Beautiful Baubles Quilt

  • by

I really wanted to give my Geode Dye + Quilt Pattern Collection a lot of versatility so I included two very different looking pieced tops.

I played around with a lot of different versions before I settled on this design for my second quilt.

This more modern design reminded me of beaded jewelry, inspiring the name Beautiful Baubles. I really just thought it looked like a gorgeous bracelet softly clicking around on some lovely ladies wrist while she went about her day.

It took a little bit of problem solving to get these corners to work out, but once I figured out you can modify the stitch and flip method for rectangles, it all worked out. I’m just glad there was a solution because I hated the way these blocks looked with half square triangle corners.

These blocks are extra large, using up nearly the entire fat quarter. The fabric is the star so I wanted to leave as much of it as possible intact. Sometimes you need a quilt pattern that just really lets the fabric shine.

Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting quilted this with a simple but effective design that really complimented the curves of the geode.

I just really love the way all these colors work together!

If you remember the quilt backing fiasco from my Dazzling Dreams quilt you know I have a few extra hand dyed backings laying around waiting to be used. Well, I was fortunate enough that one of them was just big enough to use as the backing on this quilt! Yay for finding it a suitable use!

This pattern collection is available in my store now! And if you love the fabric but don’t want to dye it yourself, you can check to see what I have available for purchase here. Not enough of the color you want in stock? I have limited availability to custom dye a batch just for you.
