Kristin supplied me with a spool that was ALMOST a perfect match, so I could finish the quilt without having to wait for a thread order to arrive. (Thank you, Kristin!) It is really hard to lose momentum when you are so close to a finish!
Connecting Threads. This color has been discontinued, but Persian blue would be a lovely substitute. Kona colors that are similar to this are Storm and Nautical. The quilt measures 60" x 72". It's scrap project #180!
I wrote up a pattern for this quilt, too! Rather than giving exact measurements for each piece, the blocks are pieced improvisationally. There are plenty of tips and diagrams included in the pattern that will help you be successful with improvisational piecing, even if it is your first time. The pattern is available for purchase in my Craftsy shop. It will be on sale for $6.00 for the next few days. After that, it will be regularly priced at $9.00.
This was a fun quilt to make! I want to make another version (of course!) with a solid background, but with a variety of colored scraps so that the quilt looks like confetti. Wouldn't that be fun?
