New patterns for Spring 2015

Posted on

Hi everyone!

It seems like I have been waiting for this day – the day I can share new pattern information – forever!  They are back from the printer and all the distributor and Market orders have been sent.  They are also up over in my shop.

I hope you like these new designs!  Here they are…

First Crush is a fat-quarter friendly, twin-sized quilt that is actually a deceptively simple quilt made from just one block!

The interlocking hearts form a secondary design so it is really fun to watch it come together!

Of course, by choosing a different border fabric you can dramatically alter the look of the design…

By the way, all these quits feature Carina, my first line for Benartex.  I couldn’t be more excited about it and I’ll be blogging more specifically about the fabric when it ships in August/September of this year.

Next up, Bouquet, which is a really graphic lap-sized piece.  Basically made up of squares, rectangles, and half-square triangles, it is super-easy to piece with just a touch of appliqué.

This was actually my first quilt that I quilted on the BERNINA Q 24, so it was thrilling!  (Some of you might have seen sneak peeks over on Instagram.)

Next up is Romance – a really quick but elegant 22” table runner…

I couldn’t stop making this one – it was fun to play with the colors in the collection.  I used 28 wt. Aurifil thread for the appliqué – my favorite!

And last, but not least, is Heart’s Delight.

It is my new block-of-the-month style quilt.  The pattern itself is chock-full of full color diagrams to guide you.  You start in the center with a heart shaped bargello design and work outward, adding borders as you go.  This was also quilted on the Q 24, this time with Aurifil monofilament thread, which was trouble-free.  It worked so well and saved a ton of time not having to change colors since I started quilting this two days before Market!

Do you like them?  I hope so!  Do you have a favorite?

So… if you are still reading (sorry for the amount of images – it is hard to choose) they are all over in my newly-revamped shop.  Speaking of which, I redid my shop so I can ship internationally.  I think the design is better too and hope you agree.  (I ship USPS everywhere.)

Also, a popular request has been a discount for a whole group of new patterns so I created something called “The Carina Collection” which includes all four patterns. You can get them at a discount here.

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a wonderful week with lots of sewing!
