|Original Falling For Stripes|
I'm using Ann Kelle's Bright Remix Stripe for Robert Kaufman. I love this fabric. I used it for the binding for What the FMQAYGQAL? and I've been
The main directions in the pattern are for the 6 fabric layout of the original Falling For Stripes quilt.
There will also be a couple of alternate options, one of which is a solid colour background. There's also the option of not using stripes in the pieced blocks so it has more of an hourglass block look to it.
Here's the top of the first test, using just white for the background:
The quilt will be 55" by 67"-- a good throw size.
Interested in testing this pattern out for me? I'm looking for 3-4 people who could make this quilt in the next six (6) weeks.
Just so you know what you are getting into, the fabric requirements for the quilt are:
Fabric A (Stripe) – 2 ¼ yards (includes ½ yard for binding)** This calculation is based on using all the fabric as it is cut, without trying to have the stripes meet in the blocks. If you think you’d like to match your stripes, you'd best double this amount.
Fabric B (Light Orange) - ¼ yard long
Fabric C (Dark Orange) - ½ yard
Fabric D (Pink) - ½ yard
Fabric E (Burgundy) - 1/2 yard
Fabric F (Purple) – 1 yard
Backing – 3 1/3 yards
Batting – 3 1/3 yards
- You let me know you are interested in testing the pattern in the comments below or by emailing me at quiltmatters(at)gmail(dot)com. If you are a no reply blogger, please leave your email address so I can get back to you.
- I'll send you a PDF of the pattern, which you'll download to use to make the quilt.
- You make the quilt in the next six weeks and send me some feedback and photos of what you make.
- I'll send you two copies of the final pattern -- one for you to keep and one for you to give away on your blog or to whomever you wish -- and share your photos on my blog. And you'll have my undying gratitude!
Thanks for considering this!
I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
