3 Festive Cattails And Clover Fall Quilts

Cattails & Clover Quilt Fabrics

It’s almost fall! The fabric line Cattails & Clover includes a variety of fall quilt fabrics with elegant fall colors and simple fall designs. The quilt fabrics were designed by Kansas Trouble Quilters for Moda, and include dot, floral, leaf, prairie grass and patterns.  The colors represent the true beauty of fall, and include deep chocolate brown, subtle burnt orange, tasteful burgundy red, subdued gold, neutral tan, and a beautiful evergreen shade of green.

Cattails & Clover Four Patch Fall Quilt

The first quilt is a modified four patch quilt with alternating gold and green fabrics for the background. The red and orange diamond shape in the center of the block helps add depth and a sense of overlapping colors. The darker red fabric over the green appears to create a blending effect. The orange and gold fabrics have a similar appearance; however, the colors contrast less. This use of fabrics and colors creates a three dimensional effect where the center diamonds appear to protrude from the background. The border is a checkered border made from four of the Cattails & Clover quilt fabrics.

Cattails & Clover Strips and Squares Fall Quilt

The next quilt utilizes several of the same Cattails & Clover quilt fabrics in a different design. As the name suggests, the quilt is comprised of a fabric strip sewn onto two fabric squares in a unique and alternating pattern. The center block consists of four square blocks sewn together, and provides an excellent anchor for the quilt block. The orange and green Prairie Grass fabrics used in the quilt blocks make up the borders.

Cattails & Clover Holiday Quilt

The final quilt uses two of the Cattails & Clover quilt fabrics from the prior quilts, and adds a third tan fabric. Such a simple change to the fabric palette has a drastic effect on the quilt’s appearance. The last quilt is holiday themed. This quilt demonstrates the versatility and adaptability of the Cattails & Clover fabric line. For the holiday quilt, the border fabrics are the same fabrics used throughout the rest of the quilt.

How To Change Up Your Quilt

How to Change the Appearance of a Quilt

Have you ever wanted to use a quilt pattern again, but wanted to alter the design to create a new appearance?  Here we have four awesome ideas to reuse a quilt pattern to create a unique new quilt. To demonstrate how subtle difference drastically change the appearance of a quilt, I created several versions of a quilt using various Border Blast Southern Skies quilt fabrics. The original quilt consists of identical quilt block placed side by side in three rows and three columns. There are two borders around the outside of the quilt using the same quilt fabric found in the quilt.  The result is a beautiful, uniform quilt with elegant designs.

Border Blast Original Quilt

Add A Border Around Quilt Blocks

The first variation of the Border Blast Southern Skies incorporates a 1 1/2 inch border of the Border Blasts Southern Skies Stars fabric between the quilt blocks.  The block border fabric is the same fabric used on the inner border of the quilt.  Adding the border around the quilt blocks creates a window effect and changes the appearance of the quilt slightly.  This option helps separate the quilt blocks enough to highlight different patterns, change the flow of the quilt, or add depth to the quilt.

Border Blast Quilt With Block Border

Add or Remove Quilt Fabrics in Adjacent Quilt Blocks

The next variation uses less detailed quilt blocks to change the appearance of the quilt.  Compare the quilt blocks to the original quilt and the quilt with borders around the blocks.  It is apparent that the three quilt are different.  What changed?  I removed four, two inch square blocks of the Border Blast Southern Skies Apples fabric from each quilt block.  The result is a brighter quilt with three dimensional designs.  The overall design is similar to the prior quilts; however, removing a few pieces of fabric creates a new and unique quilt.

Border Blast Quilt Less Detail

Alternate Detailed Quilt Blocks with Simple Quilt Blocks

Another option is to create a simple quilt block to alternate with the detailed quilt block.  For this quilt, I began with the block from the original quilt.  This block consists of four Border Blast Southern Skies quilt fabrics.  Instead of creating the quilt with three rows and three columns of the same quilt blocks, I added a different, less detailed block using three of the quilt fabrics from the original quilt block.  The simple blocks alternate throughout the quilt so each detailed block is adjacent to a simple block.

Border Blast Quilt Simple Block

Use Different Fabrics and Colors Throughout the Quilt

The final method to alter the design of your quilts includes color and fabric changes.  It is amazing how different a quilt appears by changing the color of the border or adding a new color throughout the quilt.  The changes can be drastic or subtle depending on personal preference.  Here we demonstrate a few color and fabric changes with the same quilt designs used above.

Coral Shades Apart Quilt

The second Shades Apart quilt is quite striking.  The warm color scheme is inviting and calming.  This quilt would make a great accent piece.  For example, a beach house table topper or a lap quilt for a neutral colored room.  The quilt consists of four fabrics:

 

Neutral Shades Apart Quilt

The next Shades Apart quilt is straightforward and simple.  In essence, the quilt involves sewing three rectangular pieces of fabric together to create a fabric square with three colors.  The color sequences is tan, brown, dark green.  Rotate the squares to create the windmill appearance.  Then sew four of those fabric squares together to create the larger rectangle strips. Sew four of the larger rectangles together, and you have a quilt block.  Only 15 more quilt blocks to go, as you need 16 total quilt blocks to complete this quilt.  The quilt consists of three fabrics:

The fourth Shades Apart quilt is sweet and fun.  The focal point of the main block is a checkerboard pattern of alternating white and purple quilt fabrics. The checkerboard is surrounded by a pink and red boarder, and a two-toned purple background.  In between the quilt blocks are small pinwheels and boxes that stand out from the rest of the quilt. The quilt consists of six fabrics:

 

Purple Plaid Shades Apart Quilt

Green, purple and white fabrics look especially nice together. I was compelled to create another quilt with this color scheme.  The quilt uses many of the fabrics from the first quilt; however, the design differs significantly.  The small diamonds throughout the quilt are more rounded.  There is less intricate detail, which creates a more contemporary design.  The drastic contrast between the light and dark colors adds depth to the quilt.  The white fabric appears to be jumping out of the purple background, while the small rounded diamonds keep the white fabric grounded.  The quilt consists of five fabrics:

Warm Batiks Quilt

4 Creative Urban Chic Quilts

Urban Chic Fabric

Urban Chic is a bright and modern fabric line that was created by Tina Higgins for Quilting Treasures. The quilt fabrics feature intricate floral, leaf and geometric designs with simple coloring, including white, green and blue.  This fabric line is fun and versatile to meet many of your spring quilting needs.  Here are a few quilts we designed using various Urban Chic fabrics.

Urban Chic Nine Patch

First, I made a nine patch quilt with a twist.  If you have ever made a quilt like this you know how great the concept is.  If you have never made this type of quilt, get ready to be amazed!  You start off by creating a simple nine patch quilt block.  Sew nine equally sized squares (I used six-inch squares) of fabric together in a desired order to create a quilt block that is three squares wide by three squares high.  Then you cut the quilt block in half lengthwise and across the width.  You now have four identical quilt pieces. Rotate the pieces into the desired pattern and sew the pieces back together.  It’s that simple.  Here is a great video on youtube that was posted by Teresa DownUnder explaining the process.

Our quilt has two different nine patch blocks to add another visual affect: one light and one dark.  Repeat the process with all of your quilt blocks.  Here we used 16 total quilt blocks.  Sew the blocks together in four rows that are four quilt blocks wide.  Add borders, batting and backing, and use your favorite quilting technique to complete this easy and unique quilt. Voila!  This quilt is great for beginners and quilters who want a easy and unique quilt.

Quilt Fabrics Used:

Block 2
Borders

Urban Chic Quilt

The next Urban Chic quilt is perfect for more experienced quilters.  However, don’t let that discourage you.  This intricate design is easier than it looks.  The best way to approach this quilt is to break it down into simple squares.  The quilt contains sixteen identical blocks with a single, overlapping design.  The blocks are rotated 90 degrees clockwise to create the elegant diamond pattern.  To create this quilt as shown, use the following fabrics:

Quilt Block Fabrics
Quilt Border Fabrics

Urban Chic Box Quilt

The third quilt creates a three dimensional effect by using dark and light toned fabrics opposite of each other.  If you look at the quilt from one angle, the fabrics create the illusion of a series of push buttons protruding from the quilt.  From a different perspective, the quilt appears to contain deep, inward boxes.  Do you see layered squares? Hidden diamonds?  Striped hexagons?  However your eyes perceive the quilt, we hope you enjoy its complexity, depth and beauty.  The following quilt fabrics help create this wonderful illusion quilt:

Quilt Block Fabrics
Quilt Border Fabrics

Urban Chic Snowflake Quilt

The final quilt I made using Urban Chic fabrics is exquisite. The quilt resembles something somewhere between an elegant snowflake and a dazzling flower.  The quilt is made up of two versions of the same quilt block that alternate throughout the quilt.  The first block contains brighter, vibrant blue fabrics and some olive green, and the second block showcases calming green with a touch of blue. The contrast in colors between quilt blocks adds depth and texture to the quilt.  The borders tie all of the wonderful quilt fabrics and colors together.
