Fusion Star!

We got some new bookcases (literally absolutely the last ones that will fit in our house) and it created a little space where I could hang something.  So I made a wee quilt.  Of course. <Insert husband eye roll>

For being only 24″ it took me almost a whole day.  It is a fantastic paper-piecing (FREE!) pattern from Sew What, Sherlock.  Lots of time, lots of mess and paper… but the precision is so worth it.  This is not something I could do with just plain ‘ol piecing.  The colors were pulled from the rug in the living room (uninspiring, but my rug IS lovely). I bound it in the only red I had that matched the color in the carpet – a 20+ year old Moda print. I am SO LUCKY the color didn’t run when I washed it!  I did my favorite type of quilting – intersecting diagonal and straing lines.

Love it, love the pattern, love the colors, love how it looks above our bookshelves.

  1. Beautifully done! I just recently tried PPing for flying geese – LOVE the accuracy! Still trying to figure out what I was so afraid of! 🙂
