Hooray, I’ve finished my Parisville quilt! This quilt was made using a fat quarter stack of Tula Pink’s Parisville fabric.

Parisville Detail

This fabric is a work of art, with hidden images in the prints. Just beautiful!

Parisville Bench

These blocks were not hard to make at all. I cut out 8.5″ squares from the fabric and then I cut those diagonally into large HSTs. Then I cut strips of Kona Snow, 1″ x 13″. I sewed those down the long side of the HST and then placed another HST on the other side of the Kona Snow stripe. Square up to 8.5″ and you get a square with a white strip diagonal down the center. If you are not totally accurate with your 1/4″ seams, that’s ok (just be consistently not accurate so it all lines up in the end. ;)). Simply cut your squares at 9″ instead and then square them up to 8.5″ when you are done.

Parisville Drape

For the back I used Kona Cerise and a Kona tan color that I’m not entirely sure of the name right now. I added a simple strip of Parisville fabrics to the back.

Parisville Back

The quilting is free motion stippling. The binding carries over the same color as the diagonals, I feel like that really ties the design together. The final quilt measures 56″ x 64″ and will probably be listed in my shop shortly. If I can let it go. :)

    It’s beautiful. I love blocks with the white strip through the center. I keep thinking I’m going to do a quilt with them someday.

    I love everything about this quilt. I think Parisville is one of my all time favorite lines. As you say, the design is amazing and the colors are so gorgeous. While I have some of my FQ stack left, I may have to buy some more! Your quilt is simply stunning.

    It’s beautiful! I’ve been hanging on to my Parisville…very unsure how to best use it in a way that will show off the prints. I love how you’ve achieved it!

    I love this! A simplified string quilt that will be far less boring to piece, and really shows off the fabrics. I’ll have to add it to my “to-do” list!

    It’s been a while since I saw something made me say “I REALLY like that!” I hadn’t seen the appeal of the Parisville fabric until your quilt.

    However, the best bit? A simple to make quilt design! I love it, thanks so much :)

    Well…I read this post during a “weak moment”. I am so taken by your gorgeous Parisville quilt that I immediately hopped onto Hawthorne Threads and bought two FQ packs to make one for myself! I think this would be awesome in Prince Charming too…maybe some more FQ packs are in my future?

    Thanks for sharing your creativity…and I love it that you’re from Chicago…my home town!

    You really nailed it on the head with this description. This fabric really is art in and of itself. I am proud of you for even cutting into it! The quilt is gorgeous. Thank you for such great inspiration…

    It looks absolutely gorgeous!! I love how vibrant the colours are and how the snow sashing sets them off. I love that your sashing is so skinny too, beautiful!

    Tula Pink is just the most gorgeous fabric designer, such intricate designs. I have not seen her fabric in Australia though :(

    Lovely quilt! I like your bench too! Maybe it needs a quilted cushion made from outdoor fabric. :-)

    I am just starting my very first quilt and I picket this patterns. It is hopefully simple enough to get right but still has this look of something special. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!!!
