Formation Throw Quilt in Quartz Metallic!

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


Formation is a minimalist quilt pattern that is perfect for quilts for guys.  The more masculine colors of tan, gray, and brown are perfect for this quilt pattern.

Connecting Threads has kitted Formation in their Quartz Metallic Tonals fabric collection!  The quilt kit is available right here.


The Quilt Kit


The Formation quilt kit includes all fabrics for the quilt top and binding to make a Throw size quilt in the fabrics shown.  The prints have metallic gold in them for a special touch, but it isn't overwhelming at all.  Grays, tans, browns, on a background of creamy oyster fabric.  


Fabric Selection


Formation is a great quilt pattern to use your favorite prints that are just too hard to cut into small pieces or strips.  They can be featured in the large flying geese blocks and sparkle on the background.  

Fat quarters are perfect for this quilt pattern, and when the background fabric contrasts well, the quilt turns out so beautiful.  :)


Longarm Quilting


This Formation quilt was made by my sewist, Kare, and quilted and bound by me.  

The longarm quilting design is Zing, a fun design that echoes the flying geese blocks, quilted in cream-colored thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.



The Formation Quilt Pattern


The Formation pattern includes five sizes - Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.  The Baby size has only one group of geese across the quilt, and all other sizes have two.

Flying Geese blocks are easier to make with a FG trimming tool, and I recommend the Wing Clipper, available here and here.  This brand of trimmer has many sizes and includes the size made in this quilt pattern.

Formation is a fat quarter friendly quilt pattern, so it's so easy to use your stash.
