Shimmering Lanterns Quilt ~ Shimmer Blog Hop

 

Shimmer Blog Hop
Hello everyone! Welcome to my stop on Jennifer Sampou’s Shimmer blog hop. I first met Jennifer last Fall at Quilt Market – such a nice and talented woman! I was thrilled to have a chance to work with her latest line for Robert Kaufman, Shimmer.

Shimmering Lanterns Quilt by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

It was really fun to work with metallic fabrics. My biggest question was how they would react to my iron and quilting. I’m happy to report that I had no problem with either! Jennifer’s designs and colors are also so sophisticated. I’m very pleased with how this quilt turned out.

Shimmering Lanterns Quilt by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

This quilt is based off the Arkansas Traveler quilt block. You guys probably know I love that block by now! (If not, see herehere…AND here. lol) You can find the pattern for this block on Lee’s blog.

Shimmering Lanterns Quilt by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

I made a few changes to the block. Rather than piece the center focus of the block with 4 diamonds, I used 2 triangles. I actually drew those into the paper piecing pattern and treated those as pieces 1 and 2.

I also placed the blocks on point. I love that rotating a block 45 degrees creates a completely different look. When I first designed this quilt, I was going to make the entire background white. But after I laid out the blocks, I decided to use the beautiful Shimmer prints for the border background half square triangles. I am so happy I made that change, because it really adds the wow factor that this quilt needed.

    This is gorgeous, Faith! That’s funny that you were nervous about working with metallic fabrics — I had metallic fabrics in my very first quilt because they were pretty and I didn’t know enough to be afraid of them. It never occurred to me that they might be difficult to work with. Ignorance is bliss! Although, for frequently washed quilts, it’s important to know that the metallics fade away or wear off gradually over time. I still use them in my quilts; my husband says that if I was I fish I’d be a dead fish because I’m such a sucker for anything that sparkles or shimmers. 😉
