Introducing Quadrant Court! November 15 2016, 1 Comment
Today I am introducing a new paper-pieced quilt pattern - Quadrant Court! This fun and fast pattern uses three fabrics to create a visually intriguing quilt. Each block contains three sewing lines, so this quilt flies together! The pattern includes full size foundations, three pattern sizes and complete paper-piecing instructions. This is a great pattern for paper-piecing beginners and experts alike!
For the cover quilt, we chose a black and a white print for the X's, each with a subtle tone-on-tone print, and a solid teal for the background. Throw in a black and white diagonal stripe for the binding, and voilà! All of these fabrics from Robert Kaufman turned into a beautiful quilt!
Our talented friend, Juli Kieny quilted this Quadrant Court. She quilted serpentining lines in the background, swirls in the white and two straight lines in each black wedge. I love how the contrast of the quilting designs in the black and the white fabrics plays with the design.
I had lugged my quilt ladder (aka an Ikea towel rack) down the street a block and to a worn down garage. I leaned the ladder up and draped the quilt on the ladder. I love this background! It reminds me of those photography backdrops from the 90s we took family photos in front of!

And knowing us, we can't just make one version of any of our patterns, we had our good friend Juli sew up a Quadrant Court quilt made up in Art Gallery Fabrics.
I had a blast shooting this quilt! I was driving around Boulder, CO scouting backdrops for our Paradox Point quilt cover and came across this mural. I knew it was too busy for a cover photo, but couldn't resist draping this version of Quadrant Court in front of it for a few photos! The mural was designed so the window is being picked up by the figure, so I placed the quilt in front of the window and I love how it looks!
It is always fun to play with different fabrics in designs. I love the contrast of the ditsy floral print with this very geometric design. Juli did an amazing job, as always! She quilted serpentining lines across both the magenta and floral print and a flower that filled the background diamond.

The Quadrant Court pattern is available in both PDF and paper form. If you make this or any other Sassafras Lane project, we would love to see it! Send us photos, post them to our Flickr group or use our #sassafraslane hashtag on Instagram! Next I will be sharing all 4 versions of our new BOM pattern, Paradox Point!
