The Interlocking Circles (Beachside Bungalow by Kim Brackett) quilt top is finished. I decided that an outer border would be too distracting, so this is it. The quilt top measures 58″ x 69 1/2″.
The quilt was inspired by this batik fabric and a Robert Kaufmann jelly roll.
Does anyone but me get a bit frustrated at quilt yardage requirements that leave you with huge amounts of extra fabric?
This quilt calls for 2 1/2 yards for the background, 7/8 yard for the setting triangles and 5/8 yard for binding – a total of 4 yards. I had 2 yards of the batik, and after deciding on this pattern I ordered another yard – a total of 3 yards. Out of the 3 yards of fabric, I sewed all the blocks, cut all the setting triangles and had enough left over to cut the binding. I rarely buy extra fabric for the binding for this very reason.
This week’s goal is to finish machine quilting and binding a couple small wall hangings.
Linking up with Judy’s Design Wall Monday.
