Today another sneak peak of a quilt in the upcoming Fabulously Fast Quilts. This book is a collection of of quilt patterns - some traditional, some all new - with some kind of short-cut method for assembling them. This modern version of a traditional buzz-saw pattern is one of them. (The quilting on this quilt was done by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting.)
This was the last quilt I finished before shipping them all off to the publisher last May. I took this shot as I finished stitching the last bit of the binding, the morning before I took all the quilts to the UPS store. I was feeling so giddy by that point to have this huge project done.
For this quilt I used a lot of Vanessa Christenson's collection Simply Style - which I still really like. There are some great tonal basics in that collection. (Simply Style is still available from the Southern Fabrics (on sale!) and Fat Quarter Shop.)Color Me Happy, is hitting stores right now. I've sewn quilts for Vanessa to use at Quilt Market a few times and she super-generously sent me this bundle as a thank you. (whoa.)
Fat Quarter Shop, Green Fairy Quilts, and coming soon to Pink Castle Fabrics.
