Indelible Fabrics Blog Hop

 

Oh my goodness, it’s blog hop time! Indelible, by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. I am so excited about this, you have no idea. I am soooooo happy to have been included. Rocky and I did a little happy dance when I was asked.

Indelible Park Bench Quilt

The Indelible Park Bench Quilt was the reason I was asked. It’s kinda funny because I didn’t really think it was that great of a quilt. As I was cutting it out I really wasn’t that sure about it. I thought that I might be wasting the fabric. Even after I had the top finished, I still wasn’t that sure about it. Though I had sooo much fun making this quilt, that I just didn’t really care. Indelible was a weird line for me — I wasn’t crazy about it when I saw the previews of it online, but when I saw it in person, it quickly became one of my favourites. And now I have some serious love for it.

The quilt blocks are the blocks from Jaybird QuiltsPark Bench” block of the month. However, I had so much fun making my Night Sky quilt, I decided to use the same layout as was used in that quilt (though I increased the size of the sashing so that each strip was 2″ finished to add more negative space). I think though that in the end it was the quilting that really made the quilt look nice. It was one of those quilts that was fun to make and quilt the whole way through, I didn’t get bored or frustrated at any point, which is just how I like things.

You can read more about this quilt in my previous post about it here.

Since that quilt was old news by the time the blog hop came around, I decided I needed to make a new quilt for the blog hop.

Rocky and I had a lot of fun this morning taking pictures of it.

We’ve been walking around the lake in town each morning, so I took the quilt and camera with us this morning to get some good pictures.

This was one of those quilts that took just as long to quilt as to make. But I had so much fun with the quilting. There is even some contrasting thread.

Which at first I was like “holy moly, this is a new thing for me,” but then realised that basically up until I started using a long arm I almost always used contrasting thread. So maybe not such a big deal after all.

There was some conversation about the real reason I married Rocky was to have someone to hold up quilts for me. Which might be true.

I did write up a pattern for this quilt, which you can download by clicking the picture below, or by clicking HERE.
