This year one of my main goals was to release 4 original quilt patterns, and I am excited to say that these new patterns are numbers 8,9,10 & 11 for the year.
(I also set a goal to finish off some of my WIPs, but let’s just say that I am not doing quite as well with that goal, but that’s okay 😉 !! )
Alongside this new pattern collection release, I have also launched my own SHOP, right here on my website. Currently if you live in Australia, New Zealand, Canada or the U.S. you can now purchase your PDF patterns directly from my site, making things a little less confusing. Unfortunately due to the EU tax laws I can’t sell virtual products directly to those of you living in those countries, but I will still maintain my Payhip site where you can purchase a pattern.
August Rain Quilt Pattern
If you are a newsletter subscriber then I have already shared with you the inspiration behind this quilt. If not, then the short version is that this quilt is a tribute to all the strong, amazing, compassionate, resilient and charitable women who show up at the moment you need them.
This quilt is strip friendly, and while it takes a little concentration to get the layout right, it’s super simple to piece together, and the effect is such fun.
Down Memory Lane Quilt Pattern
Definitely a sentimental favourite; I am so happy that I am able to share the full size pattern of this quilt with you. Back in February I shared the mini version, and I have wanted to offer the full size pattern ever since.
10″ square or scrap friendly, I created this design to fit a single/twin bed, but it could easily be adjusted to almost any size you like. This quilt is great for beginner quilters because there’s not much that needs to be matched, and the quilt comes together with ease.
As a bonus I have also included instructions for a large block version, which again, could easily be adapted to any size you need; and is perfect for when you want to sew something fast :)!
Burnt Sugar Quilt Pattern
This quilt has been a delightful surprise to me at every step of the design and development process. I am putting the final stitches in the binding now, and I can’t wait to share the full story behind this quilt soon.
Perfect for 10″ squares or scraps – I love how this block can look quite different depending on the value of the fabric and their placement in the block. While there are a few pieces you need to account for, this block is still really simple to piece.
When it’s on a bed, this quilt is simply stunning.
Quiet Moments Quilt
Very recently I shared the details of this quilt as part of Keera Job’s Daisy Days blog tour.
One of my favourite things is that this quilt is perfect for Fat Eighth pieces of fabric. From a design perspective I love how the piecing gives a gentle illusion of curves without any difficult piecing, and I think it makes for a timeless quilt. Don’t you think this would also look gorgeous in a scrappy 2 colour version 🙂 ?!
This pattern does require a certain degree of accuracy to ensure everything meets at the right spots, but if you take care when you are stitching pieces diagonally from corner to corner then you will minimise any issues that could arise ;).
Thank you for the warm response you have already given these patterns on Instagram.
I can’t wait to see how many of you will interpret them and make them your own.
Over the next few weeks I will be sharing more images of all the quilts I have made from these patterns, so I hope you pop back here and check them out!
And don’t forget to check out the hashtags on Instagram too – many of my talented testers have shared what they have been working on, and they are all beautiful!!
Until next time,
