Cabin Valley Quilt - The Scrappy Baby One

The Cabin Valley quilt pattern is now available in my shop
I am so excited to share the second sample for my Cabin Valley quilt pattern today - the scrappy baby one!
Funnily enough, this was actually the first version I made of this pattern. As I explained in my previous post, I wanted to make a quilt pattern similar in vibe to my Cabin Peaks pattern, but that worked with precuts. That meant I needed to check my math and ensure the pattern really did work with precuts, so I got my hands on a 10" stacker of Ahoy! Mermaids by Melissa Mortenson and got to work.
Since I was making a baby size quilt I picked 13 of my favorites prints from the 42 included in the 10" stacker and arranged them into an ombre sort of look. I decided on the arrangement of the colors before I cut into the fabric to make sure there wasn't too much or too little of any one color.

Once I had the quilt finished, I couldn't stop smiling. It was better than I imagined it'd be! The colors were perfect, 10" fabric squares worked perfectly, and it all came together so, so fast!

Straight Line Quilting

Since I sent my Modern Ombre sample and my all-purple sample to the long armer, I decided to quilt this one myself. I kept it simple by going with my trusty 3/4" apart straight line quilting.

I did this on my Janome 9450, using the walking foot, and it quilted in an afternoon! I've said this before and I'll say it again - 3/4" apart straight line quilting is the perfect quilting for just about any quilt! The perfect balance of texture and cozy.

Tester Quilts

And what would a new pattern release be without amazing testers? I had the opportunity to work with both long time testers and new-to-me testers and it was so fun to see how everyone made this pattern their own. So without further adieu and in no particular order, here are the Cabin Valley tester quilts!

Julie

Julie always makes some of my favorite versions during testing and this time was no exception. I love how happy and bright her quilt is!

Amy

It always blows my mind how different a pattern looks depending on fabric choices and Amy's quilt is the perfect illustration to this. It's lovely and incredible and SO different from my own samples and I love it all the same.
