Over the past few months, I've gained a greater appreciation for simple quilts patterns and limited color palettes. I've also been trying to come up with some fast, but cute quilt patterns for gift quilts. I designed the Pixel Chain quilt to blend those elements. Plus I need to work through my stash!
I used all Cotton + Steel prints, mostly from the Spring 2015 collections. I recently purchased the Creative Grids Stripology ruler and it made the cutting process for this quilt a total breeze. After that, it didn't take long to chain piece all the blocks.
I machine quilted it with diagonal lines using variegated Aurifil 50wt cotton (#4647) that incorporates blue, white, and pink. It's hard to capture the thread in photos but it made for a really cool effect.
The quilt pattern is available in my Craftsy shop for only $4 and it includes instructions and yardage for three quilt sizes: baby (40" x 40"), lap (48" x 56"), and twin (64" x 88"). This particular quilt is the lap size and it's available for purchase in my bigcartel shop.
