Today I am excited to share with you my most recent finished quilt - the Sprout Wovens version of my Beads quilt pattern!
I shared a bit of the process making this quilt back in May on the blog - you can see more about it here.
Get a copy of the Beads PDF pattern or Printed pattern.
The Beads quilt was inspired by a favorite activity between my son Grey and I, making beaded friendship bracelets. This is a fun, modern quilt pattern for advanced beginner to intermediate quilters, or those who enjoy sewing a few curves.
The pattern is fat quarter and fat eighth friendly, or scrappy for a really fun look!
Sprout Wovens fabric information
When choosing a color palette for this particular quilt I knew that I wanted a beautiful soft fall look, in an ombrè type of flow.
I used Sprout Wovens by my friends at Fableism - a beautiful yarn-dyed woven fabric in earthy color palettes. You can find all of the colors listed below over at Cottoneer fabrics - fabrics link to the sprouts woven page.
For the blackground of the beads I used a Cream colored Kona solid to really let the colors of the wovens pop.
Since the fabrics are woven and a bit more delicate than your everyday quilting cotton I decided to do a tighter quilting line on this particular quilt.
I kept my straight lines spaced at .5" - using the edge of my walking foot as a guide.
Cream thread worked well to really blend into the backing fabric and not be too out of place against each of the woven beads colors.

I had such a fun time going outside to take photos of this quilt - the leaves were a perfect match! I used my handy phone tripod to get some pics of the quilt while I was home alone - I found a new adjustable size with clicker that goes all the way to 6 ft tall - it's a life saver! You can find it here in my Amazon shop.
My sister in law also got married last weekend so I was able to grab a few shots at her beautiful wedding venue down in Martinsville, Indiana.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I am going to get this quilt all washed + dried and crinkly and list it in my shop soon - so keep a lookout if you are interested in giving it a loving home.
