today i get to share with you one of my all time favorite quilts. it’s called alation which means ‘the state of being winged’, which goes perfectly with my new fabric collection, winged for art gallery fabrics!
note: we’re working on kitting this quilt with pre-cut squares. stay tuned!
i had SO MUCH FUN designing this quilt. i wanted something feminine, unique and whimsical and i’m so happy with the outcome! my mom, maxie makes, and i collaborate on all of our patterns- i design and illustrate, and she sews. so, this is her beautiful work!
to construct the quilt, we used fusible grid interfacing (we recommend using bosal’s 2.5″ fusible interfacing) which makes this go together quickly and easily! just place your squares on the grid and iron them in place. then, all you have to do is zip up and down to secure your seams. we didn’t use a single pin. easy peasy!
quick note: i stumbled across this giant pom pom trim at a local thrift store a few months ago (don’t hate me!). it was pretty much the best day ever.
you can choose to make the quilt in either the northern migration colorway or the southern migration colorway (instructions included for both). i had a hard time deciding, but we chose to make it in the northern migration. i think this colorway is so soft and dreamy!
