Floral Universe and Soulful Strings : :

Floral Universe QAYG

Floral Universe and Soulful Strings

One of my recent Soulful zipper pouches inspired me to begin this new Quick Quilt As You Go project and I am loving it!

Herringbone Pouches

Over the Summer I spotted a similar traditionally pieced block to this one, likely on Instagram, and I put it away in my quilty brain for future quilt as you go use. If you happen to recognize this block pattern, please do share so I can update my post. I'm certain I saw something similar, somewhere.

While you can transform any quilt block into quilt as you go by simply quilting the finished block to a square of batting, I particularly love block patterns like this one that are perfect for the Quick Quilt As You Go method that I teach in my Craftsy class! With this method you sew your fabric strips and patches through the batting itself, creating the string patchwork and quilting it to the batting all in one step, with the quilting lines hidden on the reverse side of the cotton batting. Easy, fast and so much fun!

For my qayg blocks I'm featuring the Floral Universe Plum print from my Soulful collection with Art Gallery Fabrics with 1-2" strings cut from all twenty Soulful quilting cottons.

I love the combination of having a feature print paired with the super scrappy patchwork that I love so much! I'm not yet sure how I'll arrange my blocks, there are several great options, and I'm still undecided on if I'll use them for a new Fall table runner or if I'll have the time for a quilt. Once I finished the first four blocks, I particularly love the way they look set in this arrangement with the feature fabric on the outside. Just eight more blocks and I'll have a pretty great table runner! What do you think?

Such a fun QAYG!

I'm excited to read your thoughts on this new project! In the meantime, I'm going to keep adding to my stack of blocks. Maybe I'll have enough for a runner and a quilt!

    1. Me too! They still have that herringbone look that I love and you're all probably sick of me sharing so often, Haha! But are unique enough to feel new and interesting. I'm excited to see more of them together!

    1. Thanks! No tutorial for this one. I was hoping to see if someone recognized the block from somewhere because I know I saw something similar a few months back. However, it was not made using quilt as you go. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing another lovely project. Is there a pattern for this particular block? I purchased your Craftsy class but I checked and none of the patterns look exactly like this particular one.

  5. I like your idea of including the solid triangle with the strings, and that touch of peachy color really sets off the plum. Can't wait to see the whole quilt!

  7. Very pretty. I like your arrangement. The blocks are cleanly trimmed ....not seeing any batting around the edge. How are they attached to form the large block?
