Suburbs


This Suburbs quilt pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew was also on my list of quilts I wanted to make.  The reason I didn't include it on my earlier blog post is because the top is already completed!

Let me say I love this pattern!   It's so simple, and goes together really fast.  I'm pretty sure I'll be making another one of these sometime.

I went away from my usual zone and did an (almost) all solids quilt.  I think it gives it a beachy vibe that's perfect for a child.

I used a Kona Classic bundle from MadAboutPatchwork, then chose my favorite colors from this bundle.

I made the throw size, which  calls for 10 fat quarters or quarter yards to make the houses.  Here's a list of the colors I used from this bundle. 

Kona Cottons

Cyan
Lagoon
Bright Pink
Bright Periwinkle
Canary
Tangerine
Flame
Sour
Papaya
Eclectic Elements Subway Signs (the black with white letters)

For the sky, I used Kona Aqua (best sky color!), and the background was Kona Snow.

I've decided on a fun backing that will really finish off this quilt, so hopefully I'll be getting to that soon!

  16. Terrific Suburbs quilt! I would love designers to have a page (not Flickr) where any pics of that pattern made could see how wonderfully different the same pattern can look. Yours is delightfully different from my Suburbs and I can only imagine how beautiful is another commenter's Winter's Lane Suburb quilt.
    How fun! Great creation.
