I have a super big crush today and I’m extra excited to share it with you.
Today is the day I release my very first quilt pattern called Floating. I like this quilt. A lot!
I have been working on this project for a while and it has been so hard to keep quiet about it. I have been busy writing, and testing, and rewriting, and testing again. It has been a fun process that I enjoyed a lot.
The pattern uses strips and four different fabrics, plus the background. There are instructions for five sizes – baby, lap, twin, queen, and king. Lots of sections can be chain pieced which is a real time saver.
This is an easy pattern; there is only one block design to piece, and the placement of that one block creates the overall design.
I also made a baby size version using metallic prints by Timeless Treasures.
Look at this beautiful version made by my friend Shellie Hood. She used contemporary prints in a darker color palette, and her top is beautiful. I want to thank Shellie for being my very first pattern tester. Her hand quilting is absolutely beautiful – this girl has some mad quilting skills!
I also want to say a special thank you to Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs. She has been so helpful to me in the editing of this pattern, and I really appreciate her proofreading and math skills. Thank you Cheryl!
To celebrate my first pattern release, let’s have a giveaway! I will be giving two readers a PDF copy of the pattern. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment. Easy, peasy! The giveaway will be open all week and I will announce the winners next Monday.
Also, if you link up to Main Crush Monday, you will automatically be entered into the giveaway. So let’s see what you are crushing on this week! I would love to see what you are working on or what has you excited to be in your sewing space. Remember, your crush can be anything sewing/quilting related – new fabric, a new tool, a new technique you’ve learned, or any project you are working on. Come join the party!
