March CGQC Project

My goal for the CGQC for March was to finish 10 more blocks in the Christmas quilt I am making out of ‘Crazy Eight’ fabric by Sandy Gervais for Moda.  I completed the remaining blocks, added the setting triangles and sewed the blocks together.  As you can see by the pictures below, I haven’t put the borders on yet, but I will make that part of my goals for April. 

I just barely finished getting the quilt top sewn together and gave it a really quick ironing today so I could snap a few pictures.  I will post a finished picture next month with the borders on and the quilt top is ironed so it will look nice.

Here is a close up picture of a few of the blocks…..

This quilt was the fourth quilt I have  made, so I’m still fairly new to quilting.  It was my first attempt at quarter square triangles.  I ended up paper piecing the blocks so that I could get the qst’s to look right.  It’s going to be a while before I tackle another pattern that has qst’s in it!! 

I really love the rich colors in the Crazy Eight fabric.  Sandy Gervais designs such gorgeous fabric!  She just came out with a fun fabric group called ‘Frolic’ and she has another beautiful group coming out in December that is a Valentines group. 

I’ll be back tomorrow with a post for my April CGQC goals.
