Today’s post is from Colleen of The Busy Bean. Besides having a cute accessories shop, Colleen also has all of her finished quilts up on her blog as well as some fun tutorials. Check it out!!
I chose to make the Shattered Glass quilt from Tula’s book. I really liked the semi-scrappy, sort of ordered look to it. I know, scrappy but ordered? Yes indeed.
The first thing I will say is that her fabric measurements were spot on. Sometimes pattern writers go crazy overboard with fabric… so you go out and buy it and are really mad at the end when you have all sorts of extra fabric. Not this quilt. The only thing I bought was the background fabric, I worked with my scrap bins for the rest. But I didn’t end up with yards of extra background fabric, and I appreciate that.
