Hello Friends, it’s lovely to have you visit again. I hope you have had a lovely weekend. Did you do anything fun, or quilting-related?
I am happy to share with you my Interlock quilt that is featured in the current Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts Fall 2013 issue.
This quilt uses really straightforward and regular piecing technique even though the layout gives the illusion of possible Y-seams. Trust me, it is just an illusion.
I designed this quilt with beginners, quick and easy in mind. My goal was to achieve a look of sophistication with easily constructed blocks in mind.
I used fabrics from Red Rooster’s Mango Tango collection for my Interlock quilt. You can see some of the swatches used in the following image.
If you recall, I actually had another featured quilt earlier this year using fabrics from the same collection. My Tango quilt was Cover Quilt of Quilt Trend’s Winter 2013 issue.
Now back to Interlock, quilting was kept very simple using Aurifil Mako 50 Cotton threads over Hobbs Tuscany Silk batting.

Very nice~! Good job!
It does look like such a complicated design. I think the simple quilting fits this one perfectly.
One thing for sure it seems it would be hard to get bored with doing the same design over and over again. There are so many varieties and colors to make it interesting…
I so love the optical illusion in this one!! And the perfect pattern for that special (hard to pick for) person…..guy? college student? Wonderful use of the fabric. It’s not a line I would have given a second look but used in this way, it’s a “knock out”!!! SCORE!!!!! LOL! Hugs…..SSAB
This is a wonderful quilt, very fresh and modern! Lovely scattered movement!
Have a great day.
