A while back when I made this pillow
for a swap, I had the idea to make a Tennessee Waltz inspired quilt where there were overlapping chains of stars. I get ideas like this sometimes and they pretty much never work out, but I drafted the pattern in EQ7
and it actually worked.
Meet The Glenda Quilt, now available on Craftsy and Etsy.
She is named after a teacher that I had from 6-8th grade. Glenda Maxwell is one of the most compassionate, patient, and kookiest people I have ever met. She took individual interest in all of her students and she had a profound impact on my life.
For this quilt I used Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids. When I was planning the colors for this quilt, I kept coming back to Cotton Couture because they have the best shades of blue/greens. The colors that I ended up using were Bottle, Teal, Celestial, Peacock, Spearmint, Kiwi, Nickel, Lillypad, Fog, and Bright White.
I had three wonderful testers test out this pattern for me.
Miranda used Bonnie and Camille fabrics on her beautiful quilt. I love how she used a combination of prints and solids, and how the dark gray stars really pop.
Sally used one of my favorite color combos for her gorgeous quilt - I love those minty greens and peaches together.
The third pattern tester is having a whopper of a month. Pat was displaced by the hurricane and then had a death in the family. I will be showing you her quilt soon.
I hope you enjoy the pattern. If you make a version, I would love to see it! Tag it with the hashtag #theglendaquilt on Instagram or email me a photo.
I have a nice sized pile of scraps leftover from making this quilt and I would love to give them away. If you are interested, just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner in the next few days! The winner has been notified, thanks for entering!
