Petal Junction Bonus Project


Kim made our Highway 10 Designs Petal Junction quilt a year ago, link to original post here, and in our pattern we give instructions for sewing a double line on the diagonal seams resulting in two sizes of bonus HST blocks. We like to avoid fabric waste were possible in our patterns.  This is Kim's bonus project using those HSTs and the extra 4 1/2" strip leftover when using the half yard cuts.   She made two sets of the Sawtooth Star block using the smaller HSTs and if the Grandmothers Choice block using the larger HSTs.  She alternated the two blocks with no sashing, adding an inner border and outer piano key border.

Kim used Sprout Wovens for her quilt and backed this one with a navy Fireside.

I quilted it with the Arrowful pantograph, used grey So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

Here is another shot of the amazing texture of linen and Fireside!

We finally had some snow this week!  Its been a very odd winter with very little or no snow on the ground.  Its been very cloudy and windy so not ideal for outdoor quilt photos.
