Get that Warm, Vintage Feel with Albion

Hello Quilty Friends and fellow fabric enthusiasts! It’s Karlyn from Charlie Bear Quilts and I’m back with another cozy heart project for you! I had the absolute pleasure of working with Amy Smart’s newest collection, Albion. Soft, muted florals and traditional plaids team up to create the coziest vibe, making it the perfect choice for your next quilt. I naturally gravitate to pinks and navies- I think it’s the most heavenly combination.

Looking for a Fast Make?

Sometimes I’m in the mood for something I can whip up in a weekend. It’s so satisfying! The Unconditional Quilt comes together in a flash because of its big block construction. It works really well for those large scale prints you want to show off. I knew I wanted to make a scrappy quilt, but felt this pattern needed a bold print to anchor everything together. This is what led me to discover the magic of Beverly McCullough’s blender collection, Dainty Daisy. LOVE! For the Unconditional Quilt, I went with Stargazer, but I also love the denim and navy options.

Quilt Sizes Included in Pattern:

  • Lap Size: 40″ x 60″ (this size is perfect for the foot of a bed because it’s long and narrow, so the drape-effect is a 10/10). 
  • Twin Size: 60″ x 80″ I also find this to be a nice big throw size for the living room so you can have more than one snuggler. 
  • Queen Size: 80″ x 100″ Big blocks definitely love to show off in a larger quilt- I think the design becomes even bolder!

The Gift that Says “I Love You”

When designing this quilt, I was thinking about the generosity of quilters, and how meaningful it is to gift handmade. It made me think of those who are struggling through tough times, and how a quilt can be the comforting reminder they are loved.
