Enter a magical forest where flowers bloom in moonlight and forest creatures roam through the trees with the Quilted Joy Exclusive Nocturnal Forest Quilt Kit!
Our first Exclusive Quilt Kit!
Nocturnal Forest is our first exclusive quilt kit with an original pattern designed by Angela Huffman. The piecing uses common blocks and shapes like half square triangles, nine patches, and hourglass blocks. The easy to follow instructions in the included pattern will show how to quickly make some of these common shapes, making the pattern perfect for beginner quilters and advanced quilters looking for a quick project.
The quilt’s center block uses the Nocturnal Fabric Panel designed by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics. This panel has four equal sections containing an animal drawn by Stacie Bloomfield. Our quilt pattern only uses one of these corners, so you can pick which of your favorite forest friends you want to use. Will your quilt have trotting foxes? The inquisitive rabbits? The roaming bear? And don’t forget the patchwork owl. We also carry some of the beautiful precuts from the same Nocturnal fabric line!
Try one of the three suggested quilting patterns
While designing this quilt, we took special care to consider how you might want to quilt it. You’ll notice there’s oodles of open, negative space. These areas are perfect for showing off your free motion quilting skills! And for those with chronic “stand and stare” syndrome, we’ve also included ideas for how to quilt Nocturnal Forest in the pattern! So often, quilt patterns just say “quilt as desired,” but that phrase always leaves us wondering what are our options?
In the Nocturnal Forest quilt pattern we have included three potential quilting designs for three different skill levels: beginner, confident beginner, and more advanced. No matter how you feel about your skill, there is something you can try. You can even pick and choose design elements from each of the three quilting suggestions to create a design that’s unique to your skills and style! Be sure to watch the video above to see Angela’s quilting design process for our Nocturnal Forest quilt sample.
Finish your quilt with backing and thread from Quilted Joy
The Nocturnal Forest Quilt Kit comes with all the fabric you’ll need to make your quilt, the pattern, and quilting suggestions. But why stop there? We wanted to make sure this would be an easy project to kick off your new year, but also an easy project for you to finish! We’re offering this kit in two options: the standard kit with all the items mentioned above, or the deluxe kit with two machine quilting rulers. The included rulers are perfect for quilting your Nocturnal Forest quilt with the suggested quilting designs in the pattern!
And because we love our thread, we also have a coordinating Nocturnal Forest Thread Bundle! This bundle includes the three Glide threads and one Affinity variegated thread Angela used to quilt her Nocturnal Forest quilt. We made sure to choose a mix of threads that will either blend or shine well with the fabrics. And of course, you can’t quilt your quilt without a backing fabric! We also have a Nocturnal Forest Backing Kit available with an adorable grey owl print fabric. You won’t even need to seam your backing fabric together, it’s the perfect size as is for both sit down and stand up longarm quilters!
