Blogger's Quilt Festival - Interleave Quilt

Monday, September 18, 2017

It's time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side! Each fall, Amy hosts a linky party on her blog for other bloggers to link up two of their finished quilts so everyone can be inspired and meet new quilty friends!

The second quilt I'm linking up is my Interleave quilt! (The first quilt was my Sliced quilt.)

I've started seeing Interleave quilts popping up on social media, so I wanted to see if they were really as easy as people say!

I started by reading Lorrie Cranor's tutorial. I followed the tutorial with just a few small changes so I could adapt the pattern to be able to use stash builder rolls from Island Batik.

Stash Builder Rolls by Island Batik

I am an Island Batik ambassador. We have monthly challenges with a theme. (February Galentine Mug Rugs and Kennel Quilts, March Mini Quilt, April Applique, May Modern Quilt, June Curves, July Baby Quilt, August Quilt-As-You-Go, and September Back to School.) There are still several challenges yet this year, and I'm excited to share some of the quilts I'm planning!

You can read my original post for the quilt here. In that post, I go into much more detail behind the scenes and offer a few tips too.

The quilt is made using a quilt-as-you-go method. Even though the quilt looks complicated, it's actually quite simple and comes together really quickly!

Once all the strips are sewn together, the quilt is already quilted, so you just have to add binding!

This quilt finished around 40" square. I used Warm 100 cotton batting by The Warm Co. and Aurifil 50wt thread in Stone #2324.

This is definitely a quilt on my list to make again!

If you're visiting my blog for the first time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hello! I like to post behind the seams and the story behind each quilt that I make. You can see all my quilt finishes here (or by clicking the tab at the top of my blog).

I'd love for you to follow my blog, and you can also find me around the web:

  9. This is one of the most spectacular quilts I have seen. I am putting this on my to-do list for 2018 (cause you know that 2017 is crazy busy and almost over). It is a shame that there is no more voting in the festival, otherwise you'd have my vote.
