Interlock in Modern Patchwork

Interlock by Amy Friend

I have another new quilt to share today. I was quite busy over the late spring to summer period but only now able to show all these projects.  This quilt is called Interlock. It’s a jelly roll friendly pattern that I made here using Persimmon by BasicGrey for Moda. I used Warm and Plush batting.  Have you tried it before? It’s a new product that I found while at spring market. It’s like White and Warm but is 50% more plush. I wanted to use it to make quilting more pronounced. Here I used a fairly tight meander in the negative space and left the interlocking prints unquilted so they popped. It would certainly make for a satisfyingly warm bed quilt too. It’s a little harder to use because it’s heavier and thicker so it adds to the weight of your quilt as you are quilting it. It also throws a lot more lint during the quilting. I think I will use this batting on my bed quilt whenever I finish it….

I love the way this quilt looks in Persimmon but I think that the pattern is very versatile and could look great in so many fabrics. I look forward to seeing more variations of it.

You can find the pattern in Modern Patchwork Winter 2015 issue.  I like how they styled this photo of my quilt!
