Petal Junction - Highway 10 Designs Pattern #16

So happy to share that Lori and I have published a new Highway 10 Designs pattern, this one is called Petal Junction and has 3 layout options.   Fabric requirements are given for 7 sizes, from Toddler to King and is a Fat Quarter and Half Yard Friendly pattern.   We wrote this one with directional and large scale prints in mind and the instructions direct you to a chose from 2 piecing options depending on if your using directional prints or not.

This first sample was made by our friend Reneta and she did the X's and O's layout using the Harmony collection by Melissa Lee for Riley Blake Designs. She made the Throw size that is 60" x 75" which used 20 fat quarters plus a background fabric.  We also give the option for using fat quarters for your background if you like a scrappy/low volume look. 

We have a lot of samples to share with you so this post will be picture heavy!  This next sample is one Lori made using Little Forester Fusion by Art Gallery Fabrics.  She made the Double which is 90" x 90" and used 18 half yards of the focus fabrics. 

To eliminate waste fabric we include instructions for you to sew bonus HST units as you sew your blocks. These are not used in this quilt top but can be used for a bonus project or blocks to add to the backing. We include diagrams for 3 star layouts that came be made with this HST units.  Lori used one of those star designs and added them to her backing.

Lori also made this sweet Toddler sized quilt using the One-Way layout. She used 12 fat quarters of Primavera by Figo and the size measures 45"x 60".

This next sample was made by our friend Amy and she used a fat quarter bundle by Desert Wilderness by Boccaccine Meadows for Figo Fabrics. She did the One-Way layout and made the Lap size which is 60"x 60" using 16 fat quarters and a solid colour background.

I quilted this one for her and used the Ombre pantograph, used a beige So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

The next two samples are ones that I have made and are both Lap size using the X's and O's layout.  The first one is made with a mix of the  Kismet collection by Sharon Holland and the Homebody collection by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics.  The background is a black Deco Stitch by Art Gallery. I quilted it with the Windswept pantograph, used light grey So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.

My second sample was also made with a mix of mostly Homebody and a bit of Kismit by Art Gallery Fabrics.  I quilted it with the Bountiful Feathers pantograph, used off white So Fine thread and Quilters Dream Blend batting.  

This time I used 5 low volume fat quarters for the background.  We give the fabric requirements for background in yardage and fat quarter amounts.

I have this one hanging in my longarm studio now!

We didn't have a sample with the third layout option which is the Zig Zag layout.

Petal Junction is now available in both paper and PDF instant download formats and can be found on our Highway 10 Designs website and Etsy Shop
