Dogwood Quilt

Amy FriendComplete QuiltsLeave a Comment

Here is the second quilt pattern that accompanies my By Hand fabric collection.  This quilt is called Dogwood because I thought that the simple geometric flower shape formed by the white and green stripe and the yellow prints resembled a Dogwood blossom.  Don’t you just love that off center, negative space column?  It’s my favorite part of the design.  I love the tension in that shape and how interesting it makes the layout!  This is a foundation pieced pattern that would be appropriate for someone with a general knowledge of paper piecing.  There are no particularly difficult to piece sections or anything that needs to be fussy cut except for the petals’ stripes but those are the first pieces on the foundation–easy peasy.

This quilt is a little bit different from the others that I have made with my fabric collection because, rather than using all the prints in the collection, I just used a limited palette of only 4 prints.  I think that this quilt has a great modern/traditional vibe!

Carrie Zizza did the quilting for me.  She used a scrolling vine motif that was centered down that negative space column.

I hope you like it!  Dogwood and three other patterns for this fabric collection will be released next week!  Keep checking in.
