When I saw a picture of the quilt Throwing by Zen Chic, I immediately bought the pattern and started searching online for some True Blue fabric.
The pattern calls for 3 True Blue charm packs by Zen Chic for Moda, but I bought a layer cake on Etsy for less than the cost of 3 charm packs, which gave me extra hsts to play with.
The designer added a red and orange Grunge print to the mix. I used two different shades of orange and one yellow Grunge to my Throwing. This was my first attempt.
The quilt on the pattern cover and the design sheet inside the pattern are different. The cover quilt used more of the medium blues from the family of fabric, my final version is somewhere in between the two.
And while I did fuss a little with the placement of each block, not really that much more than I do on any of my projects, I'm just a fussy quilter. This is my final version.
This is Lifetime Quilt Number 199
The pattern is Throwing by Zen Chic
The fabric is True Blue by Zen Chic for Moda
It finished at 61" x 61"
I has approximately 374 pieces.
Now that quilt 199 is done I can start on quilt number 200, Due South.
First Step, prepping the fabric.
