Oh, this quilt!
I’m really digging it. I’m not sure if it was just the colors chosen that really suit my style, the abundance of low volume which I know you know I’m into, the incredible beauty of all those blue AGF fabrics or just the simplicity of it, but I’m going to put this down as one of my personal favorite makes.
And I believe it’s all those things that I love coming together.
Support a small shop.
Cate’s Sew Modern is plum full of fabric goodies. Check out the sale section here, I was surprised by what I saw there. I love how organized the shop is. I can find everything I need by manufacturer, plus there is a low volume section that is immensely helpful to me.
I needed a quick quilt to make for a wedding shower I’m attending in a few weeks, and this was exactly like. There’s lots of chain piecing, which is something I love to do, plus very little thinking s required of this quilt. If you really just want to zone out and get your creativity in, this is a great quilt to do that with. Also, it uses up those leftover jelly rolls that you have lying around.
Let’s talk about the yummy fabrics…
You’ve seen me purchasing lots of bundles of AGF fabrics over the last several months. I like to buy half yard bundles. Once you cut what you need from those bundles, I’m always left with these leftover strips of fabric that there’s not a whole lot to do with them
I don’t actually ever buy jelly rolls. I’m not crazy about the limitations of them, personally, but I still keep all my leftover strips from half yard cuts. Therefore, I actually have lots of jelly roll potential lying about in my studio.
That’s how I ended up with all of these lovely AGF strips of fabric. I color code my strip baskets and when I looked into the blue basket, my eyes lit up at what I had. Mixing between bundles is exactly my kinda thing. Scrappy with control!
Here’s a list of where a few of these came from:
- Indie Folk fabrics
- Boho Fusion fabrics
- Garden Dreamer fabrics
- Bachelorette Fusion fabrics
- Blithe fabrics
- Katarina Roccela prints
- Ethereal Fusion fabrics
- plus just some random scraps that were also in the blue basket
- All the low volumes are AGF as well
This quilt will be a pattern that’s available to you early March. It’s with my testers now. To see their progress follow the #GoodGirlQuilt.
I’ve been having a lot of thoughts on quilt patterns, what YOUR preferences are, your tendencies, things you like to see, things that annoy you. I’d like your feedback on some questions I have, if you are willing to give it to me. I’d really appreciate it.
I tend to write my quilt patterns in a way that ‘I’ like for quilt patterns to be. So my patterns usually tell you how much fabric you need, but how break it down so that you can use your scraps. I want to know if you like that too or something else.
This survey is confidential. I will not receive your name or email unless you give it to me. No judgments here. I’m only wanting some honest feedback.
(Also, this survey is for quilt maker’s who actually buy quilt patterns. It won’t apply to someone who does not.)
This survey will be removed from this post in about 5-6 days.
● Removes individual stitches, seams and threads
● Sharp, curved blade slides easily underneath
● Comfortable, easy to use
● No more troublesome stitching errors!
