April OMG

Hi Everyone,

April OMG

I’ve been working on my stained glass quilt for a while.  This month I intend on finishing it.  My son has expressed a liking so it will be gifted to him.

I found the pattern in a Fons and Porter Magazine.  The colors just blew me away.  Fabric and Pattern

I thought the pattern would be more difficult than it was.  It clearly indicated how many and size strips I needed to cut from these lovely ombre fabrics.  The blocks came together quite easily.

Stained Glass Blocks

I sewed the quilt top together and was very pleased with the results.


I used remnants for the backing to show off the fabric in its full ombre glory.

Quilt Back

I’ve been quilting this using my walking foot.  A different design in each block.  It has been a long process of turning the quilt in each direction.  I’ve put it on hold for a while during the holiday and to give my shoulders a rest.
