FRIVOLS 4 – Windermere by Brenda Riddle
It’s the season – the days are getting shorter so it seems like they’re just flying by. It was just yesterday that Frivols 3 – Eliza’s Indigo arrived. We’ve gone from dark, rich color and Reproduction prints to the clear, soft colors and prints of an English countryside garden.
This is Lakeland – named for the English Lake District that Brenda loves. The quilt uses 39 of the 42 squares and 2 1/4 yards of background fabric, and the finished quilt measures 50″ x 50″. You can use one of the ivory-cream prints from the collection or a Bella Solid. (We used both for our samples.) Making this quilt a bit larger is easily done with the addition of a border, or a couple of them.
The quilt is made with flying geese that finish at 2 1/2″ x 5″ – so the squares are cut at 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″. There is enough room with the print squares that if you’d prefer to use another method for the geese – Bloc-Loc, Fit to be Geese, Calling All Geese or Quilt In A Day – there’s enough fabric for that.
The Frivol 4 ~ Windermere tin will contain:
A roll of 42 squares – 7″ x 7″ from the Windermere collection by Brenda Riddle
A pattern for the quilt we’ve titled “Lakeland”
2 skeins of Lecien Cosmo embroidery floss selected to match the colors in Windermere
1 Maker block card with a block pattern and a quotation provided by Brenda Riddle
Note: The pattern and Maker card are located under the printed insert.
Lakeland. This quilt was inspired by the fabric, and by Brenda’s style of quilts. It makes sense that she loves the English Lake District and the lovely gardens there, her quilts are always soft, pretty and filled with flowers.
There are some duplicate fabrics in this Frivol roll – with the large-ish size of the geese, we just preferred the pretty floral prints and decided to have extras of those.
NOTE: This is not an auto-ship or club. Frivols are sold individually. Moda will be releasing a new Frivol kit every month over the next year. There will be twelve styles in the collection. Collect them all or just the ones you want!
Batting and backing fabric not included. Some patterns may require additional yardage.
