High Tide at Kiamesha Lake

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Crystal Manning is a fabric designer for Moda Fabrics. She makes beautifully designed fabric! When she asked if I would make my High Tide quilt in her new Kiamesha fabrics, I immediately said YES!!

Kiamesha is a collection of prints inspired by the 1960s vibe at Kiamesha Lake. The prints feature sailboats, sunshine, fish, and pineapples! The full collection includes both blues and corals, but I used just the blue fabrics for my High Tide quilt.

The High Tide quilt comes together quite quickly! (That's my favorite kind of quilt!)

The bias tape, binding, and backing are all from the same blue Moda Bella solid. When I got the fabric, I didn't note the name, but I'm pretty sure it is Amelia.

I used Warm & Natural batting and 50wt Aurifil #2730 Delft Blue for sewing on the bias tape. It blends in perfectly with the Moda blue fabric!

Since the quilt is made using a quilt-as-you-go method, it is sewn together and quilted all at the same time! I really thought about adding some wavy quilting lines in-between the bias tape strips once it was finished, but since the purpose of this quilt is to highlight Crystal's new fabric collection, I opted against it.

I also kept the top and bottom waves of the quilt and used bias binding. I really love that detail of this pattern!

The bias binding and gentle curves really makes the process easy and painless. I used 2 1/4" strips and machine stitched the binding just like I always do! (Tutorial here.)

This is the baby or lap sized quilt from the pattern. It measures about 42" x 44".

This is the third High Tide quilt I've made! (See the other two here.)

I always love seeing the same pattern in different fabrics!

(I also love my quilt holders! They did a great job!)

This quilt is currently in Houston, Texas at Quilt Market. Crystal took it with her to display in her booth to show off her new fabric collection!

  1. Was this inspired by the Kiamesha Lake in Sullivan County, NY? I live in Ulster County, not far from Ellenville. I’ve been following your blog for a while, not knowing you were a neighbor.

  2. Great fabric collection. I love this pattern of yours. Once I get caught up on projects, I may just have to buy it. I'm curious as to how you QAYG with bias tape.

  5. This is such a beautiful quilt. I love the colors and the splashes of yellow in the prints. This would be the perfect pattern for donation quilts for kids. They would love those curves!!
