Trinket Sew Along

My Finished Trinket Quilt Top

Welcome to my Trinket Sew Along quilt! Beginning March 10th we will be posting one block per day on Instagram. The layout that I selected will have 218 pieced blocks, and 219 solid blocks. I will be creating 5 of the same blocks at a time, and then select my favorite 18 blocks to make at the end to finish out the 218 blocks.

I am using the Alison Glass Kaleidoscope fabric collection, and have selected 36 of the 40 colors for the pieced blocks, and one color for the background. The fabrics came to me unlabeled, so I have tried to match them up as best as possible with the colors I see on the computer screen and in real life in the fabric – they may not be correct as to what Alison Glass named them on her end, but at least I am consistent with each use!

I will be posting one image per day on Instagram, but will post all the blocks here as I go through the weeks, and label the colors used in case you are wondering.

You can find out more about the Trinket Sew Along here.

Assuming I have the colors labeled correctly, for the pieced blocks I am using the following colors: Cherry, Tomato, Poppy, Strawberry, Salmon, Shrimp, Persimmon, Carrot, Sunflower, Citrus, Goldenrod, Lichen, Pine, Grass, Fern, Opal, Aquamarine, Dragonfly, Beetle, Peacock, Blue Bonnet, Sapphire, Iris, Blue Jay, Hydrangea, Periwinkle, Lavender, Thistle, Foxglove, Cosmos, Dahlia, Peony, Pomegranate, Urchin, Raisin, Beet.

When I decided to create this quilt a few months ago, I came up with a layout idea based on the 19 x 23 block layout, and using 36 of the 40 colors for the paper pieced squares. I will be using Raven for the background checkerboard squares. Probably Raven for the binding too, as I want the focus on the squares.

With my 36 selected colors, I would create six blocks of each as a Base Color (i.e. base color Cherry, base color Fern, etc.), with the last 2 colors having 7 each to make the total of 218. I am also making five of each of the 40 blocks, plus an extra 17 of my choosing, and the bonus ribbon block. Here is my color grid:

And I should mention that I took the Kaleidoscope colors, selected the closest Kona cotton colors, and used those Kona colors that I have saved in the computer to come up with this layout – these colors will NOT be exact to the final Kaleidoscope colors.

And now that the Trinket Sew Along is over, and my quilt top is complete, I went back and labeled the actual layout – a little different than my planned version, but I think with how the colors in the blocks play together, it works! Remember that the solid colors shown were my base color selections, and then the accent colors to go with each block.
