Over the past few weeks, I have been sewing with yellow to lift my spirits! It’s helped! This quilt is called Lacework because the block design was inspired by the idea of lace, one of my favorite things. I chose yellow because lace tends to yellow as it ages. However, this quilt looks great in so many colorways. I have mocked it up in several of them in the pattern listing. You will have to take a look.
I used Art Gallery Pure Solids to paper piece the front of this quilt. They are my favorite solids for paper piecing because they have a tight weave and press nice and flat! I chose to work with Canary, Lemon Tart and White Linen.
My quilting was done on my domestic machine using three shades of Aurifil 50 weight thread, in a diagonal grid. I used mostly off white but also added in thread that matched the two shades of yellow from my piecing.
You might have noticed that the binding includes a pop of color! I did this for a little something unexpected and because it coordinates so perfectly with the backing fabric.
The backing is a beautiful print by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery.
I made my quilt 36″ square which fit neatly into one of the panels of my barn door! The pattern that I wrote also includes templates for a 72″ square quilt.
This is a paper pieced quilt pattern that is appropriate for anyone with a solid knowledge of paper piecing.
