Design Wall Monday 10-08-18

While shopping at a local quilt shop, this fabric jumped in my cart and insisted in coming home with me.

I decided to Stack-n-Whack squares and then set them in the BQ pattern by Maple Island.  It took a little bit of figuring to determine the square size in order to make the most efficient use of the fabric, but the cutting & sewing of the 4-patches was quick and easy.

The blocks are 9 1/2″ unfinished, so then it was back to paper and pencil to resize the BQ block which turned out to not be difficult.  The next step was the background fabric.

I decided on a light green background color with a solid black frame.  This involved a trip to the quilt shop to find the right fabric, but soon BQ blocks (14″ unfinished) were popping up on the design wall.

And by lunch time on Sunday all 16 blocks were completed and the quilt top sewn together.

The top measures 54″ square and there is no plan to put borders on it.  This is one of the fastest quilt tops I have made from fabric bought to finished quilt top.  Next up will be 2 more SBS blocks to celebrate another finish.

    Perfect fabric for a stacked repeat (that’s the generic term for SnW). I have found it very easy to modify the measurements in the original BQ to accommodate whatever size block I want to incorporate.
