High Tide Quilt

Friday, August 23, 2019

I designed the High Tide quilt almost a year ago. I had planned to use completely different fabrics, but for a long list of reasons, the quilt never happened. Fast forward to this summer, and I knew the design would be perfect for Mister Domestic's Catch & Release fabric!

I knew I wanted that quilt to be on the cover of the pattern, but didn't want to cut into the fabrics until I had really made sure the pattern was ready.

So I made the first sample quilt with some leftover fabrics from the By Hand collection designed by Amy Friend of During Quiet Time for Contempo (There is still yardage and precuts on Amazon! Search for "By Hand Contempo to see them all!)

I absolutely love how different this one looks!

The By Hand version uses only 12 fabrics, so it is the baby/lap size in the pattern. The Catch & Release version uses 15 fabrics, and is the longer throw size.

Another difference is the top and bottom straight/scalloped edges. In the By Hand version, I cut the top and bottom pieces to remain straight so I could use straight of grain binding. But in the Catch & Release version, I cut the top and bottom as waves and used bias binding.

For the Catch & Release version, I used Art Gallery Fabrics' new Heart of the Ocean solid blue for the bias tape and binding. For the By Hand version, I used Kona Cerise for the bias tape and binding.

Same pattern, but two completely different looks! I absolutely love that!

High Tide is perfect for fabrics that you love and don't really want to cut up. (I know you are hoarding collecting a few!) I really want to make a Christmas version next! How amazing would an Alison Glass Holiday version be??

High Tide uses bias tape applique and has absolutely no curved piecing! And it's made using a quilt-as-you-go method! It's really a quick and fun quilt to make!

The pattern includes directions for five sizes including a table runner, baby/lap quilt, throw quilt, twin sized quilt, and queen sized quilt.

AND the pattern uses 5" x WOF strips. Did you know companies like Island Batik, Moda, and Free Spirit Fabrics all make precuts that are strips like that?? Moda calls them "Dessert Rolls," Free Spirit calls them "Design Strips," and Island Batik calls them "Stash Builder Rolls." Of course you can cut your own from yardage too!

  12. This is a terrific pattern for those fabrics that need to be featured in large pieces (that we are all carefully protecting from the rotary cutter - which is Not hoarding..... lol). It looks great in the catch and release fabrics, I love the bias tape, very clever of you to make it QAYG.
