My "Mayfair" Church Window Quilt

It's my stop on the Blog Hop for Amy Sinibaldi's new fabric collection, Mayfair! Be sure to read until the end...I'll have a list of everyone that is participating! You don't want to miss all of their beautiful creations!

Ya'll know that I'm a huge fan of Amy Sinibaldi's work! She is a designer for Art Gallery Fabrics and I think it's safe to say that I've made something using almost all of her fabric collections! The colors, the designs, everything is just so perfect and versatile. When I got a glimpse of her newest collection at the Fall Quilt Market in Houston a few months ago, I was once again smitten. (shocker, right?)

I absolutely love these rich shades of plum and pink, paired with the bright yellow/green contrast. Not to mention, the florals are so whimsical and quant. I personally think that these fabrics would make gorgeous garments! If only I could sew clothing...one day! :)

If you've never sewn with Art Gallery Fabrics before, you're missing out, my friend! They are so soft and silky. Once they're sewn and quilted into a quilt, it really makes for a gorgeous finish!

Since Art Gallery just started offering collections as Fat Quarters (18" x 21" cuts), I had to take advantage of it! They're called Fabric Wonders, and I really hope that they start to do this for all of their collections. It's such a convenience!

When I was deciding what I wanted to make I knew that I wanted minimal seams so that I didn't interrupt Amy's beautiful work. What better quilt to use than my Church Window quilt pattern?

I decided to lighten up the collection a little and use a white sashing (it's an Art Gallery solids..."Snow"). You'll notice that my quilt is a little in between sizes. In the pattern, a Baby size (38" x 39") calls for 8 FQs and the Throw size (53" x 62.5") calls for 18 FQs. I wanted to use 10 FQs from the collection, so I decided to make an "in-between" size. The width is the same, but the height is 49". It makes an excellent crib size quilt! I added an extra row of trapezoids at the top of my quilt. Each FQ got it's only little "hexagon" shape, so it worked out nicely!

This pattern is such a good way to display large cuts of fabric. I've used it so many times and it has such a different effect each time! If you remember, a few months ago, I make a Church Window quilt using the Kona 2020 Color of the Year, Enchanted. You can read about that here.

I decided to send this quilt off to my friend, Sarah of Stitch Mode Quilts. I told her that I wanted some sort of "Art Deco" design that had a little bit of curve to it. We can up with this design and I think it fits perfectly!

Oh, and if you didn't know, Sarah offers 20% off her edge to edge quilting services for all first time customers! She truly does a beautiful job and I could recommend her enough!
