Locket Quilt with AGF Stitched

Today I am excited to be sharing another AGF Stitched quilt, This one is called Locket  ;)  When the Fat Quarter Shop asked me if I wanted to help them with the last AGF Stitched quilt of the year I was all over it.  I absolutely love the graphic nature of the pattern with all of its awesome angles.  I knew it would be perfect for another Alma Mater quilt ;)


And so, I perused through Art Gallery's amazing fabric lines looking for the perfect Red, Black, and Whites.   Mostly I make a quilt from a single fabric line so this was a super fun change to pick bits and pieces from a range of lines.  I think I will be doing that more often for sure ;)   Just in case you are curious, here are the fabrics I choose ;)

For Fabrics A & B I used Your Heart Pure from Wonderland by Katrina Roccella
For Fabrics C I used Square Elements Pomegranate and Noir by In House Staff
For Fabrics D & E I used Beside Journal Candid from Happy Home by Caroline Hulse
For Fabrics F & I I used Confetti Noir from Minimalista by In House Staff
For Fabrics G & H I used Tire Buds Lumi from Cleta by In House Staff


And for the Binding I (fabrics J)   I used Your heart Timid from Wonderland by Katrina Rocella and for the Backing I used Delineament Sepia from Sketchbook by Sharon Holland.   I just love how all of these super fun prints from so many different lines go together so well and add to the awesome geometric design ;)  


 This quilt is so much fun to make and has such great movement.  I had fun doing two colors in the large triangles to give it a chain effect ;)  You know how I love chains in my quilts ;)  And the quilt goes together surprisingly fast as most of the piecing is stitch and flip or HST's, so fun!!!


And of course, Kimberly has made an awesome video tutorial that helps you along every step of the way making it go even quicker ;)




When it came time to quilt mine, I decided I didn't want to take away from any of those wonderful angles, so I just did straightish lines across the quilt.  I think it is the perfect compliment to this super cool design.


And you can't see the texture very well, but it is so super yummy.  I just want to keep running my fingers over the quilt top.  


And that is my Locket Quilt ;)  This particular quilt will be auctioned off for a Women's Athletic Fundraiser at my Alma Mater, SUU ;)  My niece is currently on the Cross Country Team there so it is fun to be able to support her with my love of quilting.     You can find the free pattern for Locket here .  And if you don't want to make a School Colored one, like I did, you can always do like Kimberly and make up her beautiful soft color palette.   You can find the original Locket  quilt kit here and the backing set for it here .

That's all for today ;)   I am off to unpack from a fabulous Holiday weekend spent with my family and just maybe I might get to squeeze in some sewing.  5 days away from my machine has got me itching to piece something together ;)

Have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

  3. This is beautiful and I think this would look great in Red, White, and Blue also. I plan to use Amy Butler fabric, for her boldness and because I have a huge bin of her fabrics!
