I started the Stair Bender quilt last week. It’s not difficult, strip piecing and simple sewing and cutting, just a lot of it. There are twenty blocks that have 30 diamonds, and each diamond has 3 pieces, 1800 pieces. I have been sewing in batches and chain piecing where ever I can, it just takes time.
I have also been working on quilting my gravity quilt. I had it on the frame and all ready to go, when I had to take it off to quilt a baby quilt. Happily, the young recipient is home from the NICU and growing fast. I used up some more of the Story book fabric line for this quilt, I think I have enough of this fabric left to make one more small quilt.
I used a cute pantograph of clouds and stars to compliment all the clouds in the fabric.
Linking up with Judy at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts for Design wall Monday.

Your stair bender project is very cool. it will be well worth the effort of all that sewing and cutting.
Thanks, it is one of those projects that after sewing for a while, you look up and realize “Hey! its a block”.
Stair Bender looks very complex, and easy to stitch wrong without close attention. Beautiful baby quilt.
The instructions are well written in a step by step format. There are only two blocks, the trick is how they are put together.
Love the Stair Bender. I have not seen this pattern before and it is very eye-catching. Your choice of fabric makes it very chic and modern. I am looking forward to a fabulous finish!!!

Thanks, you may be familiar with Christopher Florence’s other geometric pattern that is maze-like called “Labyrinth”. I’m making this one for my son, who likes more modern patterns and the turquoise matches his room colors.
Stair Bender is a great design and your colors are great. I haven’t seen that pattern, but made a Labyrinth quilt for my niece. I love the optical illusion effect.
