AGF Quilt Block Tour of Makers - Hoop Quilt

Nov 19, 2017
Pin It Indie Folk Hoop Quilt 2
Welcome!  Today I am sharing a project I made using one of the quilt blocks available in the Art Gallery Fabrics Video Tutorial Series on YouTube.  If you haven't stopped by their channel, take a look there the next time you need inspiration.  There are free PDF pattern downloads for quite a few quilt blocks, all with corresponding video tutes using your favorite AGF fabric collections.

I made the Morning Star quilt block.... and of course...... turned it into my favorite project..... a Hoop Quilt!

Indie Folk Hoop Quilt
I decided to use Pat Bravo's Indie Folk collection.  Indie Folk is very different from my normal mix of solids, blenders and tone-on-white prints.  I wanted to work with this bohemian collection to explore something different from my norm and show how well Hoop Quilts can work with all different styles of fabrics.

Due to the sewing of curves to assemble the hoop, I had to make a small change to the assembly of this quilt block.  Instead of the center square being one solid square, I had to make it into 4 smaller squares in order to make 4 quarter circles for the hoop.  No biggie - with a busy floral in the center, I think you may only notice since I pointed it out.

The colors in these fabrics are stunning and I love the way they came together to show off this Morning Star block.  With such busy prints in the line, this hoop only needed a very small amount of embellishment to let it shine.  I added, as always, big stitch hand quilting around the perimeter of the circle and just a few lazy daisy and running stitches at the corners of the quilt block.  Love it!
