Piece and Quilt with Precuts Blog Hop and Giveaway!

I had the great fortune to make Christa's quilt Windows from her brand new book Piece and Quilt with Precuts!  I made mine about half the size of the full pattern to fit on my sewing room door.




I started with some fun strips.  I had enough of my background fabric to make a really large table runner or bed runner.  I'm going to hang it on my sewing room door as it's about the right size for that.


I laid out the pieces to make sure my colors were all spread out.  Christa's directions are really clear and easy to follow.


I ran out of my background fabric, but had two similar shades of pink to choose from to put on a final border.  I opted for the darker color instead of the light.


Then I got to have fun quilting my quilt!  Christa has great suggestions in her book.  I am not as good at stitching Crazy Eight quilting as she is so I opted for matchsticks in the gray and outer border and then did a design on my own, arc swirls in the background.




I also used a striped binding which just adds so much sparkle!



 The final quilt all ready for my door!
