Ikat is a pattern by Brigitte Heitland featuring fabric from her Fragile collection, one of my favorite fabric collections ever. I've made so many quilts with it, including Fragile, Paradox, and Critical Sunshine, and that's just the ones I've finished quilting! What can I say, I'm a sucker for black and gold.

Ikat was one of those quilts that I really wanted to have, but not necessarily to make. Piecing this quilt was a royal pain, due to the jelly rolls. But once I was done with it, I really loved the quilt top, and I knew it'd be as fun to quilt as it was a pain to piece.

Since the fabric is quite busy, I kept the quilting very simple in most of the blocks with just dot-to-dot quilting.

I decided to quilt all the white based blocks differently with some swirls. However, this was a real challenge on some of those blocks because I couldn't really see what I was doing.

I absolutely love, love, love this quilt! However, I'm done with jelly rolls. Once I get through my current stash (which will admittedly take awhile) I will probably never buy any more ... at least not from Moda. The pretty jelly roll packages are such a siren song, so I hope I can resist in the future! May this blog post serve a reminder to me, though ...


  1. I love everything about this quilt! The design, the fabric, and the quilting!

  2. Wow, this is a really pretty quilt, Liz! I'm with you on jelly rolls! They are so tempting, and then when I work with them, I have regrets.

  3. I hear you about jelly rolls. They are so beautiful to look at and such a pain to use. Ikat is stunning, and once again your quilting elevates the finish into a work of art. :)

  4. Jelly rolls are a siren song! I did buy one this year, and now I am regretting it a bit. The quilting on this piece is just perfect. I like the occasional swirls and the curve bits in the orange squares. You can see just how luscious it all is on the back!

  5. Great quilting! I keep coming back to see the detail work you do.
