Sweet Leaf Quilt – Pattern Release

I’m so excited to release my latest pattern – The Sweet Leaf Quilt!  You can find the pattern in my Finely Fabric Etsy Shop

I used Kona Cotton solids by Robert Kaufman, the colors used are Paprika, Terra Cotta, Baby Pink, Ice Frappe, Blue, Prairie Sky, Malibu, and White.  The quilting was completed by Jamie at Quilt Drop, LLC using the Baptist Fans quilting design.

The Sweet Leaf quilt comes in five different sizes and two different layouts – it can be made scrappy or into a rainbow version using seven different colors. 

I used the Fruity fabric line by Maja Faber for Paintbrush Studios.  The quilting was completed by Jamie at Quilt Drop, LLC using the Dew Drops quilting design by Patricia E. Ritter.

The scrappy version is precut friendly – the baby and throw size can be made with fat quarters and the large throw can be made with a layer cake!  I love using precuts for quilts because you can get a lot of different prints that all coordinate with each other. 

This quilt pattern wouldn’t be what it is without the help of my amazing pattern testers.  Below are the quilts that they made, I love how different each one looks!!

Ashley @oeiboymomquilts made this gorgeous quilt using the Alma line from Ruby Star Society, she even has two more versions in the works!

Nadia @Sleepylittledarlings made this stunning version, blue and whites are always a winner!

Angela @spicyredhead is all ready for the holiday with this cute Christmas version, just look at the polka dot sashing!

Gwen @gosewing81 used a black background with green batiks which makes for an absolutely amazing quilt top!

Anne @batiksbythebay also used black sashing with blue batiks and it looks just like stained glass, I can’t stop staring at it.

Lisa @ljbulas made a beautiful rainbow version using one of my favorite fabric lines, Redux by Giucy Giuce. 

Jamie @quiltdrop is a super quilter.  She has already quilted and bound her quilt top, and she also quilted all three of my quilts.

Sue @quiltsue_ was the first one to complete a finished top, and then she made another rainbow one.  I love both of her versions!!

Sue @Susnquiltinator took on the biggest challenge and made a King sized quilt, she used Alma fabric by Ruby Star Society and the dark backing looks so good. 

Denise @dmking52512 created a super fun layout on her version, those oranges really pop!

Looking Glass Quilt Pattern Release

I’m so excited to release my first quilt pattern – The Looking Glass Quilt!  You can find the pattern in my Finley Fabric Etsy Shop.

The Looking Glass quilt can be made with a layer cake, fat eighth bundle, or fat quarter bundle.  I love using precuts for quilts because you can get a lot of different prints that all coordinate with each other.  When I was designing the quilt I wanted something specifically for fat eighths. Though they can sometimes be difficult to use they are one of my favorite precut sizes. After making my first Looking Glass quilt I then realized that I could easily use 10” squares and have even more of a color variation within the blocks. 

This quilt is also beginner friendly, it is made up of one block using three different prints each.  The blocks are laid out to have a mirrored window effect.  The quilt pattern has several diagrams to help you piece and layout the blocks properly. 

The Looking Glass quilt comes in SIX different sizes!!  The quilt pattern includes the following sizes: crib, lap, throw, large throw, twin and queen. 

I used a fat eighth bundle of Kate Spain’s Longitude Batiks collection for the quilt with the white background.  The background fabric is Kona Cotton in Snow.  The quilting was completed by Emilee Hathaway @emileehathaway.

I used a layer cake of Alison Glass’s Diving Board collection for the quilt with the black background.  The background fabric is Grunge in Iron by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics.  The quilting was completed by Sew Let’s Quilt It in Dallas, TX.
