This quilt was just because I love teal! The patterned fabric featured has such a depth of texture due to all the many tints and shades of teal in the ferns. Ferns are one of my favourite forest plants here where I live in the Pacific Northwest. They seem to thrive on our wet coast and they bring a beautiful depth and lushness to our forests. So, fabric inspired as I am, I created a quilt that would celebrate all the many shades and tints of teal. Using simple HST blocks with a variety of values I was able to achieve depth, movement and a sense of calm... all at the same time! I was very pleased.
If you'd like to choose your own palette with a range of values, this pattern will give you a place to showcase it and another listing contains just the pattern. If you'd like a kit, this listing includes all the fabrics that I used so that you can make your own just like this one. Either way, you'll end up with a stunning quilt, both simple and powerful at the same time.
The quilt finishes at 56" x 70". It is a great size for use as a throw on a couch or chair, or as an accent piece in a bedroom. The clean lines create a quilt that fits comfortably in a contemporary decor.
The pattern includes step by step instructions for piecing the HST blocks starting with pairs of squares wherever possible, thereby minimizing the times when you have to sew triangles together. The piecing is not complex and I would rate this at a beginner level. The instructions are very easy to follow.
This kit includes all the fabric for the top and binding, along with the pattern. You have an option of also including a backing fabric in a medium teal. As with all my quilt kits, the fabrics are only the highest quality quilting cottons. Treat it with care and you will have a lifetime of use from a quilt you make with quality fabrics such as these. I prepare the kits in my home-based studio that is both pet and smoke free. They are very pretty!
