Diamond Burst Quilt for Andover Fabrics & Lizzy House

andover_diamondbrust_001 I have been working on a new pattern behind the scenes for a month or two now. I’m calling it the Diamond Burst Quilt and it should be coming out next month. My testers are testing it as I type this!

I decided to test the waters to see how people liked it by making a mini quilt using Lizzy House’s new Printmaking line for Andover fabrics. They sent me the fabric as part of their QuiltCon 2017 booth, so it all worked out perfectly.

It will be sold as a mini quilt pattern, but I will be including diagrams and more to show how to make a twin, full, queen and more. I seriously can not wait until to show my sample quilt! It’s epic, and I don’t use that word often.

andover_diamondbrust_002Just keep an eye out here for the exact release date.

In other news, the Pixelated Circles Quilt is being printed right now and hard copies will be available after May 8th. I will also be selling acrylic cutting templates for each size individually, or as a pack of four. All preorders can be found in my shop!

 

My Collaboration with Gingiber

IMG_4273smallhighres I’ve been quiet these past few months here, but I haven’t been sitting around twiddling my thumbs. Back in September 2016, I started a collaboration with the company Gingiber. They make super cute piece with loads of different animals and I highly recommenced checking them out. Stacie, who is the artist behind the name, is now a fabric designer with Moda Fabrics. We met and talked about pattern design at the Spring 2016 Quilt Market, and decided to work together.

I designed two smaller quilts to go along with her upcoming fabric line called Merrily. You can see one of the quilt and wall hanging above. Both were made specifically to fit her illustrated panels from this line and the previous one called Thicket. Both also include tips and tricks that double as skill builders. That was my favorite part.

The patterns will be printed booklets, and available to purchase the same time the fabric is available in stores. I am super excited about this and I’ll share more once they are available!

Stacie was so great to work with, I have agreed to continue the collaboration and we will be releasing three more patterns within the year to go along with her next line (name and images are top secret, so I have to wait to share that info).

As well as these two patterns, and then the three after, I myself will also be releasing several patterns. Both PDF and printed. I’m going to take the leap, and this will be the year of patterns!! Woohoo!
