My Eliza Quilt

After I posted my pattern testers' quilts last week, I wanted to make a follow up post with a few more details about my own version of the Eliza Quilt.  I had so much fun making this pattern and I wanted a little more space to talk about it.

The idea for this quilt came from my Betty Quilt pattern. I wanted to do something along the same lines (but a little bit different) because I really enjoyed how well it highlighted the fabrics and how easy it was to put together.

My color inspiration for the quilt came from the Martha Negley feathers print that I have been hoarding for a while.  I adore the print and it has such amazing blues and greens and teals.

After I picked the initial focal fabric, I picked several coordinating fabrics from my stash.  My favorite designers for coordinating fabrics are Carolyn Friedlander, Denyse Schmidt, Lotta Jansdotter, Cotton + Steel Basics, and Lizzy House and I used almost all of them in this quilt.  This is definitely not an all-inclusive list, but I have found that they all make beautiful fabrics that work well with other collections and they are the designers that I buy most frequently.  

Thank you to those who have purchased the pattern, I can't wait to see what everyone makes!  If you make your own version, I would love it if you could use the hashtag #theelizaquilt and/or #kitchentablequilting on Instagram so I check it out!
