Glibly Blithe - AGF Stitched

Happy Monday, all! We have another AGF Stitched with Kimberly Blog Hop today, hosted by the Fat Quarter Shop and sponsored by Art Gallery Fabrics. This time it's the Blithe quilt!

The Fat Quarter Shop provided the free Blithe pattern, the handy Triangles on a Roll paper, as well as a great video tutorial, and Art Gallery Fabrics provided the fabric goodness. The Fat Quarter Shop also has a Blithe Quilt kit featuring the Chalk and Paint line by Sew Caroline and a backing set available.

I'm happy to be sharing my version the fun Blithe pattern, which I'm going to call Glibly Blithe. It's a happy quilt and whenever I hear the word blithe, I think of Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables. ;)


I used a lot of Katrina Roccella's beautiful new Avantgarde line for my quilt, with some Imprint and Prisma Elements fabrics thrown in.




Look at this little treasure I found on Katrina's Bauhaus in Dissection fabric. Nice Marshall McLuhan reference, eh? :)



I have to say that the layered triangle design of this quilt is looks more complicated than it is -- I love the clever construction! Some of the larger white triangles are actually made up of a smaller square and two triangles, which gives the quilt the layered triangle look. Using the Triangle paper made making the 6" HSTs a breeze so the top came together very quickly.

For the the back, I used scraps from the front to mimic the Steps Above Prism fabric. A little whimsy.


The flu took down most of my household including me this week so I was only able to finish the top and backing, but I'm so pleased with where this is going. The binding is going to be the Steps Above Prism. Sigh. Isn't it delicious?



I can't wait to see what the others have done with this pattern. Check them out!
