Shine Bright: Preview Part II

Time to show you the next stage of the pattern that I hope to put on sale in the Autumn as part of a new series of fat quarter friendly patterns I’m coining Quilt Workout, which are designed for intermediate quilters to practise their skills in different areas of patchwork to build up to the finished design. This quilt is the standard piecing, paper piecing and Y seams workout, I am doing one that involves curves and appliqué too but I’m a way off starting to test that one yet. I also plan to cover inset circles and partial seams in the future

The centre block was some simple piecing I showed you about a week ago or so. The next step is four diamond shaped paper pieced blocks…

The next reveal will show you what goes between these blocks, thankfully it’s standard piecing again! I’m not convinced that paper piecing is entirely my bag. However, I will need to crack out those Y Seams to make it one continuous piece…

    Great dizzying effect – love to see what goes in between them!

    I love the name Quilt Workout, and love that you are doing patterns for those of us who won’t be sewing rectangles together and calling it done (can you tell I’m looking at the QuiltCon classes and thinking they are all about my level 20 years ago?) I also love love what you are doing with this pattern–just read the later post, too. Very cool, Kerry!
