The Finished Bella Skill Builder Quilt

For the last 9 months you’ve been watching as our blocks for the Fat Quarter ShopBella Skill Builder” have been put together.  Now – you get to see what each of our final quilts look like!  I’m sure you’re going to be so surprised to hear that mine is completely different than the example!

You can get the free finishing pattern here and it’s not too late to grab the Bella Skill builder Quilt Kits from the Fat Quarter Shop and press play with our friend and the Bella Skill builder quilt designer  Sherri McConnell from A Quilting Life!

Instead of using just one fabric for the border I pieced together my leftover pieces to create a fun border.

I only had bella solid fat quarter bundles to work with so it was going to have to be pieced either way … I figured I might as well make it interesting!

Once I had my quilt top pieced I sent it to Mandy Leins of Mandalei Quilts and let her do her quilting magic.  Bella Skill Builder Quilt by Kim Lapacek, Quilted by Mandy Lein And magic she did!Bella Skill Builder Quilt by Kim Lapacek, Quilted by Mandy Lein Every time I look at this quilt I see something new and fun in the quilting that I hadn’t noticed before!Bella Skill Builder Quilt by Kim Lapacek, Quilted by Mandy Lein

Every single grouping is uniquely and beautifully pieced – and to top it off, the quilting doesn’t distract or take anything away from design of the quilt.  That is pure magic in the world of quilts!
