Once upon a time, the Lady of the Lake emerged from the waters of Avalon to bestow a magical sword on young King Arthur. Arthur took that sword to war and…was mortally wounded. What a shame! What if she had given him a fancy new sewing machine instead? Just imagine the quilts he could have made!
The Lady of the Lake quilt pattern is an old-fashioned favorite made entirely of half-square triangles. Jenny used layer cakes in bright white and “Horizon,” the 2021 Kona Color of the Year to create a two-color quilt that is lovely as a fairytale! Click HERE to watch the tutorial!
So yes, its been snowing, and its really cold! I don’t know about all of you but about this time of year I start to miss the sunshine 🙂 So, I thought, what could I do to brighten up my day? Well sewing something usually helps and sewing something bright is even better!
I took one charm pack and cut each 5″ square into a 2.5″ rectangle.
Then I took my dresden ruler and cut twenty of them into dresden plate triangles.
I assembled the Dresden plate and machine appliqued it onto a black background (15.5″ square). I also machine appliqued the black center circle.
Then I took the remaining rectangles from the charm pack and made a piano key border for the dresden. It measures approx. 25 inches square.
I still need to decide how to quilt it. and what color thread to use! (the really tough choices:) I absolutely love this little mini quilt! It is so bright and cheerful! and so easy peasy… This is a perfect project for a dreary winter afternoon! Enjoy!
