Bittersweet Blog Hop

Sue Daley has a new range of fabric available called 'Bittersweet'. She has invited designers to create a project from this range and has organised a blog tour to show off everyone's ideas. Hettie's Patch is always up for a challenge and so we have created a quilt that includes paper piecing and applique. We love the luminescence of the florals and geometrics of this range and we have paired this with the Riley Blake basics and some thin stripes from the Bittersweet range to create a harmonious single bed quilt. Each block consists of a plain or thin stripe background with a starburst made from  a hexagon and double kites. The joins are then overlaid with a dark six pointed star. The finished quilt size is 50" x 78" and we will have a free pattern available soon on our website (we just have to write it up).
