I'm back today sharing a quilt top that I just finished up yesterday! This is called the Blithe quilt, and it's the latest free pattern born from the collaboration between the Fat Quarter Shop and Art Gallery Fabrics. This collaboration, called AGF Stitched, provides fantastic (and FREE) patterns to showcase your favorite Art Gallery Fabrics, or any other fabric you might choose.
For my version, I used the Succulence line by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics. I bought myself a few small cacti over the holidays and have been trying to make a few small terrariums, so I'm kind of obsessed with them at the moment. I love the colors in this line and the whimsical prints mixed with some really great basics.
I should actually name this quilt 'Distraction' instead of Blithe, because I made quite a few errors both in cutting and assembling this quilt due to a generally heightened sense of craziness around the Adams household these days. No matter, though -- I 'made it work', as Tim Gunn would say. I made a few pattern modifications and still love the finished product. Lemons out of lemonade and all that.
Here are all of the resources you'll need to make your own Blithe quilt:
- The pattern
- Kimberly's helpful video tutorial (also embedded below)
- The Fat Quarter Shop's official kit
- Link to purchase the Triangles on a Roll used in this pattern
Enjoy! If you make a Blithe quilt, I'd love to see it.
