Atmosphere Quilt is a pattern by Lee Heinrich. The pattern includes instructions for two color options : rainbow colorway and minimalistic colorway. Lee wrote this pattern as a professional and all instructions – both cutting or piecing – are easy to follow.
As you can see I have chosen to make the minimalistic – or neutral colorway. I have made this quilt as a present for a dear friend that has a stone decoration wall with exactly these colors.
My color choice is simple. Two Kona Solids in Silver and Mustard (the lighter hue) and two Bella Solids in Etching Slates and Mustard.
I have altered the color distribution in the pattern, in the ribbon row. Instead of using only the darker mustard for the entire row, I have changed one unit for an Etching Slates grey. I have also made diamond in square blocks instead of piecing many flying geese units.
The backing fabric is from my stock. Fabrics that I bought or got as a gift by the owner of my local quilt shop before closing because of retirement. Backing fabric is from Makower Linea Heron Grey.
Quilting is once more with the walking foot. With my favourite stitch number 4 on the Bernina, a wavy pattern that I have adjusted in the length.
For the binding I have used the same fabric as for the backing.
I have added borders to the top and bottom of the quilt to make it bigger.
