Plaid-ish Quilt

 

After seeing this Plaid-ish tutorial by Kithen Table Quilting I just knew I had to make my own version of the quilt. 

I had gotten hold of a variety of red/pink scraps, and played around with the values to make the best-looking color combination. It is a scrappy quilt, but you can really see the plaid-ish design.

Doesn't this look like a nice quilt to cuddle in during cold fall evenings?

When making a quilt like this it is recommended to check the values of your fabrics with black/white photos on your phone. I did this early in the design process, and as you can see there is good contrast between the different fabrics in the finished quilt top.

The full-color picture shows a colorful quilt that turned out to be 46" x 64" when finished. Straight-line quilting was done with the walking foot with a pink thread.

Three pieced backing consists of three different fabrics.

This is my seventeenth charity quilt for the year, and number 61 all time for the children's ward at the hospital.

  2. I've wanted to make the Plaidish quilt for a while and seeing yours really puts the pattern near the top for me! You've chosen the perfect fabrics (and so awesome to use up those scraps!) to get the plaid effect. Well done!

  3. I love this version! I really want to make one and need to do a pink/purple quilt for a young lady...wondering if I have enough to make it work?

  4. Hi Anita! What a lovely and striking quilt finish. I was struck by the same inspiration but haven't acted upon it yet. You have provided me with more fodder. Love, love, LOVE your version. ~smile~ Roseanne
