Time to Make the Bed

After traveling, the house, the studio and I was (were) a mess.  (too tired to think about grammar!)I had time to put the quilts away, clean and make the bed before packing and heading out again. As you know, making the bed means changing the quilt. This time I chose "Outside In". I designed this quilt as part of an experiment with putting the majority of the design of the quilt on the outer edge...or in the border as some might say. I have another quilt designed like this (hopefully Interweave will release that one some day). It was cut from the book and I'm kinda bummed that I can't show it.
I like the back of this quilt as much as the front.  This is one of the patterns that will be released this fall along with "Broken Cogs."  It's been a long time coming, but it is finally going to happen!
Wish I was sewing...are you?

This is really cool! I love that idea!

Doreen said...

Adore that quilt!!! Am more of a "traditional" quilter gal BUT the longer I follow you the more I am drawn to the more contemporary style! Love that the center is so "clean" with the interest in the outer areas....your eye drawn by the awesome quilting!!! My thoughts are whirling in new directions!!!! Happily sew!

Anina said...

I love the way you put the quilt on the bed. Making a queen size quilt is very daunting to me but this way I can have a smaller quilt on the bed and still have it look amazing!
Thanks!!!!!

Annie said...

I love the design and color of this quilt!...as well as the quilting. Well done and outside the box too! I love quilts as an accent to bedding much more than as a "bedspread". Your bed looks so lovely!

Carla said...

This is gorgeous!

Rileigh said...

I love this quilt! My best guy friend loves it, too! Can't wait for the pattern to come out - he wants me to make him one in navy and gray colors!

MariQuilts said...

I love this quilt...I also love the way you display it on the bed this way. I'm going to have to start buying more neutral duvet covers so I can try that.

Mama Spark said...

As you know this quilt is near and dear to my heart! I can't wait for it's sibs to be finished and on their way to you!! = )

Looks like being Square is Cool. Love this one, Jacqui. Sewing? I'm in between quilts. Pondering turquoise and brown, deep pinks (Kona). Just finished my variation on your Blue Ice using scraps, Artichoke, Snow and Celery and Stone with Peach accent. Love it. Thanks for the idea!

Jenny said...

Wow, I really love this!

Debbie said...

This quilt is gorgoeus. SO different from what I am making which is a t-shirt quilt for my son's graduation.

Beautiful--front and back. Your bedroom is so calm and serene. Mine is overdue for a makeover. Did you quilt the white quilt and shams too?

Meg said...

Jacquie, that's gorgeous! I definitely wish I was sewing, that's for sure. No AC at home makes it hard to get excited about turning on the iron, so we'll see what I get accomplished this weekend. Not lacking inspiration, only motivation!

Laura said...

Omg you've done it again! Inspired me, that is! I adore this quilt!

carol said...

I adore that quilt! Did Angela quilt that one too? Awesome quilting (again!)

Mego said...

I AM sewing...just taking a break! I'm making your 'Stepping Stones' pattern but using an apple print (old old old) for the background and little prints for the 'stones'...I'm TRYING to use up what I have.

Thanks folksmith well said :-)

Sharon said...

I love the idea of piecing around the edge! Great quilt. I love your designs, I he there are more books coming like Quilting Modern!

cinzia said...

Love this idea of a border design! Looks great. In the summer it's harder to spend lots of time in front of the machine, so I have a big handsewing project to take with me to the pool, vacation, etc...

Pile O Fabric said...

I love this quilt! Oh it is so my style, I would love this on my bed. Do you do your quilting on a home machine? I'm looking forward to Walking Foot Wednesday!

I am sewing and I feel like I'm on to something. I've had a couple of really interesting finishes, then I tossed a project... and started something new.
I love that idea of putting the interest round the outside.. clever.

Nanci said...

How many bobbins did you use for this quilt? And how do you decide which pattern to use? I usually just stipple or free motion...it must take ages to do. I love it, back and front!

Jacey said...

It is just incredible! I adore this quilt.

Robin said...

You know how every once in a while you see a quilt that just speaks to you? Tis one is just screaming at me. I love it so much! I know I can make it - I have studied it on my computer screen for a couple days now. My version will probably be a little different without your pattern, but I am so excited to try! You are truly inspirational!

Emily said...

I love the change of quilts, and no I am not sewing. In fact I am calling random numbers that I have written on pieces of paper...lol

Suz said...

I just love the way you "make your bed". Wallhangings are nice, but bed quilts are extra special, and it's surprising how everyone displays them everywhere imaginable except on a BED!

Patty S. said...

I love that quilt, style and quilting. Thanks for another inspiring work.

carolyndawn said...

Broken cogs...........Loved this quilt from the first moment I saw it. Looking forward to a pattern. All your quilts are damned amazing!!!

Em said...

I am SO Sewing!!!! I feel so blessed to have seen Katie's quilts at Island Quilter and to be at a guild meeting with her. I have always loved your blog but did not put it together that you collaborated with her. All I can say is thank you! for your inspirations in the book! and your blog!!!!

Staci said...

May I ask before the pattern is published what batt you used for this? I must try it and might use 100% cotton.

hilary said...

I want this pattern. Are we closer to a publication date?

Eelika said...
