Going Up Quilt Pattern

Going Up Quilt Pattern

Thank you for all the Simplify love!  It’s my favorite quilt I’ve made in a long time, so I was excited to share it with you!  

This quilt is called Going Up.  It’s made with fat quarters in two colors, and neutral background fat quarters or yardage.  I have a huge stack of low volume fat quarters so I put them to good use with a couple of my quilts!

This is a simple, classic pattern.  A great beginner pattern and a great way to use up some fat quarters.  I love the two color scrappiness…but this would also be great with florals and solids instead of two colors.  

Kaitlyn also quilted this one, and it’s making my house look extra patriotic until the 4th of July.

Simplify quilt, a jelly roll pattern in 5 sizes

 I. Love. This. Quilt.   

This is my new pattern is called Simplify, and it is so much fun to put together!  If you’ve ever made my Basket Case pattern, this one goes together in the same way.  It’s a trick for the eye, without any tricky partial seams to mess with, and lovely nesting seams throughout (woohoo!!!).

You can make the Throw size version from one jelly roll (40 pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips), or use yardage cut into strips (instructions in the pattern).  I made a “jelly roll” for this quilt by cutting up strips from the Rifle Paper Co. fabric line Amalfi, then adding in some matching basics until I had enough strips.

Kaitlyn quilted this with a baptist fan quilting pattern, it’s timeless and it adds so much movement!   One thing I love about this pattern is how easily it works with masculine fabrics, more feminine prints like these, or even playful fabrics for a modern crib quilt. 

 It’s just a versatile, easy pattern I know I’m going to be making many many more of.

Speaking of cute things I love….my Jane turned 2 a couple of weeks ago.  2!  I feel like I just had a baby (in more ways than one if you know what I mean!).  She is pure joy…and she has more stubbornness and willpower than my older 3 kids combined.  ;)

Mauve Fat Quarter Friday Quilt

Fat Quarter Friday, an Easy Downloadable Quilt Pattern in 5 sizes

Don’t you love this time of year?!  May is my favorite.  We have a mile long want-to-do list for the house and yard, and now that the days are longer and the weather is nicer things are slowly getting crossed off. 

 Last night I woke up at 2 am to a squeaking and rustling noise in my bedroom.  After some detective work (while Jay slept soundly of course) I realized the squeaking was coming from a squirrel…inside the wall, right next to my pillow!  Of all the walls in our house the stupid squirrel chose right next to my pillow?!   So this morning removing the squirrel and replacing all of the crawl space/roof screens went straight to the top of the to-do list (yawn). 

Back to the quilt…

Fat Quarter Friday Quilt PatternI am so pleased with this quilt!  The pattern for this quilt is Fat Quarter Friday, the squares quilt in the throw size, more details of the top are in this post here

I sent this to Kathy for quilting and she did a beautiful job.  This dense popcorn/petal pattern adds so much dimension to a simple quilt. 

Before washing…

…and after washing!

It’s so crinkly and soft!  Because a lot of my quilts go to trunk shows or get donated, I rarely pull a new quilt out of the dryer to enjoy. 

The backing is a Moda print by Bonnie and Camille, and the binding is from my own line Hello Jane.

I hope you have a wonderful day and that you don’t have a squirrel living in your bedroom walls.   ;) 

Never a dull moment over at our house, that’s for sure!
