Summer's End

Project Description

What are you most proud of? For a beginner, I thought I did a good job of matching up my seams. It was also my first binding. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use lots of pins on those seams, and press well. You don't have to overplan the color placement in each block. If you're using a collection, you can't go wrong.

Q&A with Bonnie Wilson

Carolyn Hoxton asked:
Wow, I really like this quilt, did you have a pattern? Sometimes I like to just make my own patterns up, other times, I work from a pattern, or combine the ideas.
Bonnie Wilson answered:
It's the altered squares pattern from Quilting Quickly course. Start with the same size squares (like a layer cake). Cut half of them into 4 equal size smaller squares (horizontally/vertically); then cut the rest of the larger squares from corner to corner to make 4 triangles; mix them all up and sew them back together.
DeGramma asked:
Great use of color/fabrics! Really love this quilt, looks like a 'guys' quilt too, thanks for sharing, you did a lovely job.
Bonnie Wilson answered:
Thank you; I made this for my husband, it was the first "larger" thing I made. I sent it to Missouri Star to be quilted - this was before I learned to quilt my own things. They did a super job!
