Denyse Schmidt Quarter Square Triangle Quilt - My Last Finish of 2017

Last week I finished my final quilt for 2017. I started it last fall after I won a layer cake of Denyse Schmidt's Stonington line of fabric. As luck would have it, I had recently bought a stack of DS fat quarters on sale at my local quilt shop and this quilt was born.

I made eighty 8" finished quarter square triangles from the fabrics. I was planning on just sewing them together randomly, but when I laid the blocks out it was a bit too crazy. My daughter and I rearranged the blocks until we came up with this. A few stripes of color going vertically and horizontally. I think it gives just the right amount of structure to the crazy. (Love the yellows!)

Some of the fabrics I absolutely love and others I wouldn't have bought (they came in the layer cake), but they all work well together. And they work with the couple of Cotton and Steel prints I threw in too!

  10. Just saw this on Pinterest and love it. That bit of structure you brought to it really works. I love Denyse Schmidt fabrics. It's odd because often when I look at one particular fabric I sort of 'meh' about it. But then when they're all put together - they're fabulous.
