Soaring Views – Villa Rosa Blog Hop

Every once in a while you receive an email that makes you jump for joy. Bernie Kringel connected me to her friend Tricia of Villa Rosa Quilts and can I tell you how excited I was. I love those little patterns and have used and sold many while I worked at a local quilt store. There are a 5 patterns that we are all featuring – and believe me – I wanted to make more than one. I have another planned, but it will show up in a few months….maybe after my next retreat. And, there’s an app for that! Check it out in Google Play or the App Store to keep track of your patterns!

Pattern and Fabric Choice

I chose Hillside Charm as the pattern I would use for this hop. I love panels and this pattern is so easy….a panel, a few fat eights or a charm pack, a border, backing and binding and you are off to the quilting race.

These are the fabrics I purchased for the hop. I filled in with some other fabrics in my stash that worked well, including some fossil fern green blue that I believe was among the first fabrics I bought in the early 90s. In fact, I made sure I had enough to make a second quilt, as I really love this grouping and may not be able to let go of this quilt!

My Electric Quilt Rendition

I like to know if what I am thinking is working, and Electric Quilt** is often my go to for making up mind. The fabrics in the patches are not exact, but they give me a guide to see if what I am doing will work. This looks to me like a go, so off to the sewing machine I went!

Experienced quilters always do something to make the pattern their own. My twist was to use a running length of yardage rather than the panel. The only caveat, and this is true of panels, too, is whether yours fits the size. The pattern is written for a 21″ x 43″ panel. Mine did not measure this, it was 41.5″ – 1-1/2″ short. I have some hints for how you can fix it to insure success and almost no one will be able to tell. This is from a fabric line from Northcott, called Soar.

Constructing the Quilt

I spent some time deciding the borders, auditioning them on my design wall. I liked the way the stripe mimicked the background colors and that became my choice.

Auditioning the outer patches on half the quilt (space limitations).

When I went to layout the blocks for the borders I didn’t have enough room on my design board. What’s a quilter gonna do? Improvise! I folded the quilt in half and worked on one side at a time, laying out the pieces then sewing. I also “marked” the double seam pieces with two pins when I was loosely pinning.

Double seam

That way, I knew when I need to do a second 1/4″ seam. And, I didn’t trim it, in case I needed to make changes or it didn’t fit. In this case, it worked very well.

Love when seams look like this!

Why was I doing a double seam?? Remember, I was 1-1/2″ short and need to accommodate that. So I decided to sew an extra 1/4″ seam three times. Once at the top after the first border, another roughly in the middle, and one above the first border. I did this on both sides and both times I added the 5″ squares. Easy peasy and it is pretty hard to tell in the finished quilt. Another option, would have been to insert a coping strip on the bottom if you have a fabric that works…I didn’t.

Quilting

The last big decision was quilting – thread and design decisions needed to be made. I decided on a gray thread for the top (Superior So Fine #408 ) and bottom (Decobob Grey #103), thinking you might see a bit of it on the back, but alas, it wasn’t very showy. The 80 wt Decobob Grey really blended on the back a little more than I thought it would.

The pantograph I choose was Safari Clouds by Anne Bright Designs. I love it….no overstitching and just the right density for this quilt.

Now, what you have been waiting for….the finished quilt!

The days are always a bit grey and it is hard to get a good picture of the colors.

I think this one is among the best of the pictures, you can see some blue in the sky, a bit of sun, but not too much. I really love the way the borders work to expand the panel. My husband (feet shown) wants to hang it but I think it should be his – we both like an extra quilt every once in awhile and this feels like it should be his.

Giveaway

I have a little charm pack for you. Take a look at the Villa Rosa patterns and and in the comments tell me which one you would make (the link sorts the charm square friendly patterns)! This beautiful multicolor charm pack, Fusions Collection, will work well with many panels.

    I have made the Hillside Charm into a quilt top with a panel that was the perfect size. I have two more cut out where the panels are bigger so had to do some math and add some charms but still very easy. I love it!

  2. Karen Shields
    January 20, 2023 / 7:14 AM

    HIllside Charm is my favorite. I like how you added how you adjusted seams to make it work. It’s so hard to find the right size panel for a pattern. Thank you!!

    I really like the Night Light Charm Pack pattern. Thanks for sharing your quilt and thought process in making this quilt.

    Love your quilt. I have a unicorn panel waiting to be made into a baby quilt so Hillside charm should work.

  5. Diane

    I’d like to make Hillside Charm – didn’t think of using ‘regular fabric’ instead of a panel – thats a great idea!

  6. Karen
    January 20, 2023 / 7:28 AM

    I would love to Make S’Witched. Love your quilt.

    January 20, 2023 / 7:47 AM

    Love your quilt! I have several panels that I need to use, so I was happy to see a pattern that features one. Of the other patterns, I love April Showers. It would make a cute baby quilt!

  9. Joy

    Beautiful finish Kathleen!! Clever to use some yardage instead of a panel. I have made Jasmine using a jelly but would love to do it with cut 2.5″ scraps next time.

    I wouldn’t have guessed that was running yardage! What a cool print! And that stripe is the bomb!!! I love your quilt, Kathleen! That cloud quilting is a perfect match, too! One of my fav VR charm square patterns is Dominique.

  15. Sherril McGann

  17. Cherry Vigil
    January 20, 2023 / 8:30 AM

    I think I might just make the Hillside Charm, too. I have 2 Christmas panels that I bought on sale after Christmas. They aren’t the right size but I could alter it to fit like you did. By the way, Jo sent me.

  18. Sandi Scarlett
    January 20, 2023 / 8:45 AM

    I think I would pick Twinkles to make with the charm pack. Your quilt is beautiful and I want to make that with a Christmas panel I have. Thanks for a chance to win.

  19. Paula

    What a beautiful quilt Kathleen! My dad was a watercolor artist so it really speaks to me. I have always liked the Split Charms pattern and would love to make it and include the charm pack you are offering.

    What a stunning quilt you made with the panel! So beautiful, I can see why your husband would want to hang it! I am new to Villa Rosa and this hop will be such fun! I would love to make a few charm square scarves as gifts for this winter for my SILs! So the scarf pattern and I really love Pinwheel Picnic! Thank you for the fun and inspiration!

  26. Donna Munroe

  27. Annie Flaherty

    Kathleen what a great quilt. I love the fabric you used for the panel!!

    Kathleen your quilt is a stunner! I love me a good panel, and the fabrics coordinate beautifully. Pretty quilting too.

    January 20, 2023 / 9:51 AM

    I like the Lil umbrellas pattern. Looks fun to make. Villa Rose patterns always turn out nice and it’s fun to collect them!

  31. sharon Buford
    January 20, 2023 / 9:54 AM

    I would make Penny Candy for my granddaughter. This charm pack are “her colors”

  32. January 20, 2023 / 9:55 AM

    Your quilt is wonderful!! I was just thinking about a panel I saw that would be adorable for a baby, wonder if I can downsize that pattern?
    Lil’ Umbrellas would be perfect with that charm pack.

  33. January 20, 2023 / 10:05 AM

    That is s great one. The panel you chose is just beautiful – I think it should be your husbands too!!

  34. January 20, 2023 / 10:09 AM

    Your blog is very informative. Blog Hop fun. I like all VR patterns, but enjoyed making Cat City

  35. January 20, 2023 / 10:16 AM

    I would like to try Giggles. Love your quilt!!

  36. January 20, 2023 / 10:20 AM

    Nice job. I chose the same pattern to make (very different fabrics). I like your work around for the center size. I’d choose Salute as a pattern.

  37. Anne-Marie
    January 20, 2023 / 10:20 AM

    Your quilt is beautiful and the panto you selected for quilting is the perfect accent.

    I like the Twinkle pattern for charm squares.

  38. January 20, 2023 / 10:21 AM

    Love, love, love your choices for this quilt. Of course you used my favorite colors :-). My first choice of pattern to make would be Nantucket and then Hillside. I really like Villa Rose patterns.

  39. January 20, 2023 / 10:25 AM

    What a gorgeous quilt, Kathleen! I have a panel, and that pattern is on my to do list!

  40. January 20, 2023 / 10:26 AM

    I love your quilt, your fabric selection is perfect and the machine quilt! I was on the Villa Rose website before I read your post and bought several cards- lots of good ones.

  41. Kathy Smihula Cocker
    January 20, 2023 / 10:41 AM

    Love the quilt. I just purchased the Soar fabric so it was great to see it in use. This pattern is great for showing off panels. I have several in my stash to use with the VR Hillside Charm pattern.

  42. rachelsummy
    January 20, 2023 / 10:41 AM

    Love your quilt and enjoyed reading the process and your choices! It takes awhile, doesn’t it? If I got a charm pack my go to VR pattern is La France! Fun and quick to make!! Thanks!!

    Jo sent me. Your Hillside Charm quilt is great. I’m always looking for ideas on how to use panels.

  45. January 20, 2023 / 10:52 AM

    Lovely lovely! I think the multi color pack would work great in Lil Umbrellas’,

  46. J Foor
    January 20, 2023 / 10:57 AM

    That striped fabric is spectacular. The pantograph you chose for the quilting is perfect. I would love to use the charm with the Emma Grace pattern from Villa Rosa. Those colors would soar on almost any background.

  47. Sarah w
    January 20, 2023 / 11:04 AM

    I like the idea of using yardage instead of a panel thanks for describing how you dealt with that differential from the pattern. I think I might try this pattern!

  48. Mayme
    January 20, 2023 / 11:11 AM

    Your quilt is beautiful. I will be looking through my panels to try this pattern out!

  49. January 20, 2023 / 11:12 AM

    I really love the wood grain print; it compliments the panel and other prints perfectly. I agree this should go to your husband, it looks good on him! 🙂

  50. January 20, 2023 / 11:12 AM

    Wow!!! This is gorgeous. I think your husband should keep it too. Northcott is great with their fabrics depicting nature of all sorts. They use such gorgeous color palettes. Your idea about adjusting for a smaller panel was interesting. I wouldn’t have thought of it. Happy that you joined the hop Kathleen!

  51. Cindy Berry
    January 20, 2023 / 11:17 AM

    I would make the Snow Goose pattern – so cute! but they are all nice patterns. I have a few of her patterns in my collection and will pull them out soon.

  52. Julie In MN
    January 20, 2023 / 11:34 AM

    Beautiful fabric choices and appropriate panto. I don’t quite understand the double seam technique. I would make the Nantucket with my Kaffe Fasset collection. BTW Jo sent me!

    January 20, 2023 / 11:49 AM

  58. Rochelle Summers
    January 20, 2023 / 12:11 PM

    Thanks for the tips on adjusting things to fit when panel isn’t the right size. I’ve looked at those patterns. I met Pat many years ago and she quilted several quilts for me before she started this business. I like Twinkle and Penny Candy to use with the charms.

  59. January 20, 2023 / 12:20 PM

    I think I would make “Twinkle”. Yours turned out lovely! Also, looks comfy. Thank you.

  60. Barb K
    January 20, 2023 / 12:23 PM

  62. Lana Drum

    January 20, 2023 / 12:33 PM

    Kathleen, your Hillside Charm quilt is awesome! Love the wintery feel! Just goes to show that any fabric collection or grouping works in this VRD pattern. Thanks sew much for being part of the Blog Hop. I’d probably make Baby Zip Tease, possibly with a solid black background to make the charm squares pop.

  64. Molly
    January 20, 2023 / 12:35 PM

    Ooh I love the charm pack colors. I think I would make Cascade with a background like Riley Blake blossom rainbow.

    Beautiful fabric choices, they would be a big hit in my household. My next Villa rosa pattern on the cutting block is ‘wistful’ it will be a QOV – air force variety.

  67. January 20, 2023 / 1:13 PM

    Love the stripe border print, Kathleen! You did a wonderful job with the panel…no wonder your Hubby wants it! 🙂
    I like the Giggles pattern, and Twinkle, too. And Penny Candy, and Goody Goody Gumdrops. Ha, ha! Can’t pick a favorite!

  70. Teri

    I love those colors and that’s a great idea for a panel. Quite an ingenius trick to take it up like you did! I’m a sucker for stars, so I would love to make Twinkle! So glad Jo is taking part in this and shared all the link – and I get to see so many great quilts!

  74. Margaret Barrett
    January 20, 2023 / 2:06 PM

    I would make Baby Zip Tease! At the moment, I’m making baby quilts for an overseas military hospital. The charm pack looks like a perfect match for thte pattern.

  75. Naomi B

    Hi Kathleen! Yowza – 79 comments! I love what you did with this panel. Especially the striped border fabric – that was a great choice. If I were to win, I love the Lil’ Umbrellas. I think they should be nice and bright! No need to reply to me – you’ll be busy. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    I really like the Hillside Charm pattern and your choice of fabrics. I have eyed that type of print for quite a while. Out of my stash, I think I would make it out of some Venice prints and panel. I agree with someone else about the double seam – I am confused about the how, where and why…

  86. Sharon Halsey
    January 20, 2023 / 3:55 PM

I finally had to put “comments” in the “find it” section and was able to find it from there. Why is it so hard to find where to comment? Is it me??? (Wouldn’t surprise me!)

    I’d like to make this Hillside Charm. A children’s panel I have would look great using this and will make a good charity quilt.

    I’d have to decide between giggles and lollipop
    Your quilt is gorgeous, I do have some panels that are in need of frames/borders.

    I love the soar fabric and made a table runner out of it at Christmas. It’s a toss up between Honey Buns with a dark background fabric or Goody Goody Gumdrops

    I like your website. Hillside Charm is my fav pattern with Christmas fabrics. I absolutely love the blue outdoors quilt you made using the Hillside Charm pattern. I love the outdoors and may have to try the blue one!

    I like Hillside Charm pattern. I am liking the panel you used in your quilt.

    I really like the Night Light version shown for the kit, with the black and white 4-patches! I love, love, love your version of Hillside Charm with the blues and the gorgeous scene! My husband would LOVE it too! So it might just end up a gift for him! Thanks for sharing!

    I thought I had commented on the first day but I can’t find it. I love your version on Hillside Charms. I would say I like the VRD Hillside Charm the best. I like all the patterns.

    I like what you did with Hillside Charms. I have the panel w the deer. Great suggestion regarding fitting the size.

    I think I would like to do Hillside with some lovely Asian fabric that I am reluctant to cut up and spoil the flow of the design. I appreciate knowing different ways to adjust for sizes outside the pattern’s parameters.

    Love what you did with the panel. I appreciate you hints on making it fit.

    Love the Soar collection, and it’s perfect for this quilt. You did a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

    Now that is one beautiful set of blues! I have quite a few and like them, but I don’t have Nana’s Aprons and that’s what I would choose this time. Thanks for the chance to win … anything! LOL
