Cleaning out my quilt room to herald the new year, I found my beloved blue and white Aurifil BOM 2015 blocks. These were 12 mini quilts I fashioned into a 75″ x 75″ quilt for my nephew and his wife (also a blue lover). I was captivated by the digitally printed fabrics from Hawthorne threads – Bengal and Etched, as they provided so many possibilities for fussy cutting within the blocks.
I really cannot choose a favourite but I do have a soft spot for churn dashes and the baskets are very cute.
Sashed with fussy cut strips from the two collections (The tiger’s eyes follow you around the room). Quilted with Aurifil #40 wt white thread. Backed with Moda Bella 9900-19 royal blue.

Now onto another WIP …. what’s on your cutting table today?
