Secret Garden

Remember that stack of quilts I was teasing you with a couple weeks ago?

Well, here is the firs of 5 new patterns that we have. I absolutely fell in love with this fabric line from the moment I saw it. It's EDEN by Lila Tueller for Moda. I love the spring-y-ness of it. Honestly, my photos do it no justice- you have to see this one in person.




This quilt pattern was one I designed over a year ago and finally found the right fabric for the job. I love how it all blends together and takes your eye a moment to see the pattern. I've done it in more contrasting prints too, and am equally pleased with the results.

At last minute I decided to pull it out of mu 'unfinished' pile and snap a quick pic to show you. I made this one out of a Heather Mulder Peterson line. I think the contrast is striking. (Please forgive the wrinkles)




So, what do you think?

Let me know your opinion of my new pattern and you may just WIN one! :o)

I love the look of this new pattern! I'm thinking I'd like to make the 'background' fabric the zinger fabric and everything else blend..,.possibilies galore!

I love the subtle design the white fabric creates. Very fun.

Oh I love that 2nd one with the contrasting fabrics, it's lovely!!!!!!

Melinda said...

I like both of them but the contrasting one is especially wonderful.

Judy said...

I really like your new pattern and think the name of "Secret Garden" so fits the quilt made from the "Eden" fabric.

I love the second quilt. It is so beautiful! I just found your blog and can't wait to see what other patterns you have!

Deb said...

I love the pattern and the way it makes the striking effect in the second quilt picture. Really, really nice!

jlk said...

love it! you're right, it takes a minute to see the pattern, but it's awesome once you do.

Barb said...

I especiallly love the last one, love the movement...

Connie said...

I love the 2nd top the color are so pretty, Like the first one also and that is a good name for your pattern.It is a pattern you can work with and that is good! Happy Sewing !

This is such an intriquing pattern. I found myself staring intently at the pic to figure out the pattern. Then I read that you might be giving a pattern away and figured if I win the pattern I don't have to give myself a headache trying to figure out this small pic. :-) Take care and God bless, Cory

Love, love this new pattern! The color possibilities are endless!

Jane said...

Love them both!!! When you look close you see it's a fairly easy pattern to do but the end result makes it looks way more complicated...I love it for that reason and both quilts are very nice!!!

Shasta said...

It is a beautiful quilt pattern - both are beautiful quilts. I really like the trip around the world setting, and saw that setting in a log cabin, and this one is even better, much more interesting.

I love the subtlety achieved using Eden--that line is so yummy. Using more contrast, like with Heather's fabrics, makes the pattern diamonds really pop. I really like the versatility of your new pattern! Hope you let us see the other real soon :0)

Amber said...

You've outdone yourself! It took me a minute for my eyes to focus and see the pattern. Good blend of spring!! I long for green! I originally thought it was a "new way" to go "around the world". You Rock!!!

I ♥ the second design! I just bought a bunch of Chez Moi fat quarters and have been looking for a neat pattern that contrasts with white to make my youngest daughter a quilt....I think this is going to be 'the one'!

...so we added chickens said...

What a great pattern! I really like the diamond pattern that gives it a bit of movement. I can't decide whether I like it better in the subtle fabrics or the more striking fabrics. I definitely like the border you chose for the Lila Tueller version - the white bands that extend vertically really appeal to me.

Sherri said...

This really is a great pattern...and it is stunning with the Heather Mulder Peterson fabrics!

Darlene B said...

I love the pattern - especially the sample done in Heather's fabrics. Love it! dsb448@att.net

I really like your new design, very much. I also love the colors & fabrics you used in both of these quilts. This design certainly lends itself well to a planned pallette and I think it would work well for scraps too.

And I'd love to win one and give this design a try!
