Work in Progress Wednesday-#33

Written by Linda Chaney, Mother

This is another fat quarter quilt pattern from Moda that I received from attending CUAQ Therapy at Cut Up and Quilt a couple of months ago. Again 12 different fat quarters plus background are recommended; but we all know that I never follow some directions!



I found some fabrics on sale by Blank Quilting. The varied colored bolts were used in all the main blocks and keystones in the sashing. The different colored screws and nails were used in the sashing and backing.   Drawing from the colors in the bolt and screw fabrics, fabrics from my stash were found to complete the materials needed to surround the main block,

I think it will make a great quilt for any young person (or adult) who likes to construct! Now, how to quilt it? Again, I'm open for suggestions that will use my home sewing machine for the quilting process. I do have to build those skills!

  1. I really like your color scheme for this. You're right, it should appeal to anyone who likes to build. I don't have any good ideas for quilting it, though, sorry.

  2. It's a great quilt. I love the reds in it. I'm also stumped for quilting options.

  5. Well, about the quilting...as you know, I'm quilting something similar myself. I decided against quilting in the ditch around the plus shapes, and I love how the background filler makes ghostly images of the pieced pattern on the back! Something similar would be cool on your quilt too.
