Twilight Chic Week

Welcome to the final day of the Studio 180 Design Twilight Chic Week. There have been so many great projects from the Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors that featured Deb Tucker's Signature Collection "Twilight Chic" by Kathy Engle for Island Batik this week.  Today, we are finishing off the week with two more projects from my fellow Studio 180 Certified Instructor Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler and myself.

Today, I would like to show off my newest pattern "Getaway." These lovely butterflies are taking a flight to “Getaway” from the busy world around us.  This quilt that measures 45” x 45” when complete features the Studio 180 Design Square Squared® 6”, Split Rects®, and Rapid Fire® Lemoyne Star tools.  

I originally designed this project especially for Island Batik Ambassador "Getaway" blog hop to that showcase the Twilight Chic fabric collection. You can read about the original quilt, HERE.   So, when I was asked to be part of this Studio 180 Design Twilight Chic Blog Hop, I thought it was a good time to write the "Getaway" pattern because I had so many requests for it. 

Additionally, I wanted to test it out with another color version using the rest of the Twilight Chic Collection I had leftover.

My original Getaway quilt used colors from half of the collection which are more the purples, blues, and tans in the quilt. The colors in this half of the Twilight Chic fabric collection are so vibrant and bold. 

The second quilt I made uses the other half of the collection, which features more of the golds, and greens of the Twilight Chic collection.

This version makes the purples and greens really pop out.   

I love making this pattern, it is so much fun and easy to put together.  The only hard part about making this quilt is choosing the fabrics and making sure the block orientation is going in the right direction.

I really can’t decide which quilt version I love the best. The fabric collection is perfect for both versions.  Which one is your favorite? 

If you are interested in purchasing "Getaway", it is currently set for release next Friday, February 15th.  Please sign up for my newsletter to receive notification of the pattern release and upcoming events going on with Quilting Affection Designs.
