This week I'm going to be sharing the very last two quilts from my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle! You can find all the posts about Patchwork Essentials using the MY BOOK link at the top of every page, or here.

We are in the block chapter now, which is the last chapter in the book. All the quilts in this chapter use blocks (or parts of blocks) from the 60 block chart in this chapter. Read more about the block chart and the three free quilt settings here. Today we're chatting about the Getaway Quilt.

For more on how the book is structured see this post.

This is one of the smaller quilts in the book, it's approx. 48"x60". It's made with a single block from the block chart. The two color scheme gives it a bolder look and helps the individual blocks disappear a bit! I love these colors together, it feels like a quilt that should live in a beach or lake house.

I quilted this quilt myself! Every so often I itch to quilt some swirls, and this smaller quilt was perfect for it. I like to think it looks a little like waves or water to add to the beachy theme.

I used the binding to add a pop of color. The backing isn't a great match, but it was what I had on hand! I think it still works okay.

Only one more quilt to share after this! It's taken me so long to get through them all, and I can hardly believe the book came out four years ago!

Happy Quilting!
