Finished Quilt: Coral & Yellow Quilt As You Go


You know that feeling you get when you create a project that is the perfect combination of your favorite things? A warm, fuzzy, jubilant, happiness...that is how this quilt makes me feel.



You may remember when I started this coral & yellow quilt a few years ago. The quilt has been complete for a while now, but I realized that I never posted any photos of the finished product...oops! The colors in this quilt are some of my very favorites and the combination of the beautiful prints and the fun scrappy style just makes me smile.




This is the "Four Square With Flair" pattern from Butterfly Express Quilting (you can find the pattern in their online store). It is a quilt as you go pattern with the blocks joined by "hinge" strips that form the window pane style sashing. If you have never tried the hinge joining method I definitely recommend it. I love that I can quilt the blocks individually and then join them together at the end.


For the most part I stuck to the pattern, but I did decide to arrange the back squares in a more random distribution, rather than the "Four Square" design of the pattern. I love that the back of the quilt really shows off the individual fabric prints, while the front blends them together with the strips forming the abstract diamond pattern.


As you can see, I had some help with this photo shoot. My little helper was especially smitten with the quilt. She had a fun time running and sitting on top of it right after I laid it out nice and smoothly. :)
