If you've come here by way of the Blogger's Quilt Festival, thanks for visiting. Feel free to look around here at Quilting Mod. I have compiled quilt alongs, free patterns, and a listing of linky parties for your viewing pleasure.
I'm going to have Houston Quilt Market coverage coming up shortly, as well as a fantastic giveaway, so I recommend you follow via Bloglovin' using the button below, or your preferred method in the sidebar so you can easily find your way back after you check out all the fun at the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
Today's show & tell was created for the American Made Brand Tiny Quilt Challenge. While it was not accepted into the exhibit, it was a welcome distraction from my impending baby delivery. The Passacaglia quilt from Millefiori Quilts was my source of inspiration.
To construct my design, I used pattern blocks, which are hand-on math materials for elementary students. (I was running a little low on the orange squares.)
Instead of employing English Paper Piecing, I combined paper-piecing, hand appliqué, and traditional piecing complete with ample y-seams. While unlikely to be the most advisable construction method, it was undoubtably effective in preventing me from ruminating about the unpleasantries of giving birth.
Louise at I'm Feeling Crafty, Alida at Tweety Loves Quilting, and Stephanie at Spontaneous Threads created.
