety of motifs in the white sections to really make the blues pop!
I hope you enjoy this latest issue of Modern by the Yard. Head over the Sew in Love with Fabric for previews of all the projects and a link to the full issue which you can view online or download as a PDF. This beautiful cover quilt was created by Alison from Little Bunny Quilts.
