Boardwalk

IMG_5634

This quilt was made for my living room (after a round of trunk shows).  The colors are so soft and soothing…which is just what my living room needs this very second now that the Halloween d├ęcor is down.

The fabrics are a mish-mash as usual.  For quilts like this one I plan out the color scheme I want first…then I choose fabrics based on those colors, instead of sticking to just one or two fabric lines.  I love pulling and choosing fabrics, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking to one fabric line either!

This one is very beginner friendly and comes in 4 sizes.  I quilted it with a loopty-loop pattern on my own machine.

And because I hate having scraps…there are directions included for a pillow:

Luckily it’s a really tough pillow as its been jumped on about 100000 times by the 2 year old that rules my house. 

The pattern can be found here in PDF or hard copy. 

Pin It!

Another fantastic pattern Allison! One of the things I love about your patterns is how your pull from your fabrics. I don't always have a full line and really like to use the fabric I have. :o)
My two patterns arrived yesterday! Thanks. Can't wait to make them! :o)

Delightful! The colors are soothing! You have the cutest patterns. Just purchased your Seville pattern to make a quilt for my daughter. Now need to figure out some fabrics :) I like to pull fabrics but feel like I over think the process. Love it when it all comes together!!!!!!!!!!!

Love it! And I LOVE the pillow!

Sewing Sophia said...

GEE!!! I am in love with the colors!!! You are so right, they are soft and soothing!

Katy said...

I've decided something: since you are so good at taking a mishmash of different lines and patterns and making them look good together and I don't think *I* am good at that, I have an idea: everytime you make a quilt, just cut a little more and put aside a little quilt kit for me to buy from you. That way all the thinking is done for me and I get a great colors and patterns in my quilt just like yours. Okay? Thankyouverymuch.
