Pivot Quilt - Palette Picks Version

Hi friends, 

Today I am sharing another quilt made with the Modern Handcraft Palette Picks Bundle for Robert Kaufman fabrics, the Pivot quilt

The Pivot quilt is one of my first patterns, and the first of my patterns using a curve shape - many of you have told me that it was your intro into sewing with curves! This is such a versatile quilt - it looks amazing in solids, patterns, scrappy - you find a bundle of fabric, it will likely work with the Pivot quilt

I knew that I wanted to try out the palette picks bundle and this pattern and make it kind of a scrappy look against a black Essex linen, and I love how it turned out! Read along as I tell you which fabrics I used and how you can make a palette picks Pivot quilt of your own!

Fabric Information:

Any time I can use Essex YD black in a quilt I jump at the chance, this and Kona white are my basics.

I kept it pretty basic for this quilt - and did straight line quilting, 3/4" spacing using a charcoal thread to blend in nicely with the Essex background and the Kona Steel backing.
