Palisades Quilt

Today I am super excited to share another fun AGF Stitched with Kimberly Quilt!!!  It's called Palisades and I am so loving it!!!  Isn't that bold geographic design just so fabulous ;)  Eeekk!!!

If you haven't heard of AGF Stitched with Kimblery, here's the low down.  Each Quarter, Art Gallery Fabrics teams up with Kimberly from Fat Quarter Shop to come up with a new free quilt pattern design and then they make a wonderful You Tube Video on how to make it!!!   For this quarter, it's the Palisades Quilt and you can find the free Pattern link over at Fat Quarter Shop ;)  

And, you can watch the You Tube Video on how to make the Palisades Quilt in all of it's geometric goodness right here ;)  

Obviously, I changed my quilt up a bit, deciding to go with a very bold 3 color layout.   The fabrics I used were Pure Elements from Art Gallery in London Red, Snow, and Caviar.   I love that the solids really add to the bold geometric design of this quilt.  So fun!!

And because I was doing a basic 3 color layout, I was also able to change up the piecing a bit, simply making the same block 64 times ;)  It was super fast to just chain piece the blocks and the whole quilt came together in no time.  Isn't it just so cool that this is the same block, just rotated different ways to give such a wonderful design!!!

When it came time for quilting, I opted for another favorite, All over Echoed Paisleys.  (I actually made a video tutorial on how I do this quilting design some time back ;)  And  I decided to continue to go with the bold and use Cherry Red So Fine Thread.  I just love the way it pops on the black and the white.  The picture just doesn't do it justice of how bold it looks on the black as the sun tends to make it blend in.  But trust you me, it pops ;)

And as you can see, it really adds to the overall texture of the quilt ;)  I just love looking at the design from this angle.  Almost looks like the Card Trick layout :)  I just love all of those wonderful angels and the way the quilting just flows them all together!

And that is my Palisades Quilt ;)  I hope you love it just as much as I do.   And you might have guessed already by the 3 colors, that yes, this is going to be another donated quilt for my Alma Mater.  Homecoming is just a few months away and I think this quilt is going to be a big hit!!!

Be sure to Pop on over to Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber to get the free pattern so you can make your own Palisades Quilt ;)  And while you are popping around, be sure to also check out all of these awesome bloggers sharing their Palisades quilt as well.   It always blows me away how everyone's quilts look so different, even though they are all made from the same pattern ;)  Gotta love that about fabric!!!
