Welded - An AGF Stitched Free Pattern & a Give-Away!

Kimberly from Fat Quarter Shop has teamed up again with Art Gallery Fabrics and created an adorable, quick quilt pattern, Welded. 
Kimberly asked me if I'd join her and make a fun version of this quilt. You know I love Art Gallery Fabrics, and a quick quilt, so I was more than happy to join in!



Kimberly's original version of Welded is pretty scrappy, well, at least scrappy for me. I chose to tone it down and just used four different prints, the Prisma Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics.
This quilt was so fun, and fast to make. the pieces are large so cutting and sewing is really fast. The pattern for this quilt is a free pattern, you can download it here. Kimberly has also created a video tutorial with a few tips to make this quilt even easier, you can check out the video here.

I wanted to keep my quilt simple and crisp, so I chose to machine quilt edge to edge straight lines, They are about 1/2" apart, I used Quilters Dream Poly Deluxe Batting and So Fine! by Superior Threads. I love how this quilt turned out, and the colors are perfect for my new home. :)

Welded Quilt Kits are available for purchase here.

Here's your chance to play with some yummy Art Gallery Prisma Fat Quarters!!

Simply leave a comment, tell me what your favorite part of the quilt making process is. I'll select one lucky winner to win this bundle, donated by Fat Quarter Shop.
Winner will be selected 9/28/15!

GIVE-AWAY CLOSED, WINNER IS ERIN McSWEENEY

    ReplyDelete
  14. My favorite part is piecing. It is a true labor of love

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love everything about the quilting process since I have a longarm and can do the whole quilt myself. I guess the binding would be my least favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favorite part of quilt making is to first design the pattern (if I am designing my own), and then to finish the top -- I love seeing a design that lived in my head come to life as a pattern and then come to life as a quilt top and turn out even better than imagined!

  18. I love how the fabric looks like it was all solids, then printed triangles on it after piecing (even with the seams and triangles going in different directions.) So cool!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love piecing and deciding on fabrics - love to experiment!

    ReplyDelete

  21. The actual quilting is my favorite part....being new to longarming, I am always anxious to load the quilt and try something new.

  22. I loved the colors you used. Would you mind sharing which ones you chose? I looked at the collection, and while I can tell which fabric is the white, I can't quite decide on the blue, grey (matte zirconia?) and dark (jet onyx or sapphire sparkle?). The quilt is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the whole process from beginning to end, but I guess my very favorite part is deciding on the placement of the blocks within the design.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love matching a pattern to fabric or fabric to a pattern. I also really enjoy hand stitching the binding down as the finishing step because I get to enjoy the quilt up close for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love piecing but am slowly coming around to love the quilting too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Putting it together and seeing the pattern emerge.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My favorite part is the quilting. I find it relaxing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. My favorite part is choosing fabrics. But I also love the zen of quarter inch seam piecing. Those art gallery fabrics are so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love seeing it all come together. Cutting is my least favorite part, I love seeing the quilting enrich and highlight the piecing. It's such a great hobby.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My favorite part is the designing. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love designing and pulling fabrics! That really gets my creative juices flowing. I pretty much love all the steps of creating a beautiful quilt : )

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have 2 favorite parts...
    choosing the fabric and sewing on the binding! Everything else just needs to be done lol.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Every part is so much fun! Starting a new project is always exciting. But I love quilting the most. Especially now that I have my own longarm! I've finished more quilts in the 6 months since I've had Mimi than I have in the last 2 years!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I enjoy picking out the fabric, and sometimes think I spend too much time doing so. My least favorite is the actual quilting, although I'm getting better at it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Beautiful quilt! My favorite part is choosing the fabrics (does that count?) and my next favorite is piecing.

    ReplyDelete
  36. My favorite part is designing it or if I have a pattern, choosing the fabric. I enjoy all other aspects,except for making backings. Your fabric coices her are genius. Love the illusion that the triangles were printed on the entire quilt after piecing solids.

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite part of the quilt making process is cutting. There's just something about it that makes me happy. And I agree with everything that yomama said about your fabric choices. Brilliant use of these fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I get excited when I put together the fabrics and pattern and start planning and cutting - then when it is all cut, the first few blocks have me feeling great. If there are a lot of blocks - the sameness will get tedious and my enthusiasm wans - then comes the borders - I hate borders - I won't accept anything but a FLAT border and that means a lot of do-overs. Then I have to start thinking about the back. A lot of times my back mirrors the front or I will make an oversized block from the front for the back....so I guess I have no favorite part - just parts that are not as much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Choosing fabrics and making the blocks is the most fun for me!

  45. Absolutely love this version! Quilting! Definitely the quilting :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. The binding. Because then It's done! Great quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  47. My favorite part of "quilting" is making the top or flimsie. The rest is just work to me, however; I love the creativity of the top and using new techniques.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm new to quilting so my favorite part right now is figuring out the right way to construct the blocks and pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sewing the quilt top together is my favorite part of the process. It's like putting a puzzle together--have I chosen the best color and prints for the design I picked. Thanks for your blog with all the quilting ideas. It helps.

    ReplyDelete
  52. love your quilt. Thanks for the chance

    ReplyDelete
  53. My favorite part is picking the pattern and fabrics, and then cutting, and then sewing individual blocks. The hardest part for some reason, is putting all the blocks together to make the completed top - something about all that fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love hand stitching the binding!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think that planning the quilt is the most fun. What colors, fabrics, pattern will I use... To me, these are all great questions to try to answer!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love finishing the first block - all the fabrics are cut out and you've got the hang of the pattern, just the sewing to go! x

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love piecing the best because, by then all the hard part of deciding what fabric to use is done. Deciding how to quilt now that is another problem. I love the straight lines that you choose. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  58. Gorgeous quilt! I downloaded the pattern, thanks! My favorite part is either giving it to the recipient or taking it out of the drier after washing it. My least favorite part is easier--basting!

    ReplyDelete
  59. My favorite part is the quilting on my longarm.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the quilting with my longarm but sometimes, it takes me awhile to put the quilt on, the "how am I going to quilt it" really slows me down.Once I get past the 1st row or so and the "what was I thinking"mindset, I love, love to quilt. Thanks. So pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Your quilt is beautiful. My favorite part is the quilting. I have a long arm and get excited when I have finished the top and am ready to quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This quilt is amazing with the "gotta have it" written and/or quilted all over it! My favorite part of quilting is giving it to someone. I start each project with a person in mind and imagine their reaction when I give it to them. Wish I could send pictures of those events. Just last week I left a well deserving teacher speechless and a disabled man in a wheelchair and his wife in tears. So my joy comes on delivery day because I made someone feel special. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to share.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I just love shopping for the perfect fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  64. My favorite part is actually piecing. That's once all my fabric's cut and ready to sew like mad.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have to say that I like each and every part of the quilt process. But, I guess that I would have to say that my favorite part is piecing. Love your version of Welded.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I am learning to love every step of the quilting process. I still have a minor dislike of sandwiching, but even that is getting easier with every new tip or trick that I read about.

    ReplyDelete
  67. My favorite part is the planning. Or the cutting. Or the piecing. Definitely not the basting. Thanks for the opportunity.

  68. I like the piecing best and then binding.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh, I'm so glad that you selected the Prisma Elements fabrics! I was wondering what this pattern would look like with them. It's even cuter that I imagined. My favorite part of the making a quilt is the actual quilting part. I also struggle the most with it at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I really like the fabrics you chose for this quilt, to me it is soft yet bold and definitely would be a great cuddle quilt on the chilly days ahead of us. My favorite part of quilting is actually cutting the fabrics! Just spend all the time I can on cutting the fabrics and prepping myself for all the seam sewing next. Thank you for sharing this great quilt and the awesome give away! Have a wonderful creative day! brend_ack@yahoo.com

  73. Oh, I love this Prisma collection and what you've done with it! I'm so glad I saw this quilt using this bundle...I'm definitely choosing this bundle to make this quilt! My favorite part of quilting is the piecing. I enjoy the process so much.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Your Welded quilt is fabulous! I love your use of the Prisma Elements! The quilt has movement and energy and style!
    I spend ages searching for the right fabrics for each quilt (so I must like that part) and do enjoy piecing... seeing my vision come together. I'm not a confident quilter, so tend to procrastinate on that phase. I am happy to finish binding my quilts!

    ReplyDelete

  82. In the past I would have said piecing, however after receiving my long arm about four years ago, today I would have to say the quilting process is my favorite. I still feel like a "greenie" quilter on the long arm and am in awe of all of the beautiful quilting in todays quilts :D

  84. I love designing and picking out the fabric. Piecing and quilting (on a long arm) are fun, but the binding is my least favorite. I just want To be done at that point.

    ReplyDelete
  85. This blog hop is wonderful. It demonstrates just how big a role fabric choice plays in the quilt making process. You may think you don't care for a pattern when it's really the fabric choices.

    I like different aspects of the quilting process for different reasons. If the quilting is going well, I like that the best as it can transform the quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I guess the part I like the best is piecing the completed blocks together to see how the quilt actually looks. You see it in your mind, but sometimes reality doesn't see it the same. That is the life changing moment of the quilt. It either becomes a quilt or a UFO.

    My favourite part of quilting is designing blocks/quilts, then doing fabric pulls from my stash! I have more piles of graph paper designs and the fabrics I chose, and yet I still continue to think/ponder/draw/pull every day!!!
    Thanks!

  105. My favorite part of quilting is matching the perfect quilt with the recipient. Sometimes its the fabric choices and others its the quilt pattern name. It is especially satisfying when the recipient "gets" the connection.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Hummm, it's hard to choose! I love choosing the fabrics, I love piecing, I love handquilting. I guess the handquilting would win above the others, but not by much! sarah@forrussia.org

    ReplyDelete
  107. I pretty much love every single part of the quilting process, but I think my favourite is taking it out of the dryer when it's slightly damp, blocking it, and running my hands and eyes over the lovely yummy crinkly texture. :-)

  108. While I certainly love to shop for fabrics and choose my fabrics, piecing the quilt brings me immense joy. I love creating beautiful items from bits of fabric.

  121. Your quilt is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

    My favorite part (after the planning and buying stage which is probably everybody's favorite part) is cutting the fabric. It's so good to see all those neat stacks of fabrics, ready for sewing. And the least favorite part is basting since it's hard on my poor old knees.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I like picking colors and prints. Cutting not so much!
