This Was Incredibly Fun!!

Created this awesome top yesterday afternoon--yes, just one afternoon!


Convergence quilt top

Based on Ricky Tims' Convergence Quilts book,


Convergence Quilts by Ricky Tims


this quilt was so easy and fun to put together - I want to do another! Just like going on an amusement ride for the first time, and running to get back in line to do it again.  Silly, I know, but it really was a lot of fun!

Here's a bit of the assembly.
My fabric choice was truly impulsive.

It was a hey, I'll just use this and see what happens. 

Then the first step, cutting different width strips.

Then sewing the strips together after shuffling them.

The final convergence.

And the convergence with borders.

How awesome is that??  

This measures approximately 37 inches square, perfect for another baby quilt. Added it to the tops that need quilting. Right now, I'm in line to get back on that ride!

Happy Quilting!

  1. I have Ricky Tims Convergence book and did a practice block but got no further. Seeing your results with just the red and white, get my creative buzz going again. Looks great.
