Gather 'Round Quilt

Yet another Bonjour Quilts pattern all made up! This one is called Gather 'Round and I'm more than a little bit in love with it.

Besides the 3.25 yards of background fabric (which is Kona Ash in my version), this pattern doesn't require a whole lot - one yard of the chevron fabric (Kona White here) and 0.75 yard of the motif fabric (Kona Berry). I can picture it being pieced from a variety of different fabrics in the same colour family though - so you potentially could use fat quarters.

Kristy who is the designer behind Bonjour Quilts writes really detailed instructions that are easy to follow, including pressing directions and some tips and tricks on cutting and piecing.

I used my walking foot for the quilting and used the seams to determine the width between the straight lines. They definitely aren't perfectly straight - I eyeballed many of them, but the overall texture is just awesome.

I used a sheet once again to back this quilt. This is the flat sheet from the last set we got for our bed. It is really soft and a gorgeous shade of blue.

The binding is more Kona Berry which might very well be my favourite Kona colour!

I made this quilt with my father in mind. Our town was in complete lockdown over the Holidays so I wasn't able to see him, but as soon as I know it's safe to visit with him, this quilt will be delivered to its new owner.

The details:
  • Pattern: Gather 'Round by Bonjour Quilts
  • Size: 60" x 80"
  • Fabrics: Kona Ash, Kona White and Kona Berry 
  • Thread: Pieced and quilted with Aurifil #2600 (Dove) in 50 wt


  1. Another beauty! Could you please tell me how you baste your quilts? I have pinned and that seems to work but I am wondering how you do it. Your quilts lay so flat. Thanks!

  2. Such a striking quilt! This one really ticks all the boxes for me and the colors make me think of the desert Southwest.

  3. This is a great quilt. I like Berry as well.

  4. Beautiful quilt! The ash was a lovely choice and I'm sure your Dad will enjoy using it xx
