Spring into Summer

January 23 had me finishing another pattern test for The Quilt Pattern Magazine. This pattern will be published in the May issue.

This pattern is Trinkets written by Nan Baker and finishes at 54 1/2” x 78 1/2”.

Palette of fabrics pulled and ready to cut

The cutting was done with great instructions to follow.

I love my collection of weights! Good for my exercises to strengthen my shoulder after surgery and perfect to hold my rulers so they don’t slip while cutting my fabric!

Then piecing commenced; strip piecing is possible when you are making 24 blocks.

There was a bit of trimming involved to ensure perfect blocks were made.

Then the blocks were assembled and rows put together. The rows assembled in to a top. With the additions of borders it was done and ready for a final press to wait for the snow to stop in order to take pictures.

That never happened so my kitchen floor became the backdrop!

Spring Into Summer is done. The colours reminded me of the flower beds growing from shoots to full flower!

This pattern can be found at The Quilt Pattern Magazine. It is well written with precise and easy to follow instructions for cutting, piecing and pressing. I always enjoy doing Nan Baker’s patterns.

This quilt is now sandwiched and ready to be quilted. Hopefully it will be a finish this month. If not for sure in May when it is published.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Stay home and stay safe! 😷 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! These fabrics really do announce Spring into Summer. I can close my eyes and happily think of several flowers in these hues. Nice job! ~smile~ Roseanne
