Dry spell is over, new quilt pattern for download

I’ve had a bit of a dry spell recently when it comes to quilting. The creativity is there, the time to execute isn’t.

But since I made a New Year’s resolution to finish two quilts for every one I started, I’ve been able to finish two quilts already this year. Just a few days into January I put the final stitches in the binding of my sister’s wedding quilt. I’ll share photos of that one once she sees it.

Then last weekend I put the final stitches in my Winter Blues quilt. It is the smaller version of the king sized version that is one of the five I really want to finish this year. I finished this one first because I wanted to practice the quilting stitch before I tried it out on the one for my bed.

Plus the fabric line I found was just amazing and I couldn’t resist making a smaller version from it. I used a jellyroll and coordinating yardage to make it. I love how the quilt looks with all the fabrics in the line, but the jellyroll wasn’t cut true, which became a problem when I put on the borders.

Let’s just say that I broke all the rules I tell my quilting students when it comes to pressing fabric in order to manipulate the fabric to make it square again.

The pattern for the lap-sized version is available at online in my Craftsy Pattern Store. Click here to download it.
