Day at the ParkOur Paisley Park Preview was happily interrupted by the Moda Love Blog Tour. I hope you all had a chance to visit the other designers' blogs to learn more about their fabric collections and what they all love about quilting. I enjoy discovering a few little secrets about these talented women I see only twice a year at market. So fun!
Now, for the final project from our Paisley Park collection - our Day at the Park charm quilt. For each KT fabric line, I challenge myself to create a simple quilt using just one charm pack plus a couple extra fabrics for a fast & easy project. Whether a wall quilt, table runner or pair of pillows, my charm-ing inspirations provide lots of options for your home decor or gift giving throughout the year. For example, Day at the Park requires a charm pack, mini charm pack plus 2 fabrics for borders - kit price, including pattern, is only $29.88!
The Day at the Park quilt was inspired by a brick path in our favorite park that meanders past flower gardens, fountains and bird baths to a bench hidden under a blooming trellis. A lovely spot for an impromptu picnic lunch. Love it! I could see the brick work as charm squares and took a picture to remind me of it's pattern. Look around you - inspiration is everywhere!
By starting with 2 precuts, your project is half done. Piece traditiional half square triangle blocks from assorted charm squares. Cut a mini charm into fourths, then layer two of those squares on opposite corners of bias squares and stitch. So easy!
Play with the blocks as you're laying them out - there are several ways to create even more designs!
Comment here about your favorite spot for a relaxing lunch (or dinner or snack) to win a Paisley Park charm pack and our Day at the Park pattern. See you next Monday!
