Pattern number 5 is here! Harvest Star is a big block quilt with a big impact! (Buy it here) It is also my first block-based design. When I first designed it, I tried a lot of different things for the block corners. I knew I wanted them to form a secondary pattern, but I wasn’t sure what. When I saw the stars, I knew it was perfect. Want to see all the Harvest Star quiltsContinue reading
I’m so excited to introduce Bear Path, Patchwork & Poodles’ FOURTH pattern!! Buy Bear Path: As with every pattern release, I work really hard to make each one as perfect as I can so that you can have the best pattern making experience! That includes making multiple versions myself to iron out any tweaks. The first Bear Path I made was as a baby gift for my sister. Although I liked the first design, I keptContinue reading
I’m so excited to introduce Patchwork & Poodle’s third pattern, Zesty! I love orange peel quilts, which is slightly problematic since I don’t enjoy cutting or sewing curves. So I set out to create a modern twist on an orange peel quilt that didn’t involve curves. And while I was at it, let’s exclude template and foundation paper piecing too. Thus, creating a pattern that uses nothing but basic quilt blocks to create a stunningContinue reading

I used my Modern Crossing pattern, which comes with fabric requirements for two colors, threeContinue reading

Ever since I made my throw-sized Nutcracker Suite quilt, I knew I wanted to make a baby version too! Other projects kept coming in the way, but finally I pulled out my fabrics (these had been purchased and planned for, oh, at least two months already), and got to work. I don’t know why it took so long to get this to you, but I can say that I’m glad I finally made it. NotContinue reading
I’m so excited to introduce you to my first quilt pattern, the Modern Crossing quilt! Modern Crossing is a block-based quilt pattern in two sizes, baby and throw; and three color variations, two-color, three-color, and scrappy. The pattern is available as a pdf download from my shop.
Are you ready for the holidays? The turkey has been eaten, the shopping has happened, and everyone is looking towards the man in the big red suit. At least in my house we are! I’ve been feeling the holiday spirit even before Thanksgiving happened (shh, don’t tell anyone!) Last year I bought a Christmas-themed fabric panel, intending to turn it into throw pillows for our living room. I took it out this year, and whenContinue reading
