Weavers Cottage Quilt Pattern OUT NOW!
August 30, 2023
I had another opportunity to make a quilt for Art Gallery Fabrics! This time I made a Deltille Quilt for a fabric collection lookbook. The lookbook that this quilt was made for is the Haven collection designed by Amy Sinibaldi. Amy is a designer from Los Angeles living in Virginia. She's been a creative all her life and began blogging her creative projects and experiences on her own site. She loves "simple designs and lots of neutrals with happy splashes of color."
Haven is a fabric collection that features soft color tones with pops of color throughout. The theme of this collection is flowers and foliage which gives it a sweet, tranquil feeling.
I wanted to make my Deltille Quilt with Amy's Haven fabrics, because my pattern does a great job of letting the fabrics shine! The bigger blocks of this quilt pattern allow prints with larger motifs to be seen without fear of losing the print in the piecing. With the larger Haven prints in the mix, like Brushed Leaves Gris and Lively Isabel, I didn't want to risk them hiding in smaller blocks. I slightly altered the pattern to use 7 fabrics instead of the normal 11 fabrics for this version. I'm very happy with my quilt pattern choice and love how it turned out!!
I typically like to back and bind my quilts with solids when I use prints in my quilt top. I considered using a low volume print from the Haven collection for my backing - something like Berry Drizzle or Wisp Crisp. I just couldn't stop thinking about how much a darker backing fabric would pair with this top. In the end, I used an Art Gallery Fabrics-approved Pure Solid as the backing and binding! This Slate solid looks so good with these fabrics!
I am super pleased with this soft Deltille Quilt. I love that I am able to really see the prints of this Art Gallery Fabrics Haven fabric collection in the quilt. The prints play really well together, but do a great job of standing beautifully on their own. I'm glad I had another opportunity to make a Deltille quilt too! Out of all my quilt patterns, I've made this one the most.
