Vignette Quilt

A couple months ago I received a fun package from Laura Gunn of her new fabric line, Vignette. This line has several large scale prints which threw me a bit. I don't often work with large scale prints, and I didn't want to cut them too small to lose the designs. I finally opted to upsize a single block. This simple HST block, LynneBobSquarePants, from Lily's Quilts was perfect!

I made the blocks as large as possible with the fabric I had. These blocks are 9" finished. The competed quilt is 54" square.

I used the leftover fabric on the back in what has become a very standard back for my quilts. I love using up the excess fabric and find this a simple, quick pattern to effectively use it.

I quilted it in a simple loopy design.

  2. Looks great! I love Laura Gunn's fabrics, but the large scales can be limiting. You've used them quite effectively.

  3. Beautiful! I love supersized quilt blocks! My mom recently made a quilt out of Laura's fabrics for my brother's wedding and while her front was very different from your quilt, she had the same pieced back. Great minds think alike. :)

  6. Very pretty fabric line. I love half square triangles too. Pieced backs are the way to go. It's helping me rid my shelves of older fabrics too.
