Good Vibrations!

I am really excited to introduce the new pattern from Highway 10 Designs called Good Vibrations.  The pattern utilizes 5” x width of fabric strips that can come from your stash or be purchased as precuts.  We used Cantik Batik Gem Fives. The large quilt uses two bundles and is featured on the cover in the Nunavut colorway.  The smaller version uses one bundle and you can see it below in the Great Lakes colorway.

While we were developing the pattern Kathy made a sample from her batik stash and you can see it over at Tamarack Shack

Kathy and I design our patterns across the miles between Flin Flon and Dauphin, but we were lucky to meet in “the middle” at Fabriculous in Swan River this summer and we got to test the pattern and sew the cover quilt together.  I took it home to quilt it, and Kathy took it back to bind and photograph it.  It was really a fun joint effort.

Good Vibrations really didn’t call for any elaborate quilting. The Ebb and Flow pantograph was run vertically instead of horizontally like it normally is.  It had a very pleasing feel in that orientation.  I had one remaining piece of this Stonehenge backing fabric that was the perfect compliment to the front of the quilt.

Kathy used the Bora Bora pantograph on the smaller quilt and it gives a different feel that compliments the colors well.


Good Vibrations is available in paper or pdf format from our Highway 10 Designs Etsy store or ask your local quilt store owner to bring it in for you!
