TGIFF - Indian Blanket

I am really excited to share this finish with all of you.

I took an online class from Rachel Hauser from Stitched In Color. The class was called Angled. Although I had sewn triangles and diamonds before taking this class, Rachel taught us so many things. The biggest lessons I learned are how to to cut these shapes with my regular ruler. There were 5 different quilts we could make and Indian Blanket was the first one.


I had so much fun making this quilt! I picked all of the fabrics except the backing from my stash. I started with Jeni Baker's line Nordika as my inspiration, and picked the rest of the fabrics from there.

It was lots of fun, seeing the rows come together. Once it was pieced, I got even more excited because it was a great opportunity for me to practice some FMQ.

And now that it's done, it is one of my favourite quilts I made this year.

So here it is, my Indian Blanket:

I apologize for the poor quality of photos but I was alone to take them and I used my iPad to do so. I was just too excited to share!

I haven't attached the label yet but it is ready to sew on this evening.

I am linking up to TGIFF over at Quilt Matters.
