The Sashed Whales top has been assembled. As I mentioned when I started this one, it’s a remake of a quilt I made the first year I was quilting and I recently “rediscovered” some of my old quilt photos and decided to remake this one for our July Precut Challenge. I will be adding this to the website eventually but here are a few notes to get you started if you want to make your own version.
> Quilt size is approximately 46.5 x 60.5
> Focus fabric squares are cut 10 inches and they’ll finish at 9.5 inches
> Strips for the sashing and nine patches are cut 2 inches.
Stephanie has pulled “orphans or spare parts” for our August precut and for me that means I’ll work on a doll quilt or two from the leftover bits of other quilts as Stephanie commented below!
Our target for August is Orphans or any other spare parts like part blocks, strip set ends, random HSTs, leader/ender pieces, swaps, embroideries, and various other sewn together bits and pieces.
Mary often makes her ends into a doll quilt (great idea!), and I did some pet crate quilts a while ago from some of mine.
This time I might gather together some that go together nicely color-wise and make a random rows Strippie.
If you have a shining halo with no spare parts in your stash, you can choose your own adventure for August.
Whale quilt looking good. Thanks for the measurments, makes a nice sized quilt. I will be interested in the quilt motif you use too
