Palisades Quilt - AGF Stitched


Today I am excited to share another AGF Stitched pattern with you.  This is a collaboration between The Fat Quarter Shop and Art Gallery Fabrics to create a really great free pattern.  I love how many different directions this quilt could go - it is great for solids, larger scale prints, or anything in between.

I decided to use mostly Katarina Roccella's Pandalicious collection for my quilt.  This collection uses some great blues and greens and bluish greens and has the most adorable panda print.

I had to use the pandas for the center square.  And for the back.

I am a big believer that quilts have a healing and comforting ability.  But I can't imagine many things more comforting than a quilt backed in adorable pandas.

So. Many. Pandas.  I quilted it with an all over/organic cross hatch (my favorite).

Like the previous AGF Stitched patterns, this one is free and there is a video tutorial.  So if you are a fairly new quilter and are a little unsure, Kimberly will walk you through the process.  

Deciding on fabrics for this quilt took me forever because, well, I love fabric and wish I could choose all of them.  Since I drafted out several options in EQ7, I thought I'd share those with you.

First I had red/pink/orange/yellow version.
Then I had the version using mostly Maureen Cracknell's Nightfall collection.
And then I had the version using AGF Denim.
In the end the pandas won out.

  3. This looks like a great pattern that looks great in a lot of different colorways. Your quilt looks terrific - it looks like it has the same collection that Kimberly used but yours has more zing to it.
