It's a very simple design, featured on Connecting Threads website, sold as a kit made up of the Mastermind line of fabrics. I wanted a larger quilt, and didn't need a pattern, so I just ordered extra stacks and fabric for borders.
|Not my design.......adapted from a kit seen on Connecting Threads, just adding blocks and changing the border coloring|
I finished piecing the blocks.......I simply cut the 10 inch squares at 3", 2", and 5inches, and switched out the middle piece for each block.
Today I trimmed the blocks down to 8 1/2 inches each. I had thought that they would finish at that measure AFTER piecing the quilt, but lost more than I expected in the piecing. So the quilt is going to come out a bit smaller than I had figured, but it will definitely be usable on a twin-sized bed. Seth is still in a youth bed, but I've made bigger quilts for Zoe and Timothy, so I wanted Seth's bigger quilt to be the next one I send to them.
I'd love to make a quilt for Kelley and Tim's green bedroom, but she's sized me out by getting a king-sized bed. I just don't make quilts that big. I already don't know where I'm going to lay Seth's quilt out in order to see a good color placement of the blocks!
This fabric collection is so vibrant and out of my usual range/style. The finish on the fabric is soft and silky, and I really like it. I'm not prewashing the fabrics for the borders, since I didn't want to wash all the 10-inch precut squares. It's a rare thing for me to buy a collection, but Connecting Threads makes the choice so affordable, especially when they go 40% off !
