Disco Quilt

Sunday, October 20, 2013
This week I'm going to tell you a bit more about each of the new patterns I recently announced. Last up is Disco!

Disco uses the Hex N More and is a great quilt to show off fabrics that have high and low contrast.

Quilt Details 
Fabric is Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman
Pattern - Disco, JBQ 138
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 8/21/13
Finished on 9/9/13
Quilt measures - 60" x 80"

Here is the back of the pattern cover.
Each of my patterns now has its own hashtag! #DiscoQuilt


Disco is made with Fat Eighths. You can also use fat quarters and just buy half as many as listed on the back. I made the cover sample with this bundle of 31 fat quarters vs. the 60 fat eighths listed.

Here are some of the outtakes from our cover shoots. Disco was also photographed in Hawaii!

I liked the flowers in the background and the stone on the ground, but the quilt kept falling & just didn't look right.

Next we headed down to the beach...

...but we never quite found the perfect spot.

I had a good feeling about this tree. Lawrence held the quilt up while I did some test shots.

Then he ducked around behind the quilt to hold it in place without being seen.

I love this tree! Check out my tutorial on how to bind quilts with 120-degree angles to finish this quilt.

We had some wind issues for a minute...

...but then they calmed down.

 Peek a boo!

Disco will be available on 10/30.

The zigzag border on this quilt really tops it off nicely - such a wonderful design - glad I found you via the "True Color" bloghop about to start next week (I know - I've jumped the gun! Eat dessert first, right?!)

Great photos, great work!
