Over the past couple of weekends and a few weeknights, two charm packs of Kate Spain’s Cuzco line have started to become the front of Charm Crossing by Tammie Schaffer for Moda Bake Shop. I pinned this quilt ages ago but just got working on it a few weeks ago on starting-and-cutting things spree.
I love all the peacock motifs in Cuzco and the color palette is one of my favorites.
The hourglass blocks came together really quickly, with the use of a Quilter’s Quick Quarter ruler. No, before this project, I didn’t know such a thing existed. Yes, I spent probably 40 minutes googling “quilting 1/4 inch ruler with center slot” and things like that to try to figure out what this thing was from the picture in the pattern.
I sewed the Yankee Puzzle blocks during a Top Gear marathon a couple weeks ago. Last weekend, I laid them out, sewed them into rows, and then sewed the rows into the top!
I noticed that the whites I used (Bella white for the hourglasses and Kona white for the sashing and edges) are different. Bella is a little more yellow than Kona. It doesn’t bother me and I think that once it is quilted and crinkly, it will be fine. I have the back and the quilting planned out and soon this will be a FO instead of a WIP!
This is my first time linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
Don’t forget, there’s still time to enter my 100th post giveaway! I’ll draw a name on Saturday night, around 7:00 EST!
