Patchwork Essentials: Unicorn Vast Quilt

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

Happy Tuesday! It's time to share a newly finished quilt!

I finished this quilt the day before we left for our holiday traveling back in December. I was determined to get it bound so that I could take photos of it on our trip! It was also my last finish of 2018, so that's fun too!

This is an alternative layout of the Vast quilt in my book, Patchwork Essentials: The Half-Square Triangle. This quilt top has been waiting to be finished up for a while!

For the background of this quilt I used a beautiful teal shot cotton. I know it's a Kaffe Fassett shot cotton, but I'm not sure exactly which color (I bought it almost 4 years ago)! The rest of the prints are quilting cottons from my stash.

I used Quilter's Dream Orient Batting to make this quilt extra lightweight. To give this quilt even more lightness I backed it in the firefly voile print from my Curiosities collection. It's so silky smooth! The combination of shot cotton, batting and voile makes it super summery.

For quilting I sent this quilt to Melissa Kelley of Sew Shabby Quilting. I chose the Tickle design, which is a nice mix of feathers and swirls. The thread is actually a light orange which really makes the quilting pop!

For the binding I used this funky sparrow print from Honor Roll by Anna Maria Horner.

It feels good to finally finish up this quilt. I only have two quilt tops left from the book now, and one is already basted and ready to be quilted! I am so determined to get them all finished up this year!

Happy Quilting!
