Weavers Cottage Quilt Pattern OUT NOW!
June 01, 2023
Summer Garden was one of the first patterns I released back in 2018. When I started to move forward with the Garden Series idea at the end of last year, I knew I was going to have to revisit this pattern. If it's possible, I'm even more in love with the pattern now!
I took out the sashing and cornerstones for a more modern look, and I slightly modified the sawtooth block in the center to make better use of the fabric requirements. I also added more size options. Summer Garden now includes four sizes from baby to bed, and it is FQ friendly!
When picking the colors for the new cover quilt, I wanted to stay true to the original pattern and use oranges and yellows. I added in a bunch of teals to the mix and the result is the perfect summery palette! The cover version is the Throw Size version and I went with the ten half yards option.
Fabrics I used in the cover are Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids in the colors Celestial, Nite, Mosaic, Lagoon, Isle, Luna, Sun, Melon, Geranium, and Peach for the Flowers. The Center accent color is Iris, and the background color is Soft White to make everything POP!
From there it's just a matter of mixing and matching the fabrics! I have such a fun time with this part. With the colors I used, there isn't really any "bad" combo, but I love tweaking it until it's ~just~ right.
My favorite way of doing this is just laying them all out on the floor. Of course, if you have a design wall, you can totally use that too. It'll save your back and knees if you are indecisive and end up mixing and matching for a long time. Ask me how I know... Ha!
I'm so happy with how my new Summer Garden cover turned out. It's even more perfect than I envisioned when I was planning everything! And I love that it fits in so nicely with Spring Garden now too.
And for such a fun and summery quilt top like this, of course it had to be quilted up with a super cute design. The pantograph I chose is called Perfect Posy. Isn't it perfect!? Kristy Armstrong of @ohsewkristy got this quilted up for me! A big round of applause is needed for this beauty! 👏
Backed in Ruby Star Society print Strawberry Seeds in Dark Teal. And I loved it so much that I used it for the binding fabric too! It is the perfect pairing to go with the darkest blue I used in the top. Plus, it's not too busy of a print and doesn't compete with all of the fun happening on the front!
With the re-release of the Summer Garden Quilt, the Garden Series is halfway complete. If all goes well, I'm planning to release Winter Garden late 2023 and Autumn Garden in early 2024. But we will see! What do you think they will look like? I'd love to see your guesses in the comments!
