Anthologie Quilt (quilt reveal)


I am thrilled with the completion of this quilt. Making a quilt with such a large group is an amazing way to get your quilting on.

This is my Anthologie quilt that I made from October 2018 to the end of March 2018. It was part of the #BariJQuiltAlong and took place on Bari’s blog here.

During the quilt along I felt supported, encouraged, and excited throughout.

If you find that you often stall in your quilt making, having a group or QAL to hold you accountable might keep you on pace a bit more.

Also if you are new to quilt making, I feel like sampler quilts are a great way to learn many different skills and techniques within the same project.


This pattern will be re-releasing in the fall of 2020.




Intentions of Anthologie

By making this quilt, which is my very first sampler design (oh, there will be more), I wanted to explore the style “bohemian”.

I hear that everywhere now! I’m drawn to that style a bit, I think.

I also wanted to add other crafts/skills into this quilt, such as: embroidery, tassels, crochet lace binding, and crochet.

I wanted to step up my hand quilting game too. And after all the hand quilting I put into this quilt, I really feel quite comfortable with that skill now. I’m also in love and want to add it to everything.

    1. Julie, I adore you. Thank you for your kind words. I’ve loved watching your progress on your quilt. I’ve already told you that you have a natural eye for color. I cannot wait to see your quilt finished. Thank you so much for participating and for all your support. Big hugs, friend. ?

  2. Saw your comment and doubting your self-proclaimed ‘suck’ status at mom’ing- cut yourself some slack!! I am not one but know many and the hear many challenges that come with the role. Breathe deep and find quiet time ?

  3. I have so enjoyed this QAL, and learnt heaps! My quilt came back from the quilters today, it’s looking lovely! I’ve watched your video and am now about to add a few ‘extra’ bits of big stitch handquilting. Thanks for running this pretty QAL.

  4. I’ve never done a quilt along…my insecurities get the better of me and I end up book marking the project for a later date. Well today is the date lol, I purchased some funky fabric (Tula Pink, Fasset etc.) which is way out of my traditional comfort zone in hopes of making a funky quilt for my daughter.
    Well, I’ve been staring at this fabric for months not having a clue what to do with it…until today!!!
    I’m SO thrilled because this quilt will be perfect with that material!!

    Big hugs for creating this beautiful pattern….now I need to get off my duff and get this done in 4 days lol, so I can surprise her when she moves into her new apartment.


    1. Hi Michelle! I hope you’ll join in on the newest quilt along in September as well. Don’t be insecure! You totally can do this and there will be video tutorials all along the way.

      Good luck with the Anthologie. It’s one of my faves. ?

  5. Even though I am little late in the game, I can’t wait to make this quilt! I have found some fabulous fabrics to use. Looking at the fabric requirements, the directions say “Background – 2.75 yards” As I pored over the pictures, I was a little unsure which ones were the background fabrics. Is it a solid? Just trying to figure out what to buy. Thank you so much!

  6. Hello, this is such beautiful quilt! I appreciate so much the opportunity to develop my skills. I am late to find this QAL and so it is over; however I am excited about following along at my own pace. While printing the patterns I realized that Pattern 1-La Fluer is missing. When I click on link 2. La Fluer, Pattern 2-Floral Cottage Block comes up. I am hoping that you can direct me to where I might find the pattern for La Fluer. Thank you.

  8. LOVE your work and your quit along was so organized and enjoyable to follow. You asked for input so…..competition is a no-go. To me to win something would just be a nice bonus – don’t want to compete for it Thank you for your beautiful work. Little miss is one of my favorite quilts!

  9. Quite a beautiful quilt. I love the “Bohemian” adjective. It feels very much English Cottage/Garden-like, and a perfect porch quilt. The color palette is very pleasing to the eye.
