WIP Wednesday

I’ve been using up my Architextures fabric, bit by bit, in just about every project I’ve made this year, so I decided that I should finally make my Architextures quilt, before I use up all the fabric!

I designed this on Sunday:

Cut it out Monday:


And finished up the top on Tuesday:

The top measures 60″x 80″ and I used ALMOST every Architextures print. I am going to use the last two on the binding and back.  I don’t think I’ve ever loved a fabric line this much.  I am going to cry and observe a moment of silence when I use it all up.

I like to design the quilt first and decide how (and if) it can be made later. I’m often not even sure if my design will work, as I’m drawing it, but this one turned out to be super simple (though it doesn’t look it).  I’ll post a free pattern once I work out a few kinks!

Here was my original 3-color design, and I think that would make a pretty cool quilt, too!

  1. Such a fun pattern; i am looking forward to seeing what you name it. I love Architextures too and now you will always enjoy it in this quilt!! Great job!

  2. Wow. That is a pretty cool quilt. Just as modern and graphic as the fabric line, which is one of my favourites, too. At the moment I’m hoarding my stash of Architextures and use only small bits of it because I will be so sad when it’s all gone.

  3. I’m embarrassed to admit that I hadn’t come across the architextures range before, but they are beautiful. I love what you’ve done to showcase them – and really impressed at how quickly you made the quilt!

  4. Great quilt design! I like the way the lines turn and appear to overlap. There is a lot of motion and interest in you quilt:)

  5. Such a great pattern you created, and I am with you in the love of Architextures. It is the only line that I have 1/2 or more cuts of almost all of the fabrics.

  6. What a clever quilt, I can’t begin to work out how you did that. Those fabrics are so lovely and the quilt design really complements them. I am really looking forward to the tutorial to see how this is done.

  7. That is such a great quilt. It is so fun to see your process – and how your original design turned into the finished project.

  8. Love it! What do you use for your quilt designing? EQ7, excel, graph paper? LOL I love the way you’ve used just a general color scheme so what it looks like still ends up being a surprise.

  9. So cool! What made you miter some of the turns instead of straight? Just curious if it was design or another reason. Looks very nice like that. I would never have thought of that. It sure is great fabric:)

  10. I watched you put this together on IG last week (when I was on vacation) and I am floored! You moved quick on this one. What an incredible project, and a very worthy use of Architextures. You’re inspiring me to push myself to do a little more of my own quilt designing.
