Life is busy here, as it always is right before a big show (in this case, Pacific International Quilt Festival). Just want you to be the first to see the new patterns that I have been working on.
I had so much fun making these stars using Kate’s wonderful fabrics.
Then, I put them together with some alternate blocks to make this quilt. I’ve named it “Star Light, Star Bright.”
It’s rare that I make more than one quilt from the same line of fabric, but I just couldn’t get enough, so here’s #2 from the same collection.
I combined Kate’s line with four of Kaffe Fassett‘s lovely polka dots. What if I were to call it “Kaffe Goes to Spain?” That sounded catchy at first, but on second thought I decided to name it “Sweet Rolls” as it takes both 1-1/2″-wide and 2-1/2″-wide pre-cut strip sets (called Honey Buns and Jelly Rolls if you are using Moda fabrics).
Some of you may be familiar with my popular “Going to Market” basket pattern. I decided to give it a new look with some of the latest Riley Blake fabrics. I just love the black-and- white-stripe handles from the original quilt. As hard as I tried to use other options in this version, I kept coming back to my first (and favorite) choice.
All three of these patterns will be available as kits. Please do stop by my booth (#634) at PIQF if you are planning to attend the show. It promises to inspire your creative spirit.
Many thanks to my bbs (that’s best blogging sisters!) for the touching post last week. You truly ARE the best and I’m so fortunate to be working with you.
Now… back to making kits.
Take care of yourselves everyone, and happy sewing.
