Today I am over on Instagram sharing my make for the Enchanted Influencer Tour - where we take turns making something with Valori Wells new fabric Enchanted for FreeSpirit Fabrics.
I have always been a fan of Valori’s designs, the beautiful saturated colors and how she is inspired by her travels and life for each collection.
Two years ago I participated in Valori’s Murmur fabric tour and made this fun Range quilt - you can find that project here.
Since images are a bit small over on Instagram I am sharing those plus some extra shots here for you to enjoy!
Does this quilt look familiar? I thought it might be fun to take my latest pattern Increase and scramble it up a bit! I took the 6 fabrics the throw size calls for, and positioned them in more of a mixed up layout instead of what the pattern layout calls for. I love a pattern that lets you make a few different types of quilts depending on the fabric and the look that you want and this one is flexible like that.
Another change I made this quilt was creating a square shape instead of the rectangle the pattern calls for - I did this by omitting the solid section that would normally go at the top. Now we have a perfect quilt ready for a picnic or the beach.
For the back I used the leftover hot pink fabric they sent me along with the leftover bits from the yardage and made a fun scrappy backing! Gives you a bit more of a look of the overall fabric designs and less waste is always good.
I quilted this using a pink Aurifil thread on my Janome using the curvy stitch, creates such a great texture to the quilt.
I am also having a giveaway over on the Instagram post - be sure to stop by and leave a comment for your chance to win!
Enchanted will be shipping in May, perfect timing for those summer inspired quilts!
