I mentioned the other day that my friends had been pushing me to finish the pattern for the Sewing Circle Tote. This is another pattern that I've been asked to publish, and I'm happy to say that both the Iron Cozy and the Sewing Circle Tote patterns will be available on Monday, April 1.
This is part of a series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. This month, I'm making a variation on the Fire Drill quilt.
Last week, I talked about my plan for making a "back-as-front" version of my Fire Drill quilt. The quilt top I ended up making is still based on the back of Fire Drill, but I switched things up a little bit (including going with a white background instead of the linen I had planned to use).
I finished a couple of samples this morning and I like them so much that I had a hard time leaving them at Modern Domestic!
I'll be teaching a text quilts workshop there this Spring that will cover two methods of adding letters to your quilt projects. I'll post again when I have exact dates for my upcoming classes but, in the meantime, I just couldn't wait to share photos of these pillows! You can read about the classes here.
I'm finally back from Austin and will post about the wonderfulness that was QuiltCon as soon as I get a few hours of sleep! In the meantime, my first order of business is reopening my shop and listing a new pattern.
The Marmalade quilt was designed for and displayed at QuiltCon 2013 and one lucky winner (who we'll announce on the MQG blog shortly) will get to call it their own. The pdf pattern was included on the Pattern Mixtape thumb drive from the QuiltCon goodie bags and is now available available for purchase individually.
Through March 3, take 25% off your purchase of 2 or more patterns by using the discount code MARMALADE at checkout.
This is part of a year-long series of posts about the quilts from Modern Patchwork. I'm highlighting a different quilt each month, and will be remaking each of the book quilts in some way. Right now, I'm playing catch-up with this holiday version of the Rapid City quilt (Pages 42 - 51 in Modern Patchwork). My previous posts about this project are here and here.
I feel a little silly posting this one so long after Christmas, but it's one more card off the wall, so here we go!
