I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Dashing Hearts, My First Quilting Pattern

After receiving positive feedback for my 'Dashing Hearts' quilt, I have put together a pattern that will be available on Craftsy.

IIt may look complicated, but it is a fairly quick project.  I completed the quilt, including the quilting in about a week.

I am excited, but a little anxious, as this is completely outside my experience and comfort zone.  Below are a few photos. The quilt finishes at 36 inches square.

It incorporates some of my favourite things - Churn Dash blocks, yo yos, and applique.   I was able to incorporate an on-point central block.  This is something I haven't tried before.

Making the quilt was such fun!  I used Moda Fig Tree fabrics.
