A Chevron Angle Quilt Top : :

Observer Quilt 2

I'm so excited to share my second Observer fabrics quilt top today! I had previously blogged that I was planning another Diamond Weave quilt with the large HSTs I had leftover from making my first Observer quilt top, Diamond Trails. The make eight at a time half square triangle method yielded a hefty stack of extras that I couldn't let go to waist!

To help me calculate just how much and of which prints I would need to turn these HSTs into a new Diamond Weave I started to make a quick mockup of the pattern. As I was playing I stumbled upon a new design idea that I loved just as much, but all that was needed were just 8" square patches to pair with the already made HSTs. Easy & fast!

Here you can see both the grid I made of the fabric placement layout and the digital quilt pattern.

Following the diagram, I cut my squares and sewed my quilt top together in just a couple of hours and I love how it turned out!

These prints blend together so seamlessly you can barely see the quilt block seams!

Both of the Observer quilt tops I made measure 62" x 74." Here's a reminder of the first one incase you missed it!

Now I've successfully utilized every last 8" HST I initially made, using the last four in a pillow I hope to finish this afternoon to share next week, hooray!

    1. Thanks! I used 18" squares to make all the HSTs needed for both quilts.

  6. I might make time to finally try your 8 at a time method this weekend... Or maybe finally finish my quick QAYG pillows... We'll see. :)

  7. It looks as though you made the square specifically for the quilt. What a great use. Beautiful

  8. Absolutely stunning! I love the pattern and fabric choices!
