Winter Solstice Quilt

Today I’m sharing with you one of the most recent quilts I have designed for P&B Textiles, “Winter Solstice”.  I totally flaked on taking any pictures of my own, which I now wish I had so I’d have more pics to share with you!  When I receive fabrics for my quilts from P&B, time is truly of the essence and the quilt tops must be on their way back in as little time as possible…usually a day or two at most.

Winter Solstice Quilt using Marguerite & Marmalade Fabrics

My design features a Kaleidoscope quilt block and an alternate “9 patch block”(it’s not quite a 9 patch).  No curved piecing although it has the illusion of curves.

The free pattern is available in a large and small size.

The last two photos feature fabrics from Marguerite by Cindi Walker for Riley Blake & Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.  The pattern works very well for showing off a limited color palette.  I was primarily working with blues/greys for the P&B quilt so I went with a high contrast design to show off the fabrics.

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  • I’m always amazed how you can show off fabric collections. Those blues looked so boring before you put them in your quilt design!

  • Love love love the last quilt ~ just wonderful!

    • Thank you!–The large quilt on the P&B pattern is my actual quilt–I just don’t have any photos of my own!

  • The quilt is gorgeous. I can’t imagine how you can have a 2 day turnaround on a design like this. This quilt is a lot like me. It has an illusion of curves.

  • Precioso diseño!!!! Me encanta!!!!!!! y las telas son preciosas!!!!! Felicidades!!!!

  • I love both versions of the quilt. It is just beautiful! There’s something about getting the look of circles without doing curved piecing that really appeals to me. Great work, Corey!

  • […] Corey of Little Miss Shabby designed this quilt pattern, Winter Solstice, saying she got her inspiration from the Kaleidoscope block. It’s to show off fabric collection Galeria Encantada by Gail Marie, for P&B Textiles. The pattern shows it made up in a blue colorway, but I love it in pink where she used Marguerite & Marmalade. So pretty, I’m swooning. Visit her post to get the link to the free pattern. […]
