Ambleside Quilt

Ambleside Quilt with Angie Juda

I made this quilt a while ago and although I loved the fabric I thought it had turned out too long and not wide enough.  But…. this quilt has turned out to be be one of my most favorite!!

So, I decided to share it here on my Chic n Scratch blog. I don’t have a video for it, but it’s pretty straight forward once you cut the fabric.

I used Seven (7) Fat Quarters and the picture below shows the quilt top before I gave it to my long arm quilter.

  • Quilt measures:  47 x 72
  • Fabric Line:  Ambleside by Moda Fabrics
  • Fabric needed:  7 Fat Quarters & White Jelly Roll + backing and binding fabric
  • 7 rectangles/blocks across –  6 rectangles/blocks down.
  • 7 patterns of fabric – you need 6 rectangles of each pattern.
  • Each Rectangle measures:  5 x 10
  • Attach a white 2-1/2 x 5 rectangle to the bottom of each 5 x 10 rectangle.
  • 10 Sashing Strips (I used White Jelly Roll Strips)
Special Notes
  • Attach a 2-1/2 x 5 white strip to the bottom of each rectangle (except bottom row – that will be a long sashing strip)

I do not have a pattern for this quilt…. but, the Fat Quarter Bundle included 8 fat quarters of the same fabric line ….. I choose five of them to start with and then changed it to seven.  Then I cut 6 rectangles that measure 5 x 10 out of each fat quarter.

Next I placed the rectangles on my design wall … and proceeded to move them around until I found a pattern I liked. The picture below shows that it wasn’t working and that I needed to add a few more rows to get the colors in sync. After I added two more rows I re-positioned the rows.

For the sashing I  used a White Jelly Roll (on the sides, top and bottom).

Here’s the finished Quilt (after I washed it)….

Brooke was home this weekend on fall break and we had a very nice visit with her and the birds (Elvis and Gizmo). We had Sushi on Friday… played Pokemon Go on Saturday.  I took her to the house we are thinking about building and she packed up and left just a few minutes ago 🙁  Here’s a few pictures ….

Thanks & have a great day!

  1. Hello Angie.. your quilt is gorgeous… you must have more hours in a day that what I have you seem to achieve so much.. well done.. greetings from Australia

  2. Beautiful Quilt! My 3 sisters got our Mom’s sewing talent, totally passed over me! I am not a sewer at all. But I can appreciate the time involved, seeing the work of my sisters. I am amazed at your stamina and talent!

  3. Beautiful quilt! You must never sleep! I love to sew still but can’t find the time I’d like to do it. Maybe when I retire! I just now trying to find time to get back into stamping too!

    • I used to say the same thing… that I would sew when I retire but I’m afraid I may never retire so I better do the things that bring me joy while I still can. But I only allow myself to sew when my work is done and lately that hasn’t happened.

  4. Angie – You are such a talented person. I love so much of the your projects and this quilt is absolutely beautiful. You really know how to stretch your time. Thanks for sharing all of you projects.
