Quilt Pattern

Cloudy Night Sky {Pattern Release}

I have been eager to make Cloudy Night Sky since I created the design and quilting plan about a year and a half ago. Now that the quilt is finally made, I am very happy to also release the Cloudy Night Sky digital pattern so that you can create you own version!

Fabrics & Materials

Cloudy Night Sky - Fabric (Kona Nightfall and Kona Snow) and Thread (50wt Aurifil 2311 and 2785)

Cloudy Night Sky – Fabric and Thread

Cloudy Night Sky is a two color quilt, and I used Kona Cotton solids in Nightfall and Snow. I paired the solids with matching 50wt Aurifil thread in 2785 (Very Dark Navy) and 2311 (Muslin).

I have a blog post about my piecing thread selection. Note that if I were making the quilt for my own personal enjoyment (instead of as a show quilt), I would have used a gray thread like Dove (or perhaps a shade darker) for the piecing.

Cloudy Night Sky – Quilting Plan

Because the quilting plan for Cloudy Night Sky was so integral to my design, I included details (and templates) on how I marked and quilted the cover quilt. I know that “quilt as desired” sounds super scary, so if you aren’t interested in recreating what I did for the quilting, I imagine making the white look like puffy clouds with some free motion quilting of echoing bumps and the dark night sky having a combination of free motion quilted stars, loops, and lines would look great. The pattern includes a coloring page for you to doodle out ideas, and I also offer the coloring pages as digital downloads for you to use in your favorite apps as well.

Cloudy Night Sky Pattern Details

Cloudy Night Sky is a confident beginner (baby and throw) to intermediate level (wall) modern quilt pattern that uses negative space to create a dynamic composition. The two color design is offered in three sizes: wall (4″ finished curves), baby (5″ finished curves), and throw (6″ finished curves).

    Congrats on the new pattern. I like the idea of quilting stars in the dark navy side, it would give the quilt a completely different look.
