2018 Giving Quits- Tic Tac Tigerlily and ScatterLilies

Having a co-chair like Debbie meant we were going to have to use one of the colors of the year in a quilt! Every year Debbie makes a quilt using the Kona and Pantone colors of the year! For these we went with Kona’s Tigerlily fabric.

For the March quilt, we decided to skip improv and go with something a little more structured. A Log Cabin. But it’s not just a simple log cabin. We did add a twist!

We started with a red square for the center. Instead of each side being made of one strip, two sides of the block are made of groups of two strips of fabric and the other two sides are each made of one thick white strip. You can follow the tutorial here.

Let me introduce Tic Tac Tigerlilly!  I’m not sure why, but this one totally reminds me of a tic tac toe game. Do you see it? We didn’t know how many blocks we’d get or how big the quilt would be. But we did know how we wanted to lay it out and that we’d need at least four groups of four. We got more than enough for four groups of four.

I took the 16 that were the right size and the correct layout and the requested fabrics and put those together to make this quilt. The quilting was done by Cindy Kraft. Love how the swirls work with the straight lines.

For the back I found this great orange circle fabric that I love! And of course, I really love to use extra blocks on the back, and we just happened to have some extra blocks and an unfinished block to bring it all together!

Remember how I mentioned we had more than enough blocks… Let me introduce you to Scatterlilies!

For this one we used the more ‘scattered’ blocks. The ones that weren’t quite the right size, or colors or color placement. I added a little bit here and there to fit the blocks together.

A special shoutout to Pam Cole for doing both the quilting and the binding on this one.

We used the same fabric on the back of this one as the other one.
