Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon
Quilt of Valor
58 x 69 inches
After Christmas, I found some great bargains on Craftsy for quilt kits. I rarely purchase pre-cuts, but the price (less than $30) was too good to pass.

Blue Lagoon was made from one batik "layer cake" (40 - 10-inch squares) from the Tonga Treats line.

Because I didn't want any scraps, I didn't use the pattern that came with the kit. I separated the squares into two piles - lights and darks - and then paired them to make half-square triangles (HSTs). The HSTs were randomly arranged the blocks to create Blue Lagoon.

Blue Lagoon is Quilt of Valor #84 - complete list can be seen here.

  4. It is very beachy. I can see someone in a beach cabin snuggling under it by the fire while the surf rolls in outside.

  5. Great idea! I have about half of a layer cake left from a previous project. This would work for using those up.

  8. "I didn't want any scraps" Ha, made me laugh, of the dilemma of a long term crafter.

  9. Very pretty. I like the way you "randomly arranged" the HST's.

  10. Nice job. How big were your squares 4, 5"??? I like how this one does seem to have lots of movement. Excellent. I too troll the kit departments of various vendors to see if there are kits with lots of fabric at a good price. Of course, I have enough fabric to make a lot of quilts so try to control myself some what!
