Chapel Street Quilt Pattern by Emma Jean Jansen

I am so excited to share with you my first ever English Paper Pieced quilt, Chapel Street.
I will also admit now it will probably be my only one! I loved making it but for a designer that has limited time to work (full time caring of a nearly 3 year old) it just isn't the method for me. Lucky this design can also be machine pieced and I will take you through the steps in future blog post.

The story behind my Chapel Street quilt is pretty simple. We were living in Melbourne last year during the lockdowns and I walked a lot. So much so I didn’t put petrol in my car for 7 months!!

A least a couple of days a week I would make the walk to my local supermarket in Balaclava and on the way I passed a building. It had a tiled front and I always thought it would make the perfect patchwork block. The name comes from the location of the building, Chapel Street.

The plan to turn in into an I Spy quilt came from the fact Henry was with my every time I walked past the building, just hanging out in his pram and because the playgrounds were closed this was the most exciting outing of his day.

The fabric used in the quilt is mainly older Cotton and Steel fabrics and some newer Ruby Star Society prints. The black and white stripe is a 1/4" stripe from Riley Blake Designs but any 1/4" stripe would work.

The pattern is 5” Charm Square, Fat 16th, Fat 8th and Fat Quarter Friendly. It can also be made using your stash and left over scraps.

There are also acrylic templates as well as EPP kits for both the cushion and throw size.

I decided to make the cushion completely differently to the original quilt. I paired low volume prints with bright solids.

I then choose a big bold stripe for the back and switched the directions so I didn't have to match the stripes!
I think it looks very stylish, especially with the matching self covered buttons. The instructions to make this cushion back are included in the pattern.

Both the quilt and cushion were just simply quited using straight lines, my go to for modern quilting.
I have a blog post on how I quilt if you are  interested here.

I hope you like my new quilt pattern and already have ideas for fabric choices. I love that the quilt can be made from small scraps and the design perfectly suits that eclectic look.
