Lucky Square quilt top

DSC_0662

I've been plugging right along on my "pre-holiday sewing  to-do list" and got to check finishing up this quilt top off the list this weekend.  I started working on this pattern a few months back, after seeing this geometric print on a lamp shade somewhere, and it feels great to see it come to life in fabric.

I cut into my fat quarter bundle of Chicopee for this quilt, and really can't think of a better quilt to have used it for.  Those pretty saturated jewel tones of the line really pop against the white and, I think, work so well in a geometric patchwork design like this.  I had initially planned on using the left overs from the quilt top for the back, but am now thinking I want to hoard some of that fabric for a second quilt!

As this is the first pattern I've ever written up with the intention of selling, I am looking for a few pattern testers I am completely amazed at the number of offers to help out and to double check my work!  I have this pattern written up in 4 sizes, baby, lap (as pictured), twin and queen.  Thanks again to everyone who offered to pattern test!!

  20. this pattern looks awesome! I totally want to make one now. Chicopee is such a good choice for this, it all looks so great together and the prints are nice and small. I have been hoarding a half yard bundle of Hope Valley...this would be a good pattern for it!
