Wonder - A New Pattern by Gigi's Thimble

Monday, February 26, 2018

Good morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was pretty relaxing.  Nothing to write home about though (which is just the way we like it!)

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know about my new pattern, Wonder.  Some of you may have seen it on Instagram and a few of you may have gotten your little hands on it already
if you were one of the lucky recipients of the January Quilters Candy Box box!

I was honored to be asked to curate the January's Quilters Candy Box which included some of my favorite things:  
1. A Dream Bar (which didn't even last a day in my house) from Pot Belly Sandwich 
2. Some pretty fabric (I'd hoped it could've been Project Red from Sweetwater but unfortunately it wasn't available at the time the box contents were purchased).  But these pretty red & pink fabrics were simply lovely!
3. Two sweet little donut pins from @quiltypie on Instagram.  I can't resist donuts.  Crullers are my favorite.  What's yours?  Also, Susan (@quiltypie) makes the most amazing pins!  See my post HERE.
4. A SOTAK Needle Book kit.  I try to stay organized and this kit with it's linen cover is just my style!
5. Linen quilt labels (so excited about these!  I've been wanting some forever and what quilter can't use some labels!?!)
6. Graph paper notebook and Micron pen ~ essentials for quilt designing and planning!
7. An exclusive quilt pattern called Wonder.

I designed Wonder exclusively for the box recipients but the time has come that I can finally make it available to the rest of you.

It's fat quarter friendly and includes instructions for FIVE different sizes!

I used fabrics from the new line Project Red by Sweetwater for Moda.  I love all Sweetwater fabrics but this might be one of my favorite collections of theirs.  

Whatever fabrics you choose, may I suggest a good variation of lights and darks to achieve a similar look?

Wonder is a fun one to make and easy enough for beginners.

I want to thank Kaylene Parry for quilting it for me.  I chose a beautiful feather/swirl/pearl pantograph called Moulin Rouge by Urban Elementz for Kaylene to do and she did a fabulous job!  Kaylene lives in Lehi, UT. and I have used her many, many times over the years.  Thank you, Kaylene!

If you'd like to purchase Wonder in either a paper or PDF version they are now listed in my shop.  Click HERE.

Have a happy Monday friends!
