Satisfaction Quilt Pattern
As I teach workshops, visit guilds, and even just read comments from quilters online, I hear so many of you saying that you want to sew from your stash. I can completely understand that because it feels really good to turn something that you already have into a useful, finished project. I get a great deal of satisfaction from it.
I designed the Satisfaction Quilt to bring you that satisfaction too. Satisfaction is a stash busting, sampler style, foundation paper pieced quilt. Each of the 12 blocks is unique and original.
Let your stash guide your fabric choices. If you have solids, use those. If you have pastel prints, use those! There are so many options! While my finished quilt has a scrappy look, I wouldn’t call this a scrap project. The blocks are large (18″ finished) and use primarily fat quarters and half yards. In this way, they really make a dent in that stash! I was also able to back and bind my quilt from my stash. If you are too, this project is free aside from the cost of the pattern!
The pattern contains 12 full size templates ready for paper piecing, and 19 full color pages of instructions, packaged as an easy PDF download.
The confident foundation paper piecer will find these blocks pleasurable to sew. They are not wildly challenging with bulky seams to manage or lots of tiny pieces. They require an average skill level.
The finished quilt measures 54″ x 72″ which is a great size for cuddling on the couch. I quilted mine with a 1″ diagonal grid so it has a lot of drape. Oh, I even used my Aurifil thread stash for quilting!
Pattern includes numbered, colored diagrams as well as full size, mirror image pattern pieces, ready for foundation piecing.
Basic paper piecing directions are not included.
