Twist with the 60s and Batiks Blog Hop - Day 1
|Sugarloaf Jewels quilt, my first batik quilt using my Magic Stax technique|
The Sugarloaf Jewels quilt was made about 10 years ago, right after I discovered the beauty of batiks. I swapped 10-1/2" squares with my guild and had a pile of 24 squares that wanted to become a quilt. It is a class I've taught for years and believe it or not, we do NOT use templates. We draw a few lines on freezer paper then stack squares and cut, shuffle and then resew these back together into uniform blocks.
Sugar Loaf is a pattern I sell at my Craftsy site. (8-1/4" blocks; 53" x 62" quilt)
No templates, no bias edges. Start with 6 squares, make 5 cuts, end with 6 blocks
