Cinched Quilt by Amy Friend

I am so excited to introduce my new pattern, Cinched!  Ever since I designed Interlock a couple of years ago, I have been playing around with more jelly roll designs.  I really love Interlock and wanted to design something equally unique and not your standard jelly roll quilt.  Well, it took two years to come up with a design that I liked but I think it was worth it!

Cinched uses a single jelly roll in prints and a single jelly roll a solid (or the equivalent).  It boasts both a bold primary and secondary pattern.  There is hardly any cutting, there’s no squaring up or trimming down, it’s super chain-piece-able, all in all, it’s a cinch to make!

I wanted this quilt to be super cheerful and sunny so I used a Blueberry Park Brights Roll Up by Karen Lewis in combination with Kona Snow for the quilt top. The colors that Karen selected to print on are gorgeous and I have always been a fan of her designs. The wind cooperated with me for all of a second so that you can see the backing too. I used a Rhoda Ruth print by Elizabeth Hartman which makes for a great coordinate.

I quilted in straight lines with a very pale pink Aurifil thread.  It blends very well against the Snow background and isn’t as harsh as white would have been where it crosses through the prints.  I bound the quilt in one of my favorite prints, Creamsicle. Final quilt dimensions are 60″ x 64.”

I had to include this shot just because it’s pretty and I like it!

Cinched is available now as a pdf pattern in all my shops (links in sidebar).  It’s heading out to the printers so paper patterns will be ready for quilt shops very soon.

I hope you are all enjoying your summers!  This was my last sewing goal for the summer so I am hoping to have a more relaxing remaining few weeks…time will tell. I have never been any good at relaxing.
