Back in the Saddle

Wow! It's amazing what a simple med change can do. A few months back I ranted about the struggles I was having. You can read about it here. Since then I have made a few changes in hopes of feeling better. The first was to change a couple necessary medications and the second was to start taking whole food supplements. Both seem to be helping quite a bit. I still need to implement an exercise routine but one thing at a time, people! :o)

Anyway, now that I'm slowly starting to feel like me again I've started catching up on some neglected areas of my business. Mainly my Etsy Shop (dun dun DUN!)

I spent the better part of the day adding a TON of patterns that hadn't previously been listed and re-listing those that have been sold out. Did you know Etsy does PDF downloads now? I didn't. That's how out of the loop I've been. :o)

Among the patterns listed are my brand new TECHNICOLOR quilt patterns. Which I haven't even shown here yet. So... here we go. :o)

Boomerang was the crowd favorite at market and it's my favorite too. You may remember the naming contest I had for this quilt back in March (here). Made up with TECHNICOLOR and a little trick in my technique and you have a fabulous new quilt.

Hashtag was named for none other than an ode to social media. I blogged the original last September but finally got around to writing the pattern for the new fabric collection. This is a fun pattern because it has the instructions for two different layouts. :o)

Starstruck is a close second to my favorite. I've been wanting to make a 60° triangle quilt for a while now but wanted something a little different. I love how it turned out! The stars don't show up right away when you first look at it. When you finally see them it's a fun and unexpected surprise.

Union Square was one of those that came together so easily and with great results. This was one of those quilts that I almost abandoned because of it's simplicity. However I've learned that sometimes the simplest of quilt can have great impact. Less is more, right!?
Now on to the good news! Each of these new patterns is available in my Etsy shop right now in both paper and PDF download. Another exciting thing is that for the first time ever I have the PDF version of Which Witch available as well.
As a thank you to you for sticking with me I'm offering a coupon code for 20% off your Etsy purchase through the end of this week. It works on everything in my shop. Just use code TECHNICOLOR at checkout.

These are some seriously cool patterns!
I will give 2 tries to interpret these wavy words and then I will give up! They really discourage commenting (sorry, but they are not legible to me)

So glad you are feeling better. I like your new patterns and really like technicolor.

Yvonne said...

Glad your new med's are doing their job. Amazing new designs again, just wat a modern quilter could ask for.

Sharon said...

When will technicolor be in stores? Are there pre cuts available?

Beth said...

Glad you are feeling better.
Great to see the patterns, I remember the naming contest. Now I need to go shopping.
Love the fabric too BTW

Hey, Emily! I was wondering about the Boomerang pattern, is it FQ or charm pack friendly?
