At the last day of summer, according to the calendar, I am showing off the Enchanted Forest quilt with a picture taken in the glorious late afternoon sun. Tutorial from Stacey Day from @staceyinstitches .
The first block I made is shown below. This quilt is a real scrap buster, using lots of 2.5" strips. I also had a piece of the most perfect fabric for the diamonds in between the stripe blocks.
Big blocks of 16.5" square made a quick assembly of the quilt. There was not enough of the white star fabric to make the "advanced quilt" with diamonds on the side, corners and in between the 16.5" blocks as Stacey describes in the tutorial, but I think it looks great anyway in the "beginner quilt" layout.
I used a lovely duvet cover for backing. The finished quilt measures 48" x 64", and is completely made from stash and scraps. The binding is also scrappy.
This is my eighth charity quilt for the year 2021, and number 72 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.
Keep on quilting!
