Patchwork and Poodle’s 12th pattern is here! Meet Everglow! These big blocks come together quickly thanks to strip piecing. I love nothing more than a pattern that is satisfying to assemble and this Everglow quilt hits that perfectly.
Find Everglow quilt in the shop:
Everglow uses half yard cuts of fabric which you mix and match across your blocks. I’ve had testers use fat quarters too – you’ll need twice as many fat quarters as you do half yards if you’re going that route.
For my cover Everglow quilt, I used Ruby Star Society Speckled fabrics. I love that these fabrics are almost solids but they add a really beautiful dynamic to your quilt. They paired so well with the look and feel of Everglow!
- Soft Aqua
- Wine Time
Background is Confetti, and binding in Pine.
My cover quilt is the lap size, which is a really nice 54″ square quilt. Because this quilt has many seams, I performed a victory lap once the quilt top was completed.
The Everglow quilt pattern comes with 7 sizes:
- Pillow – 18” x 18”
- Baby – 36” x 36”
- Lap – 54” x 54”
- Small Throw – 54” x 72”
- Large Throw – 72” x 72”
- Twin – 72” x 90”
- Bed – 90” x 90”
Wouldn’t it make an awesome bed quilt?!
For my backing, I used a print from the Adorn fabric collection by Ruby Star Society. Funny enough, I picked the fabrics for the top before I ever saw the backing fabric, and boy were they perfect for each other!
I knew that I wanted to pattern match my backing so that I wouldn’t cut any of the design off! This is a super easy thing to do! I have a blog post with video all about how to pattern match your quilt backing fabric.
Everglow is labeled as an Intermediate pattern. If you’re comfortable with an accurate seam allowance, you’ll do just fine making Everglow! If you want to test your seam allowance prior to starting this or any other quilt, click here for my how-to video.
All my patterns come with step-by-step color diagrams to help you through any spots! My goal is always to design patterns that you can love making and love the outcome.
