Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Hang Time

Well things are a little crazy around here lately.   Things are moving right along with the remodel, I am teaching twice in two weeks (once out of town) and of course, to make it all the more fun, we have had a ton of snow ;)   So when I was thinking about which tutorial to share for Thursday, Throwback I decided that Hang Time would be fitting ;)  The last few weeks have really been all about trying to make the best of Time and keeping happy while we Hang In There ;)    So ya, Hang Time is just perfect!!!



Hang Time is such a fun and fast quilt to make!!! And this particular throwback is actually not a tutorial, but rather it's just a free pattern that you can download and/or print right here ;)   But it is super easy piecing, so you will be able to do it no problem with just the pattern ;)  It finishes at 75" x 75", so it makes a great quilt to cozy up in.  


And Hang Time is Fat Eighth Friendly, so you can just choose a favorite bundle,  grab some Background Fabric, and you are good to go!!!!  I used Allison Harris's beautiful Hazel fabrics,   which would be hard to find now, but any of Allison's Fabrics would look equally amazing in it ;)  I just love her fabrics, they are just so happy ;)    Whatever Fat Eighth Bundle  you choose, it will looks so great!!!


And I have a fun story to share with the quilting of Hang Time,     The first time I met Allison Harris was at the Sewing Summit back in 2011 where she was teaching a free motion quilting class.   I loved that class and learned so much.  The first thing she taught the class was how to stitch simple meandering.   So . . . I decided that Hang Time just needed to be a memory of that first meeting and class and what better way to tie that memory in that stitching some simple meandering.   And that just makes me smile ;) 


And that is my Hang Time quilt.  I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!    To make your own Hang Time  just click on any of the quilt name links for the free pattern.    And when you are done, I would love to see your quilt!!  You can email me a picture at happyquiltingmelissa@gmail.com, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  or or add it to my flickr group here ;)  I can't wait to see your Hang Time Quilts!!!!

  3. Lovely, lovely quilt! One quilting design that I would still love to learn - is the meandering design. For some reason I just 'get lost' in where I need to go - everything needs to have a 'destination' for me I guess :)! Congrats on making it to the next round with your pretty pillow!
