Moda Love Layer Cake was my starting pattern so I cut 6" finished half square triangles using an Accuquilt die. But, as it sometimes happens - the pattern I thought would work didn't ... being flexible is key if you are like me & don't map out your quilt in detail or with sketches.
The important thing I like to share is this: do what feels right with what fabric you use and the final result will make you happy - evolve your quilt design. I spent many years at an art desk doing old school advertising paste up and there is always a way to make your shapes & colors work.
This lap quilt has a minky back and my usual simple quilting method of a wavy line following the seams - it is fast, effective and makes a nice pattern on the back as well.
I used Aurifil 50wt. Muslin (#2311) which is a wonderful alternative to the ever popular Light Sand (#2000). It glided through all the different fabric weights with a #14 needle - not one thread break or jam up ... love that.
