Clarendon Quilt: The Snuggly One
This particular quit is quickly becoming a favorite! I love the fabrics, the backing, and how snuggly it became after its trip through the washer.
For the fabric pull, I started off with a fat quarter bundle I picked up from FabricBubb that I LOVE! The bundle has mix of textures and a few prints I adore. I needed to make a couple of additions to the bundle to get the number of fat quarters needed for this quilt.
Then, it was off to cutting and piecing! If you've read the other two blog posts about this pattern, you know how quickly it comes together! I had all of my quilty components made within a couple hours and then I began playing with the layout.
If you are new to quilting, this is a great pattern to start out with. The piecing is simple and the blocks are fairly large. And the best part is that the quilt is different every time you make it!
I had the quilt top finished by the time we drove out to take some other quilt pictures, and I brought it along. This day ended up being one of the windiest days ever, but I managed to get this one fairly decent picture. It was a gorgeous day after a rare spring storm that left a dusting of snow on four peaks waaaay off in the distance behind us.
I decided to quilt this one with a loose diagonal cross-hatch (one of my favorite go-to ways to quilt a quilt) and it turned out perfect. Once washed, this quilting provided for the perfect amount of drape and cuddle-factor :)
The backing is from Sarah Watt's Florida line and the print is called Rock Springs. I adore Sarah's artwork and love when I can find a great large print for quilt backs. This print even has little spiders hidden throughout, which my son LOVES to search for. He and I will definitely be fighting over this quilt - or maybe I'll be lucky enough to share it during movie nights?
The binding is also from the Florida fabric line and is the perfect color to tie the quilt top to the backing.
