It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival over at Amy’s Creative Side.
Here is the second queen sized quilt I made recently (first one can be seen here).
This quilt is full of beautiful saturated Anna Maria Horner colour and showcases the Summer Totem in Tart floral print from her LouLouThi fabric line.
This quilt was inspired by one made several years ago by Anna Graham of Noodlehead. As soon as I saw Anna’s quilt I knew I wanted to try something similar but with accents of red and blue. (Not sure why it took me 4 years to get around to it, though. Hmmm.)
The quilt finished at 90″ x 90″.
Fabrics (from centre out) are:
Summer Totem in Tart
Buoyancy in Coral
Woodcut in Passion (possibly my favourite AMH fabric ever)
Buoyancy in Deep
I backed the quilt in Carolyn Friedlander’s Crosshatch in Yarrow (wideback 108″) and had the quilt edge-to-edge quilted by a lovely local long-armer.
I really wanted to bind the quilt in the blue Buoyancy fabric however I used my last half yards in the quilt top and couldn’t find a scrap to buy anywhere. I did have an almost-half yard of Hugs and Kisses in Ocean and prepped it for binding only to find I was one strip short.
Another machine binding completed in a mere hour. I could get used to that!
I have prepared a project sheet with the fabric requirements, cutting and assembly instructions for this quilt. It’s a free download for anyone who would like to sign up for my newsletter.
So tell me, are you thinking about sewing a wholecloth-style queen quilt in the near future?
I have to say, it’s very gratifying to have it sew up so quickly.
I’m looking forward to snuggling under this one in about 7 months (it’s already averaging 28°C [82F] in my part of Australia so far this spring).
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend with lots of sewing!
