I absolutely love the idea to make a special blue-white quilt to celebrate our independency and the thought has been in my mind... well... since january. Quite to my shock the months of september and october flew by on my calender. And no Finland-quilt was yet under my maschine.
And with all my other obligations and other half-finished quilts it became also clear, that I am not up to a full sized quilt, because I wanted it to be ready for 6.12. Therefore I decided a pillow case will do, we don't have many of those anyway, and I can surely do a pillow case in one month!
|Blue and white fabrics|
From there I calculated the size I need for each square, and decided for 1 inch squares including seam allowances, that means 1/2 inch finished size.
|Cutting one inch strips|
|Sewing strip sets|
|Several strips sewn and pressed|
I imagined the pattern into nine units guided by the three big framed blue squares in the corners. From there, I assembled the top line by line.
|The top is ready|
I am quite happe how it turned out and it the pillow is currently decorating our sofa in the living room.
If you haven'f figured it out yet, the code says "Suomi 100", so this really IS my Suomi 100 quilt.
Have you done any crafts for this special year?
