Accent on Angles Update

Phew! I've had lots of little things to share recently - how about an update on the Accent on Angles quilt? (affiliate link)

I'm currently at the angle/insert strip stage for all of the strip sets,

with many more to go! I kept cutting fabric strips until the fat quarters were gone,

resulting in 7 strip sets of four. That's a lot of strips to make a lot of blocks! This quilt will be bigger than the Autumn Joys quilt in the book, hopefully a lap size.

And I must say the instructions in the book for creating the angle blocks are top-notch! Susan Purney Mark writes full, complete instructions and provides great images - a beginner would have no trouble following along.

Right now it's fun to see the angled strip units coming together, though it does take a bit of time to create them. But once those angled units are sewn together, it's just a matter of cutting into the proper block size to place into a quilt layout. Woo-hoo! Almost there!

Happy Quilting today!

  1. At first I could not figure out how honors that quilt was made, but when I saw the angle inserts it just all made sense. I love your color choices and the fabrics. Keep up the good work!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
