My next new pattern . . .
This pattern was designed to use the new Moda pre-cut hexagons called Honeycombs.
But never fear, if you don’t want to use a Honeycomb, the instructions include how to make it without that, just in case you were wanting to maybe possibly use up some scrappage?
The pattern is meant for teaching you how to do set-in seams, a technique that, once mastered on this easy quilt, you can apply to other quilts that might have set-in seams. You’ll no longer be afraid of them!
I’ll be teaching this quilt in a class at the Sweet Sewfull Event at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop in July. There are still some open slots in the class if you’re interested, and the Sweet Sewfull Event is chock full of fun quilty entertainment for that entire weekend, so there’s a bonus. Click HERE to find out more about the event, and sign up.
If you’re interested in the pattern, naturally I’m giving away 2 copies of it right here on the blog to celebrate it’s release. All you have to do to have a chance to win is comment on this post. I’ll draw for two winners on Friday, June 28. Winners can choose the printed version or the PDF version of the pattern.
I’ll have the pattern listed for sale in my Etsy shop by Friday, as well, so that if you don’t win, you can still get hold of a copy. You may also purchase the printed version of the pattern through Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, if you wish.
I’m not real pleased with my cover photo, and may end up replacing it when I get the quilt back in my possession. You can see that there’s never a shortage of help when doing a photo shoot here at the farm. I also had no choice but to shoot this one on a sunny day, which is also not helpful. I’ll leave you with some of the outtakes . . .
So can the horses. Cats do NOT have the market cornered on curiosity. Chip cannot stand to be left out of any photo shoot (hence the reason he’s in the cover photo).
It doesn’t help that I have a crappy camera and that I’m simply no good at photography. But I’ll keep trying. Maybe practice will eventually lead to being better, huh?
Don’t forget to leave a comment if you’d like to win a copy of the pattern. And I’ll be back with plenty more news this week . . . so check back.
