This was such a fun quilt to make. I’d planned on having it bound and hanging outside for a photo but I have been under the weather almost a week now. Getting better but feeling exhausted.
Island Batik sent a Gradient bundle to use in the January Ambassador Challenge from which I made a Bargello quilt. You can see the post and list of fabrics here. All fabrics are from their Foundations Collection and can be purchased throughout the year.
There was roughly an 8″ piece from each fat quarter so I decided to make another quilt to finish them off. The black solid, also an Island Batik really made these bright colors pop don’t you think?
The pattern is for a 38″ x 38″ quilt with 8″ finished blocks but you can add as many blocks as you like, just don’t forget you will also have to add additional yardage. Strip piecing makes is go together quick and you could also use AccuQuilt strip dies, which is what I did. The blocks are so simple that even a beginner will have fun.
For batting I used Hobbs PolyDown. They also have a PolyDown fiberfill that is great for stuffing.
Aurifil Thread for piecing and quilting.
Schmetz Needles in my domestic.
