Two New Quilt Patterns!






Sooo...I have two new patterns to release today...yay! And I have a new logo and pattern cover design as well! My awesome friend Lauren who helps me with graphic design and techie stuff in general always gets it just right, and I'm thrilled with the new look and excited to share these designs. The new patterns are available now in PDF, and both patterns are designed in full-color!



First up is "Splash" which is shown in the terrific Kate Spain collection for Moda, Daydream, showing at Quilt Market this weekend. "Splash" measures 61" x 73" and is perfect for fat quarters or for using pieces from your scrap bin.




I had so much fun making this quilt. It went together easily, and I have a terrific method for assembling the center sections so you won't have any cut off corners..just perfect points!


My friend Abby of Latimer Lane Quilting did the terrific quilting, using a perfectly-proportioned orange peel design. She was amazing...receiving it and quilting it one day and shipping it out the next--thanks Abby!




I also need to say a big thank you to Kate who helped me out last minute with binding for this quilt. Thanks, Kate!

My second new design is called "Blossoms," and it's another fun quilt to piece. I had the design in my sketchbook, and the second I saw Bonnie & Camille's newest Moda collection, April Showers, I knew I wanted to use it for my version of this quilt.





Blossoms finishes at 62" x 78" and is jelly roll and layer cake friendly (or use fabrics from your scrap bin).



Again, Abby did a wonderful job on the quilting. In fact, I had another design picked out for this one, and she suggested I keep looking...I'm so grateful she suggested some other options because eventually we found what I think was a perfect pattern for this--the clam shell (don't the clam shells sort of make you think of umbrellas?).





Patterns are available in my Etsy shop here with the PDF files available for instant download. Paper copies printed in full color will ship after I'm home from quilt market. To celebrate, I'm offering a pre-market discount price of $7.00 for all paper and pdf patterns in the shop. Special pricing is good through Wednesday.

(If you are interested in ordering wholesale directly from me, please contact me by e-mail).

Thanks so very much for stopping by!

Two great patterns Sherri. I think Splash is calling my name!

I'm intrigued...can't wait to download mine so I can see how you piece the center sections.

This pattern will move UP the list for next year.

I love both patterns and I just bought the Blossoms one. I just love it. I'm so excited to try it but it will probably be after Christmas. Who knows I could put myself first but then what would happen to Christmas? I'll get it done. This will be the first one I've EVER kept.

Lovely quilts, Sherri!

I love them both, but I'd have to say I'm wild about Splash with it's varied, but controlled, scrappy look. And what a great new logo! I think it's perfect, too.

Congrats on two new patterns!
