A Summer Harlequin Quilt : :

A Summer Harlequin Quilt - QAYG

Happy Monday! Today I have another newly finished quilt as you go quilt to share, my Summer Harlequin Quilt! This one started back at the end of July, when my friend April Rhodes sent me a gorgeous bundle of her newest collection, Bound for Art Gallery Fabrics. The addition of Pure Element solids made this collection so perfect for late Summer sewing. Just look how pretty!

I wasted no time turning my bundle into a quick QAYG quilt top, a simple pattern of Windmill and Four-patch blocks. These traditional quilt blocks became modern, combining my quilt as you go using batting as foundation with these beautiful fabrics, turned on point!

The bold diamond design had me thinking of a Harlequin pattern with a twist, and so, I named this one my Summer Harlequin Quilt!

To finish I chose Bound Survey Ochre as my backing, a warm sunset yellow, using the qayg quilt backing technique I share in my Craftsy class!

For the quilting and binding I kept it all April Rhodes' using coordinating threads from her Aurifil thread collection and more Bound, Homebody stripe.

I love how this quilt turned out! The pattern is one I will absolutely be making again!

I wish you all a wonderful start to your week! ♡ Maureen
