A Valentine’s Jubilee Quilt from Villa Rosa Designs

I recently got in a fat quarter bundle from Fat Quarter Shop called “From the Heart” by Sandy Gervais for Riley Blake Designs.

I went digging for a pattern to make up this lovely fabric and found Jubilee from Villa Rosa Designs that takes 10 fat quarters and 1/2 yd for binding.

This pattern was very easy to make since it didn’t have any diagonal seams or finicky star points. It was cut in an hour and sewn that afternoon.  I think Blue approves.  Doesn’t she look thrilled?

I did have to use 11 FQs instead of 10 to get the red and white rows to work out properly (I needed an extra red FQ for the 3rd row). If I hadn’t of been making a two-color quilt, the 10 FQs would have worked out fine.

I used the remaining FQs to make a scrappy binding.

I ordered additional yardage from the line from the FQS for the backing and sewed my label into the binding.

I used a quilting pattern from Urban Elementz called Loopy Hearts to quilt it on my longarm.

I’m just so pleased at how this turned out! What a sweet, happy quilt!

Happy Valentine’s Day my friends!!

Villa Rosa Designs “Peace” Pattern Quilt Top Finish

I was in Ganado, Texas at Two Chicks Quilting and found the most lovely Sunny Side Up fabric by Corey Yoder for Moda, and thought that the Villa Rosa Designs Peace pattern would be perfect for it.

It’s a simple square-in-a-square design with lattice (sashing) in between the rows. Blocks are made up of 4 square-in-a-square sets.

I used a Jelly Roll and yardage for the yellow centers and 4″ outer border.

The pattern calls for 42 2.5″ strips which is exactly what was in the Jelly Roll. Two of the strips wouldn’t work: a yellow that matched the center and a white-on-white that wouldn’t work with the lattice. So by removing those two strips, I had to alter the block count. I figured I could have either just dropped a whole row of blocks, but I thought it would be more interesting to make a single row of blocks of two at the top and bottom. I love how it turned out!

The backing and binding are on the way! Can’t wait to get this on the longarm. 🙂
