birchen

I love working with Art Gallery fabrics as their cotton is a little bit thinner than your usual quilting cotton which makes for quilts with incredibly luxurious feel and gorgeous drape. So, when I was asked to be a part of AGF stitched with Kimberly series (a collaboration between AGF and Fat Quarter Shop) I was more than happy to say yes.


The idea was to make the Birchen quilt using our favorite AGF fabric. I chose the combination of beautiful Petal and Plume by Bari J. and two AGF solids, and I could not be happier with how this quilt turned out. 


I just adore navy and pink together these days. And you know what? Even all these HSTs were a breeze to make as I was sent a roll of HST paper triangles on a roll to use as well. I must admit, I was quite hesitant at first as I've never worked with triangles on a roll before. Once I gave it a try though I could not believe how super easy it was to make tons of perfectly precise, already trimmed HSTs in no time at all.


I used yet another lovely AGF print for the back of my quilt and quilted it using straight-ish lines about 3/4" - 1" apart. 


So, what do you say? Would you like to make Birchen quilt of your own? AGF and FQS have provided tons of free resources:

Also, Fat Quarter Shop is selling quilt kits if you're interested (click here).

Fun, isn't it? I hope you give this pattern a try. Svetlana
