Pattern Testing - Loome Quilt

I tested a great pattern by Riane @ Riane Elise -- Loome Quilt.  The pattern is being released today.  You may have seen my sneak peaks over on Instagram.

I used Kona Natural for the background, as well as Kona Orange, Tangerine, and Pimento.  I had planned to use purple, but I didn't have the right colours.  But guess what?  I had plenty of oranges in my stash.  😉  I'm sure that doesn't come as any surprise to those who regularly follow me.

I made the crib size which finishes 35 x 44 inches.  The pattern also has throw and twin sizes included.  I had a great print in my stash for the back.  Now I wish I had purchased more of it.

I quilted straight lines of varying widths with my walking foot using Aurifil 2150 Pumpkin thread.  I used my favourite Hobbs Heirloom Premium 80/20 batting.

This is a great pattern that is easy to follow.  I would definitely make this pattern again.  Make sure to visit Riane to grab your pattern -- I heard it's on sale for the weekend.

  1. Very nice, Anja! Perfect background!

  2. The backing is definitely perfect and I love the oranges together. Congratulations on the beautiful finish!

  3. Anja, you did a fantastic job with this quilt! I love the simple quilting! :-)

  4. Such an Anja quilt!! Wonderful job. :-) Seems to be a theme with you lately wishing you had more of certain prints for backing lol

  5. Great colors and a great pattern. Was it fast? Love fast baby quilts.

  6. Wow - you've been busy with the testing! This one is another really successful finish - I love the colours and the simplicity of the quilting. And that backing really is perfect! I'm going to have to check out that pattern because the design is so flexible! I can see a bed size quilt in shades of blue for my son who is desperate for another quilt!

  7. I'm not at all surprised you had enough orange fabrics, lol :) I love the simplicity of the pattern and your quilting lines are perfect.
