WIP Wednesday - Delight

And so the fascination with patterns by Jaybird Quilts continues...here is Delight.  No Kona solids today, but rather two fat quarter collections from the Bargain Lover's Club by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.


The patterns often look difficult, until you look inside and see how the pieces are sewn together.  The Hex N More ruler is an awesome tool, and I also use it for non-Jaybird patterns.  You'll see that the low volume hexagon is actually six triangles made from two different fabrics.  But the triangles are sewn to the print hexagons.  The top is then pieced in columns -- no Y seams!



I'm unsure how to quilt this, but I think maybe I'll try loop FMQ.

I encourage you to visit the following link ups so you can see what others have been creating this week:

  2. Beautiful quilt, Anja! Thanks for showing the close-up. You are absolutely correct, without the detail, the quilt looks far more difficult to sew together. I'm inspired.

    Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!

  3. I like how this method allows you to keep the prints intact to show them off! Lovely. I think a loop pattern for the quilting would be fast and fun.

  4. I love to try piecing hexagons by machine one day. This looks like a great pattern to start. Thanks.

  5. Hexie goodness made easier, I like it! I was sitting here looking at the picture trying to figure out how you put them together; I think I got it after reading your explanation, such a good idea to avoid Y-seams!

  7. Yep, gotta love hexies. Love the uneven end, too. My grandmother used to do a lot of pieces like that. I know it was by choice because her skills were amazing. She often used a knife edge finish too - a lot of work but beautiful.

  8. Wonderful quilt top. Looked like solids until you got closer in. Those low volume hexies are great, love the pin wheel effect.

  10. Really like this for showcasing some nice prints - looks great and I think loopy quilting will be really nice against the pointy hexagons!
