New Quilts Patterns

Fall quilt market has come and gone and I'm just now getting a chance to post a few of my new patterns. Quilters are such wonderful, friendly people and I'm so priviledged to be a part of this fantastic industry. My first new pattern is called Berry Basket Welcome and I chose beautiful brown, red and tan prints from French General's new line for Moda called Maison de Garance. This is a fat quarter friendly pattern and can be easily made in a weekend. It has big, bold prints and It goes together with ease, and would be a great choice for even the beginning quilter. I chose fabrics from the Definitions line by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics.

Last, but certainly not least, is my newest block of the month pattern designed for use with Strip It, designs that was inspired from a wonderful children website and more precisely the mandalas coloring page. This is a 6 month bom with a few twists. Each month, blocks or a border is made and added to the previous month, so that at the end of the sixth month, your quilt is completely finished! By using Strip It for many of the blocks and rail fence border, your piecing time is cut in half. The name of this pattern is Chestnut and Vine, which is also the name of the fabric line by Faye Burgos made for Marcus Fabrics.
