Herringbone quilt

Recently I bought a layer cake in Indian fabric. The idea was to make a herringbone quilt that I had seen on the MSQC Youtube page and looked pretty quick and easy when she made it.

So I thought of giving it a go! Happy that the quilt is made up of HSTs and happier that it is not made the way I make it.

One of my new year resolutions was to do the same blocks in a different way. These are made of quarter square triangle. Thats one off my list !!

After a lot of sewing and chain piecing and rotary cutting and dog ear trimming, the final quilt top was ready.

I am soooo happy with the output that i instantly forgot all the late night sewing it took to get here 🙂
Its lovely and colourful. Here its the little one and his friend who are holding it up for me and in the bottom picture, its me 🙂
Love the stained glass image against the cold winter window …
