Paradise Lane Quilt Pattern
You can pick up your copy of the pattern here!!
I am so excited to release my first quilt pattern of 2021!! The Paradise Lane Quilt Pattern was my first quilt pattern - though this version is vastly improved from it's original draft!
During 2019, we took a trip to Kauai with some friends. While we were there, my friends and I visited a fabric shop in Kapa'a and they helped me pick out a beautiful fabric pull! Do I have a picture of the fabric store, you ask? Unfortunately not, but I do have a picture of the shave ice I ate before shopping!
This - and all - shave ice we enjoyed on the island was so good, and it really was a magical trip. One of my favorite places on the planet is Hanalei on the north side of the island. We stopped at a taro field on the side of the road and took some of the most beautiful pictures ever!
When I came home with my pretty fabrics, I wanted to design a quilt that really captured the magic and beauty of that trip. The Paradise Lane quilt pattern is a re-worked and simplified version of the original quilt block I began working on after that trip.
For the cover quilt, I wanted to select fabrics that had a fun and tropical feel to them. All of the color names are listed in the graphic and they are all Kona Cottons. I also used Kona in Natural for the background.
Mix and match quilt blocks are my favorite, and these blocks come together fast! This pattern comes in four different sizes and is either fat quarter or yardage friendly. I really hope you enjoy sewing up these tropical flowers as well!!
The quilting of this quilt was another fun experience! My step mom recently purchased a longarm quilting machine and got it all set up around the holidays. She did the quilting of this quilt and it was really cool to see the machine in action. We selected a panto called plumeria, and the quilting came out perfect!!
To back the quilt, I used this gorgeous large muted rainbow fabric by Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, and bound the quilt with a soft pink solid and finished it off with some big stitch hand binding.
I love this quilt pattern and I hope that you do as well!
All of my quilts are named after streets in Phoenix, and Paradise Lane was the obvious choice here! Not only is it fitting for the pattern design, but its also the street a close friend grew up on!
