Blogger's Quilt Festival - Sliced

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 first quilt I decided to link up is my Sliced quilt! (It's seriously so hard to only choose two!) (The second quilt I linked up is my Interleave quilt.)

Sliced modern watermelon quilt

Sliced is a 60" throw quilt made from Kona solids. I used Watermelon, Chartreuse, Grasshopper, Black, and White.

The backing fabric is the large gingham Checkers Woven Basics in Cobalt by Cotton and Steel. I think it's perfect for this quilt!

I quilted this one on my mom's Gammill longarm, using an edge to edge loop design with a watermelon colored thread.

I finished the quilt with Chartreuse binding.

Since finishing this 60" throw sized quilt, I've made three in the mini 30" size too! (See the posts on those here, here, and here.)

The pattern for Sliced is available digitally in my Craftsy and Etsy stores. It's also available as a paper pattern in my Etsy store - and maybe in your local quilt shop!

After making this watermelon quilt, I've made several other food themed quilts too! I've made a lemon quilt (pattern coming in the next couple weeks!), bacon quilt, and a pineapple quilt (pattern was recently in Make Modern magazine!). I firmly believe quilts are meant to be used - so why not make them fun!?!

Have you ever made a food-themed quilt? Any suggestions for the next food quilt I should make?

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:

  1. I love the colors! Such a bold quilt. How about a nice chocolate chip cookie on a brightly colored background?

  2. I find picking two quilts for the bloggers festival to be a hard decision, too. I just love the contrast between your lovely quilt and the wall in your first photograph. :)

  12. This is one of my favorite quilts that you've made. Maybe it's because I love watermelon or maybe it's because of it's simplicity. Very nice!

  21. This is such a fun quilt! I think a strawberry quilt would be pretty neat :)

  22. YUM!! Your quilt looks delicious. The "picnic plaid" was the perfect choice for the backing. I'm just wondering how you maintained such smooth curves. I guessing it was magic!!

  23. That is a great summer quilt, in either size. I like the panto you used on it, too, gave it a textural feeling, even before I could see the quilting pattern.
