If you’ve been in and out of the shop over the last few weeks, you’ve quite possibly seen this quilt in one stage or another of it’s creation… it’s both a delight and a relief to have it done and to be sharing it.
The pattern is by April Rosenthal for the Moda Bakeshop – so it’s free! Follow this link to see the original.
It’s made pretty much from a jelly roll (or two, if you’re lazy like me – you can use a solid coloured jellyroll for the background). I used Spectrum by V & Co. for Moda for the colours, and a white Bella Solid for the background.
This isn’t the first time I’ve made this quilt either… I think this is a great example of how different colourways totally alter the feel of a quilt. Below is my first edition (forgive the poor quality photo!) – I made it for my sister’s wedding using Persimmon by Basic Grey for Moda.
In July, we plan on running a class for you to make this quilt with us. Save the date – July 29th, 2017, with more details to follow! At the shop we have quite a variety of jellyrolls to suit anyone’s taste (classic, modern, floral, graphic, even Christmas!), so if you’d like to come reserve your choice before they’re all gone, we’d love to help you! You can collect your plain jellyroll for the background too. Feel free to register your interest in attending the class with us as well.
We look forward to seeing you there!
