Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang ~ The Belle Wave Quilt

It’s the Art Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang time again! Today I’m thrilled to share my second project with you, a quilt pattern this time. Introducing…the Belle Wave Quilt.

Belle Wave Quilt Pattern by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

This lap quilt features fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics absolutely beautiful Lilly Belle collection by designer Bari J. These fabrics are from the “Cool Sunrise” Palette.

Belle Wave Quilt Pattern by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

This quilt pattern is great for beginners on up. The cutting and blocks go together rather quickly. I decided to quilt mine using a free motion meandering design in only the negative space. I think it really makes the fabric pop. For my neutral, I used Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Elements Linen White. It’s a really lovely off white.

    Thank you for this pattern! If I wasn’t at work right now I would be starting on this quilt right this second! I have fabric picked out for a quilt for a friend (a quilt that is long overdue already), and I have been struggling to find the right pattern. I’ve started two different patterns and just couldn’t get excited about them… didn’t feel they were quite right. Now I think this is it, and I can’t wait to get it started!

    These fabrics and your quilt are very reflective of the early autumn dawns we are having around here. I’d be happy with a little more summer.
