I’m SO excited to get to share with you the newest pattern in the Cooking Up Quilts line-up. This one is called Razzle Berry and I like it a lot. It’s easy and fast and I love the way the fabrics play with each other in the layout.
Naming patterns is something I really struggle with. This name landed after a long journey through my mind that started with the cherry blossoms on the tree in my front yard, which led me to cherry pie because if I’m cooking up quilts then maybe pattern names should be a play on what would be cooking in my kitchen but I didn’t like calling it cherry pie so that took me to what other fruit pies are there that are red in color and hubby loves razzle berry pie and somehow that name stuck. Whew!! Big breath! See how my crazy mind works?? So many twists and turns. LOL
This design has been in my sketchbook for about two years. I actually started piecing the top during quilt retreat in November, 2018. It got put on a back burner after I came home and it sat there for another year. I finally finished piecing the quilt at the end of 2019. I also made a second version which I will share later in the week.
Razzle Berry is perfect for a confident beginner and for anyone who wants an easy project to work on. What I really like about this pattern is the modern feel the sashing gives to the quilt. It’s a little different than other sashings I’ve used, and I love how much interest and movement it adds to the quilt.
The pattern includes instructions for 5 sizes: Baby, Lap Twin, Queen, and King and will be 20% off all this week. You can get your PDF copy by visiting my pattern shop. Printed copies will be available in the shop on Tuesday.
So that’s the excitement for me this week. I’m also really psyched about the quilt I’m currently working on for a new customer. It’s a gorgeous top, with a 38″ x 58″ solid white center. I was told to use gold thread and have fun in that big blank center space. I’ve got the quilting design all drawn, all the registration marks made and I’m ready to start stitching tomorrow. If it turns out as good as what I have envisioned then I’ll be beyond happy. I can’t wait to show it to you!
