Elegant Spirit Quilt Created With The Fabric I Designed

image

This quilt top is done using the fabric I designed. The fabric is available to you to purchase through Spoonflower: see the link at the end of this post.

This is the fabric I started with. It is the one I designed and had printed at Spoonflower.

image

I made these 4 cuts which gave me 4 strips of fabric to use for borders. The remaining fabric was used in other parts of the quilt.

image

I put the borders and the blocks I cut for the middle of the quilt on the design wall.

image

I then tried to decide which of these fabrics I would like to use with the main fabric.

image

The fabrics I pulled from my fabric palette first were not the ones I used.

image

The final answer for me was to use only this mottled dark blue.

I built the quilt from the center out adding blue strips and more of the black and white.

Eventually I added the final border and filled in the open center to create the quilt top.

I choose black and white for the design as it is crisp, interesting and airy. You can combine this fabric with any color  that appeals to you.

You can create your own design utilizing the fabric in your OWN way.

This makes a great whole cloth baby quilt which is great when you need a quilt in a hurry and don’t have time to piece it. Babies see black and white first so it’s a perfect choice.

If you don’t sew you can mount it on a stretcher frame, foam core board or put it in a picture frame to hang on the wall for instant wall art. Every home has a place where you can use black and white.

This fabric would also make a perfect duvet cover, pillows, drapes, a table cloth or many other household items.

You can order this fabric in a quilting weight cotton, silk, cotton sateen, a cotton/silk blend,  a linen blend, canvas  or an organic cotton knit.

What a smashing scarf it would make printed on silk!
