It was my pleasure to pattern-test for Krista/poppyprint last week, especially since her Quarter Round quilt had caught my eye late last year! The pattern Krista is finalizing will include directions for both the four-block mini, as well as for her larger Round Peg, Square Hole.
Very precise cutting of fabric pieces and an accurate 1/4" seam are the keys to success. That said, the blocks went together easily and fairly quickly. It helped me to lay out all the pieces for one block at a time and then just sew, pressing per Krista's instructions. She's even included a coloring page for those that want to get really creative with the logs in each block.
I match-stick quilted my mini in the gray portions only, in an attempt to accentuate the colored solids. I love the look, though maybe should have given it a press before running out for photos. But I was so excited to find this awesome water tower on our retreat property that I didn't even notice till I got home. Worth it, I'd say!
So watch for Krista's pattern release soon! This is a fun one, and isn't that optical illusion something?!
