Patchwork on Point and 100 Quilts for Kids

Phew! I’m back from a week away on vacation, my daughter has now officially started the 1st Grade, and I am finally finding a bit more time at the sewing machine! In fact, yesterday I managed to finished quilting and binding my latest quilt, Patchwork on Point.

This quilt features a variety of fabrics from Heather Dutton for Modern Yardage. You can read more about these particular fabrics in this blog post. I paired Heather’s fabrics with a few coordinating prints from my stash. I really love the colors in this quilt. I think it would be good for a girl or a boy.

The design is simple, squares on point, but I created a bit of interest by grouping prints in sets of four. I wanted this quilt to have a fluffy look and texture, so I only quilted the negative space in a free motion meandering design. The quilt measures 45″ x 45″.

Some of you may be wondering how this one washed up, since the Modern Yardage fabric has the design printed on it. I didn’t use any special detergents, just my Kirkland Free and Clear liquid from Costco (because I think the final recipient will be washing it in whatever they have at home). I would say it reacted as expected. A bit of fading on the darker colors. I don’t think it takes away from the quilt in any way, but just something to keep in mind as you select your fabrics for your project. You can read more about the suggested washing/drying for the fabric here.

I am donating this quilt as part of Katie of Swim Bike Quilt‘s 100 Quilts for Kids quilt drive. If you haven’t had a chance to link up your quilt to donate, you have until September 30th. It’s a great cause and a wonderful way for you to help in your own community. And there’s prizes too. :)

    Great quilt and idea with grouping four together. It’s so important and wonderful that you donate your quilts to a charity. It’s good for all of us whatever our charity may be. I am presently looking into supporting Quilts for Valor.

      Thanks Penny! There’s no pattern, but if you just cut your squares and lay them out on point (like diamonds), and then sew your diagonal rows together, you will have your quilt top! :)

    Just wondering how long the quilt top took you. Did you strip piece any of it? Thanks.

      Oh gosh, I’m not sure how long it took. I worked on it here and there in my spare time. If you had a bit of committed time all at once, I’m sure it wouldn’t take too long! I didn’t do any strip piecing since I didn’t plan my design ahead of time.
