New quilt pattern LET’S FLY from the DAY IN PARIS series
Finally DAY IN PARIS has hit stores and is available for dreamy projects. Like that one called LET'S FLY, a lap size quilt 60" x 60".
The idea is a swarm of snippets accumulating in a focal point. I highlighted this point with a lettered saying, but you can just leave that out and insert more snippets instead.
I think the letters, the modern capital font, give the quilt that special modern something.
Technically this quilt looks quite simple, and actually it is not hard to do. But on the other hand, working with various angles, not 45°, can be tricky and need some clear instructions (which you find in the booklet of course).
The letters are simply appliquéd with an easy raw edge appliqué technique.
This quilt is easy to kit or get materials for: you need just some yardage for the background (I've chosen my beloved Bella Solid Zen Grey, hehe) and one Layer Cake (an assortment of about 42 fabric pieces each 10" x 10").
The Layer Cake gives you enough fabric for a great variety and also for any mistakes in cutting your angled snippets. Actually three Charm Packs would do the trick too, but the costs would be nearly the same and the left over from the Layer Cake makes for nice enhancements on the back or for a matching pillow.
To emphasize the modern character of this quilt I chose straight line quilting with a randomly rhythm and framed the letters in a stipple quilted square.
