SPRING GARDEN Quilt Pattern OUT NOW!
June 28, 2022
If you've been around for a while, you might remember I had an obsession with the original Warp and Weft line by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society. I am hoarding FQ bundles of that line and the second warp and weft collection she came out with. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some of the newest collection, Warp and Weft Honey, several months ago so I made a Chevron Points with it.
I wanted to show an example of the split chevron style with prints instead of solids and one without doing an ombre/gradient. These fabrics fit the bill for that perfectly!
With a pattern like this, working with directional prints like stripes can be tricky, so I took extra time to line up at many of the stripes as I could, and I think that extra effort was 100% worth it. It didn't workout in every case, but when it did it looks good!
I wanted to use as much of the fabrics as I could, so I took the leftover pieces I had and pieced the backing. It is my favorite things about this quilt because it is extra soft and squishy having woven fabrics on the front and back. It was a little tricker to baste and quilt due to the stretchiness of woven fabrics and I ended up with a few puckers on the back. Honestly, I'm okay with it that way. They won't be noticeable once I wash the quilt and start using it!
I used a black metallic stripe for the binding. You can't go wrong with stripes for the binding. It's my favorite way to finish off a quilt top!
I loved making this one. It is definitely going to be a favorite in our quilt rotation!
