Chain Link Quilt Top for H2H

"Bolder and Older" describes some of the fabrics in this quilt, the last of four made in the Hands2Help Challenge this year.

Bolder prints, including florals and feathers and swirls (oh my!).  Older, as in used a while ago and there's maybe just a smidge left, perfect for the few strips needed.  Or an older fabric that deserves a chance to be useful and appreciated, but in a limited dose (if you know what I mean).

That could mean a lot going on, but the background fabric provides enough space so they all seem to play nicely together, I think.  

Thanks to Meredith for the tutorial a couple weeks ago in a Hands2Help blog post.  When I saw that the quilt was set on point and read through the instructions, I realized I already had the right size setting triangles cut and ready to go!  They were the ones I had unsewn from the String Baskets quilt and replaced with a different fabric.  Serendipity!

From there, it was a no-brainer to cut some 2-1/2 inch strips and make a few of these fun, big blocks.

I actually used up the background fabric before I got to the border, but I found a remnant of off-white, tone-on-tone shooting stars in the stash.  Close enough for rock 'n roll!

I'll be quilting and finishing this in the next few days, and then it will go to Quilty Hugs as part of the H2H Comfort Quilt Challenge.

  1. What a great quilt. Love your scrappy inner border. And your color choices are fabulous. When I watched the tutorial the quilt really appealed to me. And now after seeing your rendition, it is definitely going on "the list".

  2. Having setting triangles already cut! It was meant to be. Fabulous coordination of all those fabrics!

  3. This looks like a great way to use up random bits. The solids and the big expanse of white both help to make all your other fabrics look very intentional and coordinated.


I welcome your comments! Thanks for taking time to leave a note!
