Trellis Quilt Pattern

I don’t know why it took me so long to work with ombre fabrics…but now I’m hooked!

This Trellis pattern is made with jelly roll strips, layer cake squares, or even fat quarters.  It would be equally beautiful in any fabrics, and maybe even more beautiful with a dark background…I’m obviously making this one again with some other options!   I used a jelly roll of the ombre confetti fabrics by V and Co for Moda (I bought mine here on etsy…they are getting hard to find), mixed with a jr. jelly roll of the new confetti colors.  You could get this same effect with a fat quarter bundle as well.  Jelly Rolls and bundles of ALL the colors will be available this summer I’ve heard.  

The pattern includes some tips for making the ombre effect in the layout, but you don’t even need ombre fabrics to achieve it.  You could also use solids, or… wouldn’t the Tula Pink basics be amazing in this?!

Nesting seams make this one easy to put together and is the trick for getting the nice points.  The seams of the points nest and lock together making the points perfect without much effort.  Because you know I love nesting seams!

Kathy quilted this one for me, and I backed it with a big floral from my Hazel fabric.

Layer Cake Bounce

Layer Cake Bounce, a Layer Cake or Fat Quarter pattern in 5 sizes

I had the idea for this quilt while driving by the Chase Bank sign.   Really…I did!  ;)

I find inspiration in the most random places.

This is a layer cake (or fat quarter) pattern, and I love the way the blocks “bounce” around the quilt.  It’s a simple one block quilt which means there are no long sashing strips to pin and sew (yayyyyyy!).

I used a layer cake of Bounce, with this white fabric as the background.   This small throw size only needs 30 of the 10″ squares in the layer cake pack… I love that I could be a little choosy and pick out the fabrics that look best against the white background.

I quilted this on my Bernina with my go-to wavy stitch (Bernina stitch 4, width set to 5, length set to 3).  The back is also from the Bounce line. 

 I can see many more of these quilts in my future…they are a great way to use up leftover random 10″ squares and sew up a quick quilt!  It’s an especially fun pattern for a kids quilt.

Positive Quilt Pattern

I called this quilt Positive because I’m positive it’s my favorite quilt.  Also there are plus signs in the design…so there’s that too.    ;)

Also I told you I was borderline obsessed with this background fabric…so I used it again with this one!

When I was working through this quilt design I had 2 goals, that it would be made with one simple block, and that it would have nesting seams throughout (imagine me slow clapping for nesting seams).

My love for nesting seams is right up there with my love for cookie dough. 

This one is the sister quilt to Simplify, with the added background and very different block construction. I obviously can’t get enough of plus quilts.

This quilt can be made with jelly roll strips, layer cake squares, or SCRAPS.  This would be perfect for the leftover binding scraps…or really any large scraps.  For this quilt I used a jr. jelly roll of the new Ombre colors by Moda, and the same gray background fabric I used for my Chickens quilt

Kathy quilted this for me, and I backed it with a print from my Hazel fabric line.  

I also made this one with a print background I’ll share later.  A print background is so good in this pattern!

Thank you for all the kind comments about my Chickens quilt!  I was so nervous to share that one…but I’m glad to know I’m not the only chicken lover out there.  ;)
