TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about ANOTHER ALTERNATE LAYOUT!

I shared this quilt yesterday, but wanted to post a full version of it this morning, information below. :) Here is alternate layout example two! This one comes from an idea I had for these blocks from the start. I wanted a version with a more open layout: fewer total pieced blocks with more negative space around them to create a larger quilt and using the same fabric for the pieced block backgrounds and the main background so that the little bits could stand out on their own without the checkerboard effect. I chose the fabrics for each block from the Road Trip fabric collection, taking care to match each selection with the template pieces and sent the big stack to @kariejewell who was kind enough to assemble the blocks for us. Karie send back the finished blocks for Chen and me to figure out the layout, spacing, and assembly of the top. It looks so different, and I love how it turned out! We will share the details of the cut sizes and assembly for this version over on the Trinket SAL landing page soon, but it is also something that can be flexible where you work it out as you go. - Alison

TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about AN ALTERNATE LAYOUT!

This is just one example, but it is a great one! Our friend and copy/technical editor/general word supporter/question answerer here at AG, Leslie, @lelliebunny, worked like crazy to get her beautiful Trinket quilt done early so we could share it as another example! This lovely image is the quilt top. It is off getting quilted and we will share more photos after it is bound.
Leslie’s version has modifications to the block size and a different approach to the concept of background. The first change she made was to print/copy the blocks at 125% to create a larger quilt without adding any extra blocks (if you do this, don’t forget to keep your seam allowances at 1/4” because increasing the size of the template also changes the printed seam allowance). Leslie followed a similar color gradation as the cover quilt: a diagonal progression in color order. She also chose the same Kaleidoscope in Raven for the background squares, but the big shift she made was to use one color (Kaleidoscope in Charcoal) as a unified pieced block background. Doesn’t this change the look of the quilt dramatically? I love it! There are so many possibilities with this quilt, and we are very excited to see what you will come up with!

TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about LAYOUT!

We think the cover quilt is beautiful, and I know a lot of you will probably want to make your quilt in a similar way. That’s great, go for it! The Trinket pattern is also an open ended resource to use the blocks in different ways. We are going to share a couple of alternate layouts as inspiration for your own creativity and distinct choices TOMORROW MORNING, so check back in the am! Maybe you will come up with a fun, new layout? We are excited to see your creation!

For the cover quilt, ninety-seven Trinket blocks are combined with ninety-eight fabric squares to create a checkerboard design in a throw size, but the blocks are very flexible! Add, subtract, and rearrange blocks to create a variety of designs and layouts. The pattern includes an Alternative Sizes chart with suggested size options/blocks needed/background fabric requirements. It does not include fabric requirements for the pieced blocks. Check out our post on FABRIC CHOICES and AMOUNTS for information that topic!

The ‘30 - 40 fat quarters for the pieced blocks’ as listed on the pattern back is based on the cover quilt layout and size. The finished size is 52 x 60 and includes 97 pieced blocks (2 of each of the 40 blocks + 17 additional blocks of the maker’s choosing). If you choose a different size/layout/block style, your fabric needs will change. The key is having a mix of color that you love that you can add to if needed. This creates a more freestyle piecing/design, but it is staying true to the spirit of this pattern.
Please take a look at all of our 'let's talk about' posts. Like, comment, and ask questions because we are here to help and encourage each other. Your engagement with the posts will help more people see the information, and they may even help to answer questions that other people didn’t even know they had.

TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about FABRIC choices and amounts!

A word about fabric choices and quantities: It is nearly impossible to give an exact amount of fabric needed to make the pieced blocks in this pattern because it all depends on what you choose. The hope is that you will enjoy the fun of picking color combinations that you love for each block to create a quilt that is as distinct as you. The designing is part of the fun!

The cover quilt is shown in the Kaleidoscope collection by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics. We started with a fat quarter of each of Kaleidoscope’s forty fabrics to make the throw size quilt. We also used Mariner Cloth in Raven, a woven black and white stripe, for binding and a bit of accent in the blocks. Although there was fabric left over, the quantity and variety of colors provided the freedom to enjoy making each block. The idea is for you to create something you love that is infused with personal meaning through the process of making.

When you are gathering fabrics, we suggest pulling together a group that you love! Colors, prints, texture - it’s all fair game, and scraps work well too. Let it be open enough so that you can add to it, if needed. Forty fat quarters is plenty, but a good variety is key!

TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about design INSPIRATION!

Today, on Instagram (and in a soon to be sent newsletter - go sign up!), we are sharing some important information about the Trinket quilt that might have an impact on your fabric/layout choices. I would really like you to look at the pattern and take a bit of time to think about how you would like to approach this quilt - to make it your own! Please take a look at ALL of today’s posts. Like, comment, and ask questions because we are here to help and encourage each other. Your engagement with the posts will help more people see the information, and they may even help to answer questions that other people didn’t even know they had!

A trinket is typically thought of as a small item of little worth. Its value comes from what it means and the memories it holds. The forty blocks in this pattern are little trinkets in four categories: lines, shapes, things, and life. The Trinket quilt is about the process and journey of creating. It is an opportunity to let your mind wander as you connect your own meaning to each block. Memories of the past, present, or dreams for the future: the meaning is yours to create. P.S. Happy Valentines! xo - Alison

A little story behind the design - before I had kids, we wanted to be parents, but it wasn’t happening. So, I did what people sometimes do - collect a little stash of things ‘in the hope of’. Daydream is reminiscent of a time period and a tiny dress that ended up being for my daughter, a lovely black dress with little pink flowers. - Alison
