Quilting Jetgirl started off the New Year with an Alison Glass fabric challenge. Well…I’ve kind of loved Alison Glass’ fabric for a long time. However I did not realize the extent of this love. As I went through my stash, I had a good pile of fabric – enough to narrow down to a specific palette. So I chose purple, teal and lime green and brought in a black Michael Miller solid for my background. (And I realized about half-way through that one of the lime fabrics was Tula Pink 😉
And what did I decide to make?
The pattern is “Crisp Apples” by Lisa Walton which you can find in Modern Quilts Unlimited, Summer 2013. Yes, I’ve had my eye on this pattern for a long time and this was the perfect pattern to showcase AG fabric.
The quilt I did before this had 9 seams in total and so this was quite a change. I started with 168 half-square triangles. Piecing-intensive!
There was also a point during construction where my mantra was “trust the pattern”. I didn’t think the colors were placed well or would work well together. “Trust the pattern, trust the pattern”.
