Today I'm sharing Glimmer, a brand-new quilt pattern in 8 sizes! Glimmer is the first of five quilt patterns headed your way this Summer and Fall. They just keep a'coming!
Glimmer is a sparkling design where the colors weave together in a glimmering cascade across the quilt top. This is achieved by using a lighter and darker hue in each of several colorways.
The Glimmer quilt pattern includes all the sizes and more! You will love that there are eight sizes in the pattern, perfect for exactly the size of quilt you need.
The Glimmer Quilt Pattern
Glimmer is an easy quilt design that includes all of the sizes - there are 8 in all! Any size you want is covered in this pattern, and I've done all of the math for you. I love doing the math!! :) The quilt block size is perfect to make all of the quilt sizes!
- Baby 45 x 45
- Lap 45 x 63
- Throw 54 x 72
- Large Throw 60 x 80
- Twin 70 x 90
- Full 80 x 80
- Queen 99 x 110
- King 110 x 110
The pattern calls for yardage in 5 pairs of fabrics for the Baby size (10 fabrics), and yardage in 7 pairs of fabrics for all other sizes (14 fabrics). This is pretty easy to achieve with today's fabric collections that have many colorways in them, or even your stash.
Do you love nesting seams? Glimmer includes pressing instructions so almost every seam in the quilt top nests. This makes quilt top assembly so . much . easier!
Those Sweet Fabrics!
This Baby sized Glimmer quilt is made with Garden Delights, a collection of small itty bitty florals by Gray Sky Studio for In the Beginning Fabrics. There are five colorways, each with a light and darker hue - pinks, blues, green, yellows, and red. In these fabrics, the flowers in the darker hued fabric are a little larger than the flowers in the lighter-hued fabric. They blend so well together! You'll find Garden Delights fabrics right here.
The backing is a sweet blue floral from my stash, and the binding is a purple floral from the Garden Delights collection, which does not appear in the quilt top because only five colorways are used, so purple was excluded. The background fabric is solid white.
Fun fact - this quilt was actually finished in March of this year, but moving across the country caused a major delay in the pattern release. We are officially Ohioans!
The Glimmer quilt pattern is an easy quilt pattern designed for experienced beginners who have a few quilts under their needle already. You'll find the pressing instructions that result in nesting seams really help the quilt go together so easily.
The quilting design on this quilt is Echoed Hearts in white thread, done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with Pro Stitcher. This sweet design is perfect for this super sweet baby quilt.
Bonus Quilt Blocks
In some of the sizes in Glimmer, a few extra quilt blocks are made and not used in the quilt top. Making equal number of blocks in each colorway allows you to decide on the order of the colorways across the quilt top after the blocks are made, instead of having to commit to a set order of colors before cutting and sewing, when it can be especially difficult to visualize how the quilt will look.
It's all good! The quilt pattern includes instructions on making pillow covers or small table toppers with the bonus blocks, so they won't go to waste!
