Crochet and fabric quilt

Crochet and fabric Quilt 3My mother in law Nola was visiting this week, and brought with her this lovely crochet and fabric creation, which she has just finished…

Crochet and fabric Quilt 2Isn’t it beautiful? And isn’t she clever!

Crochet and fabric QuiltI love that it looks almost antique…

Crochet and fabric QuiltI don’t have an exact pattern to share with you I’m afraid. It came in a quilting pack with all the supplies so I can’t share it here. However if you search online you will find some very similar patterns.

To get you started here’s a good tutorial for making the squares and crocheting them together. The three layer rose is added afterwards when the quilt squares are all joined together… here’s a nice pattern.

Hope you are having a wonderful week! J xox

      I loved this quilt at first sight. So, I’m making one. I was wondering what thread or yarn was used. I settled on Aunt Lydias fashion 5 crochet cotton, but their color choices aren’t nearly as pretsy or subtle as this one. Can you send me in the right direction? Thank you.

        The pattern for this quilt says to use DMC Babylo 3 ply Crochet Thread in the 50 gram balls. I am almost finished with my first attempt at this quilt and I am using Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread size 3 in natural and it is looking very nice so far. I think I will order the Babylo for the next one I do though.

        Thanks Diana so much for answering my question! I’m using the Aunt Lydias crochet cotton size 3 also. You mentioned that the “pattern calls for DMC Babylo 3 ply ” but I haven’t found THE pattern. The pattern I am using (the only one I can find) calls for fingering weight baby yarn and I didn’t want to use that. Can you tell me where to find the pattern you are using? I am almost finished with the first one and I’m anxious to do another one more like the original one that I fell in love with. Thanks so much!

        The original kit with the pattern and fabric was available at http://cottageflair.co.nz but they no longer have the kit. When I called I had to order the pattern and they mailed it to me. But they do have a pdf download of the pattern now on their website as several people mentioned in the comments below and it’s about $12.98 USD. I had a difficult time finding the original fabric because the actual fabric is more soft and muted than the colors in the photos above. The fabric line is called Moda’s Roses and Chocolate by Sentimental Studios. It’s out of print now but you might get lucky. I bought the Roses and Chocolate and then bought several colorways of the Lecien Antique Rose line as I thought it would make a pretty quilt in this style. Good luck!

        Almost finished my crochet and fabric quilt. Not as pretty as the original I saw on the Green Dragonfly. It takes many many hours to make. I find that I had to be DEDICATED and DETERMINED to finish. It’s a good project to work on in the evenings watching TV or very portable to take to kids sporting events or doctor appointments, airports, etc. I’d like to make another one with more muted colors. I used various rose prints in greens and pinks and Aunt Lydias size 3 crochet cotton in the color Sage. I’d like to try a smaller ply cotton next time. Also, I used a peel and stick measuring tape to place my base stitches around the squares.

    Thank you. I will be making one. It will probably take most of the school year, my nephew graduates next year and this will be his graduation quilt. (for his mom). I will print his photos on fabric, and crochet them together. I can use 1 photo on each side and will get to pick more photos.

    It is so beautiful Janette, it brings back happy memories of my own Mum-in-law, who taught me how to crochet and sew. She once made a quilt and matching curtains from squares of material that she cut out of oddments – they are so fashionable now. Your Mum–in-law is a talented lady, just like mine was, the quilt will make a well-loved heirloom. Thanks for sharing. x

    I love this, the colors, the technique, everything! It was just beautiful and I’m sure it will be treasured for years to come!
    I’ve got fabric for blankets just waiting for a project like this. I didn’t have a specific technique in mind. My inital thought was to just crochet edging on the fabric, but thank you so much for sharing your Mother-In-Laws patch-work and the links that you included. I now have a much better idea of how to proceed.

    Thank you so much for posting these photos. What a lovely quilt! And thanks to those who posted where the pattern could be found. I ordered the pattern but they were out of the kits. Can anyone who bought the kit tell me the manufacturer and designer of the fabric. I have searched for the fabric but nothing comes close so perhaps knowing the name of the fabric line will help. The colors and patterns are so gorgeous in this quilt.

    Of course, I pinned this gorgeous quilt, and the wheels started turning. I purchased an old Arch quilt that is “seriously ill” , but was too beautiful to pass up for $8! After seeing this beauty, I think I’ll cut it into squares and make a quilt like this out of it! I have a beautiful xroxhet lace pattern that I can use to join the squares! Thank you for sharing – several people have pinned my pin!

    Thank you so much for sharing this. Your mother in law did a lovely job to make such a beautiful quilt. My sister (the crocheter) and I (the quilter) are looking to work on this together as a sister’s quilt. We might have to make two since we don’t want to have to squabble over who gets the finished quilt.

    By any chance, do you have a pattern for the crocheted piece in your “logo”. My 88 year old mother has fallen in love with it and would love to try the pattern. She still makes baby quilts for great grand babies and they are loved by all, especially the babies.

    Thank you.
