Do you watch The Midnight Quilt Show with Angela Walters? I do! I love seeing how things are made in "real life" and I like that she drinks wine and eats chocolate while she does it. I may do that too, just saying.
On one episode she showed the On Point Quilt (you can download the pattern for free HERE). I really liked that this quilt looks like complicated triangles but it has a really neat processes that turns long tubes into triangles. I love time saving tricks. The other nice thing about this pattern is that it is Jelly Roll friendly. I happened to win a Jelly Roll recently so I was in!
I started making the quilt (with my sparkly new Jelly Roll) and realized it would be a great beginner quilt if we made it just a bit smaller into a baby size. So with some amazing Dear Stella fabric from Patch Halifax, I made this sample and am now teaching it to some budding quilters at Patch.
I do plan to go back to my Jelly Roll version, and will make it to the original pattern size (66 x 71). So stay tuned for that finish. I am using it as as sample at class so hope to have finished with my students!
You should totally check out this pattern if you want to learn a new trick for triangles.
Annnnnnd....believe it or not, I am now caught up on telling you about my quilty business from the last few months! Phew!
Of course I always have one or ten projects on the go, so don't go too far. I am sure there will be more of me here soon. Now that summer is winding down the itch to sew is even greater!
