Pattern Review: Lombard Street

After over a year of dawdling, I have finished my quilt from the beautiful Lombard Street pattern by Sassafras Lane Designs.

Quilt pattern review

“Amish on Lombard Street”, my quilt made from a Sassafras Lane pattern

I rarely use patterns, since I prefer to design my own quilts, but this one caught my eye! The “trick” is that it is paper pieced, which helps all those points come out nice and sharp. The pattern is well written and the instructions are clear. ย I had no trouble from that quarter.

I did have trouble when I decided to quilt it myself, and ended up taking out quilting from the entire quilt, then sending it off to my favorite longarm quilter! ย She did a great job, and I’m happy to say I had the perfect binding waiting when the quilt came back to me ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Pattern review Lombard Street

And look at that nice angular quilt pattern that reinforces the overall design!

Here’s a picture of the original pattern, courtesy of the Sassafras Lane site:

I haven’t made any of the other patterns from Sassafras Lane, but I was very satisfied with this one, and they certainly have some cheerful and interesting designs. I do recommend checking them out if you like cute modern patterns.

  1. Very pretty. Wonderful workmanship. I don’t paper piece yet but if this is the result, it is great. I cannot figure out how the quilter got the thread to match so perfectly with the different colors.

  2. Wow I love it with the black background and the bright fabric! The white background would not have interested me as much, it does not have the wow that the black has which really makes the colors pop!
