WIP Wednesday - Amélie's Quilt

pinwheel collage

I've decided this week to join up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday and show you Amélie's quilt that I have been working on. I made all those half-square triangles using Thangles, which Amy (Badskirt) very kindly mailed to me to try. I really liked using them and I will be sure to use them again.

The top is all pieced and the quilt sandwiched, ready to quilt. It has taken me weeks of pinning designs on Pinterest, and sketching in my sketchbooks, but think I have finally decided how I am going to quilt it. It will involve stepping a little outside my comfort zone, though.

  1. That is gorgeous! I WISH my Mum had told me about Thangles BEFORE I cut out a million HST's for a quilt I'm doing! If I never see another HST in my life I will be a happy girl! lol

    1. The Thangles definitely made this project much easier, especially since I started with a jelly roll. I couldn't imagine cutting out all those little triangles!
