I’m gearing up to release the Rinse and Repeat pattern next week and decided that it would be fun to make another version. I’ve been wanting to make something from Kim Kight’s line Welsummer for Cotton and Steel since the moment I saw it and I knew that this design would be a great fit for these fun, colorful prints.
I added some solids and other basics to the mix and started playing. The pattern is made up of five different blocks, each with six fabrics. I make piles of six fabrics and move things around until I like what I see. Then I cut and sew. Rinse and Repeat. (Get it? *wink*).
The pattern has four different sizes: baby, throw, twin and full/queen. I am going to make a throw or a twin sized quilt – both use 14 blocks. I like to check in after sewing about 2/3 or 3/4 of the blocks to see if I need to add more of one color or take something away. Once I had these up on my design wall, I knew immediately what it needed. MORE PINK!
I’ve got the last five blocks cut and waiting for me up in the studio. I am hoping I can squeeze in some sewing time and get them completed. Then it’s a matter of choosing a background fabric. I have a few options in mind, but want to see all the colors together before deciding.
Back with the finished quilt top soon! And the pattern soon after that! Just a reminder that I will be sending out a coupon code to my newsletter subscribers. Not on the list? You can easily sign up in the blue bar at the top of this page.
