This quilt was commissioned by a woman I work with who loves purple and teal. I picked out the backing first – a stunning floral from Bari J’s Sage line for Art Gallery Fabrics, and built the rest of the color scheme from there. I pulled various purple, teal, yellow, and navy fabrics from my stash and just started cutting strips!
This was my first quilt using Moda Grunge as well, and I was so pleased with the visual texture it adds to the design. In my opinion, it’s also easy to work with than the crossweave I used in the original Wild Soul due to crossweave’s tendency to curl and fray on me.
It was so fun to make a quilt 100% from my stash – it’s kind of a collection of all my favorite fabrics rather than a curated pull. These blocks are so fun to make, and it’s a fast scrap buster.
It’s always hard to deliver client quilts, but I’ll be stashing another backing set of that beautiful floral. It even comes in voile! I’ve been dying to give it a try!
You can find the pattern for Wild Soul here – it’s jelly roll, fat quarter, fat eighth, and scrap friendly with cutting instructions for all four options. Because options are my favorite.
