Wylie’s Way Quilt – Behind the Seams

819 1024 admin

When I saw the Wylie’s Way Quilt Pattern on Kaitlyn’s (@knotandthread) Instagram I KNEW I had to make it!

I immediately knew that I wanted to make a throw size quilt for my living room, that I am in the process of decorating right now. The accent wall in the living room will be deep forest green. After seeing Studio DIY’s bathroom on her Instagram with the deep green tile and pink floors I knew I wanted to use that same color palette in my quilt!

I choose to use Kona Hunter Green for the background, 4 light pinks for the diamonds, and Silver for the accent color. Superbuzzy has been my go-to recently for fabric purchases and luckily they had everything I need in stock and were able to ship it to me very quickly! 

One of the things I LOVE about this pattern is the simplicity of the cuts you have to make. I was able to cut the entire quilt in one night after work. There are only two different sizes of pieces to cut which makes cutting them go very quickly! 

This quilt is also mostly half rectangle triangles. Which are just as easy to make as half-square triangles, they just take a little bit more thought when cutting them. I marked my ruler with tape so I could easily cut my pieces without having to think through each piece as closely. 

I was able to sew all of the blocks and piece the top in about a day and a half. (My quilt guild @ocmqg had a virtual retreat so I was able to spend the entire weekend quilting)

I decided that I wanted to quilt this top myself with my Free Motion Quilting Rulers. I created a diamond pattern in the green diamonds and a star pattern in the pink diamonds. These point to point patterns both gave the quilt an art deco feel that I am just in love with. Since the quilt is only a throw I was able to work on most of the green diamonds all day Sunday during our retreat and then finish up the rest of the quilting after work for a couple of days! 

All in all, I am THRILLED with how this quilt turned out and I can’t wait until my walls are painted to see the complete picture come together.
