Symphony Quilt

Today I'm excited to share a quilt I put together last month - the latest free pattern release as part of AGF Stitched, a collaboration between Art Gallery Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop.



This was a really fast and fun quilt top put together - the blocks are big so it grows super fast. Plus, there are very few seams to match, so it's a very low stress quilt to make. I'd actually intended on only making one block and making it into a cushion, but I enjoyed making the first one so much I decided to make the whole quilt. I think this one will actually be for me to snuggle under on the sofa. And winter has hit pretty hard the last couple of weeks, so it would be nice to finish quilting it sooner rather than later ;o).



Quite a few of the fabrics I used are from Nightfall by Maureen Cracknell, a gorgeous collection that features the owls I've fussy cut for the centre of the blocks. I also used the owl print on the back - so it's virtually a two-sided quilt. The low volume Pandalicious print I used for the background was so fun to use - I ended up deciding to cut the fabric so the print runs in the same direction across the whole quilt. It's only noticeable close up, but I think it would've irked me too much to not do it ;o).




I have started quilting this one (which is why the pictures all feature basting pins), and I'm having fun with it. So far I've only done a bit of the centre block, and I've been playing with a few different weights of Aurifil thread. The ochre/yellow section is quilted with 28wt Aurifil - and I absolutely love the texture these heavier weight threads give it. I'm really looking forward to finishing this one off once I've gotten a couple of deadlines sorted out!


I really wanted to mention an awesome giveaway Fat Quarter Shop is running at the moment - a chance to win a Hello Lovely” Cotton + Steel B350SE sewing machine to give away, MSRP $1,899. Head over to the Jolly Jabber for all the details on how to enter - and it is open internationally!



Have a great weekend, I'm hoping to be back soon with the beginnings of a couple of new quilts!

I like the colors you used in your quilt top. I also get needing to have the directional fabric all going the same way. ;)

Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl said...

Those fussy cut owls on the top are perfection, and I understand about keeping a print all pointing in the same way. That kind of detail is important to me as well. Enjoy the quilting process and hopefully you'll have a finish to curl up under soon.

Quite an accomplishment! Have fun finishing it up.

Isn’t it awful when you get these darn spam comments. Shame on these awful people.

Anyways, I was really excited when I found your quilt & instantly wanted to try it myself. It’s so great it’s free. It took me awhile to find it on Art Gallery Fabrics free quilt patterns but I was glad I did. Did you know there’s the same quilt entitled “Possibilities” that is just set on point? It’s not a square though but 68”x76”, but I digress. I see that in your quilt you made each block with different fabrics unlike the regular pattern calls for, using 3 different fabrics for each section. How ingenious of you. It makes a lot of difference. I decided to do either the same or cut it using 4 different fabrics but also laying them out so no 2 blocks would contain the same combinations. Of course with all the other quilts I have planned out it’ll probably take me another year or so to get to this one. I just wanted to thank you for your inspiration. Hope all is well with you. Happy quilting!

I have been married for over 13 years, my husband left me for another woman and i wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity for the real spell and if you have any problem contact him he is honest.Here’s his contact Call/Whats-app him: +2348055361568 ,or Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,visit his website:https://drunity.simplesite.com

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR.

So nice. I write my comment after I made it by myself. I remembered how I fast went home, prepared for my classes and found answers about how to write a thesis for dummies and only after this I started making it. All my family was surprised that I create something like this but they liked it.

Hi, I was looking for something like this on the internet until I finally stumbled upon this blog. It is splendid work! I liked how the author started the first paragraph in an interesting way and also used a witty line to conclude things. Apart from the research, grammar, and vocabulary, the one thing which has really struck me is the ease at which I can read this. There are no difficult words. I am a digital content writer as well, and I like criticism of my work. If you like to critique a few informative blogs such as this one, please go to this link:
