Tartary Quilt Kits

It’s amazing how different a pattern can look just by the choice of fabrics. In our shop we like to make a pattern more than once showing off different fabrics. Whether it’s a garment or a quilt, the fabric choices can make all the difference.

Tartary is just that pattern. We purchased it several years ago, didn’t make a model and it eventually went in the sale room. Then that perfect fabric came along so we brought it back and made the Stonehenge version. It was very well received.

Our favorite fabric collection has to be Aboriginal. We are always looking a new quilt to make using these wonderful fabrics and we decided to give Tartary a try. Wow… very different.

Check out both quilt kits or purchase just the pattern and use your favorite fabrics!

Sisterhood — A new quilt kit from Creations

We are always looking for quilts to show off our Aboriginal prints. The new Sisterhood pattern from Villa Rosa Designs is perfect. It’s an easy quilt to make so it’s fun for everyone.

The finished size of the quilt in the pattern is only 50″ x 64″ so we added additional blocks to make our kit finish at 60″ x 74″. (We have included extra fabric and instructions to complete this size in our kit.)

If you have collected Aboriginal prints, but never used them, then this will be a great quilt for you. Purchase the pattern, background and binding and get started.

Our kit for the Sisterhood Quilt measures 60″ x 74″.
We enlarged the pattern as it calls for only a 50″ x 64″ finish.

In our kit you will also find the background and the binding.

For the backing, purchase:
44″ Directional fabric: 4 3/4yds
44″ Non-directional fabric: 4yds

If you have a collection of Aboriginal prints you want to use, you will need 14 fat quarters (or more) if you are making it the size we did.

You will also need (for the larger size) 1 1/2yds of the black background. We used Chalk and Charcoal from Robert Kaufman so it would not just be a flat black.

Don’t forget the binding. We used the Sandhill Charcoal in black as we love the meandering white lines running thru it. (Purchase 3/4yd)

Now you need a great backing. We have over 100 Aboriginal prints to choose from. Here are a few suggestions. We used the Bush Tucker Red.

Actually, you can’t go wrong with any of the prints. If you want to see them all just click: Aboriginal Prints at Creations
