More on S’mores

I want to share this beautiful picture in APQ, the ‘beauty’ shot of the S’mores quilt.

Beautiful setting featuring the S’mores quilt, photography by APQ magazine.

 

WOW, is the best word I can come up with.  Makes me want to go out and buy a camel colored chair, make a rust pillow, or maybe buy one, then artfully drape the quilt.  Guess who would be in the middle of the quilt?  Chloe!

My reality is that I plan to hang it on the wall in the den when I watch (actually listen) to TV while I stitch.  Maybe I’ll spend more time in there?  Looking forward to the quilt returning home, especially since I have a place for it!

I’ve heard many are starting this quilt, I’m flattered, but I know you will love it when you are done.  I selected the sashing fabric first, then a stack of fabrics was selected to make the blocks, we cut out quite a few block sets, then rearranged the sets to use three fabrics instead of two fabrics.  As the block making progressed, we cut more pieces and fussy cut stripes to add sparkle. As the blocks were made, they were placed (pinned) on the design wall atop the sashing fabric to see how the quilt project was ‘reading’.   Was a very fun journey, as I do love playing with fabric.   I’m sure you will enjoy yours when done!

  1. Hi can you give the pattern number for the binding. You have previously posted the sashing pattern number and I have been lucky enough to find it at my local quilt shop in Arkansas ! Yeah – now on a hunt for the binding. Thanks

  2. Oh yes! I have started on it. Cutting out the fabrics and am working on this over the holidays! Such a gorgeous bunch of fabrics in it…who could resist?! I just LOVE this quilt!

    It is quite nice looking on that chair !!

    Merry Christmas!

  3. I have not started mine yet, hope to maybe next weekend. Right now my cutting table is covered with wrapping stuff, it is not only the right hight for cutting but the right hight for wrapping gifts too. With that job finishing up, I can start sewing again.

    Merry Christmas Jo & Russ

  4. I absolutely love this quilt, Jo, and can hardly wait to start it. Thanks for posting this photo. It really shows off the simplicity of the quilting itself. What a great scrappy look!
