Sewing with Color - How to Make a "Kentucky Chain" Block

Kentucky-Block-Tutorial

Hello Makers,

Do you ever have problems finding the perfect go-to blenders to match back with your main fabrics when creating your quilts? I am a print girl all the way but sometimes you need a solid or blender to mix into your quilt to truly appreciate all the beautiful prints and to add contrast to make your fabrics shine. If you are a Pat Bravo fan like me and already have prints from her previous collections then you definitely need to get your hands on her new collection called Matchmade! This collection was meticulously curated to work back with all her previous fabric collections. Of course, Matchmade fabrics also work well on its own or mixing with other various prints you may have.

What I love most about Matchmade is there are five different designs coordinated into four welcoming color groups, berry, gold, foliage and midnight! These tonal prints are just marvelous to sew with. I had the privilege of whipping up the free quilt pattern for this collection and these fabrics against the black solid background is just out of this world.

Berry is by far my favorite color group because I am all about the color pink! But I just had to whip up a block in every color group! In the video below follow along with me to make the Kentucky Chain block. Also, vote on your favorite block! I can’t decide! :)

 

I can’t wait to see what you all make with Matchmade fabrics for inspiration make sure to check out our new Fabric Project Catalog.

Happy Sewing,

Meli
