My Sapphire Lane Quilt Pattern is now in my shop and ready for download!!
When I was designing this pattern, I was trying to create a Large block, when repeated would create an additional pattern. I also didn’t want it to have a lot of half square triangles or flying geese. I also wanted to use this stack of gorgeous Indah Batiks by Me + You Fabrics.
I decided to go with strip piecing, to make the blocks go together super quick. The pattern also includes the amount of squares needed if you decided not to go with strip piecing or make a scrappy version.
These are 21 inch finished blocks, so you only need 4 blocks for the baby size!
I wanted to keep the quilting simple on this one. So I marked out a line 1/2 inch from each seam (top to bottom). Then I quilted down the center, making all my quilting lines about 1 inch apart. I love quilting this close together, it gives the quilt great texture when washed and dried.
I went with the dark teal as the binding to tie in the center squares. I like to sew my binding to the front of the quilt and then hand sew it to the back.
The weather is finally cooperating here in Washington, so I was able to get a full quilt photo today. The only issue I had was the wind kept wanting to blow my quilt and holder over!
This pattern has instructions to make a baby, throw, queen and king size quilt!!
