Last month, on our family trip to Squaw Valley, I had a great time taking some quilty photos with their gorgeous Alpine Meadow as my backdrop. I’m happy to finally be able to debut my third photo subject from that trip, the Argyle Quilt:
My sample was made from Connecting Thread’s super fun Christmas Glitz and it finishes at 72″ x 72″. The fabulous long arm quilting was done by Darby of the Quilted Squid – I’ve had my eye on this super-fun wishbone pantograph for awhile and this was the perfect quilt to give it a try. Love, love, love how it turned out!
I think that my favorite thing about this quilt was how quickly it went together. All of the blocks were strip pieced and the seams are cleverly pressed so that they all nest together perfectly – AND the corner and setting blocks are just full-sized blocks that were trimmed down right before attaching the borders. I pieced the quilt top while my sewing studio was still temporarily in our dining room, and even with the little hooligans under foot, still managed to put the whole thing together in the span of a weekend!
If you’re interested in making your own version of our Argyle Quilt, we now have the .pdf pattern available on Craftsy, and I currently have a few kits available in our etsy shop, featuring prints from Sandy Gervais’s Very Merry line for Moda.
A special thank you goes out to my awesome pattern tester, Joanne! You can check out her fun and festive version below!
