Earlier this year, I bought this Fat Quarter pack
With the colours and prints, I just new it had to be a quilt for Dave. I was hoping to make it for his birthday, but with everything else I had going on (mostly deadline quilts for Sam), I knew it was foolish to add in another deadline quilt.
But now with Time to Sew out of the way, I figured if I started now, I might be able to get it done for him for Christmas.
I wanted the pattern to echo the Celtic theme of the fabric, and I think I found the perfect one in this pattern.
There were no instructions, just a picture on Pinterest. But it didn’t take me long to figure it out.
Using 3.5″ squares, it makes quite a large block – too big to work from my little ironing board. But like the Moda Love quilt, this one is easy to break down into quadrants.
Then it’s just a matter of putting the four quadrants together…
… to create one stunner of a block! And it’s a biggie too – 24.5″ square.
I have enough fabric to do four blocks, though I’d like this to be a a really big quilt, so I may grab a few more pieces for a couple more.
