Queen Sized Wholecloth Quilt Pattern

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 time I went with a wholecloth quilt pattern. 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.

I was inspired to make this quilt after seeing 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 it was edge-to-edge quilted by a lovely local long-armer.

For binding I really wanted 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.

Arrghhh!!

I turned to Instagram in my hour of need (#greataussiedestash) and the lovely Tanya saved the day. Thank you, Tanya!!

Another machine binding completed in a mere hour. I could get used to that!

I prepared a project sheet with the fabric requirements, cutting and assembly instructions for this wholecloth 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 look 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!

  1. I loved your quilt and planning on making one. I do have a question about the yardage needed for the blue fabric. Why didn’t you just get 2.5 yards and no need to piece the strips. Or was that a typo in the fabric requirements. Hope you still remember since I just noticed you made this quilt awhile ago. Thanks in advance for your answer.

  3. I didn’t but after seeing this, I now have a hankering to make one. It will have to be added to the end of a long list though. Love your combination of fabric in this one.

  4. Simple and beautiful! That buoyancy fabric is one of my favourites, especially in blue-I wish I’d bought more. Yes a whole cloth quilt has been on my list for years too, just keeps getting bumped down the queue!

  5. Another stunner! We really have similar taste in fabric a lot of the time! That Totem print is one of my favourites, too and the red Woodcut is just such a great red print, so pretty and versatile and just the right shade/s! I’m down to just some scraps now … I love the fabric combination you chose! I’ve got some unquilted/unfinished tops and this made me think that I might splurge on having one of them longarm-quilted, maybe as a Christmas present for myself. It sure would be more realistic than quilting them myself, especially at the moment! And then I’d actually get to use the quilt! :-D

  6. I certainly have a whole cloth quilt on my future ‘to-do’ list! (But I want to hand quilt mine, Kantha style!) I am constantly on the search for that perfect piece of fabric! I love how you have combined the four prints here- beautiful Kirsty! You must be very proud of it!
