Boardwalk

This quilt was made for my living room (after a round of trunk shows).  The colors are so soft and soothing…which is just what my living room needs this very second now that the Halloween décor is down.
The fabrics are a mish-mash as usual.  For quilts like this one I plan out the color scheme I want first…then I choose fabrics based on those colors, instead of sticking to just one or two fabric lines.  I love pulling and choosing fabrics, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking to one fabric line either!
This one is very beginner friendly and comes in 4 sizes.  I quilted it with a loopty-loop pattern on my own machine.
And because I hate having scraps…there are directions included for a pillow:

 

Luckily it’s a really tough pillow as its been jumped on about 100000 times by the 2 year old that rules my house.
The pattern can be found here in PDF or hard copy.

    Another fantastic pattern Allison! One of the things I love about your patterns is how your pull from your fabrics. I don't always have a full line and really like to use the fabric I have. :o)
    My two patterns arrived yesterday! Thanks. Can't wait to make them! :o)

    Delightful! The colors are soothing! You have the cutest patterns. Just purchased your Seville pattern to make a quilt for my daughter. Now need to figure out some fabrics :) I like to pull fabrics but feel like I over think the process. Love it when it all comes together!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wonderful colors. The first quilt I ever made many years ago was the pillow pattern and it was called Split Rail.

    GEE!!! I am in love with the colors!!! You are so right, they are soft and soothing!

    I've decided something: since you are so good at taking a mishmash of different lines and patterns and making them look good together and I don't think *I* am good at that, I have an idea: everytime you make a quilt, just cut a little more and put aside a little quilt kit for me to buy from you. That way all the thinking is done for me and I get a great colors and patterns in my quilt just like yours. Okay? Thankyouverymuch.
