Divided Quilt Pattern Release

I am pleased to release my Divided quilt pattern today! It is made with one simple, machine appliqued, orange peel block and finishes at 52" x 70", perfect for snuggling on the couch with a good book or movie.

This design was inspired by the shirt a man wore to church one Sunday morning, which proves that quilting inspiration really is everywhere!

I had a lot of fun making this quilt, even though I made it in only 9 days while also working full time. The power of deadlines, lol 😊 I made it with Me + You fabrics from their Indah batiks and solids and I really love the feel of the fabrics. Plus, since it's lightly quilted (that deadline was looming!), it stayed super soft and drapey.

Divided was first published in Quilty magazine and the editors wanted to see it with different colours for the stripe, so I thought I'd share them here too. I have to admit, I wasn't sold on the black when that was what they chose. I thought it looked a little bland without the pop of a bright colour in the stripe. In the end, though, I really love the elegant look of the black 😊

You can get your copy of Divided in my Payhip shop or my Etsy shop.

Tell me, what colours would you use for the quilt? Would you go with a bright, contrasting, pop of colour for the stripe?

  1. Congratulations on the pattern release! I know what you mean about not necessarily being in love with the colorway a magazine selects, but it can definitely grow on you over time. And quilt inspiration is everywhere for sure. :)

  2. Congratulations. I would have chosen pop of colour, but with the other colours you used, I think the black works best. Well done.

  5. Congrats! This is a great design and full of color possibilities! I would for sure add a bright pop of color to that strip...maybe even give it an ombre or rainbow treatment!

  8. What a lovely pattern!! I've got to say that as much as I love bold color... I have to got with the editors on this one. The classic look of the black stripe fits the pattern perfectly!
