I know I say this every single time I get a new line to play with, but gosh, Marmalade might be my favorite. It is just so bright and cheery, and was such a delight to sew with!
I had 4 new patterns to show at Quilt Market, and while you've already seen them by now, I always have to post a few of the closeups. And since I have an 18 month old assistant (who prefers running around in just a diaper at home, sorry) that has a hard time not being in the photos, a few of him too.
All four new patterns are available in my little shop as paper patterns or PDF's, and have shipped out to your local quilt shops too. If they don't have them, you can always ask!
Anyhow, here you go. Waaaay too many photos. Again, sorry.
First up is Flower Girl
This is a fat quarter pattern, and the blocks are 16" finished. Nice and big. Oh, and this is a generous twin size, (78" x 96") since I've had a lot of requests for bed quilts.
I designed this one way back when Ruby came out, but decided to wait on it. And I am sooo glad I did. I love it so much in Marmalade! Sherri pieced it and Angela quilted it. Both did an absolutely fantastic job. Thanks girls!!
Moda is going to be selling kits of this wholesale, so watch for them at your local quilt shop when Marmalade ships October-ish.
Such a simple quilt to piece, I love how this pinwheel quilt turned out. It's made from 2 charm packs, white fabric and a border and is really quick and easy. I pieced it, and you guessed it, Angela quilted it. Like I said before, she's amazing!
(Nicholas was so helpful when I was taking these photos, can you spot him?)
which you've seen, but I didn't want it to feel left out.
I pieced and quilted both, and although the quilting pales in comparison to the last two, I'm still really happy with how they turned out. What do you think? Straight spools or stacked?
And last of all, Charming bibs.
I have struggled to find a larger size bib that I like for Nicholas, so I decided to make a few. Don't worry, his aren't pink.
You can make all 3 bibs from one charm pack, and a fat quarter for each back.
Sorry, the boy doesn't come with the pattern.
And lest you think taking photos of this boy is all smiles:
Yeah, it's not.
He's a little bit... difficult, this one. Almost all the time. But gosh, he sure is cute. Even after the 8 or so packs of fruit snacks it took to get the cover photo.
Okay, there you have it. Which one is your favorite?
Mine is that little grouch in the bib, but what do I know?
