Mountain Vista Quilt Pattern Is Now Available

Meet Mountain Vista - the latest pattern from Maeberry Square!

Mountain Vista comes from my love of HSTs and the mountains. Some of my fondest memories are from my time spent living in Colorado and waking up each day to the beautiful Rockies along the Front Range.

I designed Mountain Vista while playing with the Cross Stitch fabric collection from Alison Glass. The depth of colors as well as saturation and vibrancy of colors in this line are so dreamy. And by playing, I mean literally playing with the real fabric. Most of my designs start as hand drawn sketches or sketches on the computer, but occasionally I just start pulling fabric and making shapes and seeing what happens. I laid out around 15 different designs and fell in love immediately when I saw this design take shape.

The pattern includes a Throw and Baby size option. A fun element of this particular design is that color dynamically changes the feel of the quilt. My original version is the 18 main color option using Cross Stitch fabric. I agree with a sentiment one of my friends shared about this quilt – “It glows!”

 


The second version I made was a 1 main color option + background baby size quilt using Kona Bone and Ballerina. It’s so soft and dreamy!

 

The pattern offers five Main Color Options for the Throw size – 18, 9, 6, 2 or 1 + Background, as well as four Main Color Options for the Baby size – 12, 6, 2 and 1 + Background. Also, there are 18 color mock ups in the pattern – loads of inspiration to get you started on your Mountain Vista quilt! You can find the pattern available at Quilt Pattern Mart – click here to pick up yourown copy today!

Welcome to the Spring 2021 Quilt Coat Along , hosted by TinaCurtis and Jessica Plunkett ! We are excited to bring together sewists to make one of the hottest fashion trends around – Quilt Coats. We'd like to start by acknowledging that quilt coats are not a new thing, they were found all over the world being made by people of color and of all different cultures. Below are examples from the International Quilt Museum and the Public Library Quilts page. We appreciate the beauty of both of these garments and are thankful for the rich history they lend to our current mainstream trend. https://www.internationalquiltmuseum.org/quilt/20140070004 View this post on Instagram A post shared by Public Library Quilts (@publiclibraryquilts) This is a low key sew along – while we have a relaxed six week schedule to try and keep you motivated, you are welcome to work at your own pace. Here are a few key details about the sew along if you’re interested in participating!

Transparent Squares Quilt Block Tutorial

If you are new to transparency in quilting or need a refresher, this is a simple practice block to make to play around with fabric choices and the effects of transparency. Transparent Squares Quilt Block I posted a video on IGTV that explains the very basics of transparency in quilting. A short simplified version of what I shared is that transparency is the ability to see through layer(s) of an object. It can be real or implied. So in quilting, you can use fabric color choices to make implied transparency. The most basic way to achieve transparency, in my opinion, is to choose dark, medium and light values of one color. Understanding color structure is important, but being a master of it is not required to play around with transparency. For example, if a grey fabric has a lot of cool color blue undertones, then you have to be cognizant of how that specific fabric color plays with other colors. Also, it’s important to realize that while many colors are available in fabrics, it’s
