Thank you for stopping by to check out my newest pattern, \”Sweetly Scalloped.\” My vision with \”Sweetly Scalloped\” was to design a quilt that would show the range and beauty of a fabric line, with special emphasis on a favored focal fabric. I wanted a design that was clean and linear, but also incorporated soft, sweet edges. So out of that idea emerged a layering of several 2 1/2\” strips and a favorite floral fabric, all framed by soft scallops. I hope you like it!
\”Sweetly Scalloped\” measures 59 1/2\” x 70 1/2\” and is jelly roll or rolie polie friendly. For my quilt, I decided to create my own strip set by cutting 2 1/2\” strips from several of my favorite Fig Tree & Company fabrics. I think I may have five Fig Tree lines in this quilt, which I love! It is pictured below as a layered throw on a full sized bed. You could add an additional border or two if you wanted a larger quilt with more drop!
When making your choices for this quilt, the key is selecting a strong focal fabric (mine is the red floral from Strawberry Fields Revisited) and a prominent scallop fabric, and then building from there. I am already imagining this quilt in seasonal prints or children\’s fabric with a vintage flair. The possibilities are endless!
\”Sweetly Scalloped\” is available on my Etsy Shop. Special thank you to Barb Erickson at Quilts on Broadway for the lovely quilting! We chose a design called \”Baby Curls,\” which seems to complement the fabric so nicely.
Thank you, blog readers, for your continued support and encouragement! I hope you will give \”Sweetly Scalloped\” a try. It is a fun weekend project and a great excuse to break into your favorite 2 1/2\” precut stash. Now head to your sewing room and get carried away quilting, my friends!
