Feathers & Flourishes patterns are in – plus a giveaway!

Note: The winner of this giveaway is Mary, who loves nature-inspired collections with dark colors mixed in.  Congratulations Mary and thanks for commenting everyone!  I am underwater with prep for BERNINA University right now so haven’t gotten to respond to all of your comments but I did read them.  Thanks for the GREAT ideas!  – Amanda

Hi everyone!

My 4 new Feathers & Flourishes patterns will all be in by the end of the week!   I’m so excited I thought we’d do a giveaway for a full set of patterns!  (All were pieced on the BERNINA 780 and quilted on the BERNINA Q 24.)

Here’s the rundown…

Plume cover
Plume! A 10”-square-friendly design that can look wild different by switching out just the border and background prints.


Posies… a fat-quarter-friendly quilt on a dramatic blue background. This is a 1-block quilt with strip-pieced sashing.


“Starstruck” – a 2-1/2”-strip-friendly design. (And my personal favorite this time.)



Last, but certainly not least, Flourishes, a fusible appliqué design with an SVG file option.

If you like the patterns and fabric, if you would ask your local shop to order them I’d really appreciate it.  They listen to you guys!

For those of you who don’t have a local shop, the patterns will be up in my shop, but will not ship until early next week ’cause I need folding time!  Also, you’ll notice my shop is in a  bit of a transition and some of my patterns and books are shown.  I’m rebuilding it so that I have the ability offer PDFs so international customers and I’ll be adding items back over the next few weeks.

Ready for a chance to win a full set of patterns?  If so, tell me what type of style or theme you’d like to see in my next collection by commenting at the bottom of this post.  (If you buy a set of patterns before you win, you can opt for other patterns in my line instead so no worries.)  You may have to click on the title of the post to see the comment area at the bottom. Limit one entry per person please and make sure to leave a way for me to contact me if you win if your email settings are private.  The deadline to enter will be two weeks from now so end of day on June 30th.  Also, if I don’t respond to all comments like I normally try to do, I apologize.  I have new projects and fabric due for BERNINA University in July so things are crazy around here!

For another chance to win, head over to Brewer’s blog and follow the instructions to enter!  Good luck!

Have a lovely weekend and happy quilting!
