I really love the colors in this palette – some indigo-y blues paired with golds and oranges. Really different for me and fun to step outside my regular-color comfort zone. (Here’s a great case of letting the pre-set collection do all work for you – I don’t think I would have ever been able to pull this palette together and I’m so smitten with how it looks. Thanks for doing all the work, Sharon Holland!)
Here’s a closer-up shot of how the quilt turned out. The pattern is really fun and comes together so relatively quickly and easily. It’s a great quilt for someone who’s fairly new to quilting. As you can see, I still need to get it quilted, and I can’t wait because I think that will only enhance the quilt. I’ll share again when it’s quilted and bound.
You can watch the entire quilt tutorial in this video as well as download the free pattern here.
There’s more info on the Fat Quarter Shop’s Jolly Jabber blog and you can see the same pattern in a variety of other Art Gallery fabrics from these bloggers. (I can’t wait to see what they’ve created – this is a quilt where the fabric and color placement can change the look of the whole quilt.)

One more shot. We hit the mountains for a hike last night so I brought the quilt top along for the ride. As usual. I can’t resist that setting. It’s become one of my favorite spots this summer.
One more fun thing from the Fat Quarter Shop – I’m loving their monthly Sew Sampler box. This month’s box included a bundle of Riley Blake’s new Confetti Cottons as well as a pattern, Alphabitties, cute twill tape and a Frixion pen. I always love surprises n the mail! You can see more about this monthly subscription box of fun here.
Thanks Fat Quarter Shop!
