I’ve called this quilt “Whiz Kid” and I designed and made it for my husband. I’ve made quilts for so many people, but my poor husband didn’t have one of his own! When I received the Mastermind Collection, I knew it would be perfect for Joe’s quilt. The colors are so bright and vibrant. I decided to pair it with a solid orange. Joe races motocross and his KTM bike is orange so this was just the right color choice. The orange solids make the prints from Mastermind just pop!
This quilt came together really fast with its simple Half Square Triangle zig zag pattern. The pattern is available as a free download through Connecting Threads. Just go here to get your copy. While you’re there, take a look at all my other free downloadable patterns! And don’t forget to browse all of Connecting Threads beautiful fabric.
I made this quilt just in time! Joe was racing recently and fractured his foot. He’s been home healing and cuddling under his quilt all week. Is there anything better than seeing a quilt get used to comfort someone? I’m definitely one of those quilters who wants to see my quilts getting used and loved. Wrap yourself up in it….wrinkle it up!
I also want to share with you a feature that I have on my blog. It’s called Quilt Blocks 101. There you’ll find tutorials for different quilt blocks using Connecting Threads fabric. Come visit and check it out!
