Bourbon Street Quilt

I'm still in the process of sewing my stash this year and this was a really fun one to make!


The pattern is Bourbon Street by Sassafras Lane Designs. I went for a soft vintagey color scheme of yellow, green, coral, pink, aqua and gray.


I rummaged through my scraps and small pieces to find favorite prints...


making it a fun album of favorites from the past few years. The aqua solid is a Cirrus solid from Cloud 9.


This is a big quilt for me, so I quilted it on the Bernina longarm at my local quilt shop. The back is one of my favorite Anna Maria Horner prints - it's a winner with all the colors and found on sale at Hawthorne Threads.


We took it on an outing at a local nursery while shopping for plants. Seems to fit nicely in the garden, don't you think?


I don't immediately wash all my quilts, but this one is going in to get all crinkled up. I think it will be a good snuggler!!

  1. I've seen this pattern before in Mardi Gras colors, apropo I suppose. You choices give it a fresh and totally different feel. Beautiful.

  2. Your quilt is a beautiful show-stopper. And the colors are so fresh and soothing! I really dislike paper piecing, but could probably piece that sashing with templates (??) congrats on your finish.

  14. Just saw your post and beautiful quilt. I too love the pattern and it would be a great one to use up some of my scraps too. I even have a pantograph that would be fun to quilt it with called Bourbon street. Now to find the pattern and I'm all set. Thanks for sharing the idea. PS I miss you at guild. We are going to the Country Wine Gardens next month -- come surprise us if you are in the area.

  15. This quilt is gorgeous! The aqua really softens it up and gives it a vintage look which I love. I liked it so much that I decided to check out the pattern. Yours looks so much nicer than the original version.

  19. I think this is wonderful. I have not had a chance to look at the other blogs. However, the tumbling spools looks awesome too. Love the colors in this...almost a robin's egg blue with a blast of fun colors
