Well, I may not be at Quilt Market, but I am happy to have something hanging there! I recently finished a quilt pattern for RJR Fabrics called “Fair Day”, made with the line “Pie Making Day” by Brenda Ratliffe of Pink Castle Fabrics. The sashing is all 1 1/2″ finished HSTs, and the pattern will be available for free on the RJR site soon! I’ll let you know when that goes live. The finished quilt is 72 1/2″ x 72 1/2″. I can’t wait for this one to come back to me!
But for now, I can satisfy myself by looking at pictures.
This is actually a much older quilt, the “Linton Block”. When I first saw it flipping through a collection of old blocks, I new it would look great with wild amounts of color! The original block is smaller, so I resized it so that the HSTs would be able to be cut using any one of the die cutters (that really saves a ton of time and helps with accuracy!) My favorite part about this quilt is that all the seams nest, which is one of the reasons the points turned out so nicely. I’m submitting it to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side in the Large Quilt Category. Please check out all the quilts (and vote for me if you’re so inclined, ha!)
Congrats Mandy….doing us all proud!!!!

I love the colors in your quilt, and the sashing is amazingly accurate. You make me want to get a die cutter, if it can help me get those kinds of results!
There are actually a few things I did to be this accurate, since only about half of these were die cut! I also didn’t trim anything, and am thinking about doing a scrappy quilt along if people wwere interested. I need to scrap my stash 😉
Quilt Musings says
I would love to learn your secrets! I could definitely use some improvement in the accuracy department. And I don’t know how, the more scraps I try to use up, the more I seem to have! lol
Oh, goodness, look at all those little triangles! Really pretty, I like the mix of the tiny HST sashing and the HST blocks.
Thank you! The little triangles really make it, I think. It was a very happy quilt to make, once I figured it all out, ha!

I love the bold graphic impact that the little HSTs make. Wild amounts of color is always the right choice. Well done!
Thank you! I can’t wait for this to come back home.
