Vortex Quilt – Crib Size in Phosphor

Y'all know I love a good rainbow quilt! Yet somehow when I saw all the beautiful day-glow colours in my friend Libs Elliott's Phosphor collection, it didn't occur to me that they would actually make a really awesome rainbow, until she posted a picture of them all lined up in rainbow order. I immediately ran over to mock up this baby Vortex quilt and then begged for some fat quarters to make a sample. It was June. It was Pride month. It was the awesome neon quilt that the world needed in that moment!

Vortex Quilt Pattern

Vortex is a modern log cabin quilt with a twist! Clever fabric choices give a sense of depth, and large centers are perfect for fussy cutting larger motifs. This fat quarter friendly pattern includes instructions for crib, throw, and queen sizes, with two setting options.

Cuteness overload warning: Making a quilted apron

This cute little apron is a modification of a pattern from my friend Dara Tomasson’s new book Walk, Jog, Run. I used these adorable Pine Lullaby prints from Art Gallery Fabrics and cut the squares at half the size to make a toddler size version of the apron. It came together super quickly, and I just love how it turned out.
