Weavers Cottage Quilt Pattern OUT NOW!
August 28, 2023
I had the pleasure of making a quilt for an Art Gallery Fabrics lookbook using my Hurrication quilt! The lookbook that this quilt was made for is the True Blue collection designed by Maureen Cracknell. Maureen is a designer from Pennsylvania who started out by sharing simple projects on her own blog. She has since worked with several fabric manufacturers designing fabrics. You can also find her sharing projects over on Janome's website too!
The True Blue fabric collection has a range of quilting cottons, rayons, canvas, and flannels in various shades of blues. This fabric collection was designed to 'evoke a balance of cheerfulness with tranquility and calm.' From light and bright to bold and saturated, this fabric collection is a true blue-lover's dream to work with!
I chose to make a Hurrication quilt with this fabric collection because it reminded me so much of the Hurrication cover quilt! (If you'd like to read about it, you can do so here.) Unlike the cover quilt, I went with the scrappy throw size version using 10 half yards. I have previously made a scrappy Hurrication quilt that focused on creating an ombre effect of the fabrics in the design. But with my True Blue quilt, I played around with mixing and matching my fabric combinations to make it look as scrappy as possible!
To finish this quilt off, I used an Art Gallery Fabrics-approved coordinating print from the Deco Stitch Elements line in the color Denim. I love the subtle texture this low volume print adds to the back of my quilt without competing for attention with the front. The binding on this quilt is a print from the same True Blue fabric collection. I loved the vintage feel of the floral print in the Wild Garden Breeze and couldn't resist adding a little bit more of it in my quilt.
I am so happy with how this quilt turned out! Since the pattern is inspired by our hurricane experience while living in coastal Georgia, having an all-blue quilt seems only fitting. I'm so happy I was able to create another one with Maureen's beautiful fabrics.
