Double Delight

Are you tired reading about my double delight progress? In January one of my challenges was to make a quilt at a time, not start and stop. Double delight is the first quilt in that process. I'm glad to say the center is sewn together!


This is a controlled scrappy quilt, the only constant fabrics are the background fabric and the yellow in the rolling stone blocks. I love the way the fabrics look, even the farmer likes it! As of now it measures 90" by 102". I need to trim the edge of the center, I slightly over cut the inset triangles so there would be an edge to trim.

I didn't have a plan when I started piecing the 9 patch blocks, I didn't have a plan so some of the centers aren't blue or yellow. That's ok, that just adds interest to the quilt, same way with the blue fabrics that have other colors in them.

This quilt is going to be for our bed so it needs to be king sized. It's time to start working on borders.

Double Delight is a free Bonnie Hunter pattern which is located at the bottom of the free pattern page
