Plain and Simple (a new pattern)

Thursday, June 25, 2020

Look at me, blogging twice in one week!  Who am I?!?  
It's just that I have another new pattern to share with you!
I'd like to introduce you to Plain and Simple.

I had the opportunity to design a pattern with fabric from the 
Daisy Mae fabric line by Poppie Cotton.  It was interesting designing
a pattern with just THREE fabrics!  That's so not like me!
But it was a fun challenge trying to come up with a pattern for them; I love the way it
it turned out and now I want to make Plain and Simple in ALL the colors! 

It's a pretty easy pattern; one that I think would be great for beginners.

Plain and Simple comes with instructions for 5 different size options -

Baby - 34" x 34"
Throw - 51" x 51" 
(cover quilt and sample)
Twin - 68" x 85"
Queen - 85" x 102"
King - 102" x 102"

Cathy Barney quilted this for me using the Elegant Orange Peel design 
by Karlee Porter.  It's such a pretty design - it works well with the angles in the
quilt pattern but has a softness about it that I love!

I had so much fun making this pattern that I've already made a second one (the twin size)
using a V. and Co. ombre jelly roll I had on hand.  The pattern only includes instructions
for the three color version but I wanted to see what a scrappy version would look like.

Pretty fun, right?  Here's a peek at the quilt top.  I just dropped it off at my 
quilter's house today so I'll show you more pictures of it when it's finished.

Isn't it amazing how different it looks in solids with dark stars!?!
Check out this blue and white version (I was having fun mocking up different
versions of Plain and Simple in EQ7).

I think this pattern will be great in any color scheme for any occasion.  
What color scheme would YOU do if you made it?

Plain and Simple is now available as a PDF in my Etsy shop (click HERE)
The paper patterns will be available very soon!
Daisy Mae fabrics are in shops now.

Happy quilting!
