How To’s Day: New Bohemian Quilt by Sarah Laws Made

October 27th, 2015 by Camelot Fabrics

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day. Have you entered our latest giveaway? We’re giving away a Little Bird FQB on our Facebook Page this week.

 

It’s How To’s Day time! Today we are featuring our New Bohemian Quilt by Sarah Laws Made. New Bohemian is a modern, geometric design of chevrons and triangles all working together to create a stunning quilt. It is also lap-sized, so it is perfect for cozy-ing up with for a night in with hot cocoa – stylish and comfy! Nothing is better than that ;) We chose to showcase our New Bohemian quilt in one of our latest collections, Jungly by Andrea Turk for Cinnamon Joe Studios. We love how fresh and vibrant the red-orange and spearmint colors look, with the adorable jungle animal prints.

1. Sew a 5-1/4” Fabric B square to a 5-1/4” Fabric F square around all (4) sides.

2. Cut the squares into (4) triangles as shown and open them up to make (4) HST units.
Repeat with the following pairs of 5-1/4” squares:
(Note: since each pair of 5-1/4” squares yields (4) HST units, you’ll sometimes have extra HSTs.)

(2x) Fabric B & Fabric F:                                        (5x) Fabric D & Fabric E:
(8) HST units.                                                         (20) HST units – (2) extra.

(7x) Fabric E & Fabric F:                                        (5x) Fabric E & Fabric C:

(3x) Fabric C & Fabric F:                                        (1x) Fabric E & Fabric A:
(12) HST units.                                                       (4) HST units.

(4x) Fabric B & Fabric E:                                        (3x) Fabric A & Fabric F:

3. Referring to the quilt illustration on Page 1, sew the HST units together in rows. The top &
bottom rows will have a 3-1/4” Fabric A square on each end.

4. Sew the rows together top-to-bottom to complete the quilt top.

 

FINISHING THE QUILT:

1. Join the (4) 2-1/2” Fabric G strips end-to-end for the binding.

2. Layer the Backing, batting & quilt front with the fabrics’ Right Sides facing out. Baste & quilt as desired, and bind with Fabric G.

    Is there a larger version of this quilt? Maybe I could just frame it with a couple of solid borders…hmmm?
