Blithe Quilt - AGF Stitched

Today I am excited to be sharing another AGF Stitched quilt, This one is called Blithe and it just makes me so happy for spring  ;)  When the Fat Quarter Shop asked me if I wanted to help them with the first 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. 


For my Blithe quilt, I decided to use Pat Bravo's amazing Artisan line.  I love the bold rich colors and how they just pop in the fun geometric random design. This was sort of a new to me palette of colors in quilting and I really enjoyed sewing with it.    I especially love the mustard's and the navy's.  I can see more quilts in these colors in my near quilting future ;)


When it came time to quilt mine, I decided I didn't want to take away from any of those wonderful angles, so I added even more angels.  I did one of my favorite all over quilting designs.  I call it fireworks and it is oh so much fun to quilt.  .  I think it is the perfect compliment to this super cool design.

And  it makes some super yummy texture.  I just want to keep running my fingers over the quilt top.     This quilt is so much fun to make and has such great movement.


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






And that is my Blithe Quilt ;)   And  it has already been a special gift for our neighbors daughters wedding and I am happy to report that they just loved it ;)  Yippee!!! You can find the free pattern for the Blithe Quilt here .  And if you don't want to use Artisan, like I did, you can always do like Kimberly and make up her beautiful soft color palette.   You can find the original Blithe quilt kit here, it is so pretty in Chalk and Paint.

And that is all for today ;)  Thanks for popping in and I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
