Everlasting Blog Tour - Ribbon Weave Quilt




When my friend Sharon Holland asked me to be part of her Everlasting Blog Tour promoting her Everlasting fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabrics, of course I said yes! 

I've known Sharon for seven years, and she's the reason I started designing quilts--she taught me how to create diagrams (and quilt designs) in Illustrator when we both worked for a quilting magazine. (So thank you again, Sharon, for teaching me those skills!). If you don't already, I highly recommend following Sharon on  Instagram. Everything she posts has an artist's touch. You can follow me, too, here.




Here are all of Sharon's Everlasting prints:


I've got a huge soft spot for all things teal, so I immediately gravitated toward the teal and blue prints in the collection. And those bluebirds! Here are the fabrics I chose to use.


I used the Everlasting prints to sew my Ribbon Weave pattern. The original design started with a Snail's Trail block, believe it or not! I love the overlapping woven look the navy and teal prints create, but I think my favorite part of this quilt is the skinny print border. 


This quilt measures 37" square--it's perfect for a wall hanging or a table topper. My boys happily drank those pink lemonades after I finished photographing this set up!


I really love the bluebird Summer's Dance print as the background in this quilt. The birds have a soft watercolor feel to them, and they're beautifully spaced across the fabric--it's so light and airy! 


But my favorite print is the small floral on navy, called Flower Keeper.These flowers, leaves and vines are so delicate! I used this print in the center of each block, for the outer border, and for the binding.


One more beauty shot!
