Introducing Clay Court! July 07 2017, 0 Comments

Today is Clay Court's day in the sun! This quilt is incredibly versatile and so much fun to make. The block is comprised of small squares inside of a triangle inside of a square and can be made with scraps or precut 2.5" strips sets!

Clay Court

For our cover quilt, I dug into my color coordinated scrap bins and got cutting! There are seven rows in the "grande-size" quilt, so I pulled yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, teal and green fabrics. I arranged the blocks in rainbow order to create a beautiful gradation of color.

I fussy-cut cute little critters and prints with the same background color as the triangles to add little fun surprises in each block. I love finding something new every time I look at the quilt!

Clay Court

We photographed the Clay Court cover quilt on the side of a very interestingly painted home in Kirkland, WA. The home was about to torn down, so we pinned directly into the siding and snapped some photos. The house is no longer there, but it sure was fun!

This quilt pattern has endless design options! We included 9 different ideas in the pattern and here are a few additional ideas. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Clay Court

We, of course, made more than one Clay Court quilt. I made a "venti-size" out of my low volume stash. I used all the scraps from previous projects and paired it with Kona wasabi for the background. I used a darker lime green print for three blocks and stacked them in the top left part of the quilt for a little interest!

Kristy's quilting on this Clay Court makes me happy. She separated the pieced triangles into two areas and quilted serpentining lines in the background and inner part of the pieced triangles. This quilt now lives on my couch! It looks great with the low volume Darby Road I will be sharing soon.

We made a square version of Clay Court similar to our cover version for Michael Miller Fabrics' Quilt Market booth. We used Our Yard by Sarah Campbell and basics to create a rainbow quilt.

I fussy-cut birds, animals and flowers that sit in the blocks with colorful prints and solids. The colorful blocks pop off the gray leafy background.

We made another version of Clay Court using a Me+You Indah pop which is a precut 2.5" strip set of the gorgeous Me+You fabrics. We used the earthier palette on a light mint solid background.

We arranged this one into alternating horizontal diamonds and snapped some photos on the purple and lime green doors.

Kristy quilted this Clay Court with serpenting lines in the pieced triangles and feathers in the background. Add in a scrappy binding and voila!
