The design is super simple which is intentional to show off the beautiful fabric. It’s Joel Drewberry’s Pendant Quilt but with a simplification. I found a much easier way to add the triangles than the way it’s described in the pattern. Something like a double Y-seam and then a lot of twisting and turning. After 8 tries trying to decode the instructions and where it just didn’t work, 8 times undoing with the seam ripper and an unsuccessful visit to youtube for instructions I was ready to quit. The cuts were in front of me when I suddenly saw the light *LOL* . Just add one triangle to the top piece e.g. the right one and then add the opposite triangle to the bottom piece and then pin and sew.
I made a simple zig-zag quilting pattern and the filling is cotton. The white is Moda Snow (so not really white) and the background is dark grey and some leftovers. I went with a small dotted grey for the border.
I think my Goddaughter, who is 14 (unbelievable… It seems like only yesterday her Mum and I were out dancing most weekends *sigh*), will be very happy to finally have her own quilt.
I am linking up to Amylouwho's Sew & Tell. I missed it last time... big buhhh on me for that.
