Sunday is for WIPs: no. 2
I’ve had to skip a couple Sundays already, but I’m back today! I haven’t had a chance to work on the Concord overlapping rings quilt from a couple weeks back, but I did take a few minutes to piece a backing and send a finished quilt-top off to a long arm quilter!
The Project: Buffalo Plaid in Little Tree Fabric
This is a buffalo plaid quilt I’ve been working on a little bit the past few Christmases. After seeing Holly at Maker Valley make a bunch of cute buffalo plaid quilts, I was itching to make one! I didn’t follow any particular pattern – just laid out a bunch of 5″ squares and then “stretched out” the design into the border. It seems like there are already quite a few free tutorials for buffalo plaid quilts – but none with the border like mine (to my knowledge). Do you think it be worth sharing in a later post? I do want to make a few more quilts like these.
Fabric is Little Tree by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics (now out of print). Backing is Snuggle (minky) from Moda. Can’t wait to see how this one turns out after Marion Bott (my long arm quilter) gets her hands on it.
Have you ever made a buffalo plaid quilt? Let me know in the comments below.
