On this episode of Love of Quilting, Angela Huffman and Sara Gallegos take direction from dyeing techniques! The jewel-like quilt design is inspired by Asian ikat dyeing, and the colors take advantage of ombre fabrics. Constructed with paper piecing and finished with freemotion quilting, Sapphire Ikat is a to-dye-for quilt!
Angela’s quilt is based on a pattern by Rebbecca Smith, called Emerald Ikat which we originally published in Love of Quilting May/June 2014. Angela’s version appears in the 3400 series pattern eBooklet and Love of Quilting January/February 2020 (available December 2019).
