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.
You can find out more about Enchanted here on the FreeSpirit site (see the other color options available in the line) and also over at Valori Well’s website, Increase pattern can be found here.
