Up From Here

Happy Monday!

Earlier this summer I joined a quilt along hosted by Roseanne & Sue with Home Sewn By Us.  No rules, no deadline and best of all 3 quilts to choose from!

I chose to do the quilt Up From Here first – the name itself is so positive and motivating! The tutorial/pattern can be found here.

The block in the pattern finishes at a whopping 24 inches! I was excited because I love big blocks. I needed a new Halloween quilt and didn’t want want to buy any fabric so I adjusted the pattern to make a 18 inch block.

My Halloween version of Up From Here measures 54 x 54 inches.

Looks great on our recliner and matches a pillow I made several years ago.

Until next time Happy Sewing!
