Bright Puzzle Pieces

I have had this fabric for a long time.  I bought it for a baby quilt for a friend – probably about 20 years ago! – and apparently I bought so much it just keeps giving and giving.  I go through spurts of taking out fabric, cutting it up and putting it into bags for piecing later, and I recently found this bag tucked away.  I saw a similar quilt in a store once, and I really liked how it looked like puzzle pieces.  I drew up a pattern based on my memory of it, and thought it would be a good one for longarm practice.

It went together really fast.  One really exciting Saturday I had just updated the ProStitcher version on my machine and wanted to try it out.  This guy seemed like a great candidate.  I loaded him up, and in a relatively short period of time he was done.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out:

This photo didn’t turn out arranged as nicely as I’d like, but you can see some of the details on the front.

Here is the back:

I like the circles!

It was a quick one, but I’m pretty happy with it.  I’ll likely donate it to our local Project Linus.

 

I do think that I’m about done with this fabric, so I’m putting it into a scrap bag to try and sell it at the ABQ Modern Quilt Guild Destatsh sale next August.

A quick finish, but it was on my Q4’17 FAL list.  I’ll link it up to the FAL linky at the end of the quarter.

  1. Now this is fun…and it’s giving me ideas for donation quilts…I have a lot of fat quarters that need to be used up. Awesome.

  2. The circles are a great choice for the geometric piecing – love it. And I love how you chose the colours to create the illusion of the puzzle without actually matching the fabrics. Nicely done. On behalf of the global hosts of the Finish A Long, thank you for participating!
