A few readers shared their block and quilt designs in the Learning EQ Facebook group.
This week, I will show you the quilt. The quilt starts with a center of 30" x 30". Borders (including a small flange) are then added. The quit ends up being 39" x 39". A perfect size for a baby quilt. But the techniques are very adaptable to any size quilt.
I ended up making 2 six inch circles, 5 eight inch circles and 1 twelve inch circle. My coping strips were larger in my finished quilt than what I drafted last week. I missed that until after publishing the post and decided to just live with the difference. Let me know if you prefer the smaller or larger coping strips around the applique.
In the borders, I carried over the string pieced concept and drafted three different blocks. Super simple. If you weren't using scraps you could create strip sets and cross-cut them into 4-1/2" segments.
Here are the pieced border blocks.
Here is the quilt from the video. I did a very minor amount of recoloring after the video. Finding just the right background took a little more searching.
Here is my final quilt -- complete with flange and binding.
I would love to see what you decide to do with the circles. Share you pictures in the Learning EQ Facebook post.
