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 …

Looks great! I’ve yet to do a herringbone quilt. It’s on my ‘someday’ list!
Thank you for your kind comment. Lets do a sew along someday and we will both have a Herringbone quilt each at the end 🙂
Its a lovely colourful quilt.I like the way you do so much in such little time.
Beautiful! I made a purple baby herringbone quilt for my neighbor a couple of years ago, but I would love to make one for myself. Thanks for sharing!
Such a pretty quilt top! Love how those fabrics look against the light from the window. So colourful!
