Hello friends! If you had a hard time finding TGIFF with me this week, I apologize. My web serving was affected by the hurricane in Florida and I had to temporarily host through Instagram (which is a little unorthodox for TGIFF). It's Friday morning my time and the web service is back up so I'm sharing my project here now. I hope you'll link up your finishes below for TGIFF.
I *finally* finished a quilt this week that has been in the works for quite a while. It was quilted by @threadedquilting back in January 2020 and has been waiting to be bound.
This 45” x 63” lap quilt is one of three sized in my Scattered Squares pattern which will be released next month. Be sure you're on my mailing list so you don't miss the announcement when it's released.
Please link up your FINISHES below with me for TGIFF (Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday).
I am excited to release my Floating Hexagons pattern. I originally designed Floating Hexagons in 2017 and worked with amazing testers at the end of the year. It has been a long time coming, and I'm so pleased to be sharing it with you today. I was inspired to work with solids, and I wanted to work with a block-based design with a twist, playing with placement of my hexagons to create interesting negative space. Floating Hexagons is a beginner friendly block-based design in three sizes.
Last month I shared my Petting Zoo version of Floating Hexagons. This variation features different fabrics in each of the hexagons.
As a bonus, you can choose to make five blocks from the baby or lap size quilt to make a table runner, as I did for Modern by the Yard for my Fall Fleurish runner.
A great big thank you to my testers, Anja, Laura, and Mary. (See their versions here.) Since I chose to change the construction method of my hexagons after my testers created their quilts, I worked with Sarah Ruiz for technical editing. She was fabulous to work with. I appreciate her keen eye and I look forward to working with her again.
Floating Hexagons quilt pattern contains three sizes:
- Baby: 30 1/2" x 42 1/2"
- Lap: 45 1/2" x 63 1/2"
- Throw: 60 1/2" x 84 1/2"
My pattern includes:
- fabric requirements and cutting instructions in clear charts
- detailed precision piecing instructions, tested and professionally edited
- clear diagrams
- three block sizes
- a coloring sheet for planning your design
- quilting ideas
- instructions for creating binding
- photos of testers' quilts for inspiration
It is my pleasure to share my latest quilt pattern for Modern By the Yard, the free quarterly e-zine by Benartex. I was excited for a chance to work with Christa Watson's new Modern Marks line of fabric. I love the geometric designs on her prints and the bold, saturated color!
My design super fast one-seam blocks. The placement of the blocks gives the quilt it's tossed design, like confetti! It coordinates so well with the ocean wall in my daughter's room.
I chose one of my favorite prints, Half Ovals in Teal for my backing fabric. It is free motion quilted with a triangular meander motif using 50wt Aurifil.
I'd love to see your project if you make this project or any of my other patterns. You can use #sarahgoerquilts on social media.
I hope you enjoy this issue of Modern by the Yard. Head over the Sew in Love with Fabric for previews of all the projects in issue #7 and a link to the full issue which you can view online or download as a PDF. This beautiful cover quilt, Icicles, was designed by Chris at made by ChrissieD.
