Flying colours quilt

Flying colours quilt top

I finished another quilt top this week. We found a pack of charm squares the collection appeared to be called Flying Colours it was by Moda, I have no idea how old it is. It was another of Mum’s building work/ house renovation finds. I didn’t quite have enough charm square for what I wanted to do, but luckily I found some in our charm squares box. I also found a piece of fabric large enough for the backing & I’m hoping it will fit the piece of wadding I have left over 🤞.

Solar Flare quilt phase 1


I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.

Yellow & pink block

This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.

Block 2
Blocks 2 & 3 together

So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones

Block 4

These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.

Blocks 5 &6

So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.

It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.
