Introducing the Kayak Point Quilt

Happy Monday, friends!

I am so happy to share with you today my latest pattern for Quilt Theory.

Introducing the Kayak Point quilt!


As some of you may know, for this collection, the Quilt Theory designers limited ourselves to a palette of 12 colors that we could use in our quilts. I knew right away which of the 12 colors I wanted to use. They just made me so happy! And I also knew right away that I wanted to use a selection of Michael Miller prints and solids… they’re so gorgeous!

As I was designing, I kept in mind that I wanted to make this pattern pre-cut friendly with very little waste. I’m happy to say that I succeeded- this quilt top uses almost two full jelly rolls or one jelly roll with yardage for the background.


I named this quilt after one of my favorite beaches here in Washington. I spent countless hours there with my dad and sister playing, crabbing, and learning to fish. The elongated diamond shapes remind me of kayaks lined up in rows. So of course, I had to do a little photo session out there!


I really pushed it down to the wire with this one… I finished the hand quilting on the afternoon before I was supposed to deliver it and took it out to Kayak Point to photograph it that night! Although time consuming, I think the hand quilting was worth it! Aurifil was kind enough to provide me with coordinating 12 weight thread to hand quilt each diamond, and I love how it turned out.





Giveaway Time! 

To help us celebrate, Michael Miller was gracious enough to offer one lucky winner a jelly roll of Modern Basics in Ocean AND 3 yards of Bright White Cotton Couture. That’s enough fabric to make a Kayak Point quilt top of your own!

  1. I wasn’t able to find the official color names, but my favorites are the mustardy yellow, the gray, and the navy. I like you pattern a lot; it would be appropriate for both genders and would take on the “personality” of the fabric.


  2. Your colors are so pretty that it is hard to choose. Really like Bright Pink, Lt. Turquoise and Bright Yellow. I love the photos of your quilt by the lake.

  3. I looked at the 12 color palette on the Quilt Theory site and I like the light turquoise (last on the top row), the bright yellow (first on the bottom row) and the light grey (second to last on the bottom row). Your quilt is gorgeous and the quilting is amazing.

  6. We have spent many happy days out there, too! I think the palette has a beautiful combination of colors, but my favorites would be the orange, teal, and purple.
