Tiffany Quilt and a New Quilt Pattern

It's finished!  And I am ever so pleased with this quilt; it is calming and subtle, and also fresh and modern. 


I've enjoyed piecing this simple design ~ once you get your fabrics organized the blocks can be chain pieced and before you know it you've got yourself a finished quilt top.


The quilting has added another dimension to the quilt top.  It has given the quilt texture; turning layers of fabric and batting into a comforting blanket with beautiful drape.  Straight line quilting may well be more time consuming, but I think it is worth the effort for the effect that it creates.  The grids of intersection lines all add to the finished look and feel of this quilt.


The binding fabric is one of my favorite - there are many favorites! - fabrics that I like to use to frame a quilt.  This is Full Moon Polka Dot in Lime by Amy Butler.  Initially I had selected the same fabric in Cherry Red, but at the last minute decided that the contrast would be too harsh for this gently colored quilt.


It is usually at this point that I tell you that you can find this quilt listed in my Etsy Store, however it was snapped up moments after listing.  The good news is that I have written a pattern for the Tiffany Quilt and indeed the pattern is available for sale in my Etsy Store.


The listing for the Tiffany Quilt Pattern can be found here and is available for immediate download.

  12. What a wonderful quilt, the mix of neutrals with the geometrical fabrics is stupendous and the quilting is just perfect for it. I love how you usually reflect the front pattern on the back. Did you not do it this time? I missed a picture from the back, which are usually so lovely and creative.

  16. Great, fresh quilt! And I'm so glad there's a pattern! Definitely one to add to the list.

    This was one of the last things I saw last night before bed, so I ended up dreaming that as a result of your great scrap packs, you ended up designing fabric and had a limited release of cheater prints available, so we'd all have a variety of prints for this quilt and more.

    Perhaps an idea for your future? If they're as great as your gorgeous quilts, then why not?! :)
