Tinsel Waves Quilt Finish


Hi all!  With my mom's help, I just got this scrappy quilt totally finished -- woohoo!  This sucker is mostly made from scraps from the Tinsel Swoon quilt I blogged about a few posts back.


Full disclosure—I did add quite a lot of additional fabric for more HSTs and setting triangles to get it this big. But once I had used up all my Swoon triangle scraps, I liked it enough to keep going and make it bigger - - and bigger it is! The HSTs finish 2" square, and this quilt covers the top of a queen size bed. So,  if you do the math, that comes out to approximately eleventy-billion HSTs to make this quilt.




So, the fabric deets:  
Prints: Tinsel by Cotton + Steel and several Basics by Cotton + Steel
Solids: Kona and Bella Tinsel coordinatesBackground: Crisscross in Gold Metallic from "Remix" by Anne Kelle for Robert Kaufman
Backing: Little Deer in Berry from Garland by Cotton + Steel (a brushed cotton, similar to flannel)




The beautiful quilting (done by Mom!) is an all-over small loop, and is quilted with a cream-colored Glide thread. Glide has a bit of a sheen to it, and I loved how it shimmered on this holiday quilt. With Christmas, I don't think you can have too much shiny, gold stuff - - - which is good, cuz there's a ton of it in this quilt!


There was absolutely no rhyme or reason to how this quilt went together. I made HSTs until I used up all my fabric, and then sewed them into 16-patches until I couldn't make anymore. I laid out many different possible layouts before deciding on this one. It was just sheer luck that I had the blocks to do this without any planning. All said and done, I only had one 16-patch left over! Pretty good for a scrappy project, huh?


Wishing you joyful holidays and happy stitching,

Kelly
