High Tea Quilt Pattern Revealed

Adrianne from On the Windy side has released her new quilt pattern High Tea so now I can show you the quilts I made to test her pattern.  It is a very quick and easy to make pattern that is pre-cut friendly (charms squares, layers cakes and  jelly rolls) but also easy to make using yardage.  I made a ‘boy’ version using green and gold sashing in support of our Edmonton Eskimos.  I used charm squares and a few layer cakes for the 4-patches and yardage for the sashing.   I followed her pattern exactly on this one:


For the girl’s version I used yardage rather than pre-cuts.   I left every other centre block plain so that I could do some free motion quilting and I changed the sashing around the centre blocks so that the neutral sashing acts as a frame for the bright/busy 4-patch and the coloured sashing forms a frame around the FMQ.


 When these quilts are finished, I am going to donate them to the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch.  Each child is given a quilt when they arrive at camp and when they leave they get to take it home with them.

Adrianne’s pattern is officially available for purchase starting today and for 48 hours it will be half off at her Etsy shop and on Craftsy.  You can see mine and all the other pattern testers’ quilt tops on Adrianne’s website.
