Summer Pop Quilt Pattern - Ideas & Inspiration

If you haven't heard by now, Summer Pop quilt pattern is now available!! 

This is a short and sweet blog post to help get your creative wheels turning! Elizabeth of @elizabethboltenstudio created all of these mock-ups for us and and I really love each of them! If you already own the Summer Pop PDF, these mock-ups are all conviently listed within the pattern. The Paper version of Summer Pop has most of these listed, but not all. And if you don't already own the pattern yet, you'll be seeing these for the first time! :) Let's take a look!

First up, we have fabrics from Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman. It's a little hard to envision Summer Pop with prints but I've found that abstract motifs, or designs like strips, dots, or some sort of small repeating theme....work really well! Exhibit A: 

.

Next up is the "Holiday" pop that would be so cute for a July 4th celebration! The solids are Kona by Robert Kaufman.

This next one is one of my favorites....for obvious reasons. It uses fabrics from my Palette Picks bundle with Robert Kaufman! You can read about that bundle in this blog post. If the Caramel background isn't your speed, I recommend something like Kona Snow or if you want to go dark...Gotham Grey.

If you're looking for a super fun and bright Summer Pop quilt, this one using Rashida Coleman Hale's Speckled fabrics is SO pretty. I'm calling it "Tropical Pop" because it gives me all the tropical, fruity vibes.

If you're looking to make a Bed size quilt you can grab the Fisherman's Bend Coordinates FQ bundle by Violet Craft for Robert Kaufman. It makes the most beautiful muted rainbow quilt!

Summer Pop includes two different "BONUS" sections and the first explains how to create a multi-color background like THIS. To do this, you'll replace the Background yardage with fat quarters. You need 6 FQs for the Crib size, 10 for the Throw and 19 for the Bed size. For this method, you need the entire 18" x 21" of your FQ. If you would like more wiggle room then you'll need a few more fat quarters. Take a peak at page 7 of the pattern and you'll see more instructions for this method! This is actually what I'll be doing for the Summer Pop QAL starting in a few weeks. We have kits available for Preorder in our shop! They should ship in about a week or so! All fabrics are Kona solids by Robert Kaufman.

There's also a bonus section that explains how to create layered popsicles like this "Firecracker" pop. :)

Happy sewing!
