A Quilter's Palette Quilt Pattern

First I must thank you for all of your comments regarding my growing fabric mountain created during flurries of creativity, and I am ever so glad to hear that I am not alone in being at risk of being buried in an avalanche of fabric!


And I am also happy to announce that I have finished the quilt that I have been working on for the last week or so.  I have had to tie myself to my chair behind the sewing machine and laptop this week, stitching away to finish this quilt and then write up a new quilt pattern!


The new quilt pattern is called A Quilter's Palette!


I have thoroughly enjoyed working with these colorful fabrics, some of which I have had in my fabric stash for quite some time.  Fabrics aren't just for storing though and I am glad to have been able to use some of these special prints in this way.

 
The Quilter's Palette Quilt has been quilted in my signature style of straight quilting lines stitched with walking foot, one slow stitch at a time. 


Similarly, it is bound with one of my favorite binding fabrics, a black/white stripe.


If you are interested in creating your own Quilter's Palette Quilt you can find the quilt pattern in my Etsy Store.  The pattern is comprehensive and includes a fabric selection guide, and step by step tutorials, including photographic images for piecing and pressing seam allowances for all of the patchwork units that make up this quilt.

The listing for the Quilter's Palette Quilt Pattern (pdf file) can be found in my Etsy Store:  HERE. ~ pattern available for immediate download.

 All Red Pepper Quilts Patterns (pdf files) are now also available here:


Thank you for stopping by,
Rita

  3. Wow! That quilt is FANtastic!! Beautiful.

    I have a question for you... the binding black/white strip fabric. Do you have a source and/or name of that. I'm new to quilting and have been looking for something JUST like that. I would really, really, really appreciate it!!

  18. Oh. My. Word. I think this is my favorite of your quilts to date. And it might just make me break down and purchase my first quilt pattern ever (I'm generally more of an improv kind of gal). My absolute favorite part is how the little pinwheel corners tie together the different blocks of color- a wonderful detail! Well done!!

  49. What a beautiful quilt, you've made me want to take up this hobby when I get my sewing machine back.

    I used to live with my mum and sew a lot, I have fabric scraps that are too big to throw away, but too small to use and this is perfect.
