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.
Terrain by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics
I had so much fun making these stars using Kate’s wonderful fabrics.
Blocks made with Kate Spain 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.
Now… back to making kits.
Take care of yourselves everyone, and happy sewing.
