Reverie Quilt Top : :

Reverie Quilt Top

Reverie: a state of dreamy meditation or fanciful musing; a daydream.

After a busy Summer with very little quilt-making, along with the awaited release of Nightfall, that's exactly what creating this quilt was for me!

Reverie Quilt Top

One week ago I felt the overwhelming amount of tasks ahead of me as we entered upon the arrival of the new school year for the kids and the return of a regular work schedule for me. But rather than working my way down the ever-growing todo list, I indulged in the making of this quilt. It was exactly what I needed! A little gift to myself, creative, colorful bliss.

I had just designed this pattern, along with a few others,  to consider as one of the free pdf quilt pattern to couple with my next fabric collection due to release this January.  When we chose one of the other options, I swapped out those digital print swatches with Nightfall and several of Amy Sinibald's Playground fabrics, just to see how it might look, and I fell in love with the combination of these dreamy colors and prints!

Making HST's using the method for making eight at a time has become a favorite of mine, you may have noticed! For me, the process of creating using repetitive steps is like a deep meditation practice. With it comes a clearer mind, and more often than not, a release from my problems, worry, & stress, even if for just a little while. A refresh and refocus that feels so good.

HST Love!

Reverie Quilt Blocks

I plan to share that goodness in the form of a tutorial for making both these blocks & quilt top, so be sure to keep an eye out!

Finishing all fifty-six blocks and assembling the top took just a couple days sewing time, and by early Saturday evening my husband was helping me take these photos to share!

I should have the instructions finished and ready to share next week.  Until then, I'd love to know if you plan to make one for yourself!

  6. I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it . I also love your quilt on the front page of your Lookbook! That quilt is gorgeous. I have two of your lines coming with Magic. I will make both, just not sure which of the two patterns to use. I look forward to your pattern to help me!

  11. Maureen, yeah..you treated you and your created process! Reminds me of your "Lost Ship" block , that is the 8 HST's from one block. I saved that post and refer back to it often as HST's are not yet my cup of tea:( ..I am creative tho so no stress over that. Thankyou for sharing.

  12. The pattern caught my attention for the repeat in the colors and the addition of a square to HST to form a new type of 4 patch for me. I love the colors in Nightfall!
