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!

Forget Me Not

Forget-me-not, Windham Fabrics

Today I get to share my newest fabric collection Forget Me Not, which also seems like a fitting title for today’s blog post since it’s been 3 months since I’ve checked in here!  

Life is busy and full, and for the past little while I’ve felt like I was juggling so many things, my blog ended up on the backburner.  As my kids get older it takes so much mental energy to keep the family running smoothly and everyone where they need to be…I’m sure you Mom’s with older kids know what I’m talking about!   I’m grateful that I can take a break when I need to catch up with life, and this blog is here when I am ready to come back to it.  I still love sharing here so much!  

Forget Me Not is my 8th (!) collection for Windham Fabrics.  It’s now being shown to quilt shops, and will be out in stores this fall.

I kept my classic colors, but they are a bit more moody with a few unexpected color combos since this will come out in the fall.  My last line Backyard Blooms sold out so quickly in 2020, I wanted this to have a similar look, but also feel new. 

The name was inspired by Forget-me-nots…the little blue flowers that grow where I grew up and live now (outside of Seattle), and my love of growing little flowers. 

This collection has a nice range of basics in it, which are my favorite part of every collection, and what I use the most.  Get ready to see the denim blue and red petal dot prints in every quilt I make for the next couple of years!

I made 5 quilts with this collection that I’ll share over the next little while.  I had so much fun sewing these!

Thank you for still being here and reading my blog, and for letting me share Forget Me Not with you!  -Allison
