Ode to Lizzy House Quilt

I couldn’t think of a better time to share this Ode to Lizzy House quilt that I made! Even though I finished this quilt a little while ago, I thought it deserved to be documented in the springtime. The other event that happened recently is that Lizzy House is making her return to fabric design!!!! I’ve followed Lizzy for quite a while and I felt that she kept hinting at a possible fabric collection, so I was thrilled to find out her Love Letter collection with Moda will be coming out January 2025. Get ready folks!

A long time coming

Onto this quilt, it was a long time in the making. Like it could possibly be my longest project ever. Not that it took long to make, but it was collected and worked on over time. I’ve always love Lizzy’s fabrics, and found myself collecting quite a few of her collections over time. I would grab a few pieces here and there from quilt shops, even getting a few scrap packs from fellow makers. I had kept it all in a muslin bag in my sewing room as I collected each fabric.

Quilt Design

Eventually the bag got way way too full and I knew it was time to start! If you are familiar with Lizzy’s fabrics you’ll know that they’re special. I wanted to make sure I would be able to fawn over each square once the quilt was made. So I revisited a simple quilt I had made for my daughter years ago. A basic four patch within patchwork.

I took my time working on the quilt top. My kids helped a little when I was cutting fabrics. It came along to a few of my sewing retreats with my friends – all so long before Covid. I think I picked up the project sometime last summer and decided it was finally time to finish.

I sent it off to Katie at Modern Textiles to be quilted. We settled on the Raindrops on Water pantograph with bamboo batting and I bound it in a beautiful chambray stripe.

Project Details:

  • Pattern: made it up
  • Fabrics: Lizzy House (when she designed for Andover Fabrics), plus a few gingham and chambrays thrown in
  • Backing: Carolyn Friedlander wideback and a super huge gingham (anyone know who made that? I seriously no longer have the ability to remember specific fabrics!)
  • Quilting: Modern Textiles (Raindrops on Water panto, bamboo batting)

Thanks Lizzy for your fabrics, and I’m excited for the new ones to come! I’m thrilled with how this Ode to Lizzy House quilt turned out!

    This quilt is beautiful! It makes me think I overthink making a quilt and then scare myself off from actually making a quilt. Less is more. It turned out so beautiful. Thanks for sharing!
