rubik’s crush quilt top

After I made this quilt top out of fabrics from Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush in the Charmed palette, I couldn’t not make one out of the Swept Away palette. It just felt wrong to leave those other fat quarters just sitting there, you know?

So for this one I went for a bigger quilt, with larger squares of each print to really showcase the gorgeous fabrics. I paired them with a pale pink solid with a little tic tac toe-ish block within each pink solid block.

[This one was inspired by a duvet cover I saw on a commercial one day. Unfortunately I don’t have a link for you, since I can’t even remember what the commercial was for. Want to know where I’ve been finding inspiration lately? The TV. Perhaps this means I watch too much of it (hmm…) but I’m often DVRing something just so I can go back, pause it, and get a photo of the TV.]

But anyway, now that I told you about my crazy habits… back to the quilt! I’m looking forward to getting this one finished. It feels so perfectly ‘Autumn’ to me that I feel like I really should get this done before all the leaves are gone…

    Oh my gosh I LOVE this quilt! This is my favorite Innocent Crush quilt yet because it doesn’t divide the fabrics into all tiny portions, but it still has visual interest.

    I love, love, love this quilt top!! The design is wonderful– I am often thinking about how to show off prints using both large and small scale pieces, and this is a great way to do so! I also love the fabric, I wasn’t totally sold on Innocent Crush until I saw this, and now I want to make one myself.

    Umm, I think you may have over-shared. You’re a little crazy.

    I love the name you chose for this one. Though, I’d venture to guess that the commercial was for downy, not rubik’s cubes.

    Beautiful! I say … who cares where the inspiration comes from? It’s every place you could think to look for it :-). And it certainly produced one stunning quilt top. I am anticipating seeing other versions, inspired by yours, popping up around the blogosphere to come.

    please please PLEASE post a tutorial! i have those fabrics and am scared to cut into them because i need the perfect quilt…this is it!

  64. 64

    LOVE this. The tic-tac-toe inserts are perfect… especially because they’re off center.

    It’s a cool idea to use scraps and large prints at the same time.

    Hi! I would love to make one these, would it be possible to send me the numbers of the small and large squares? I think I could figure it out from there. I just got some parisville and I think it would look super done up this way!!! Thank you soooo much for posting it! Your quilts are such an inspiration!

    Shelley says:

    I am in love with this quilt. I cannot stop thinking about it and how much I would love love love to make one of my own. I often fall for quilts I see on blogs (insert every quilt you have shared) but this is something else. Are you going to post a tutorial? I am new to the blogging world, is it rude to copy a pattern? If not, what are the dimensions of this? You are so talented. This has everything, large & small. Perfect for an AMH line. Thanks for sharing & helping inspire.
