I have always loved KT fabrics, had a few in my stash, and decided to supplement my fabrics before I started the project. It's not always easy to get to a quilt shop in the winter, but Canada Post does wonders!
Between my new purchases and what I had in my stash, the fabrics came from three different Nova Scotian quilt shops: A Needle Pulling Thread in Digby, Mrs. Pugsley's Emporium in Amherst, and Quilting on the Mira in Sydney. Now you can see why I call it the Nova Scotian KT Layered Star!
The quilt measures 29" square and uses a variety of easy blocks made with Lynne's technique of layering the fabrics and sewing primarily along the pinked edges. The centre star was a breeze to make...
and the checkerboard frame came together quickly.
The flying geese were so much fun!
How could I resist pinwheels?
Once it was put together, I machine quilted it in a cross-hatch pattern.
I didn't start the project until all the four posts were published. Then it was just a matter of a few days until the quilt was finished! If you want a fun project, visit Lynne's blog for the instructions HERE.
After that I decided to play with some Woolie Flannel charm packs by Bonnie Sullivan. I made HST's out of them using some neutral yardage I had, added a border, and have a little cozy lap quilt just waiting for the quilting!
This quilt measures 50" x 62" and was a great way to put those charms to work!
Thanks so much for coming by! It's a great day for quilting!
