Perspective Quilt Pattern Release

I am really thrilled to release the PDF pattern for the Perspective Quilt (better known as the Quilt for Zoe) today! The pattern has instructions to create the quilt in three sizes: baby (42″ x 52″), lap (63″ x 78″), and queen (84″ x 104″).

Perspective is an exploration of an off-grid, modern quilt design that uses transparency to create depth in overlapping shapes. There are planning tools within the pattern to help you track your fabric selections (or details for you to re-create the fabric selections I made).

Note that there are a lot of different fabrics and pieces in this pattern and the key to successfully making the pattern is in keeping all of the fabrics and pieces organized throughout the construction of the quilt. The piecing itself is not hard but it does require attention; I needed to pull out my seam ripper on multiple occasions because I didn’t follow my own construction plan when I made the Quilt for Zoe.

Therefore, included in the pattern are a few tips for fabric piece organization as well as a coloring page to help you plan your quilt design and perhaps even audition quilting motifs. There is ample room to play with some fun quilting in the negative space. Straight line quilting to enhance and echo the pieced shapes would work beautifully, too.

Many thanks to Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs for her careful editorial review of the pattern and excellent suggestions to make this pattern more robust.

    This is such an interesting design. I think it would be fun to play with using just all one color (well not including the background) or maybe two primary colors. Congrats on this release! You were designing at the speed of light again 🙂
