Our new patterns start arriving from the printer shortly, so this week I will be previewing three new patterns.
I am going to start with one that I can’t take credit for! My Mom designed this quilt, specifically for the wall in her sewing room. When I saw it, I loved it and asked if we could publish it. She agreed and I think you will like it!
If the front looks weird on your screen, this one might be better:
Mom made the version in the top left corner and she designed the quilt specifically to fit on a large wall in her sewing room (I will be posting pictures of the quilt and her sewing room later this week). She wanted lots of light background to set off the blocks. I think it’s the perfect combination of trendy and traditional – which you know I am so drawn to.
(Again – If the picture above looks weird on your screen, this one might be better. Not sure why I am having trouble with this today!)
The fabrics are from Bonnie and Camille’s Modern Vintage line (from Moda fabrics). When you see her sewing room, you will see why she chose these colors.
The quilt in the lower right corner of the pattern is my version.
The fabrics I chose are from my stash, with many of them from previous lines that I have designed and several from V and Co’s new line called Simply Style (for Moda fabrics.) They were chosen to go with the sham fabric below.
The sham fabric is what I based my latest bedroom re-do on. Remember the hot pink and yellow that I used to have? (click here to see the bedroom post – skip to pictures at the end) Joel may have compained once or twice about it being so girly. When I found this sham fabric, I thought it might be the best of both worlds – a beautiful floral with colors that are more manly.
Notice how I chose not to make a king size quilt? (even though that is one of the 8 size options in the pattern). I have several reasons for doing that. The first is that my time for quilting is much more limited now that I have a toddler, so I have to be realistic about what I can all get done. Secondly, I like how the solid green bed spread really frames the quilt. I like it displayed on point for something a bit different and I like that is isn’t quite as busy as a totally pieced quilt.
And one last close-up of the fabrics -

That’s all for now – Hope to see you back here in a few days for the next reveal!
