Today I'm showing my newest pattern. This is the Thistle quilt. This couch cuddler sized quilt is quick to stitch and has a terrific eye catching look that co-ordinates well with nearly any decor. The pattern for this quilt is now available in the Curlicue Creations Etsy Shop.
Finished Quilt Size: 59" x 59"
Block Size: 12" x 12"
Fabric: London Calling by Island Batik
Batting: Warm and Natural by the Warm Company
Thread: King Tut by Superior Threads
This quilt was sewn using the Island Batik London Calling fabric collection.
The Thistle quilt is made up of two blocks. This one with darker fabric values...
And this one with a lighter, brighter look.
The two blocks play beautifully together across the quilt top.
I used the The Warm Company's Warm and Natural batting ~ my very favorite all cotton batt.
I quilted a simple loopy meander in an all over fashion.
This quilt looks great in the sunshine over a wicker bench on my front porch.
In this photo you can see a close up look of the simple loopy quilting. Easy quilt = easy quilting.
A look at the backing ~ I think this fabric is called Universe?
The binding is made with the same blue dragonfly fabric as the outer border.
If you sew a Thistle quilt, please send me a pic. I would love to see it.
