Seattle Streets Wedding Quilt

This quilt is made from a pattern called Seattle Streets.  I found it online at the Caritas Quilts blog.  A friend’s daughter was married, and for the wedding reception, they had all these different green and neutral combinations. I have used the Seattle Streets pattern for other projects as well, and I used it to make a quilt for my son and a quilt for my friend’s baby.  I like it, and it’s a great pattern when you have a lot of fabric to showcase, especially fabric with little patterns.

The pattern itself does take time, but it isn’t nearly the amount of time that it looks like it takes.  The tutorial is excellent! The secret I learned the hard way, and you can see it in the featured picture, is to remember to “square up” your blocks as this pattern can curve easily.  I forgot to do this, and with anything bigger than a baby blanket it shows a LOT.

To quilt it, I decided that swirls would balance out all the blocks and such.

I used it again on my friend’s baby quilt – using a pink line between the fabric instead of the black.

The first time I used this was for my son’s quilt.  I loved the fabrics I’d bought and wanted something that would look like stained glass.  This did the trick perfectly.
