Chandelier Quilt

IMG_4644
 I know lots of you have been looking forward to this, and I sure have too—today’s the day that my Chandelier Quilt-Along starts on the Bernina blog, We All Sew!
I really love this quilt and am so happy with how it turned out. And I promise it’s easier than it looks. : ) It uses the Emmy Grace fabric line by Bari J., which is a beautiful line that I enjoyed using (and it just happens to be on sale at The Intrepid Thread!). This quilt has a lot of half-square triangles and the square-in-square piecing technique, but I’ve got a few tips to make that easier. And all the instructions are completely free on the Bernina blog!
Here’s the schedule:
Oct. 20 – Making the blocks
Oct. 27 – Assemble the quilt top and quilting
I’ve also got a really fun and easy technique for getting the scallop quilting I used on this quilt—no free-motion required! So follow along over on We All Sew, and have a wonderful Monday!

    Very surprised to find that I really like this(I trend more to the traditional). The colors are nice as are the clean lines AND I love the binding !!!

      Thanks, Patricia! Well, I would say it's more of an intermediate pattern. It's easier than it looks, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's for beginners. HOWEVER! Don't let that scare you off! Doing something like this is exactly how you learn, and how you BECOME intermediate. : ) Don't strive for perfection, just strive for a learning experience, knowing that the next one will be that much better. And if you have any questions, I'm here to help!

      Patricia, I would practice by doing 4 blocks. You get to practice at a challenging level for yourself but don't commit to an entire quilt. Look in your stash of fabric or buy some fat quarters and try it. You can't believe the number of single blocks that I have in a pile. I still try one block before committing to an entire quilt.
