Cascade Quilt and Giveaway

As soon as I saw a glimpse of Susannah Kate's new quilt pattern Cascade, I jumped at the chance to be a pattern tester.  I knew I wanted to use my bundle of Indian Summer to make a super soft quilt that would really showcase the fabric!


 I have always wanted to make a plus quilt (my mom thought that meant a really large quilt, so I will clarify that I mean the plus sign you see in the design!) but never really wanted to figure out the math.  I love how this pattern uses negative space to make a really interesting design!  Add to that the fact that you use 10 fat quarters with minimal waste and a yard and half of background fabric and can get everything cut and organized in an afternoon nap and I am sold!


You can see lots of lovely examples of this quilt during the blog hop:

  11. what a very pretty quilt. I love the one yellow plus. I would love to make one of these some day. At work I am going as Cinderella. old patched dress with an old patched apron and a bandana head cover on my head. Using old sheets that I have. I don't eat candy anymore but I love candy corn and reeces peanut butter cups.

  15. This is such a cute design! I think I need to put it on my "quilt list" to make for my youngest nephew. Right now, I am working on several different sewing projects - most as gifts for the holidays and some for myself. Thanks for the chance at a giveaway!

  17. I've always loved that fabric! I'm not dressing up for Halloween, but my 4year old daughter wanted to be the Charlie Brown ghost. Very funny!

  18. So, so beautiful! Love the fabrics - and that's hilarious about "plus" size - I can totally see why she thought that! This is a great pattern. And what I'm sewing?? Susannah Kate's Circle 7!

  20. I love your fabric choices. My 10 week old granddaughter is going as a scuba diver- black onesie, black tights, water bottle oxygen tank with tubing attached to a paci. I have to say- it's pretty cute.

  22. This quilt is beautiful and I really like the way the plusses are made from strips. That's worth a try.
    I'm knitting right now, almost no sewing, but my fingers are itching.
    Thanks for the chance!

  23. Very beautiful and I love anything with minimal waste :) I am sewing a backpack for my daughter.

  24. This is beautiful. I like the plus quilts, but I really like the variation on this one - the way the background has it's own thing going on outside the plusses. Great! I'm trying to catch up on the penny sampler - it's hard not to lose hope, but I'm pushing forward.
