I should probably share these quilts in the order they were made...but instead I'm sharing my favorite first! Cascade is a twist on a diamond quilt pattern but made with triangles.
The pattern calls for a 60 degree triangle ruler and fat quarters, and comes in two sizes, a crib with smaller blocks, and the throw with larger blocks. I called this an intermediate level pattern because the units have to be lined up just so and you have to make sure to use a perfect ¼" seam allowances. Other than that it goes together smoothly and I included pictures in the pattern to make it easy. This is a great one for chain piecing!
Kathy quilted this one for me (above). Isn't it beautiful?! She does all her quilting free hand and I'm always amazed she can stay so steady and precise!
The crib size below was obviously quilted by me LOL. Not as pretty or precise but it does the job! The purples and blues are my favorite combo in this fabric.
It's pouring buckets here...and I just finished sewing 28 blocks without bobbin thread before I realized it. Hate it when that happens! I'm making my second Shortcake quilt out of Hello Jane...luckily it goes together fast because usually making two of the same quilt is torture! ;)
