Ukraine 21 - Nina's Winter Circles

Um diesen Text auf deutsch zu lesen, klicke bitte auf das DE oben auf der Seite.

This Ukraine-quilt is done with scraps but no known pattern. I just combined a TriRec-star with a Shoo-Fly-Block. The TriRec-star gets a 4-patch as a bonus.

I used EQ7 to play with the colour-combinations, I liked this one best:

But I didn't have enough yellow - ok, let's switch to red.

This quilt has two different blocks. Block A (Shoo Fly) is very easy:

The second block has more pieces! 4-patches, Tri-Rec-triangles and big squares in the middle. It took some time to construct the B-blocks. I made them as a leader-ender-project during the Dear-Janes-blocks (actual I am at row E).

The top is done:

the finished quilt!
Since I created the pattern myself in EQ7 I can name it: it's called Nina's Winter-Circles.

The back is made of scraps:

    I found your blog by clicking from crazy mom quilts.
    I love this one! Both design and colors. I am a beginner quilter, and I think it will be quite some time before I can work on anything as complex as your block B, but I think I will keep it in mind for the future.

    On the picture, I cannot see if it is quilted?

    Thank you, Marie! We all started quilting one day and if you look at my very first quilts in 2014... I could not imagine sewing seams that actually meet, LOL!
    This one here is quilted. But the gifted blanket was too thick to freemotion-quilt it. I just straightline-quilted it in the ditch. You can see the pattern on the back on the yellow fabric. These big squares on yellow are the quilting lines.
