Blueberry Buckle Turn Dash
As a brand ambassador for Michael Miller Fabrics, I am so lucky to be able to sample the latest and greatest from their lines!
My goal with this project was to make a pretty tablecloth that I could use year-round.
I used Beginnings by Michael Miller Fabrics—available in a blue or black colorway. I chose to make the Turn Dash quilt - with some changes, of course! (check the original out here!).
What would creating be without tweaking a pattern? Here's what I did:
First, I used a 3x3 layout— I reduced the number of blocks from the lap size resulting in a 48” square quilt - great for a small table;
Next, I minimized my cutting by taking advantage of the stripes in this line! There are awning strips, little bead-like stripes and border stripes. I fussy cut to eliminate some of the piecing in the main block. Major timesaver!
Finally, I changed the setting squares by enlarging the middle piece so that it was the same size as the center square in the main block.
I just love how these small changes create a different look!
