I went on a Christmas-fabric buying bender at the end of 2018 and am still
working my way through the resulting yardage. Those purchases included the pile of
half-yards pictured above, from Kate and Birdie’s Return to Winter’s
Lane collection. I adore Christmas palettes that include not-so-Christmassy colors like that pale blue.
I’ve cut up those lovelies to create Camille Roskelley’s Norway quilt pattern. This pattern is right up my alley—chunky and graphic with big blocks that measure in at 26 inches square ...
All that lone block needs is eight friends to create a generously sized throw quilt. How generously sized? Well, the resulting quilt top will be so large that I am having problems finding a good spot to lay out the blocks, let alone take a picture of the group! More specifically, the finished quilt will be 78 inches square; the basted quilt sandwich will be more like 86 inches square.
My initial plan was to quilt this project myself, with an all-over crosshatch, on my machine at home. I could quilt from the center outward to minimize the amount of fabric and batting I pass under the needle (I’m not opposed to burying the threads that approach will necessitate). But please, someone, talk me out of it! Surely, this project is better left to a longarmer.
