Indelible Footprint Quilt Top

Indelible Footprint Quilt Top by Amy Friend

I was thrilled to be invited to join the Indelible Blog Hop celebrating the Indelible collection by Katarina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. This collection captivates me. I love the doily prints, the text, so much about it!

My quilt top was made using a Fat Quarter bundle of the Subtle Watermarks colorway. I was inspired by a Moroccan floor tile design to create this hexagonal pattern. That’s also how my quilt top got it’s name. I have heard people speak of leaving “indelible footprints,” meaning footprints that can’t be erased, or a lasting impression.  Since the fabric collection is named Indelible and the pattern is that of flooring, it works!

I used my Sizzix Bigz Pro Hexagon Die with 5″ Sides. I was able to cut 4 large hexagons from each fat quarter though my design only requires 3. I cut additional hexagons from the Mystic Grey Pure Elements Solid. Then I cut partial hexagons from Moonlight Pure Elements Solids. I trimmed away the corners of each hexagon and added the Moonlight sections which create the pattern.

The hexagons were joined on my machine using Y seams. This was my first Y seam intensive project and it gave me lots of practice!  It just involves starting and stopping a precise 1/4″ from the edge of each hexie. It is a little slow going but very doable.

I am not sure yet how I plan to quilt this top but I will share it again once I decide!
