One more photo from Star Gaze quilt classes – this one is from Mary. The colors reflect the Spanish flag. Guess what colors it has – yes, red and yellow.
On the other hand I have finished writing the quilt pattern “Fire & Ice” for the classes. I have pieced nearly all the blocks, over the weekend I should be able to sew the quilt top together. This time it is a “quicker” quilt. Both cutting and piecing is not so time consuming as with the Star Gaze quilt. I have opted for log cabin and bento box blocks. Both blocks are good for practicing – not only precise cutting but also precise sewing. Here a preview of the “fire” log cabin block :
The finished blocks are 12″ x 12″. I have written this pattern either for a single (60″ x 84″) or for a double bed (84″ x 84″). As soon as I have my quilt finished, I shall update my pattern section and post a pdf.
One more word to the fabrics. All are Kona Solids from Robert Kaufman. The colors are exceptional, love the warm reds, pinks and oranges. But my favorite ones are in the bento box block – you can see them in my next post!!
Happy quilting, Barbora
