A quilt of another colour | Christine Baker – Fairfield Designs

Let’s check in with Christine Baker (and Fairfield Designs), and see how a change of colours for a quilt pattern turns out.


One of the BEST things about designing in quilt patterns is getting to see the quilt made in a different selection of fabrics! This pattern is called “Stella Violet”, after Nellie’s cute little grand daughter, and last week I got to quilt Donna Taylor’s version of our pattern. Not for the faint of heart, this quilt pattern has blocks that have 49 pieces in them, but Donna likes a challenge, so not only did she make the quilt, but she made it twice as big!! And for her colour palette she used white as a background with dusty blue, rose, pink and grey fabrics. It turned out just beautiful!! more…
