I finished this quilt a few weeks ago, but finally delivered it to my new niece so I can finally go in depth with it here. 🙂
I found the Astrodelic Quilt on a great website of Fat Quarter Shop. They have a ton of free patterns and really cute fabrics. I chose this quilt because it looks really stunning and actually is very simple. The angle cuts are made with the same method of making binding so this is a true beginner quilt. Due to the large pieces it was also easy to line up and piece together. I kept this incredibly simple with just a cross ‘x’ quilt. I looked at other people’s quilting choices online and decided I wanted my fabric and clean lines to show more than the quilting so I literally did the bare minimum. If I did it again, I would probably hand quilt or machine quilt the seams. Overall, it took 2 hours to iron/cut, 3 hours to piece/sew, and 3 hours to bind. So a wonderful weekend quilt. Here are my pics!
Feel free to ask question in the comments – I would also love to do a small class or tutorial of this online/in person if people are interested!
