Last October I shared my new Journeys quilt with you, along with the promise that the finished pattern would be ready sometime in 2022. The process to complete a quilt pattern can be slow and tedious . . . designing, writing, testing, sewing, editing, retesting, sewing some more, editing some more, photographing, proofing and editing. I won’t lie, by the end of the process, I really begin to dislike my boss (me). But in the end, when I have an original quilt to share with you, it’s all worth it. The Journeys quilt pattern is officially ready!
The pattern is available as digital PDF on my Etsy Shop. It’s a great pattern for showcasing a beautiful collection of fat quarters!
Here are some quick facts:
- Finished Size: 69” x 77”
- Feature fabrics in my sample quilt: 18 fat quarters from Art Gallery Fabrics, designers included: Sharon Holland, Bonnie Christine, Maureen Cracknell and Amy Sinibaldi. (The backing fabric was from Bonnie Christine’s Open Road collection.)
- Background fabric: Moda’s Indigo Chambray
- Quilting: Woods Edge Quilting of Becker, MN
And here are the fabric requirements:
18 fat quarters……… Top & scrappy binding*
Neutral…………………. 3 1/2 yards
Backing………………… 4 3/4 yards
*Binding……………….. 5/8 yard
(If you do not wish to make a scrappy binding from the fat quarter fabric, then you will need 5/8 yard.)
I hate to be a tease, but I made a second sample of Journeys featuring Christmas fabric! I used the Christmas Morning collection by Lella Boutique, which is gorgeous. Here’s a sneak peek photo from when I was just getting started. Once it has been quilted and bound, I’ll share a full reveal.
Have a great day!
