Here's the design I posted to the QDAD group on 9/3/14:
I started with the cross and crown quilt block and changed it up, adding flying geese rows down the vertical and horizontal centers, and changing the corner units to a sort of bear paw shape. The QDAD group has a suggested palette each day and that's where these colors came from.
I wanted to make my mini with just one of these complex blocks, so here's what I posted to IG when I was considering this for my mini quilt design.
And then I changed the colors (I actually used another QDAD palette) and added a sawtooth border as seen below:
I figured out the cutting and triangle math and sewed it up! Here is the finished quilt, 18" square:
Here's a closeup of the quilting:
I've started another one just like it for me to keep.
A couple other things--I made some mug rug Valentines and sent one along as an extra with my mini:
I turned and topstitched the edges instead of binding such small quilts.
And, last week I made a 12th man quilt;go Seahawks!
Hope you have a great week!
