Last Fall, I made this quilt. There’s no pattern for it or even many details to remake it. I’ve had to wait quite a bit to show you, but finally. I was most excited about the hand quilting, but we will get to that!
Bari J of AGF asked me to make a quilt for her booth in the Fall quilt market with her new fabrics called Indigo & Aster. I was instructed to use large pieces of fabric to show off the prints and I was given 5 fabrics in the collection to work with. I think this quilt will end up being the least amount of fabrics I’ve ever used in a single quilt. Ha! But I managed.
Indigo & Aster Full Fabric Collection – Bari J. – Art Gallery Fabrics – 19 Fat Quarters and 1 Panel (approx. 35″)
Panel is a custom cut 35″ so that each of those cute animals is included!
The bohemian hand quilting technique involves tying your threads together instead of burying them. I’m in love with the process and look! I discuss this a little more in this video, but I’m planning a tutorial that just features this technique very soon.

Remember this quilt was made last Fall and at that time this was the biggest hand quilting project I had taken on. There were only 6 patches of denim to be hand quilted, but with the Kantha style I quilted, the whole process took 5-6 hours. Because I was in a hurry to have this quilt back to Bari in time for Quilt Market, I did all of it in one sitting. I thought my fingers might just fall off. It was not my most enjoyable make.
Of all the fabrics, that floral was my favorite and one I’d definitely like to add to my stash. See it better here.
