New Patterns - Snow Village and With Love

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

 Hello there!  If you've been following along with me on Instagram you know that I've designed a couple of new patterns recently!  I'd love to share those with you today!  First up is Snow Village.


Snow Village is a pattern made up of two simple blocks - a snowflake block and a house block.  I've never made a snowflake quilt so this was a fun one for me!  These are simple snowflakes and each one is made up of a different fabric.


I designed this to be a "winter" quilt that could last beyond December 25th.  Normally here in Utah, we would've had lots of snow at the time I took this photo, but this year was weird!  We just barely got our first real snowfall! 


This is a fairly quick make, finishing at 66" x 66".


I was so excited about this gingham fabric by Lella Boutique for Moda.  I thought it was super cozy and wintery so I bought enough for the houses and the back.  But I just can't wait to start seeing different colorways of this pattern pop up!  How cute would this pattern be with a black background and white snowflakes?!?  Do I need to make another one?  Hmmm....maybe so!

The second quilt I want to share with you today is called, With Love.


This is such a fun quilt to make!  Again, it incorporates just two simple blocks. 


The hearts are made from 10" squares (I used a bunch of reds from different Sweetwater for Moda collections).  I also used my favorite background fabric, Firefly Whisper from the line Hello, Bear by Art Gallery Fabrics.  I had everything for this quilt in my stash.  Didn't have to buy a thing!  I bet you have lots of fabrics in your stash that would be fun too!  Or maybe not.  Maybe a trip to the fabric store is in order!  Wink, wink. :)


This quilt is also a pretty quick make.  It finishes at 55" x 55", so there's still time to whip this up before Valentine's Day!  But hearts are good all year long, right?  This could be fun as a wedding gift, for an anniversary or for someone that just needs a little extra love in their life.  


Both of these quilts were quilted by my friend, Kaylene Parry.  I have used her a lot over the years and she is a fabulous quilter!  I so appreciate her squeezing these into her busy schedule during the busy holiday season!
