Planview {Completed Quilt}

Quilting the white background for Planview honestly went quicker than I had anticipated, and so I’m really happy to get to share the finished quilt with you today!

Planview – Backing

I am smitten with the Hatching Leaf (lime) print which is also the backing for the quilt. I think it absolutely glows! And speaking of smitten, I just love how the quilting texture shines when viewed from the back of the quilt, too!

Planview will be the pattern for my 2022 quilt along. I wanted to submit Planview for the jury to consider for the upcoming QuiltCon to be held in Phoenix in February 2022, so the quilt is finished a bit early due to the QuiltCon submission deadline being October 31st this year. Signups for the quilt along will open in November, and the dates for the quilt along are listed below.

Planview

Planview

Planview finished at 60″ wide by 72″ tall after quilting, trimming, and binding. After the quilting was complete and prior to trimming the quilt so I could sew on the binding, I spent about a half hour giving the quilt a “hot blocking” treatment. Normally to block a quilt, a quilt is washed or at least made pretty wet, stretched square, and allowed to dry. Due to the high humidity we are currently experiencing (these photos were taken quickly between rain showers), I opted to go a slightly different route for this quilt. I used my long 6″ x 24″ ruler and my iron and was able to get the quilt to lay nice and flat with the seams running long and straight. I was then able to use my two way laser level to trim the quilt nice and square.

Planview Quilt Along FAQs

Q: What is the complexity level?
A: The pattern is written at a confident beginner level, and the pattern is appropriate for that skill level and above. There will be no bias edges.

Q: Will there be quilt kits offered?
A: I am working with Sewtopia on several Kona Cotton kits. At the moment I am still looking for a shop that carries these exact Northcott Fabrics prints.

Q: What size options will be offered?
A: You will have 6 sizes to choose from: Wall (30″ x 36″), Baby (40″ x 48″), Lap (60″ x 72″ shown here), Twin (80″ x 96″), Queen (90″ x 108″), or King (100″ x 120″)

If you have additional questions, please leave a comment or send me an email. I’ll be making a baby size during the quilt along and I’d love to have you join me!

Linking up with Finished or Not Friday and Beauties Pageant 147.

    I love this. And will be happy to join your “quilt along” (switch out the white for a gray, the green for navy blue, and you’re coming close to Seahawk colors). 🙂

  2. This is just stunning, Yvonne. The design with the quilting is so crisp and clean, and the backing fabric is amazing – I love how it highlights the quilting. It almost makes the quilt reversible, though I’d hate to cover up that design. Nice finish!

    Your work is AMAZING!!! 🙂

  4. Stunning! The quilting absolutely makes it sing.

  5. patty says:

    Lovely! I too enjoy seeing all the quilting goodness on the back of the quilt!

  6. This is gorgeous and that quilting design worked out perfectly! I rather love the bright greens in this – not something I am usually drawn towards but in this quilt they are perfect.

  7. Rochelle Summers says:

    Such a beautiful quilt. I loved seeing the quilting progress. I love the bright colors and the back of the quilt is as beautiful as the front. I’ll be stitching along with you on this quilt. Now to figure out a color way that I haven’t used before!

  8. yoyopattycakeshotmailcom says:

    Your quilt is wonderful! I love the colors, design, and your beautiful and careful quilting! It’s all stunning. Good luck at QuiltCon!

  9. Stunning finish! The quilting is really spectacular. I agree that green you used for the backing is very lovable. Congrats! Good luck with the quilt con submission.

  10. Julie says:

    It’s a beautiful color choice. Good luck with your submission, the cool clean lines are striking.

    I liked your comment about dealing with humidity. I don’t have air conditioning & struggle with high humidity in summer. Walking foot quilting can be challenging & FMQ is near to impossible as the machine skips over the soggy sandwich.

  11. Debbie says:

    This turned out beautifully, Yvonne! The colors are absolutely terrific, including that glowing lime(!), but your quilting really makes it.

  12. That is so cool!! the quilting on it is fantastic and really adds to the whole design!!

  13. Kaja says:

    This is beautiful. There is something really fresh and vibrant about the whole quilt.

  14. Cyndi Kuhn says:

    I am interested in signed u for the quilt along, but not seeing exactly how to do that.

    1. Thank you so much. Signups for the quilt along will open on November 15th, so if you follow along with my blog or social media accounts, you’ll get all the information you need in time to get started.

  15. Nikki says:

    Yvonne I love your aesthetic! Clean, fresh and geometrically interesting. Still, every time I think about one of your sew alongs, I wonder “would that work with prints? Basically, I’m trying to think about your design and fabric for my stash at the same time. Yes, I know you offer kits, but I want to sew from my stash, and for some reason I’ve collected a lot of florals, batiks and other sorts of prints. It would seem that while I love your quilts, the fabric I love is very different. Any advice would be most welcome.

    1. I think this design in particular could be lovely with prints. My suggestion for this particular design would be that you will need 5 fabrics plus a contrasting background. If you like the way the 5 fabrics look together, I think you’ll be happy with the outcome of the quilt. Once the QAL kicks off on November 15th, if you join the QAL and have questions, you can share photos of the fabrics you are considering (fabric selection information goes out on December 1st) in the Quilting Jetgirl Facebook group and I can take a look and discuss options with you there. Depending on the size quilt you choose to make, the scale of the prints you want to consider will change and I will be discussing that and other tips in the QAL.

  16. Gorgeous finish, Yvonne. Knowing that you work mostly in solids, it is refreshing to see you crush on prints 🙂 The quilting is exquisite. And the lime green quilt back in a bright verdant backyard is just so picture-perfect.

  17. great job! thank you for the process!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
