Stacks and stacks

I love that this project has pushed me a little out of my normal, color-wise. I don’t think I would have had the restraint to make a (mainly) blue and white quilt, if it wasn’t for the Lavender quilt pattern in Jodi Godfrey’s new book, The Seedling Quilts.

My approach to machine-piecing this quilt is based on the diamond-shaped “block” presented in the book. I noticed that the triangles that make up the block could be joined without any y-seams or partial seams, making for a fun little challenge for my angled patchwork skills.

Once the blocks were made, it was just a matter of joining them as rows and then into a mini quilt top. With a little care, that’s stacks and stacks of triangles in a nifty geometric configuration!

This silly goose girl was on pin duty. She was thrilled to hand me pins, one by one, through the sewing machine harp space while I pinned the rows. And in case you’re wondering, the photos were her idea. Any time I get out my camera to photograph my projects, she’s quick to insist “me, me!”

I included pops of golden yellow, jade and petal pink, inspired by the flowers in my inspiration print. I think they add a fun splash. This quilt feels so summery! Next I’ll be piecing together solid blue fabrics for the oversized border section. I can’t wait to see how these triangles look when swimming in all that blue.
