Island Girl Quilt

Island Girl

I’ve been waiting to share this quilt with you for months! Back when I was making the two quilts for Spring Quilt Market, I was lucky enough to also have the opportunity to make a quilt for the Fall 2012 Issue of Scrap Quilts by Fons & Porter…at the same time. During those weeks, I thought I was nuts for signing on to make 3 quilts in 3 weeks, but looking back it was completely worth it!

The Island Girl Quilt is made from a beautiful collection of Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics. I had never used these fabrics before and I was very happy with them. Very soft and tons of colors available. I just did a bit of searching on Google to see where you can buy some now.

The blocks consist of a light, medium and dark shade of each color. The pattern has some tips on how to sew your fabrics to make the blocks go together a lot quicker than you might think.

I’ve spotted the magazine out in the wild already (at my local book store).

    Three quilts in three WEEKS?! I’m lucky if I finish three quilts in three YEARS! This Island Girl quilt is very pretty — I like how you created a 3-dimensional effect by using different values of the same color in each block.

    I just love this quilt. I read your blog post today and went out and got the magazine. I love that your quilt has alternate quilt sizes.

    That’s beautiful! I love how they look like circles from a distance, until you really look and see they are HST! 🙂

    I would love to buy this quilt… you have it for sale or know where I might be able to purchase? It is exactly so perfectly what I was looking for, have been looking for, for the past year, all over the web, you name it. I am not a quilter myself, but if anything, this quilt might make me into one if that is the only way. Many thanks for your help and your products are gorgeous!!!!!
