The Goldie Quilt Pattern I designed back in June of 2022 but didn't release until December of 2022. And I had actually made this mock up idea of Goldie in the Rejoice palette with the original hopes of making it one of the samples that specifically would be part of the Rejoice Bundle release. Alas, the timing didn't work out with our busy summer of work, travel and moving into the studio. But, I had to use Rejoice for the cover quilt.
I love that the Rejoice Bundle is 20 FQs and is perfect to pair with Goldie. The fabrics glow and mix and match effortlessly. Also, it's the only Rejoice sample I used that uses Kona White as the background fabric.
I really enjoyed the process of cutting and mixing and matching this quilt together. I had about 4 months between finishing the Rejoice Bundle samples and starting this Goldie quilt. It was like running into a friend you haven't seen in a bit.
When I cut a Goldie quilt out, I organize all of my pieces by FQ. So they all stay together as I am cutting what is needed according to the pattern.
Now, I break apart the FQ pieces into like sizes. So all the same type of cuts now get organized into their piles. And from here, this is where I mix and match everything together block by block.
The first thing sewn together when making a Goldie Quilt are the Cornerstone 9 Patch units. They are the small 9 patches that are the center of every block and in the final sashing when assembly the quilt all together. These two colors from the bundle are Kona Pepper and Kona Leather.
From here, it's about working block by block. I really enjoy working this way as I get to see the quilt start to build itself one completed block at a time.
Here are two of my favorite individual Goldie blocks.
Then it was time to play with the final block layout. I haven't set up a good design wall yet in the studio so I just laid this out on the floor.
Next up is making all the long sashing pieces and assembling it all together. My only suggestion is to not sew the same color within a single 3 piece long strip. Otherwise, just have fun and don't over think this part!
We snapped a few photos around the outside of our building of this Goldie and I love how it turned out so much.
Emily of So Sunny Quilts worked her magic again on this Goldie quilt! We chose the Starlight pantograph and I love the subtle yet constant movement the design creates. No harsh lines but it is geometric.
We bound this Goldie in Kona Creamsicle and backed it in Kona Pickle.
Our little mini living room set up downstairs is turning out so fun. I absolutely love the white and black checked rug. The coffee table was found at a vintage store here in Portland.
We also decided to throw in the Bella Solids Goldie into this set up and showcase two Goldies in one shot!
Then Redford got in a few of the shots.
The Goldie Rejoice is made using the 20 piece Rejoice Bundle and 1 1/4 yard of Kona White. The Bundle and Goldie Rejoice kits for this specific quilt are in the shop!
