Finally! I've been over here binding like crazy trying to get all of my new Market quilts finished up and ready to go, and today I finally get to show you what I've been working on out of our new line, Scrumptious.
And always, I'm a little bit nervous to show you guys. I hope you like them! I do have to say, new quilt posts are always my favorite to look through. You?
I know that you are already scrolling past this to see the photos, so I won't ramble on too much. Here's the rundown:
First up is Surfside-
This one is made from a Scrumptious Layer Cake and looks much more complicated to put together than it really is. It is a breeze to piece, and came together really quick! There are two versions, the scrappy one and a two color version. Did I tell you the Scrumptious has printed solids? It does, and they are sooo pretty.
I pieced this one and Andrea Marquez quilted it and did a fantastic job, as always. Thank you Andrea!
I am hoping to make a scrappy verison of out this pile of fabric after Market. You know, when it is so hot here that all we can do is hide inside and sew? (Well, I sew. The boys make messes.) That's the plan! Can't wait!
Next up is Summer-
These blocks are 18" and since each one is made from two fat quarters, you could make this literally any size super easy. Baby size? 4 blocks. Twin? 20 blocks. King? 36 blocks. Piece of cake!
Sherri pieced this one (and super fast, might I add), and Andrea quilted this one too. I have the most talented friends! Thanks girls! I usually bind everything by hand, but this time I bound a few of my Market quilts on my machine. It is sooo fast, but I still like the look of hand sewn binding better.
The third one is a star quilt called Lucky-
It can be made with a Layer Cake or Charm Squares, or scraps, or yardage for the rainbow version. So pretty much anything! I made the rainbow verison from the little bias stripes in Scrumptious and am crazy about how it turned out.
Not to mention, it was quilted by Angela Walters who did such an incredible job. That Angela. Have you seen what she's up to lately? Sheesh!
And last but not least, my favorite of the bunch, Niner. This quilt is quite possibly my favorite quilt I've ever made, ever.
Now, to be fair, it is the last one I finished (I bound it late last night) which is often my favorite quilt, but there is just something about this one and Happy-go-Lucky mixed with Scrumptious.
Not to mention these blocks were really addictive. Once I made the first one I couldn't stop until all nine were made. Did I mention they are huge? And no trimming or waste! The quilt is 80" x 80", and adding a 6" border would make it queen size. It is made out of 2 Layer Cakes, or 2 Jelly Rolls. Or one of each. A perfect chance to pick two different lines and mix them together into nine patch perfection. I love nine patches.
(I also love this back/binding combo)
You can probably tell just by looking at it, but this one was also quilted by Angela. And good heavens she outdid herself with this quilting. If you are going to be at Quilt Market, you'll have to come see it in person. It's pretty awesome.
And there you have it! Four new patterns just in time for Spring Quilt Market. The PDFs are available my shop now, but any orders with paper pattern (printed in full color, might I add!) will ship as soon as they get back from the printer next week.
Aaaahhhh.... it feels so good to finally show you these! I've had too many things in the works lately, and too many secrets. Now you are all caught up! So the question is, what do you think? Do you have a favorite?
Have a great weekend!
