Homecoming Quilt- My Peppered Cotton version & tester quilts!

Homecoming quilt pattern is finally available!

In case you missed it, I have a blog about my cover quilt using Art Gallery Fabrics here.

This pattern is so fun and versatile...I loved making this design over and over! I will say: I do mostly gravitate towards warm colors....peaches, pinks, golds. Gosh, those colors have my heart! Every once in a while, I try to be really intentional and try something new. It's hard....but I make it work! haha. 

When I saw Cottoneer's new Peppered Cottons, I was immediately struck with not only how gorgeous the colors are, but also how unique the texture is!

If you're new to Peppered Cottons, they are yarn dyed shot cottons, meaning that the warp and weft are two different colors. When they are woven together, they create a beautiful, unique mix of color. Ever since my Ombre Retro Ornaments quilt (which you can read about here), I've been slightly obsessed with using different textures in my quilt!. These were such a nice change of pace. I love how they are home-y and kind of vintage looking.

I chose Oyster as the Background, then Pepper, Rust, Seaglass and Peacock as my four colors.

For my backing, I used Backroads Umber by Bonnie Christine. ( I love this print!) And for my binding, I used Wondering with Doe by Bonnie Christine as well. This is such a good stripe.

I made a baby size, but Cottoneer will be kitting a Throw size! The kits are currently available for preorder.

This quilt would DEFINITELY not be possible without the help of my amazing pattern testers! Seriously, ya'll. I went through so many versions of this pattern. They stuck with me, though! And I'm so grateful for all of their help and encouragement. If you have the time, be sure to send them some love on Instagram! I"ll tag their handles with their pictures.
