Thanks for all your wonderful comments and purchases. I was so excited about my LILIANA kits and even more excited that they sold out in a day. Granted there were only 4, but still. It just makes me feel loved. :o) I am trying to get my hands on more fabric, so for those of you interested- keep looking, I may be adding more kits soon.
Until then, feast your eyes on this:
Maison Bleu is the name of the pattern I designed using 'Martinique' by 3 Sisters for Moda. It is made of the most creamy goodness when it comes to fabric. I seriously can't get enough of this line. It's classic 3 Sisters in every way. I'm still awaiting shipment, but there's kits coming for this pattern, too.
So here's the cool thing about this pattern: You can use yardage, a Jelly Roll, or a Layer Cake to make this quilt. The directions are written for all three!
The other thing that I'm so excited about is that it's my first pattern that uses an "on-point" setting. I could've set the blocks straight, but I LOVE the feel of them like this.
Lastly, I love the pencil border. I don't know what it's really called, but it's pretty skinny. Kind of hard to tell in the pic, but when the quilt is done the thin red border and binding create an awesome framing effect that I'm still drooling over.
Again, I'd love to hear your feedback on this one. I wasn't sure about producing this pattern. I feel it's a little less "Crazy Old Lady"-ish. Meaning: it has more of a traditional feel to it, rather than the funky twist I usually try to add in my patterns. Of course, a lot of that has to do with the line of fabric I chose. However, I fell madly in love with this quilt as I made it and knew there had to be SOMEONE out there that feels the same. Is it you?
