Up a Notch ~ Quilt and Pattern
I am a true believer that you don't always have to make an intricate quilt to make a beautiful quilt. I find this especially encouraging for beginner quilters who may not have mastered paper piecing or y-seams or perfect points (yet!), but still want to make something that catches the eye and wows their family and friends.
I recently made this quilt and pattern with all levels of quilters in mind. The underlying design is simple and one you have probably seen many times, but I decided to break the quilt into color blocks, changing the look of the quilt.
I just love these colors, perfect for a little girl I think.
I decided to quilt this using densely spaced free motion meandering, but I only quilted the white, negative space. This makes the prints pop.
For the back of the quilt, I used one of my latest favorites - FreeSpirit Designer Solid Jade as well as a print from Moda's Hello Luscious called Blissful Floral.
This quilt measures 45" x 60" and the digital pattern is for sale for immediate download in my pattern shop!
