The Sugar Quilt Pattern is a FREE Then Came June pattern! It includes six sizes - baby to King! You can use your stash, your favorite precuts or large scraps!
I shared about the first Sugar Quilt we made using Petunia fabric here. I decided to make another fun Sugar quilt based on a Firecracker! I dove into my stash and used reds and blues for one set of fabric (14 FQs) and then a mix of low volume whites for the background fabric.
Here is the mock up we used to base our idea on:
We made the Large Throw size that finishes at 63" x 72". In the pattern I say exactly how many squares you need. So we used (56) low volume background fabric squares and then (56) fabric squares in a mix of reds and blues.
I randomly paired one white background square to one from the left stack - the reds, pinks, blues. And then I worked block by block. I really enjoyed building this quilt and adding more blocks to the design wall.
We many HSTs to trim! But I love the trimming pile photo. Then it was time to sew it all together! This pattern has you press your seams open in the individual blocks and then you press seams opposite directions once in a complete row. This allows you to next the seams row by row which I think helps keep the points accurate.
Before I sent this off for quilting, we headed to Hawaii last summer. I brought this top along with me and snapped some photos during a gorgeous sunset one evening on Maui. It was a tad windy.
