March quilt of the month

Posted on

Every month I hang up a new quilt from our stash. There’s a divider between the shop and the rest of the house, so the quilt goes on that divider.

This month, I chose a blue and yellow quilt to remember the Ukraine, and my friend who lives in Kyiv.

I used the Delight quilt pattern from Jaybird Quilts. While I don’t have the pattern in stock, I do have the Hex n More ruler. There’s NO Y seams or partial seams in this quilt, and it is constructed very cleverly.

When I made this quilt ages ago, I went through my stash and pulled any and all of the med to dark blues I had and cut as many pieces as I could. For the yellows I did the same thing. I made sure to alternate the yellow triangles with some solid or near solid so there was more of a pattern where they met.

The top sat around unquilted for a while, and when we got our longarm I suggested Ron have a go at quilting it. He did freehand hexagonal spirals.

More than awareness or good thoughts, the Ukraine needs money. Consider donating to UNICEF.
