A Bungalow Brightly Quilt

Brightly quilt pattern in Bungalow fabrics

My friend Amy released a new fabric line that came out last month and I ordered a fat quarter bundle as soon as I could.  

I knew it would be perfect for another Brightly quilt, and a good way to show what the quilt looks like when made with Fat Quarters instead of a Layer Cake like my first version.

 I made a super dumbo move…before I cut my fabric I planned on fussy cutting those cute little houses for the centers of the star blocks, and instead I chopped up all the houses without thinking.  

Oh well…now there are pieces of the houses strewn all over the quilt instead!

The Brightly pattern can use 13 fat quarters, and since I bought a fat quarter bundle I had this pretty low volume bundle leftover.  Won’t that make a cute baby quilt all on it’s own with some solids mixed in?

This quilt comes together really fast, and I like the pops of orange here and there in the finished top.

I went for fast and easy quilting with my go-to wavy lines (Bernina stitch 4, stitch length 3, stitch width 5), using the seams and points as my guides. 

 Smooshing this through my little Bernina gave me a good shoulder workout…my arms were sore the next day LOL.  Obviously I need to do more quilting right?

The print fabric is Bungalow, the white fabric is Bella Solids 200 (sold out here, but it’s my favorite!), and the pattern is Brightly

Have a fabulous week!

Backyard Blooms Chickens

Chickens quilt pattern

There was no way I couldn’t make a Chicken quilt with my Backyard Blooms fabric…it was meant to be made into chickens!  

I made the small throw size of this pattern, which means I had to choose 8 fat quarters and took 1 hour (or more) just trying to narrow down which fabrics to use.  They would all be so good in this pattern.

My favorite block is this gal, in all her navy blue floral glory:

The reds, yellows, and tan solids are all Artisan Cottons by Windham Fabrics.  I’m not sure of the color names but the SKU’s are 40171-29, 40171-53, and 40171-62 in case you want to track them down.   

Bella solids in Mustard, Cherry, and Paper Bag are also close matches.

Kaitlyn quilted this with a chicken wire/honeycomb design like my other Chicken quilts

I just can’t quit the chicken wire quilting!

I had this quilt hanging in my dining room for a few weeks so it wouldn’t get wrinkly before I could take photos of it. 

We were eating dinner one night and my 9 year old said “Mom…it’s kind of weird to have that quilt in here while we’re eating chicken”.   

After that it was never the same, and I had to take it down LOL.

Jelly Weave

Jelly Weave, jelly roll quilt pattern

The last new pattern I wrote to accompany Backyard Blooms is Jelly Weave.  

This is one of those quilts that when you step back, or even just squint a bit you can really see the pattern.   I love woven looking quilts (like this, and this, and this!), and this one is so simple to put together.  

Backyard Blooms fabric

It’s made from a Jelly Roll (pre-cut 2 1/2″ strips) or you can cut strips from yardage.  

This is only the second pattern I’ve written with the blocks set on-point (on the diagonal).  The blocks are laid out and sewn into diagonal rows, and the edges of the quilt top are trimmed straight. 

If you’ve never made an on-point quilt, this is a good place to start with easy big blocks!

I made this quilt with just a few days until photos were due for the fabric line, so I had to baste and quilt this one myself in an afternoon.  You can barely see the quilting lines, but I did some simple straight lines 1/4″ away from the seams in one direction.  

It’s not what I would have picked if I had more time (a.k.a. if I hadn’t procrastinated until the day before), but it works!

Finn and Jane have become the best little friends.   It’s probably because she’s short and she always has food, but he is so patient and careful with her even when I know she’s driving him crazy.

Plus he’ll pose for a photo…will work for treats!

Jelly Weave can be found here as a paper pattern, or here as a PDF pattern. 

Puppy not included (depending on the day).
