Not So Twin Strips in Linen

Not So Twin Strips in Linen

I am writing a new post about this linen quilt for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.

 This quilt was inspired by a carpet pattern that I saw in a hotel somewhere a couple of years ago.  After creating a design in my software program with all the measurements for the strips, I made the quilt in a two color theme using a couple of Kaffe prints and two coordinating solids.

I was inspired to create this same quilt pattern in neutrals and linen after seeing a number of quilts using linen.  I happened to have quite a few linens in my stash so I combined those with several other cotton neutrals to create two strip sets.  I added the pops of color to add interest in the neutral background.

  

I am typically a “topper” and I almost always send my quilts to my favorite long arm quilter, Heidi at Rocky Mountain Quilting.  However, I am trying to improve my quilting skills and since both of these quilts are smallish, I chose to quilt them myself.  I did a simple straight line zig zag pattern on the blue version.  I got adventurous on the linen version and did concentric circles that overlap.  I started the circles over the pops of color. I love the affect of the quilting – especially after I washed the quilt.

    Love the neutral quilt. It definitely makes the colors pop. Are concentric circles hard to do on a home sewing machine. I would like to attempt those some day.

      It is easier than you would think. I used my walking foot and by rolling the sides of the quilt up, it was easy to rotate the quilt around as I was stitching the circles. Try it on something small first but I think you’ll like the result.

  3. Marci Girl says:

  5. It’s amazing that such a jaw-dropping quilt was inspired by hotel carpet. ;) You did some amazing work!

  6. Nina-Marie says:

    ohhhhh those circles add a ton of movement and texture to this quilt – love love them! If you see them pop up in the next year in my work you’ll know you were the inspiration. Just lovely!

    I have to go back through my pictures, but I believe I took a picture of that carpet, too! Everyone we go, we walk on some really great quilt designs!
    Beautiful job pulling this one off!

      I wrote the pattern with four sizes and it is ready. I’ll bring some to the Modern meeting next week. I’ve almost sold out of the first printing :)

    Oh, my. The quilting just pops on the linen… gorgeous work! Inspired by a carpet… that is so awesome!!!
