Hey guys! So glad to finally be able to show you my new quilt in the Summer 2014 issue of Easy Quilts! Looking at it brings a huge smile to my face. It’s the fabric (Lottie Da by Heather Bailey) and the ikat-inspired blocks, plus the fact that they are made from stripsets to simplify the piecing. It’s understated but so fresh, with colorful ikats punctuated with speckled plus-sign corners.
And as a bonus, Easy Quilts has assembly instructions for three different sizes, so you can even make it for a twin or queen bed. If you make this quilt, please share! I’d love to see your version! If you like this one, Fons & Porter has Ikat Quilt Kits available, so click over to pick one up!
Kimberly here! One of my quilts, Old & New, is also in the same Easy Quilts issue. I’m always inspired by vintage quilts at shows and museums, and this was no exception. I took a really fun block I had seen (not sure of the name, anyone know?) and put it in V & Co fabrics to make this amazing combo. Quilts are so timeless, and I think this is a perfect example. Petite little cornerstones add a modern flair to the quilt, and altogether the quilt makes a huge lap quilt.
Old & New Quilt Kits are available at the Fons & Porter website, so if you love my bright modern version, you can find them there!
Way to go, Kimberly and Jocelyn. Both quilts are lovely.
I love Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts, and I love these two especially! Great job, ladies. Kimberly, I may just have to make this quilt myself.
These are fresh,makes me want summer even more now! Kim, I think that block is a version of the praire queen block, but not sure. It looks so familar. thank you for sharing. That's what I love about this website, it has way more eye candy than others.
Love the fabric!!!!
They are both wonderful!
Love both of these quilts! Will make sure to get the magazine!
