so it shouldn't come as a surprise that fat quarter shop wanted to highlight their top 10 videos of 2015.
they asked me to join along with a few projects.
today, i'm going to talk about the birchen quilt.
this free quilt pattern was designed by art gallery fabrics in collaboration with fat quarter shop.
there is an instructional youtube video that can walk you through the construction process.
i don't know what i would've done without the video. not even kidding.
this design called for triangles on a roll, which was new to me. (y'all know how i love my HSTs.)
and on top of that, there were some bias edges to contend with. (which isn't my favorite task.)
i knew that i couldn't commit to making the whole quilt, so i planned to make a wall quilt.
thus far, i've made one block.
i love the simplicity of this one block with the contrast between the cream and white fabrics.
i think it gives the design a bit more depth.
but seeing as i'm a woman, i could change my mind and make the other 3 blocks. HA.
now, it wouldn't be a celebration without inviting some awesome bloggers to sew along.
hop on over to see their birchen quilt creations:
