Chopsticks Finished

This pattern is one of the greats. It's called Chopsticks and is by Jaybird Quilts. Why do I say it's a great pattern? For one thing, Julie always makes her patterns so easy to follow with great diagrams. There is no 'trying to figure it out'. It's so easy! The other reason is that if you do a google search for this pattern you will see it in so many colors. You can't go wrong, all fabrics look great with this pattern!!

Mine was made with Joel Dewberry's Bungalow. I fell in love with this line immediately and knew I needed to make something just for me!

Of course when I was laying it out to baste it, both my kids wanted to lay claim to it!  I think my daughter may have wanted it for the backing. I used flannel on this one and the color screams Anna from Frozen (at least to me!).

You can really see my straight line quilting on the back with that flannel. What I wound up doing was dividing the triangle into equal parts and then stitching a quarter inch from the edges. I think it gave it a nice texture.

I used up my scraps for a scrappy binding.

I will definitely be making another Chopsticks!

This really turned out great! I love the colours and that line of fabric is just gorgeous, isn't it? The colours are so rich.

I've had this pattern on my To Do list for AGES, but haven't ever got around to it. One day.,,

It is beautiful Becky! Purple is my favorite color, so I guess I'm biased.
