The other day, while avoiding all those quilts that need quilting, I thought it’d be a good idea to put these little scraps of Maze & Vale fabrics to use. I’ve collected these lovely hand printed fabrics for a long time now, and recently made a large quilt top out of them (I haven’t had a chance to show it here yet – was hoping to get it in a magazine, but no luck!).
Anyway, I had lots of little pieces left over and I’ve had it in my head for a while now that I wanted to see how my converging corners quilt would look made up out of lower volume prints. I love how this pattern looks with bold and bright prints (this one is still a favorite), but I thought it might be interesting to see how it might look if there was only a hint of the pattern (I also thought it might be a disaster – I’m happy that I ended up loving the look!)
This pattern is not necessarily a super quick one – there are lots of seams and piecing together small pieces of fabrics, which can get a bit tedious. Since I only had a small amount of fabrics left, I opted for smaller 8″ blocks to make up this 30″ square wall hanging.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. You can actually see the pattern quite well from afar, but I might like the up close look even more – all those special little hand printed pieces!
