Pixie Sticks Quilt

Pixie Sticks is now a quilt!

That was fast, wasn't it? Once I got the technique down on the first four blocks, the next five sewed up in a snap. 

The original Pixie Sticks pattern is for a table runner, with the blocks turned. But wanting to use up the fabric, I opted for a nine-patch layout, with the blocks also turned. Looks awesome!


Pixie Sticks Quilt full on

With the refreshing, fun vibe this quilt was giving off, and since it's going to be a baby quilt, how about some daisies?

Oh too sweet! And love that border fabric - it's 'Painter's Canvas' for Michael Miller. Reminds me a lot of grunge, another awesome fabric line!

To add to that, a soft, striped pink flannel finishes off the back.

Love, love, love, love, love!

I definitely have to keep the Pixie Sticks blocks in my stash of ideas - makes for a great scrap buster. If you're adventurous, give this a try, or get your hands on a copy of Stash Lab for the full instructions.

Have a great weekend quilting!
