May 2020 OMG

My May 2020 One Monthly Goal is to make a bright and happy quilt top that will become a quilt for my bed which I hope to have finished in time for me to enjoy this summer. It will definitely be a comfort quilt as 2020 has been an exceedingly challenging year thus far for us all, and it will feature some of my very favorite fabrics including the background fabric which is Avant Garde Bauhaus Dissection by Katarina Roccella and some gorgeous saturated prints by Alison Glass and Guicy Guice, along with many other bright prints in my stash. I first saw the Blithe quilt in this blog post by M-R Charbonneau@Quilt Matters. I had some Bauhaus Dissection fabric in my stash but not nearly enough to use as the background fabric for a quilt, but last October I was thrilled to find six yards at  Lark Cottons, and I will definitely use a lot of this wonderful low volume fabric in my version of the Blithe Quilt. I’m planning to make the quilt wider, so it fits on my full-size bed. I think the final dimensions will be about 72.5 x 72.5. Below are 8 half-square triangles that will be used in this quilt:

  1. Looking forward to seeing this quilt’s progress. I need to make a quilt for our bed too, but haven’t settled on a design yet.


  2. Looking forward to your quilt — I love Katarina Roccella and Alison Glass fabrics! At some point I would like to make a quilt for our bed also!


  3. I’m so glad you are planning a quilt for yourself. I look forward to seeing it come together!

    Hi Mary! The peek at those eight HSTs are really fun. I really love that tone-on-tone look on the teal and darker pink. And the low volume print is divine – rather architectural-ish looking with a sweet little butterfly floating about. LOVE it. I can’t wait to see how it finishes and what other colors you are going to introduce. ~smile~ Roseanne
