Connected Throw Quilt - In Sunshine Terrace!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Today I'm sharing with you a Connected Throw quilt I made with the quilt kit from Connecting Threads.  This is a quick and easy quilt pattern.



Fabric Selection

The fabrics are from the Sunshine Terrace fabric collection at Connecting Threads.  It's a beautiful collection of blues and yellows in varying hues that add a lot of depth to the quilt pattern.  Connected would look very different if the fabrics in each colorway didn't have variations in hue.


Binding Love!

When choosing fabric placement for quilt kits I curate for Connecting Threads, if there is a striped fabric in the collection, I use it for the binding.  It frames the quilt nicely with a pop.  If a stripe isn't available, the binding is a bold color that completes the quilt design.


And the background fabric!  Did you notice it's not plain white?!?  Nope, it's a white with tiny metallic gold dots.  🌝  Sweetness indeed!


Longarm Quilting Design

Connected is quilted on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher in a design called Vibrance in natural white thread.  It seems to give an illusion of water.  💦



Strip Pieced

Connected is entirely strip pieced; no sewing together individual squares here!  Sew strips together to make strips sets following the fabric placement given in the pattern, sub-cut segments, then sew the segments together to make blocks.  Quick and easy!  

Strip piecing is included in all of my quilt patterns where it's practical.  Life is about making more quilts, so let's make them more quickly!  ⏳⏰


The Connected quilt kit is available at Connecting Threads.  The kits have been restocked once already and are selling very quickly and will likely not be restocked again.  



Jelly Roll, Fat Quarters, and 1/4-yard Cuts

Connected can be made with 2-1/2" jelly roll strips, fat quarters, and 1/4-yard cuts - all three options are included in the pattern.  



All the Sizes!

The Connected quilt pattern includes all the sizes - 6 - Baby, Lap, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.  I'm all about spoilin' you and creating patterns with real value, just for you. 💗



Remember to grab your Connected quilt kit before stock runs out at Connecting Threads!  Get it right here.

I like the striped binding too! I was thinking a pink and purple version would be cute.
