Introducing: The Pine Point Quilt

Pine Point

Just in time for some holiday sewing… it is my pleasure to officially introduce you to the Pine Point Quilt

This modern pattern design is a celebration of the connection of humanity (note the way the blocks seem to point and flow into the next) along with a nod to nature. Keep reading to find out more about what inspired this pattern for me. 

It’s the perfect quilt for confident beginners with multiple customization options to create your own unique vision. 

You can find the PDF pattern here and the paper pattern here!

I’d love to tell you all about how this quilt got its name.

Some of my best memories of being together with family and friends have happened on a hiking trail in Whiteshell Provincial Park called… you guessed it… Pine Point! It’s a moderate hike with magnificent views of the river and three sets of rapids (including Point Point Rapids). It’s truly the perfect spot for a picnic and a day of taking in the beautiful Canadian Shield scenery. 

I grew up camping in the same area as the trail and have hiked it at least once a summer for my entire life. It was a favourite activity for my family and is now a favourite for my own kids! If friends visit in the summer, we love taking them on the Pine Point trail because it’s truly magical.

It only felt right to name this pattern after the trail, especially since the design represents a celebration of connection with family and friends. I love how the blocks seem to beautifully point and flow into the next. 

Plus, I feel like the star design looks like pine trees from a bird’s eye view. Do you see it?

Featuring a scaleable, all-over design, the Pine Point Quilt pattern is a delight to make and offers multiple customization options for you to create your own unique vision. 

Because of the pattern‘s scaleability, you can make a large quilt just a little bit quicker! No need to make more and more and more blocks… just cut your pieces a little bigger and BAM! You’ve made a larger quilt!

Here are the fabric requirements:

December has been bonkers so far for me, including getting struck with an awful case of the stomach flu. But! I still managed to find some calm in the chaos to finish up three different Pine Point Quilt variations. Here they are: 

Pine Point Cover Quilt

With the timing of the release, I wanted to make the cover quilt using nostalgic Christmas reds and greens! Growing up in the 90s, homes were filled with hunter green and dusty rose decor all year round, but especially during the holidays… my house included!

For this nine-colour version in the throw-size, I used the following Kona Cotton colours:

I chose Joyful Boulevard Night from Christmas in the City from Art Gallery Fabrics as the backing and Essex Yarn Dyed Classic Wovens in Flax for the binding.

For the quilting, I used a scallop stitching pattern available on my Janome MC6700p and used 50wt Aurifil Thread in Muslin. I alternated the direction of the scallops every 10 inches for added visual interest and texture. Check out the quilting in action here

Next up, I made this two-colour pillow version. I adore it so much and I’m still trying to decide on who the lucky recipient will be… it might just have to be me!

For the backing, I went with Cocoa to match the front. I used an envelope enclosure on the back… stay tuned for a blog post tutorial on this in the future!

I hand quilted this one (my favourite pastime) using 28wt Aurifil Thread in Black. I decided to use wool batting to give it some extra loft and puffiness!

Lastly, I made this nine-colour peach and yellow version in the throw size. It might just be my favourite Pine Point version!

This colour combination isn’t a new one for me! I used a similar set of colours for the Star Lake cover quilt and a Home Street wall hanging.

The wall hanging lives between my dining room and pantry. I see it multiple times every single day and I just love it SO much. I knew I needed to work within a similar palette for Pine Point! 

Want to make your own quilt in a similar colourway? Fabric bundles for the Star Lake cover quilt and the Home Street are available in the shop! 

For the Kona Cotton colours, I used: 

Pine Point Yellow Peach Trimmings

I chose Winterglow Ski Peeps in Natural from Ruby Star Society for the backing. Watch me baste at super speed here

I’ve decided to hand quilt this one, so let’s be honest… it’s going to take me a while! Since it’s still a work in progress, I haven’t added the binding yet… but I can almost guarantee that when the time comes, it will be a striped Essex Linen

I typically go with a 28wt Aurifil Thread when hand quilting, but I’m actually opting for a 12wt this time! Because of the large scale of the blocks, there is a little more negative space and I feel like the 12wt will bring a better balance. When quilt pieces are a little smaller, 28wt feels like a better option.
