I was lucky enough to be able to pattern test for the amazing Amber of Gigi's Thimble! I chose Jack as my first choice and boy am I glad I did! I love how this quilt turned out!
It's great for beginners since there are no crazy things like y-seams, applique or other advanced quilting shenanigans. In fact, it's even great for advanced sewers when we all need a little "mindless" sewing sometime, am I right? (maybe that's just me...)
I went with the new line by One Canoe Two called Hazelwood, and I absolutely love it! It's so colorful, and the prints are so nice! The background is Modern Background Paper by Zen Chic, it's awesome too. It has subtle background prints like newspaper clippings, geometric designs and of course dots!
For the quilting I went with Crop Circles. I love how the circles lighten those sharp, square lines. I think it's the perfect quilting to really make the quilt flow!
These prints I thought were just perfect for pattern, I had a few layouts I was playing with but in the end I left all the color groups together instead of making it random layout. The random made it look too scrappy and I already accomplished that with all those different backgrounds!
One of my favorite blocks, something about this print I think would make the perfect baby quilt sheet! I suppose my house will have to settle for a pillow!
Of course for the backing print I had to use my favorite geometric print! Hmmmm, that backing is so pretty i may just put the back on display for a while. I'm sure both sides will get their chance in the sun.
DId I mention we will have kits available? I only cut a few kits and some of the background prints are already out of stock! Sign up for our newsletter to be notified when the kits are available (you can do this by going to our home page and scrolling all the way to the bottom).
