Thunder Bridge – Finished

Today I have my finished Thunder Bridge quilt to share with you.  This quilt has been tucked away for months just waiting to be photographed, and I finally got around to it over Christmas break.


This quilt is named Thunder Bridge for the bridge where I took pictures of the quilt top a little over a year ago.  You can read the original blog post about the quilt top here.


I went for a very blue/green color scheme, but this pattern could work with so many different colors.  I think a black and white look would be so great, too.


All of the fabric in this quilt is from Amy Butler and a lot of it, if not most of it, is from some of her older collections.


I’m a huge Amy Butler fan and those collections from years ago are some of my favorites.


I didn’t have a plan for the back of this quilt so the top sat tucked away for a while before I put the whole thing together.  Then it dawned on me I had the perfect backing fabric!  In my stash was yardage of Amy Butler Belle fabric that just happens to go perfectly with the front of the quilt.


I actually originally purchased the yardage for a different quilt top but it goes so much better with this one.  I’m glad I hadn’t used it yet.


That’s another finished quilt in the books!  I took this one home with me to my parents’ house over Christmas to photograph and I had to leave it behind.  My suitcase was so full I couldn’t fit it back in.  Guess it’s going to stay there now!

Note: This quilt pattern is available in my Etsy store.  It is only the second pattern I’ve ever written so I’m only charging $5. That said, the pattern includes fabric requirements, assembly instructions, and photos.  I have listed it in my Etsy shop and you can DOWNLOAD THE PATTERN HERE.
