NEW Patterns – Florette and Nova

NEW PATTERNS

Even though I have been sewing and quilting during this pandemic, I have had a lot of secret projects to finish.  Now I get to share some of my own work with all of you.  I have several new patterns on the horizon and these are the first ones out of the hopper and  I am so happy to share them with you.

FLORETTE

This first pattern is called Florette.  It is a sweet table runner that changes its mood by just changing the colors.  The individual blooms are a variation of a log cabin block.  So bright and cheery, this pieces together in no time at all.  I just grabbed some scraps from the bin and put it all together.  This would be a great gift for a friend, housewarming, or something cheery for your own table this winter.

This table runner finishes at 14″ x 42″.

NOVA

Next up is this clever two color star quilt I am calling Nova.  It is made up of a lot of flying geese!

I love the two color design that creates the striking star blocks.  However, it would be easy to add a little red to make this a Patriotic quilt.  My pattern includes instructions to create four flying geese at a time to make stitching it up go even faster.  The Sashing and borders also help to easily square up this quilt and make it a little more forgiving for beginner quilters.

This pattern comes in three sizes:

  • Baby    42″ x 42″
  • Throw (Pictured) 56″ x 70″
  • Twin 70″ x 84″

Nova available in my shop HERE

New Pattern: Summer Harvest Quilt

My next pattern is ready for Sale!  Summer Harvest is a super easy Throw Quilt made from 9 1/2″ quilt blocks.  It will be the perfect project for a beginning quilter this summer.

It uses precut 10 inch squares so you can break open that fabulous pile of fabric you have been waiting to use.  It lends itself to any season, but these bright Malka Dubrowski prints really pop with the colors of the farmer’s market in summer.

This quilts was originally featured on the cover of Quick to Stitch Precuts Magazine in 2015, but now it is available as a PDF download.

The pattern is super easy and the precut 10 inch blocks and assembly instructions let you easily strip piece the blocks in a hurry.

You create these leaf style blocks and sew them together in rows and columns.

Here is the quilt top all pieces and ready for pin basting.

This was my original Electric Quilt 7 design, but I decided to add some narrow sashing between the columns to set off the bright fabrics.

I even used the scraps cut from the corners to piece the backing for this quilt.  A great way to use the leftovers.

I also quilted this throw with my Bernina 630 and some free motion quilting.  I used a cute leave motif for each block.

I hope you have as much fun making this quilt as I did!
