Beveled Blocks Top and Back Done!

My most recent quilt top, Beveled Blocks, is finished! I even got a back pieced for it already.

Beveled Blocks top, 60.5" x 72.5"

The back includes four leftover quilt blocks at the center.

Beveled Blocks backing, 71" x 85"

Most of my quilting time is spent switching around between multiple projects. They might be block-of-the-week or -month quilts that I'm trying to keep caught up, or ongoing projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with a block pattern repeated each month in a different color. I like having a variety of projects in the works. It's helpful to be able to choose what I'm in the mood to work on rather than what needs to be done next on a single project.

Despite that tendency, there are times when I get totally absorbed by a single project and all others fall to the wayside temporarily. That was the case last week. I pulled out the Beveled Blocks kit that I had purchased way back in 2009! Within a week I had made all the blocks and gotten them joined together into a top. A few days later, the backing was also done.

I had made a few sample blocks from this pattern several years earlier, and I even made a smaller wallhanging version with blues and tans in 2018 which hangs above the fireplace in our living room. It is easy to vary the block size with this pattern, and the piecing goes quickly.

The Beveled Blocks pattern is by Aardvark Quilts. I don't see it listed on their website, but I believe it is still available from other retailers.

This quilt top and backing will be going to Kat's Covered in Love quilting charity in Texas. They are one of the designated charities for the 2021 Hands 2 Help Quilt Challenge.
