Broken Panes Quilt Along - Quilt Top

And then there was a finished quilt top.  I've enjoyed sewing along with the Broken Panes Quilt Along hosted by Jen @ Patterns by Jen.  There's still time to join in -- the final link up will be in August.

I made the smallest size, so it didn't take long to sew my four blocks together.

There is sashing between the blocks with an accent cornerstone block.  I didn't take any photos during the process because it went so quickly.  But you can head over to Jen's blog to get some tips on adding the sashing and borders.

You'll see that I was a rebel and didn't add the borders.  I had the border fabric cut, but I liked how it looked without borders.  So I cut the border fabric into the binding strips.  This finishes around 50 inches square.

It's been hard to get photos because we've had so much rain.  When the sun finally came out, it was so windy that it was near impossible to get good photos.

Now to decide on a quilting plan.  Later this month, I'll be sharing a tutorial on how I machine bind my quilts.

You can follow my progress during the QAL:


  1. I like the colours, it looks so bright and happy.

  2. It's very nice Anja. I like the unpredictability in how the fabrics line up. You used fun fabrics as well.

  3. Its so cute! I didn't expect it to be quadrants like that! Great effect
