edges and angles quilt top

edges2

It was so nice to receive a few charm packs of Laura Gunn’s Edges line, thanks to Laura and Michael Miller fabrics. To be honest though, I wasn’t sure I had time for another quilt. I have quite the stack of tops that I was hoping to finish before the baby’s born. But really, the more I looked at those lovely rainbow-hued prints in the charm packs, the more I wanted to see them in a quilt.

I have loved all of Laura’s previous lines – I think her style is so unique, and I really like the look of her hand painted prints. We continue to use these pillowcases, made from her Poppy line, on a daily basis. I love how her new line provides so many great basics and blenders, perfect for any number of projects, especially if you’re looking for a solid, but something with a bit of depth and texture.

I decided to chop the charm squares down to these wedge shapes, which I bordered with some white (Cotton Couture in soft white, which is my go-to white).

Once I had the wedges made, I auditioned a few solids for the background, but couldn’t come up with something I liked and/or had enough of. To work around that little problem, I decided to just embrace color and go for a variety of background colors. And I’m really glad it worked out that way!

Laura Gunn's Edges can be found in many shops now, including Fat Quarter Shop, Fabricworm, and Hawthorne Threads

The background solids are all Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids, which are available from many great shops, including Pink Chalk Fabrics, Fat Quarter shop (20% off through the end of this month!), Pink Castle Fabrics, and Bloomerie

    You are so talented. I can’t believe you just came up with this idea for a quilt and it worked. The shapes are not usual go to shapes, but they are perfect, and then different backgrounds but grouped in colours, it just works, beautifully! Well done! Love your little quilt model too. My four year old son loves to help, often exclaiming as I sew “oh it’s beautiful mum, I love it! Can it be my quilt?”. So darling whilst they still love everything we do, and delight in our company and attention.
