Introducing One Way! March 07 2016, 1 Comment
One Way is one of our newer patterns that we released at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. (Yes, I am just getting around to blogging about it! Sorry!) This modern arrow design was inspired by a wall mural in Japan. We loved the simplicity of the design and immediately wanted to make it into a quilt!
One Way is the perfect quilt for gals and guys! There are so many options - make it scrappy or pick a color scheme and add a "rogue" arrow for an extra pop! The pattern includes 3 different sizes: Venti (80" x 94"), Grande (64" x 76") and Tall (48" x 60").
For the cover quilt, we used assorted low volume prints for the arrows and a navy solid for the background. We threw one orange block in there to mix things up and add a pop of color.
The quilting on this quilt is absolutely perfect. Kristy quilted horizontal wavy lines across the quilt in a light thread. We bound the quilt in a perfectly colored ticker-tape stripe fabric. The backing we chose is black and white print with words.
We took some outdoor photos of this quilt while we were out walking some of our pups, so, of course they decided to pose perfectly. Here is a great shot with the quilt and mountains in the background.
And then of course when I was snapping some closeup photos inside, little Miss Elsie decided she would park it directly on the quilt. I think she secretly knew she would blend in with the low volume arrows!
