Today is the day! I’m excited to be able
to share my three new patterns. They were so much fun to make, and I
love the designs and fabrics in each one. I can also picture these
patterns in a lot of other fabric combinations, so don’t be surprised If I
remake them very soon!
First up is “Happy Friday” which is a fast and fun Jelly Roll quilt. I used an upcoming Moda collection, Beach House, by new Moda designer Kate Nelligan for this quilt. I used a strip piecing method for the blocks which saves a lot of time.
This is a great summer quilt and really works well with these fun beach fabrics, but I can picture it in Christmas fabrics, Halloween fabrics, and even Americana fabrics for summer. And of course it will be perfect for your favorite every day collection too!
If you have it cut out and have a free day…it’s a “quilt in a day” kind of project and is perfect for a beginner quilter.
Next up is a Layer Cake quilt, “Pot Luck.” I used a new Sweetwater collection for Moda, Feed Company, for this quilt. This is the perfect pattern for showcasing those layer cake squares you just can’t bear to cut up! Directions are provided for two Dresden Plate applique’s, but they are optional and can be substituted with two more fun layer cake squares…the choice is up to you!
This is another fast project…and it will work well with left over fat quarters, too.
I have to admit that the Dresden’s were a last-minute addition to my quilt, but I love that extra touch they add.
This is another quilt pattern that would be perfect for your favorite Christmas collection, Halloween collection, or Americana fabric.
And (last but not least) my other new pattern is “Boardwalk” which was pieced using Paradiso, Kate Spain’s upcoming collection for Moda. This quilt showcases the brilliant florals and geometric prints in the collection which remind me of the vibrant flowers peeking out from picket fences along my favorite boardwalk in California.
The star blocks are easy to put together in the square in a square setting…and this quilt can also be pieced with a Layer Cake along with extra fabric for the sashing, contrast block background, border and binding.
It would be a lot of fun to see this quilt in Christmas or Americana fabrics, too!
Well…so there they are! I sure had fun designing and sewing these new quilts…I’m hoping you like them too!
PDF patterns are available for instant download now in my Etsy shop, and paper patterns will ship after market (by November 5). Right now and through the weekend you can purchase PDF or paper for just $7 each.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
You had me at "feed company". This quilt is just amazing and I can't wait to make it. I am running over to get the pattern now and will hang onto it until I can make it with the same fabric. Thank you for sharing your creativity.
LOVE your Potluck quilt! Wondering how difficult it is for a sort of new quilter?

Oooh! I think I have to make Boardwalk first!
Love all your new quilts! Potluck is my favorite with the LC squares and the dresdens. Now it just need more time in my life:-)
Sherri, these quilts are great. More for my to do list. Have fun at quilt market.
Great patterns Sherri! I love Potluck. Can you believe I've never made a dresden block? I think I need to make a Christmas Potluck quilt just so I can try my hand at a dresden block without having to commit to a whole quilt full of dresdens 🙂

Sherri – what wonderful quilt patterns, each.and.every.one! Happy Friday is just awesome and the dresdens in Potluck just make the whole quilt. Just love the stars in Boardwalk – a real focal point. What creativity! Congratulations on these special patterns. I love them!
B DeGayner says
Each one is just wonderful! Well done!
Mindy Williams says
They are all beautiful! Boardwalk is the one I am itching to do. Thanks
Making my purchase now!!
Ann Bassett says
Wow, very nice patterns. Those dresden plates are super cute.
Congrats Sherri! These are lovely!!
Oh, boy. After just looking at Sweetwater's new patterns and now your great options, I am once again reminded that there are too many quilts to be made and not enough time!
You have been very, very busy. They are all beautiful!
Christine S says
Yep, the Feed Company and that pattern = perfect!
Angela Smith says
Love all of these, thanks for sharing.
Jan Marie says
love them all and can't choose one.
Beautiful patterns! Always look forward to your posts. Thanks for sharing.
I love Potluck! It reminds me of an Irish chain but seems a bit easier for a beginner like me.
Very nice patters Sherry and your color choices for them are perfect! Now, just have to decide which one or all I guess to do! Thanks
Love Potluck! Great pattern and palette.
Fabulous new patterns, Sherri! I love the offset pattern of the first one, the Dresdens thrown in for effect in Pot Luck and the beautiful stars in the last. You really are amazing.
I hope market goes well for you–I'll wave at your house as I drive by!
These look great! I especially love "Boardwalk!"
