Chopsticks Quilt

Here's my Chopsticks quilt all done! It's a great pattern designed by my friend Julie, and I highly recommend it. I made this quilt as a sample because I'm teaching it as a class next month at my work, and I'm absolutely in love with it!

I used Liz Scott's Sugar Pop, and paired it with Kona Medium Grey. I wasn't purposely choosing colours that were very spring, but it's a happy coincidence!

My boss / long armer Laura did a beautiful job of quilting it! I wasn't too sure how to approach it so I left it in her capable hands, and I'm just beyond thrilled. So simple, yet so inspired. LOVE!!!

The binding was a tone on tone from the same collection that I thought framed everything so nicely.

I cannot recommend this pattern enough. If you're a fan of 60° triangles like me, and want to try something else with your ruler, this is perfect. I'm definitely going to use this one again :)

Love the quilt- I love that you paired it with the Kona grey- very pretty! And I must say- I am soo jealous of you!! I would love to work in a quilt store- I have nothing close to me at all. How much fun would that have to be!! Have a great weekend!:)

Your quilt turned out amazing. I had already ordered the Chopsticks pattern after seeing your blocks from an earlier post, and now can't wait to make one! I'm going to use Heather Bailey's Freshcut collection which is also very spring-like. Love your blog!

I love it!! It is so pretty. And I love triangles. I should try this out (add it to my forever long list)!

It's embarrassing how long it's been since I visited your blog. Having too much fun looking at your cats on IG and playing draw something!

thanks for linking up friend!

Cindy W. Aus,
Came here Because Jane had it on her FB page, but also just looked at it and faved it on Flickr from a link from Jane. Looks fantastic in your colourway. Job well done.
Love how you quilted it too. Thanks for sharing.

Love it! Gorgeous!

Wow, the colors you picked are gorgeous. I've been wanting to make this quilt since Julie first published it. I looked at where you are teaching and it's a bit too far. It would be fun to make this with a group :)

Kari said...

Gorgeous! The fabrics are perfect. Look how great your corners match up, too. Did you pin a lot to get that precise or is it pretty easy with the pattern + ruler? I was just give the creative grids 60° triangle ruler and now I want to pick up that pattern. I was given 3 of her other patterns with the lazy angle ruler, too. (Hooray for birthdays!) I'm going to do Hugs & Kisses in the oranges/purple/mauve Hope Valley, as soon as I finish up a couple other things.

It's fantastic Audrie. I am currently working with a 60 degree ruler too : )
