So, last month, I participated in the Perfect 10 Sampler Sew Along from Sew Emma’s “Perfect 10” book. The sampler consisted of one block from each of the 16 quilts. It gives the opportunity to see which block most appeals to you, I think.
After finishing the sampler, I knew that I wanted to do several of these quilts. They are quick and easy and each quilt can be made from one fabric layer cake and 3 1/2 – 6 yards of background fabric.
The Cookie Dough Quilt
This quilt is one of the largest. It finishes at 88 1/2″ square which would work on a queen sized bed.
I like bright colors and “Farmhouse II” is so pretty with bright green, orange, aqua and navy. I want to “use” this quilt and it will get dirty, so I chose Black on Black Cross Weave yardage for the background. I saw a quilt on Pinterest using this background and it really made the bright colors pop. And … it won’t show dirt. It is a little thin, but will end up being really soft in the finished quilt.
I didn’t starch before I cut it out because I needed the entire 10″ on each piece of the layer cake for the pattern. I used my Accuquilt GO! cutter to cut the 4.5″ and 5.5″ background squares and the background rectangles. It wastes a little bit of fabric, but it shortened my cutting time considerably as well as being more accurate.
