Tangled Quilt

Tangled Quilt

You guys know I love designing and sewing with pre-cuts!  Jelly Rolls are my fave, but Layer Cakes are my close second and you can use either with this pattern (or yardage!).  

Tangled is one of my newest quilts/patterns I made with Forget-Me-Not.  I’ve had this quilt messily sketched into my notebook for years, but for some reason didn’t really spark much interest until I started this quilt.  This block has many different names and variations, but mostly commonly I’ve seen it called a Celtic knot, and often a lovers knot, or slip knot.  

Whenever I’m designing with pre-cuts, my main goal is to be able to make a Throw size quilt with just one Jelly Roll or Layer Cake.  It makes my brain work and takes a little creativity to be able to get enough fabric and blocks out of the strips…I love the challenge. 

For this quilt, there are a handful of scrappy blocks thrown in that allow this quilt to be made with less strips/squares.  You can certainly leave them out if you have more fabric available, but I ended up loving the way they add a little interest to this design.

Knot and Thread Design did the quilting, it adds the perfect amount of texture and character that this quilt needs. 

This pattern includes 5 sizes, and will probably be the pattern I use to make a Queen size quilt for my 15 year old.  It has a more masculine feel and he likes geometric designs….but mostly it’s easy and I like easy when it comes to making big quilts!

Tangled is in my shop now as a PDF here, or a Paper pattern here.  

Forget-Me-Not isn’t available yet if you would like to make this exact quilt, but as soon as it comes out I’ll post where you can find it!

    Allison – I just love your fabrics and quilt patterns. Just yesterday, as I sorted my patterns, I realized how many of yours I still have on my to-do list :)! Hearing this is a Layer Cake friendly quilt, I just might have to add it in also, as I love, love the design, and have a few Layer Cakes that are calling my name.

      Yes it is a great scrap buster! I’ve seen similar ones made in all solids or two colors and that would be cute too.

    I had so much fun making a queen size quilt with this pattern. The directions were easy to follow and my quilt is gorgeous. Thank you!
