Herringbone Quilt


My most recent quilt finish is this herringbone quilt. This is one that was started over a year ago and just finally finished.

I completed this herringbone quilt after following a class on Craftsy by Maureen Cracknell. Her version had the herringbone panels all the way across, but I was using a jelly roll and only had enough strips to make four herringbone panels so I opted to add white panels on either side. I love a white background so this design suits me to a T!


I had this little photography assistant helping with the photos. She also approves of the quilt!

In looking at the quilt in the photo I can see that it having been folded has left a crease - so another wash is in it's future.  The colors are primarily red and dark navy so I selected a dark navy binding and I like how that looks with the white.

I can recommend Maureen's Craftsy class, so head over there if you want to check it out.  It is a quilt as you go method and is pretty much fun to sew.  The class contains a variety of projects so you can try out the method on a smaller project before you commit to a quilt if you like.

Thanks for visiting and for your comments.  I would love to see what you have been working on.
