There are 88 HSTs 6" finished - 48 x 60 inches.
This is so easy and the layout is totally random - usually I obsess with placement, but in this quilt the point was to let go - and I did!
All of the solids come from a local fabric store - the quality is comparable to Modas solids - but the price is lower.
On the back is a print from IKEA which I have been hoarding forever - just waiting to use it like this. Now I need to buy more! And I plan to sew more of this quilt with different colors in place of the aqua. There are numbers written on the back and I noticed this:
|the year I was born!|
I pieced with 50 wt Aurifil 2024 and since I piece everything with this thread I bought a big cone of it from ebay.
I quilted with 40 wt Aurifil 2615 because it is a light grey that would not be totally white on the darker fabrics. In one corner I started quilting 1/2 inch apart but I gave up and left it like that so that I could sew on a linen tape so I can hang the quilt when not in use.
