Last week when I posted my Cutting Edge quilt, I mentioned that it was the first of two quilts I made for Quilt Market. Today I’m happy to share the second. This quilt was made for Ty Pennington’s booth at market using his latest fabric line from Ty Pennington Impressions.
I am having trouble finding any 2012 swatches on the Impressions website or Free Spirit/Westminster Fibers website, but you can see some the fabrics up close on the quilt photos. I chose to work with a lot of the bright colors in the line…no big surprise! This quilt was exciting to make because even non-quilty people know who Ty Pennington is, right?
This quilt is made from square blocks, but I set the inner squares and crosses on point. The blocks are 14″ squares and the full quilt measures 56″ x 56″. I quilted it with free motion meandering.
I made this quilt and my Cutting Edge quilt over a period of less than two weeks. It was exciting and stressful to be a little part of the Quilt Market rush. I also wrote a pattern for this quilt that was handed out at market and if I see it online, I will update this post with a link.
