Show + Tell :: In Motion

February 13 2015,

My latest quilt is call "In Motion". These little squares were started sometime last year. These fabrics are the same ones that I made for the Starburst and Sunburst quilt. I love that fabric, and I bought many yards of it. I soon realize that I have to move on.

These are 2" unfinished and 1.5" finished quarter square triangles. Below you can see the progression of the quilt.

The start of the layout

I stack them up on the cutting board and placed rulers and wood on top of it so it would not get messed up.

My columns numbered

Thank you so much for sharing how you make these quilts! I saw Sunburst and Starburst at the Watertown show last year or the year before and was amazed. I had no idea how anyone could do them! Today I saw From the Outside... and From the Inside.. in Watertown and they are gorgeous and amazing too. I love your work.

Hi redavis516 - Thanks for taking the time to visit the blog. I hoped you enjoyed the quilt show at Watertown this past weekend. Aren't the quilts in the show amazing?
