I quickly worked through my flying geese and paper-pieced 4-point stars. At this point, I had thought these 4 empty squares would be the yellow background. But I had enough fabric leftover that I decided to piece square-in-a-square blocks.
Sewing the rows together.
Then I had to decide how I was going to finish the quilt. This was one of my options.
Obviously, I didn’t have enough fabric. But with my scraps I came up with this version.
And I love it! Those little triangles so cute?!
For the back I included the rest of my leftovers and raided my stash for golden yellows. It was a fun improv back.
As I was completing this quilt, I thought it might be a great beginner’s quilt. A variety of blocks, using classic quilting shapes. It looks good on-point or as a regular grid layout. This size (46″x46″) sewed up fairly quickly, but it would be easy to enlarge it. Maybe another project – write up a pattern for it.
