Surprise! New pattern – Signs Signs Signs

Surprise!

Guess who has been working on a new pattern in between all the other craziness?!

You guessed it!

Some time ago, Robin B. made an amazing suggestion that I have had in the back of my mind ever since – a multi-directional signpost.

With all the travel I’ve been doing this year, I absolutely could not resist designing this one. I did a little research and a little sketching. I worked up a pattern and sent it off to my pattern testers.

It is now tested and ready to share!

This awesome, versatile pattern is perfect to express your wanderlust or to point to where your loved ones are, or maybe share your favorite fandom locations. Think fabric with existing text, hand or machine embroidery, stenciling, fabric markers, the list goes on!

New Pattern – Braided Confetti!

title

I’m delighted to share a new(ish!) pattern!

braided kaleidescope 500x500

A version of this pattern (above), originally known as Braided Kaleidoscope, was published in a magazine many years ago. The magazine went out of business and the copyright has reverted to me. Because it’s not been available for some time, I thought it would be fun to update the pattern for 2017 (almost 2018!), turn it from a single block into a quilt, and share it with you!

While the piecing hasn’t changed, the color HAS. The new version is colored quite differently to create a new effect. It’s also designed to make a 46″ quilt.

 

Make it scrappy, soft, or bright. Whatever works best for you!

Pattern includes fabric amounts, paper pieced pattern units, coloring page, and instructions to make the quilt shown here, all for just $4.95.

I admit it, I have had a lifelong love affair with glitter. I love all things sparkly, shiny and magpie-worthy!

I’ve put glitter on shoes, accessories, and t-shirts. I love glitter in fabric and I love it in yarn!

So here’s to glitter; once it’s in the carpet, it’s never coming out!

Glitter!

 

Signature Quilt Invite:

If you’ve played along with me before, then you know that I ADORE signature quilts and always invite event participants to share a signature block to be included in a special keepsake that I keep.

You are very sweetly invited to make a Signature Block for the My Favorite Things Signature Quilt!
