Design Wall Monday - Tilt

Today I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

I have been thinking about what to make with my FQ bundle of Oliva's Holiday by Tina Givens.  The patterns are quite bold and not my normal palette.  While walking in the library, I picked up Kaffe Fassett's "Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts" and decided to make Tilt. 

I separated the FQ bundle and removed the aquas and green prints for the quilt.  I then went to Jo-Ann's where solid fabrics were not on sale, so I was able to use a stack of coupons for 10 solid fabrics.

The blocks are all cut and the middle block is completed.  Here is a snippet:

The photo may not show it, but I think I did a good job with the triangles.  I would love to find a tutorial that demonstrates how to get those triangles right.  I seem to struggle with that.

Now there is nothing left to sew but the rectangles, so I think the top will go together quick.


  1. That's cute. I can't wait to see the whole quilt.

  2. Thats neat - I like the tilt...

  3. I have that book too - just went to have a look at the pattern. I have lots of nice fabric that would look good in that pattern too. Your quilt is going to look really nice
