Beth’s Patchwork Sky quilt
Beth made this stunning Patchwork Sky quilt for her son and soon to be daughter in-law. I absolutely love the navy’s and pinks, with a touch of rose gold metallics in the fabrics. The pattern is Patchwork Sky by Camille from Thimble Blossoms... here is the link to this pattern: http://thimbleblossoms.bigcartel.com/product/patchwork-sky-pdf-pattern
I showed Beth a couple of pantograph designs and she chose “Good Vibrations #1” by Patricia Ritter, available at https://www.urbanelementz.com/?acc=12 Which I think is such a great fit for this quilt. I did the wavy lines 1” apart, because it is backed in a navy Cuddle (minky) from Shannon Fabrics, and too much quilting on quilts backed with minky, makes them stiff.
Beth brought a cotton/poly blend batting. I used a white A&E Perma Core 30 Tex thread to quilt it.
I love this close up...you can see those beautiful rose gold metallics.
Lucky bride and groom!!
I had to share the texture on this Cuddle™️ (minky)!!! Side note...when it comes to minky, Shannon Fabrics does it best! They have the softest and it’s definitely more plush, the quality exceeds any other minky, they have a variety of different colors and patterns. This particular minky is 90” wide too, which is great for those quilts that are a touch bigger than the 60” wide minky. I tell my clients to use the 90” for the length of their quilt, if that works with the size of the quilt. I have a great video talking about minky on my YouTube channel https://youtu.be/g2SDbAcL56g
thanks for coming by, hope you’re summer is going well!
