Slash and Sew Quilt for Lindsay

Slash and Sew Quilt for Lindsay

This is for Lindsay who is bright and colorful so I knew the quilt I was making for her would need to be made of lots of fun color combinations. I used a stack and slash method by stacking 4 different fabrics for the 4 block by making random cuts and sewing within each color group.

I quilted it with a decorative stitch around each block and then did free form waves in between each row.

This was so much fun to make! This is queen sized.

Gypsy Picnic Quilt

This was a fast easy quilt from 2 packs of Charm Squares. I love these Gypsy Caravan fabrics from Amy Butler! I had a charm pack of textured fabric tones that serendipitously goes great together.
I quilted it with a meandering stippling. Then for the boarder made curved tier templates based on the length and width of each size.


This quilt will get lots of use!
