Unbeweavable Finished!

My second Unbeweavable quilt is finished! This was actually a quilt I cut out by mistake when I used my Cricut to cut out the first one. I was math-challenged and cut out twice as many pieces as I needed, only these weave in the reverse direction from the first quilt.

I used the Washington's Puzzle block (c. 1900) from my Blockbase software to export the svg file. 

The weaving color design was copied from someone else's design, only they are selling a special ruler to make it, but their minimum size block is 6". My finished blocks are 4". Without my Cricut Maker, I probably would not have attempted to make this, those little pieces would have been too fiddly to cut out by hand. I love my Cricut Maker.

Sadly, I made a quilt label for this quilt and then forgot to sew it on before I bound it. Oh well. I'm still new to making quilt labels so they haven't been added to my mental checklist yet.

For the pantograph, I used the Water Lily Allover pantograph, designed by Darlene Epp. It was included with my ProStitcher software. My goal was to align the pantograph curves so they matched the curves in the quilt. It was a bit of a challenge because I had to size the pantograph larger than the quilt and then crop it down to the dimensions of the quilt.

To be honest, I'm a little disappointed with my pantograph choice as I was not entirely successful in aligning it perfectly. It started out pretty well, but by the end, it was about a quarter-inch off. In future, I will likely be better off sticking with pantographs that align with smaller areas (like a row) or don't bother to use a pantograph that aligns.

On Friday, I'll be linking up with

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Wow great quilt and to be honest the pantograph looks fine on it. We are always our own worst critics are we not.

    1. Thanks, it is still a nice quilt. More than likely it will be gifted to a friend/family member so that bothersome pantograph won't bother me. LOL

  2. I love how the weaving design extends into the borders! What a great detail. Your colour choices are fantastic, too :)

  3. That!!! Is a cool quilt!!! Those colors weaving is an awesome effect!! I like your panto - but what I like the most is it lets your quilt top just shine!! and the focus stays on that amazing Design!!!
