Today I am sharing a new quilt finish and a favorite pattern I haven't sewn up in a while - the Petunia version of my Pivot quilt.
Petunia is a new line by Kimberly Kight for Ruby Star Society and it's full of fun florals, ladybugs and turnips! The color palette can be used all together or split in half for a pink and orange palette and a softer blue and purple palette. I decided to use them all to create a fun rainbow flow of shapes on my Pivot throw quilt!
A throw size Pivot pattern calls for 14 fat quarters - I decided to use pieces from each fabric in the line so there will be leftover fabrics if you choose to use a fat quarter bundle.
Pivot shapes: Petunia Fat Quarter Bundle
Background fabric: Petunia Buttercream Springs Yardage
Backing and Binding fabric: Petunia Macaron Paper Garden Yardage
For my quilting I used my Janome 6700p sewing machine and the curvy stitch option - I believe that is stitch number 8. Make your width 9 and increase your stitch length to 2.5 or 3 - I also recommend using your walking foot and guide bar for this stitch - I kept my guide bar at 3/4" spacing from the top of the last lines curve.
