Common Ground Pattern Release

I am a regular pattern tester for Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.  She has great patterns, and I'm not just saying that because we're friends.  😊  Her Common Ground pattern was released today.  Make sure to head over this weekend as the pattern is on sale until Monday.

Earlier this week, Andrea picked up my quilt for a photo shoot.  Now my other quilts are going to be jealous.  LOL  My version includes Essex yarn-dyed cotton/line blends and Kona cotton solids.


I took some time to think about a quilting plan.  Then the pandemic was upon us.  And then in the blink of an eye, two months had passed, and I only had a few days to get it quilted.  So a quick all-over stipple in a cream thread that matched the background fabric.


There are a lot of HRTs in this pattern, but Andrea gives great guidance.  I did a blog post on whether to glue baste or pin the triangles to make the HRTs.


I'm linking up with:

  6. I spent a long time admiring this on Instagram last night Anja! I love it! I’m seriously considering buying the pattern, or at least giving HRTs a go soon! Are you able to tell me what size your quilt finishes at, please?
