an Aunty Cookie quilt

I have been a long time admirer of Shannon Lamden, whose company goes by the wonderful name of Aunty Cookie. She’s based in Australia, and creates these wonderful screen printed fabrics. Back in the day (when I had time to spend hours browsing for fabrics on Etsy!) I spent a fair amount of time drooling over these designs. Needless to say, I was super excited when she asked if I wanted to play with a little stack of her fabrics.

She sent along these lovely pieces on the left – gorgeous grays, a little turquoise and a pop of sour lemon. I quickly (ok, not so quickly actually… I think she sent these at the beginning of the summer…) put them together with a few additional fabrics from my stash (though you’ll note that I actually ended up using very few extra fabrics in the final quilt, but it’s good to have choices, right?). As with my Lotta Charm quilt, I wanted to make a decent sized quilt with just a small amount of fabric, and I still wanted the quilt to focus on the Aunty Cookie prints.

I’m hoping I achieved that with this one. I decided to go with a sort of off centered square in square design, starting with the papercut design as the center block. I worked out from there, alternating Kona white with the other printed fabrics. When I didn’t have enough of a printed fabric, I added in some white, creating a fun dashed line look.

I’m really loving how it turned out! I can’t wait to get it quilted – I think it may make for a nice piece of art for one of our walls!

Shannon has several of these bundles available in her Etsy store in case you’re interested. And while you’re there, be sure to check out her artwork as well, all adorned with lovely pieces of Liberty. I’m thinking one of these must surely be necessary above my sewing table, right?

    I love how this quilt top looks and how you actually changed the look of the fabrics by just using stips of the prints. The color tone is just so inviting for comfort…once it’s all quilted.

    Wowzers, Ashley. That makes a big impression. I’m not usually one to go for lots of white, but I really like how you layered the prints between the white on this one. It’s a simple, yet somewhat unusual layout. Nice!
