Tie the Knot-a one block quilt

I loved the woven look of this quilt before I realized it was a one block quilt.  Then I was sold! 

Fabrics N Quilts-Tie The Knot

The block is similar to a log cabin block.  Lots of straight sewing. {swoon}

I used Riley Blake’s Flutter collection & the red really set this pattern off.  I did deviate in my borders from the pattern and made them a little wider.  To make the weaving pattern work, the quilt really has to stay a square quilt, so I wanted it to be big enough for a king bed.

I even did something I rarely do…made bias binding.  I used the coordinating stripe for the binding because that pop of red, white & blue was just too perfect.

You can snap up some Flutter for yourself here, and the Tie the Knot pattern here.

Another unfinished project off the list!

Very nice! I can see it done in browns and greens for a more masculine look, too.
