I thought it might be a good idea to walk through the quilts I have designed using my Panache range. Of course you can use these quilt patterns for any fabric you have, they are not specific to just panache.
First up is Tuxedo Junction. This quilt uses all the Panache wovens, which are very silky soft. A Fat ¼ bundle will give you plenty to work with. You just need to add the sashing and borders. You will also need the plain white background and I have used a Bella Solid 9900 200 which is off white.
I have carefully placed the greys, blacks and reds in this quilt to create the effect I wanted, so if you are using different colours, just give some thought to where the fabrics will go. Follow the pattern instructions for guidance.
Tuxedo Junction is 82" square which is a good size for a full or queen size bed. If you want it bigger it is easy to add extra rows of blocks or another border.
The pattern is available here.
This is Barn Dance and is 78" square.
Once again this quilt uses all the wovens from Panache plus the white background which is Bella Solid 9900 200 called Off White.
The quilting pattern I have used for this is called Paisley. I do all my own long arm quilting.
Barn Dance pattern is available here.
I have used a plaid for the single border, keeping a nice contemporary look. You could certainly add another border if you wished.
This quilt is fun to make, just follow the layout diagram in the pattern, to make sure the reds and blacks are placed the correct way. Lots of chain piecing help to speed up the sewing of this quilt.
I have used a stripe for the binding which I have joined with straight rather than the usual diagonal seams. I thought it was important to keep the stripes regular in the binding, hence the straight seams.
This quilt is Whirlygig, and is made using one Panache Layer Cake.
The background I have chosen is Bella Solid 9900 183 Silver.
The backing on this quilt is one of the Panache Cotton Slubs, which I think really makes a statement.
I have cut the checked binding on the bias and I think it really makes a difference to this quilt. It seams to just finish it perfectly.
I have laid out the blocks in an ombre fashion, the colours are graded dark to light across the quilt. You can layout the blocks however you like, I just thought this was a fun way to do it and I like the effect for a change.
The quilting pattern is called Wind Chimes.
The finished size is 72" x 82".
Here is the link to the pattern.
French Connection is the next quilt and the pattern includes instructions for 3 different sizes. 70" x 70" (pictured), 70" x 86" and 86" x 86".
This quilt is a combination of Panache wovens, cotton slubs and I have used a 60" wide toweling on the back.
The mixture of textures, stripes, spots, checks and florals remind me of antique French quilts that are pieced with old mattress ticking, florals and any other fabrics they could find.
The quilting pattern is just a big classic feather style pattern.
I think this quilt is quite a romantic but contemporary one, and would look lovely is soft pastel florals and stripes too.
Pattern can be found here.
The Panache Quilt is a free pattern that you can download here.
It is a combination of cotton slubs and wovens, with the pre pieced patchwork on the back.
This quilt is totally reversible and I loved it so much I made it in the black colour way as well.
Rhododendron is the quilting pattern I chose for the red version.
Here is this elegant quilt in black and white.
Once again the pre pieced backing makes this a totally reversible quilt.
The quilting pattern on the black one is Modern Basket Weave.
Well that is all the quilts I have designed using Panache.
I hope you find a couple that you will sew with Panache.
