Sunset Strips – Alison Glass Handcrafted Lap Quilt

April 8, 2015

I’m really pleased with the way this quilt turned out!  I was so excited when I first saw the Alison Glass Handcrafted line at Quilt Market a year ago.  Alison does such a great job with color.  It’s all handmade (like a batik) so you get small variations in the print.  The line is really great to work with!

I started this quilt last Fall at Camp Stitchalot.  All the Campers were oohing and ahhing over the colors in this project.  I decided to use my Sunset Strips pattern and break up the bold colors with some bars of Cotton Supreme Solids in French Vanilla.

This quilt is lap sized (54″ x 66″).  I used the French Vanilla as the binding as well and it’s all hand sewn to the back.

This pattern is quick and easy to put together.  It was nice to have a project to take to the sewing retreat that I could actually finish in the weekend!  It would be even easier if you have a jelly roll sitting around.  I ended up using the Accuquilt strip die to cut these out and it took no time at all!  

My quilter Kathy (Threadbear Quilting) used this really cool plus pattern with this big meander in it.  I think it looks perfect with the plus pattern in the Alison Glass fabrics.  

I’m looking forward to see what the next Alison Glass handcrafted line looks like!!!
