My husband just came up with the name of my new quilt. He's calling it "Unbeweevilble". Totally cute and I love it.
I was able to cut enough for the whole quilt from my stash!! No shopping required which was super great for me this time of year. Here are my 9 quilt block piles:
pieces cut... ready to sew!
Here are the quarter blocks:
And here is a finished block:
First finished block
And maybe you can see why this quilt was so aptly named... every so often there's a piece with weevils on it!
Here is the full quilt pattern... what do you think? For me, this is a practice quilt to work on my cutting and quarter inch sewing to make good points in the quilt. I personally need ALOT of work in this department, so this is a fun challenge.
Self-made Interwoven Pattern.
Each block is 24"x24" so it will be a larger quilt when finished. This is good, I love a big quilt... and with beetles!! The circles are interesting... I thought I could paper piece them until I realized you can't really paper piece curves. So, a little change and a lot of curved piecing in this one.
I'm very happy to be sewing in the new house. It's warm and cozy and I am extremely thankful everyday. This quilt will be oozing with positive energy once I'm done with it. Even if my points are not perfect ;)
