Today, I'm sharing a fun quilt that I've just *almost* finished. I'm hand stitching the binding down now, so I should have finished pictures for you by Friday. <3
For this project, I used Handmade by Bonnie & Camille (can you tell I'm a big fan of Bonnie & Camille yet?) and this pattern tutorial by Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co.
I'll admit that I did need to take a little more piecing time. Sewing on the bias can be a little tricky, but it's so worth it with this pattern!
Laying it out was a little tricky...I wanted the super scrappy look, but I didn't wants spots like that white/red block with the green block that have the same print.
Here's what I ended up with for the top!
I love the size of this one. It's roughly 58" x 68". This is my daughter's twin bed. It could be great for a kid without being too big.
I decided to do straight line quilting, so I broke out some painter's tape to mark parallel lines on every other black line. This gave me even spacing without marking the quilt. I also quilted along the sides of all other black lines and then I ditch stitched across the centers of all the diamonds.
I'll should have the finished project to show you on Friday! Have you tried this pattern before? Do you love Bonnie & Camille? Let me know in the comments!
In the meantime, have a blessed day!
I'd love to connect with you on Bloglovin', Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!
