Bokeh Quilt Finish from Dizzy Quilts

Back in the Fall, Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl launched her annual quilt-along. I've participated in her quilt-alongs a couple of times now and when I saw this year's design, I just had to take part again. This year's pattern is called Bokeh. The quilt-along wrapped up just a few days ago and Yvonne is hosting a link-up party on her blog so that all the participants can share their finished quilt.


All of the fabrics I chose for my version came from my stash and the background is Kona White. 

The middle blocks came together very easily ...

A new QAL... from Espritpatch

I might have joined a new QAL.... I know, I know, I have badly fallen behind with the 2 I already joined this year but I just couldn't resist the Flabellum pattern.


And the good news is that I have already cut all the 576 pieces of fabric I need for it. Surely that should speed up the process? Watch this space....

FRAKTAL QUILT from That's Sew Kerry

 A Customer Quilt

A little while ago on Instagram there was a sew-a-long for this wonderful rainbowtastic quilt - Fraktal by Paula Steel Quilts run by Modern Quilt Club using the beautiful 'Phosphur' fabrics by Libs Elliot - my lovely customers joined in and have done an amazing job!
 




Measuring a healthy 72" x 72" this quilt is full of colour and modern flavour. They told me that the first few weeks of cutting and making all the units were challenging but the weekly tasks and community spirit made it all worthwhile. 




I know I am bias but I think they have ...

Sew on those lines, cut through the center, and press.

Super Mario from Espritpatch

 Nearly 10 years later, I have a quilt top.... I was planning on making 15 blocks originally but after I got them all out to check how many more I needed, I realised that 12 blocks would already make a decent size quilt.

After playing with the blocks to pick the sashing, I decided to add a black strip to 2 sides of the blocks.


 That's when I realised that I made a mistake in the question mark block that wasn't square (17x18) so I unpicked and rectified it.

All the blocks are bordered by a 3'' grey ...
