Stereo Quilt

Monday, November 10, 2014
Today I've got details and outtake photos of Stereo quilt for you!

Quilt Details 
Fabric is Color Theory by Vanessa Christenson of V and Co. for Moda
Pattern - Stereo, JBQ 151
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 9/9/14
Finished on 10/7/14
Quilt measures - 48" x 70"
Stereo and my new Super Sidekick ruler (click the link to the ruler to see the video tutorial on how to use it) were made for each other.

Stereo is made using 10" squares and is super fast & fun to put together.
Outtake Photos
My mom and I took my Stereo quilt to a new park in our area and we found this great climbing rope for the quilt to play on. At first, there was no wind to pick up and swing the quilt.

Then there was too much wind...

Then things got a little better....

I love the look of the binding in this photo.

And eventually the wind calmed down just long enough for the perfect shot. To get the angle I wanted for the photo, I was crawling around in the sand. My knees weren't happy... but I was happy with the photos!

Here are some details of Angela's quilting:

And me wrapped in a quilt... yet again...

Here's the back. I pieced a horizontal label strip with the leftover triangles. You can do this too by checking out my Stereo Pieced Quilt Back Tutorial.


Stereo is really fun & fast to make. Kristi Ryan made this Stereo quilt from Valori Wells's Ashton Road for my quilt market booth. It is baby size and we backed it with the coordinating flannel.

Kristi also made this Stereo quilt from Sara Lawson's new fabric collection Fantasia for Sara's quilt market booth. 

Stereo is so fast to whip together that finished quilt tops are already popping up on Instagram!!

The pattern is printed in full color, and it includes templates. Plus there's no Y seams!
It has 5 sizes: baby, lap, twin, queen, king. Stereo is available in shops now.

For me, it's all about the fabric. Beautiful fabric + a simple design = a beautiful quilt! The "Stereo" quilt has real surround sound...everything works!
