Summer Aria I and II {Quilts}

They are finished!!

It is time to share all the quilts from the Little Ruby Quilt Along by Fat Quarter Shop.
I love them so much!

Summer Aria I

Summer Aria II

I call them my fraternal twin quilts.  
Same fabric. Same pattern. Same, yet so different!

Other than the way the blocks are cut, the only difference is their backings.

And bindings.

The butterflies.  The gorgeous Kate Spain butterflies!!!!
I had a completely different quilt plan, making flowers in the hexagon blocks, but then I came across the Glasswings pantograph by Urban Elementz.

Hard to photograph...but....perfection!

I also made sure I maximized all the extras.  
An orphan block became a Trivet/potholder!

When I was cutting double strips, I eeked out at least one block from each double strip and had enough mismatched blocks to make a Baby Aria Quilt.  Stay tuned for the finish!

The remaining jelly roll strips, along with some solid strips I cut, were relegated to a new quilt, the 6th grade quilt, from Me & My Sisters Designs, Precut Primer Book.  Can't wait to start piecing it!

Not a single scrap of this fabric is being left behind!!!
If you missed the schedule, it is NEVER too late.

See the other gorgoeus quilts by these talented quilt bloggers!
