Intulawoven - finished top!

I've been posting about this one for a while - mostly in my WIP Wednesday posts, but the top has finally been finished!

Confession time: I'm not actually all that fond of making HSTs. It's not the sewing and cutting I mind so much, it's the ironing and trimming. sometimes it feels endless.

So much Tula! #aussiecharmalong

But I do love the patterns that can come about from HSTs. This one is from the book 'Crazy For Scraps' by Sally Schneider. 10 HSTs + 6 blank squares make for a 16" finished block that is then rotated through 90degrees repeatedly to give the 'Interwoven' look.

It's being entered in the Tula Pink Charm-Along Linky Party over at Ms Midge.

I think I'll just quilt this one simply with an all-over fiery curls pattern. The stunning is in the pattern, and I don't think the quilting should detract from that.

If I don't manage a separate, self-designed quilt for the Sydney Quilt Show, I think this one will be one of the entries for 2016.

  1. I like the colour play with this quilt and yes, definitely quilt it simply so the pattern can shine.

    1. An all-over in fiery curls will be simple and effective, I think. I just have to do the backing and book the time on the quilting machine...

    1. It's pretty spectacular when colour-blended. I kind of want to try it with single-colour strands next.
