Cutie Quilt: Irresistible

I am tickled to announce a new Cutie Pattern -- Irresistible!


This quilt was inspired by a spool of thread.  This spool of thread:


It is a simple four-patch quilt that can be made with a Cutie Pack (16 fat 1/8th cuts of fabric).  The pattern includes four sizes and I made the queen sized one.

The quilting on this four-patch quilt really changes the look of the quilt:

Even closer:


Since folks are going to ask, I kept track of how much thread it took to quilt this queen-sized quilt.  Here's the result:


I used about 1 2/3 spools (700m) of FabuLux and 7 DecoBob bobbins.  So now we know!

So many people chimed in with a "This quilt is MINE!" when I was making the sample.  My daughter saw this quilt on my binding chair while she was cat-sitting during my Harry Potter trip.  She sent me a trip that said "For future reference, this quilt is mine."  I had to send her a "Too late!" answer because the quilt already has an owner waiting for it when it finishes its time traveling as a sample.  I will make my daughter a copy of this quilt and she'll get it even sooner!

I can't wait to make this quilt in other fabrics and sizes.  It is so fun to machine quilt and watch the quilt transform from "meh" to "WOW!" before my eyes!
