My love of knitting and quilting cross paths with Cables!

It’s Stashin’ with Stephanie time again! This month’s new fat quarter friendly pattern is inspired by this month’s featured fabric, Delilah by Esther Fallon Lau for Clothworks.

Cables was inspired by my love of knitting and fear of knitting cables. The classic stitch pattern look of crossing yarns is created in quilt form through careful placement of fabrics according to color value, so it is a great pattern for mixing low volume and dark prints.

The majority of the quilt is strip-pieced, making it a fast project. I got my lap-sized version done from start to finish in six days, including the quilting … and that was with a sick toddler at home with me.

I love how Cables turned out with Delilah. The collection is beautiful and sophisticated, but presented a design challenge with equal amounts of light and dark prints. The cable design allowed me to separate the light prints from the background by using them in the cable centers, so they could stand out and live their best life.
