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 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!
