Cascades Quilt Top Finished

I had planned to have this quilt top finished last weekend, however that just didn’t happen.  The border fabric that I had purchased just did not play well, so it was back to the quilt shop I went on Sunday.  Monday and Tuesday were spent playing with grandkids, but I was able to attach the borders yesterday.

061115  (914x1024)The directions were easy to follow, however there is a mistake in the cutting instructions.  It says to cut a 12 3/4″ square for the setting triangles when it should be a 14″ square.  It made for an interesting design decision since the fat quarters that I used were several years old.  I decided to add strips to the long side of the triangles to bring them up to size.

061115A  (914x1024)This quilt will look great on my bed once I get it quilted, but now it is on to the next project.  I pulled out a bin with all the leftover fabric from the Bowtie quilt – time to play.

    That’s such an interesting pattern. Your solution for the setting triangles is spot on! Lovely job.
