One Step at a Time

Quilt #89
One Step at a Time

I made this quilt while teaching my first Mystery Class, in 1995 when mystery classes were very popular.
Sawtooth Star and Square-in-a-Square Blocks

I used two traditional blocks, Sawtooth Star and Square-in-a-Square and added four borders, with the second one being a sawtooth made up of half-square triangles.

borders, binding and quilting

Only four fabrics were used for this quilt, I very seldom make quilts using so few fabrics.

One of the fabric was a Jinny Beyer print and I was very disappointed to see it really faded when the other fabrics did not.

For the back, I stitched 5 panels of the 2 pink fabrics that was used on the front. 

 The long arm quilting pattern used here is called Tassels and was quilted by Marnie Mascioli of Calico Cat Quilting.

This quilt was a long time getting finished and longer still getting quilted and the reason why I name it One Step at a Time.

That's all for now.

I like this quilt and the colors you used. I'm sorry the fabric faded a bit. I especially like 2 block quilt patterns. They usually are easy to construct yet look complicated. I am still impressed with the documentation you do on each finished quilt. I plan to start this on my next quilt and may go back and see if I can remember most of the info on older ones. thanks for sharing.
