Sleeping Porch Project for Heather Ross

This blog post is a little late.  But as they say, better late than never!

This project started last May, when fabric designer Heather Ross asked me to make a quilt for her new fabric collection, Sleeping Porch.  I’ve mentioned this on Instagram but I’ve never officially shared it on the blog.  And now that Sleeping Porch is shipping to retailers, I thought it was about time to write about it!

Heather had a group of us create quilts from Denyse Schmidt’s book Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration for her new line.  She asked me to make the Ocean Waves pattern and use three different prints from the collection along with the solid orange color for the front and the solid yellow color for the back.

The result is a very bold, striking quilt, which I love.

Please excuse this bad, not color corrected photo, but you can see how I used mostly the purple snail and floral prints and sprinkled in the green Peonies.


All the quilts are featured in the look book that Windham put out for the release of the fabric, and the photos were taken at Heather’s house upstate New York (insert all the heart eye emoji’s).

You can see the entire look book HERE.

I love the photo spread of my Ocean Waves quilt.

I’m so happy I had the opportunity to work on this project.  The fabric is beautiful and Denyse’s Ocean Waves pattern is such a classic.  I think I have to make an Ocean Waves quilt for myself one day.

I recently finished another quilt project for a fabric designer with a new line coming out that I can’t wait to tell you about, just as soon as I can!

Before I go, as a reminder, I had Sleeping Porch fabric left from this project and I made a Churn Dash quilt that you can see HERE.
