The Summer Gypsy Quilt...
December 11, 2013
You know that quilt that you stitch that you love as much when you finish as when you started? Well, this is it for me - The Summer Gypsy Quilt:
It goes from pink to red to green to blue:
There's only three triangles of stitchery to complete in the pattern, in Vignette Issue 11, but you could add more if you like or even only do one triangle of stitchery...
I used my favourite Cosmo embroidery threads including a delicious varigated green - 8022:
It's quite a big quilt (perfect to snuggle under on a cool summer's night) at 70" x 80". I used a combination of three fabric ranges:
1. Gypsy Girl by Lily Ashbury printed by Moda
2. Flower Sugar printed by Lecien
3. Candy Bloom by Rosalie Quinlan printed by Ella Blue:
Candy Bloom would be perfect to do your entire quilt in, and you might like to add a little Flower sugar too:
The pattern in Vignette Issue 11 also has step by step photos of all the stitchery stitches used:
So you can follow along how I like to Back Stitch, Satin Stitch, French Knot, etc...
Come on Vignette 11 - we are waiting!!
