Color values and contrast make this art quilt a ‘mane’ event

If you’re looking into trying something new in quilting, well I really have a special project for you this week. I decided to make Ariel, a beautiful art quilt from the talented Lise Bélanger. And if that’s not enough! I also have a bunch of notions to help me create this masterpiece with more ease. I just can’t wait to share all my new favorite tools and how they made this project easier to achieve. I have so much to share… I honestly don’t know where to begin!

Presenting the Ariel Art Quilt Pattern by Lise Bélanger

Let’s start with the pattern! Ariel is an art quilt pattern created by the very talented Lise Bélanger. She’s won several awards and has ventured into making beautiful patterns that are absolutely easy to follow. And with this week’s blog posts that include all my tips and tricks, the process is even easier!

Now the pattern gives all the details for the quantities of fabric needed to make the quilt, but there’s one tool that I really love using to help me choose the color coordination wisely. It’s the SEW EASY Colour & Tone Guide and Tonal Estimator.
