Remember this quilt?
I designed it about a year ago for Sew Hip magazine and, since then, have enjoyed seeing versions of it here and there.
I've also gotten a fair number of inquiries from folks wanting to know how to get a copy of the pattern. Apparently finding copies of this British magazine is not easy here in the States and purchasing back issues is near impossible.
Seeing as the pattern is very difficult to come by, I've decided to update the pattern with my own edits and illustrations so that I can offer it for sale in my store.
My first step, however, has been to remake the quilt. I'd given the original away as a gift to a friend so I needed a new version to both refresh my memory on how to make the quilt and for photography purposes.
I stayed with the original color palette, lots of low volume fabrics and various shades of "whites" to give this version the clean, modern feel that the original had.
I've got the top all pieced and all that's needed is some backing, batting, and a bit of quilting. Then I'll add the illustrations and the pattern will be ready.
My release date is next Wednesday, August 4 and I'll be celebrating it with a little pattern giveaway. So, if you think you'd like a chance to win a copy of the pattern or you'd just like to see the finished quilt, check back then.
