Yet another finish from the July/August Book of the Month choice, Black & White, Bright & Bold. Introducing a baby size version of Tile Works.
Isn't it pretty??? And yes, it's Blue & White, not Black & White! Just as nice in blue, this pattern lends itself to any color.
But why not black? Two reasons: I'm not that fond of straight black and white for a baby quilt, and hubby needed another boy quilt. So blue it is!
Once the fabric pieces were cut, the blocks were quick to put together with chain piecing. Using a tiny blue dot-on-white fabric in the blocks, I didn't have enough for sashing. No biggie, solid white was a good substitute.
Since almost all of the fabrics had stars in them, I chose a new-to-me star panto, with a pale blue Glide thread.
Just what was I thinking?? Unfortunately, this star panto is not one of my favorites. Far too many pauses for the points, and the panto was rather straight, not zig-zag for nesting. In the photo below, you can see the unquilted channel in the middle that separates the two rows of the panto.
Not the prettiest, but at least the whole design looks good on the quilt.
Now I'm eyeing another quilt from the same book, maybe This and That, though in another color as I have plenty of girl quilts! Any suggestions? Teal? Orange?
Well, while I'm off deciding that, have a great weekend quilting!
