This Mae quilt variation came to me while I was designing the Mae quilt and making samples for the pattern release.
I knew that I wanted to make a version in Warp and Weft from Ruby Star Society. Warp and Weft is this gorgeous collection of woven fabric; it is the softest fabric I’ve ever sewn with.
The moment Warp and Weft arrived on my doorstep, I knew that I had to utilize ALL of it. I couldn’t choose just one fabric for the half square triangle component in the pattern.
I opted to use four different fabrics for my half square triangles, creating a scrappy diagonal stripe look.
The graphic below breaks down the fabric requirements for the half square triangles on the version I made. This version is a variation on the Mae Quilt Pattern. It can be found here in the Wren Collective pattern shop.
If you’d like to make a similar striped look like I did, refer to the first or last photos of this blog post for placement. Or, for a completely scrappy look, place them randomly throughout the quilt top!
Sarah of Stitch Mode Quilts did the amazing quilting on this Mae. She is amazing to work with!
If you make a Mae Quilt, please share on social media using the hashtags #themaequilt and #wrencollectivepatterns. I would love to see!
Mae has a sister pattern, Marcella. I have shared some more photos of the Mae and Marcella quilts in a blog post HERE.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Mae Quilt variation! It is always fun to put a completely scrappy spin on quilts. Scrappy quilts make me think of the quilts the generations before us created.
Until next time,
