This winter quilt pattern is the newest addition to the Wren Collective family, and it has been one of my favorite projects to date. It's the perfect project to make and snuggle up under during the cold winter months. Plus, it's fat quarter friendly!
Cold Front: The Cover Version
To create this version, I reached deep into my fabric stash and mixed and matched colors that gave off a fun retro vibe. The background is a very light gray linen blend for some great subtle texture.
Though there is not a kit for this exact version (several of these fabrics are old and now hard to find), Amy of Sewtopia put together a kit that is inspired by this version. We brainstormed to come up with a really awesome version. It might even be better than mine!
Tawny of Simply Fabulous Quilting worked her magic and really brought these mittens to life. We opted for her puff batting and a braided pantograph (that she designed!) for the perfect puffy-mitten look.
The following two images were graciously taken by my best friend, Autumn Waldman Photography. She puts up with my awkwardness and is simply the best. If you're in the Omaha area and looking for a top-notch photographer, I can't recommend her enough!
Cold Front: The Mauve + Rust Version
This toned-down version of Cold Front has an extra cozy and luxe feel. I opted to pre-wash all of the fabric prior to piecing the quilt top since it is linen-heavy. This gives it the feel of a lived in sweatshirt, and it will just continue to get softer with every wash!
Andrea of Cottoneer has a kit based on this version; she always comes up with the coziest fabric combinations!
Kaitlyn from Knot and Thread gave this quilt the best overall texture using a classic Baptist fan design. That pantograph never gets old!
Here a couple more photos of me being pretty awkward in front of the camera for good measure. (Thanks, Autumn!)
