QAL – Postcard from Sweden Quilt
Sandra from MMM Quilts is hosting a quilt along for the Postcard from Sweden quilt. I have had this on my short list of quilts to be made. This is actually for myself, to replace my very ugly, outdated queen size quilt that I wrote about last fall.
Shannon from Flemings Nine really inspired me with her Postcard quilt in her October 5th post. There is not one thing I don’t love about this quilt, and I am especially drawn to the lovely yellow binding.
By the end of October, I had two stacks of fabrics that could be used along with some of the Regatta blues.
And then life happened, and these pretty fat quarters were set to the side. Until now and the quilt along that started on February 14th. We came a little late to the party but I think we can catch up.
Sue has agreed to help me get all the fabrics sorted out. The pattern is available for free on Craftsy if you would like to join in! We are going to enlarge the pattern to a queen size using 6″ blocks. Sixteen by seventeen rows consisting of lots and lots of half-square triangles. I think we can do this. Right?! Here are our first two blocks:
