Pattern Testing: Bright Sky by Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts

I've been pattern testing for Alyce over at Blossom Heart Quilts. Her pattern Bright Sky is for a wonderful giant one-block quilt. I had been wanting to make a giant one-block quilt for a while now, so when Alyce gave me the opportunity to try out her pattern I couldn't resist.


I decided to use low volume fabrics and I'm glad I did because I love the result. I'm planning on using the stripy fabric for the binding, I think it will give it the right finish. A very enjoyable pattern to make. The fabrics are all Dear Stella. Don't ask me how I managed to get it so messy after I'd just ironed it!

Don't miss the other pattern testers versions at Blossom Heart Quilts because this pattern is so versatile. It's incredible how the fabrics change the final result completely. Alyce's version is also her Pantone Quilt Challenge entry and it's stunning!
