CONVERGING CORNERS QUILT

Remember this quilt?  It resulted in having lots of leftovers that I figured would be perfect for the Converging Corners quilt first seen over at Film in the Fridge a couple years back.



excuse the greyed out picture


These blocks are easy to piece, but do take a bit more time than a typical block



Worth the time I'd say. It's fun to watch the pattern come together when the corners "converge".




I'm wondering what kind of straight line quilting I can treat this to, so will have to search for inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Enjoy your weekend  : )

Wow, that's beautiful...I love how the lines look outside with the light shining through.

Just out of curiosity, do you plan to use this quilt or hang it? I'm wondering how safe it is to make quilts that have a lot of light colors...if they're going to be for use...just thought I'd pick your brain. =)

I love this pattern! It's so pretty and looks like a fairly easy one that I could play with. Now I'm curious what a bright palette would look like!

Oh it looks great Carla - and yes, I loved seeing the corners converge - that was the best bit!

I said I liked this one, but I really do! I included it in today's Sunday Quilt Inspiration post. Hope that's okay. All modern quilts and this one is just too pretty not to include!

Looks fabulous Carla, and certainly not a "leftovers" quilt!

Chase said...

The quilt looks so soft! It reminded me of soft spring time~ I love all the light and dark contrast in the quilt.. :) Another great way for using scraps~ xc

What a fabulous take on the standard log cabin block!
