Earlier in the week, I showed you my work in progress on my mini quilt for Katarina Roccella’s new line Wonderland. It’s based on Alice in Wonderland. I love this line, though not my typical fabric choices, as the prints have subtle but great details and the color palette is not too girly but rich. It provides a lot of interest for me.
These are the prints I started out with, but as mentioned I loved these that I went and got all the additional prints too. My mini quilt is my own design (from a QDAD design) and on Monday I shared with you the blocks required for the two columns.
Here is how the mini quilt finished up. The crosses are bright pink and a very pale pink. That pale pink fabric actually has a shimmery silver through it that is so delicious. I finished the quilt with the pale blue Enchanted Leaves Air fabric, highlighting the blue in the focus blocks.
I made a very simple back, again tying in the blue from the focus blocks.
The quilting was a 1″ straight diagonal lines in a combination of a loftier batting (than I usually use), which gave this quilt a great texture.
Design: Designed by me
Fabric: Wonderland, Katerina Roccella, Art Gallery Fabrics (AGF) + White, Pure Elements, AGF
Dimensions: 26″ x 24″
Quilted: With Aurifil 2021 White thread; Straight line diagonal Quilting, spacing 1″.
This mini is going to be one of my niece’s as a Christmas gift, that I hope she will love and hang on the wall.
Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
I was so happy when I got Katarina Roccella’s new line in the mail. As soon as it was released I went out and bought 1/2 yards of the whole line.
I knew immediately I wanted to use one of my Quilt Design a Day patterns, to make something for one of my niece’s for Christmas. Those girls are just so adorable.
I am running a little behind in finishing this mini, for this post, unfortunately. All the pieces have been trimmed and are all ready to be sewn together.
In total, the pieces you will need:
- Sixty-four (64) Half Square Triangles
- Twenty-four (24) 2.5″ Squares (for the plus block)
- Twelve (12) 6.5″ x 2.5″ Rectangles (for the pkus block)
- Six (6) 4.5″ Squares
- Four (4) 4.5″ x 2.5″ Rectangles
This top is made up of three distinct blocks that are replicated with the individual rows.
- The plus block (where the measurements are with seam allowance) in the first column. You will need to make Four (4) of these for each of the Plus Rows. I alternated a dark and light plus in each row. The Half Square Triangles used in each of the corners of the plus blocks, are also 2.5″ and you can use this tutorial to make them the HST.
The Half Square Triangles used in each of the corners of the plus blocks, are also 2.5″ and you can use this tutorial to make them the HST. Take care on the placement of the HST’s when making up the blocks.
- Column 2, uses a Flying Geese Block made from two 2.5″ Half Square Triangles. You will need 8 HST to make 4 flying geese that are used between each of the focus squares (#3).
- A 4.5″ (includes seam allowance) Square – is used in column 2. I recommend fussy cutting and using these blocks as focus blocks. You will need three (3) full squares and two (2) 1/2 squares (4.5 x 2.5″) per column.
There are so many great projects using Katarina’s new line. Take a look. I hope you enjoy the other projects.
