Nature Sweet Quilt Pattern

I am so happy to show you this quilt! It is my new pattern "Nature Sweet". Here are the details:

- The quilt measures 59" x 79"
- The blocks finish at 10"
- There are 35 blocks. The half-square triangles for the pinwheels are made using the Strip Tube Ruler, a fantastic tool for quickly making HSTs (This is my preferred method of making HSTs; I make no money as I mention the ruler on this blog or use it on my patterns).

The downloadable PDF features step-by-step photographs of the block assembly process, and is available now from my shop Quilterly on Etsy

For the this sample I chose Timeless Treasures' fabrics from the beautiful, cheerful, and colorful collection called Perch designed by Rae Ritchie. The peach, teal, lime, and gray palette is perfect for modern quilt designs! As I was stitching the quilt I remembered when I would take my first boy out on walks: he would want to grab every bug he saw on the way but I was so squeamish! I grew up with a sister and bugs were the last thing on our list of things to touch. I learned fast as a young mother to find beauty in (and touch) bugs!

The blocks were pieced using Aurifil 50 wt thread. Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting matched the quilting motif to the print on the gray and teal fabrics. I love it!

Check out the backing fabric! The Perch line is gorgeous, and its prints are reminiscent of sun rooms, nature walks, and singing birds...

Loving this finished quilt and finished pattern. You can tell this is a great Friday for me! Enjoy yours,
