I have a new quilt book and template to show you!
This is Heather Peterson’s new book called Angles With Ease. I’m loving the projects in the book! And they’re really easy!!!
First I decided to try just a little project for fun. I did this table topper. I think it would be a great tree skirt made with Christmas fabric. I think I could have completed it in an hour if there wasn’t so much chaos at my house all the time!!!
Ok. That was fun! Then I moved on to a project with the new Glamping (by Moda) fabric my mom gave me for my birthday. I just love this quilt! It was so fun to make. Heather gives excellent pressing directions so everything nested and went together perfectly!
It’s not the greatest photo, but you get the idea. I think it was because the light was hitting it from the side that made it look so puckered. It really isn’t!
I had the fat eighth bundle, but I still needed border and backing fabric, so I headed over to Shades of The Past. This little quilt shop, located in Clara City, MN has so many fun, different projects. I really enjoyed wandering around. My favorite fabric in the whole line is the red camper fabric, and I was able to get some of it at the quilt shop.
I also purchased black background fabric for this project:
Oops! I didn’t mean to have my toes on the edge of the photo.
This fabric is Little Black Dress by Basic Grey for Moda. I haven’t sewn these blocks together, because I haven’t decide if I want to alternate the fabrics, or have just one fabric in each block.
In this photo, every block has just one fabric.
My problem is that I like some of the blocks with alternating fabrics, and some of the blocks all one fabric.
Now I’m going to show you the really cool thing about the patterns in this book.
All of the blocks in this book are strip pieced!!!
Did you hear that??? No templates! You just put the strip sets together and cut out the pieces. So easy!
Here’s the giveaway part!!!
I have a book and the “Triangler” ruler to give away. All you have to do is go over to Heather’s blog and look at her quilts, and leave a comment on my blog, not hers, telling me which of the quilts in her book is your favorite. (Feel free to leave a comment on her blog too. It just won’t count as a contest entry!) Her blog posts with all of the quilts in the book are here and here. I can’t wait to see which is your favorite quilt. The contest will remain open until Friday, May 31 at midnight central time.
Oh, and make sure you take a look at Carter, their little boy. He’s just the cutest thing ever. When you wait a long time for a baby like they did, they end up perfect!!!
And now I’m going to go work on my black and white quilt for a while!
