Bloom quilt

Bloom MTsmall front

My Bloom quilt pattern is back! I first released this design way back in 2012 to coincide with the release of my Sew Stitchy fabric line for Moda.  It has been unavailable for a few years but after repeated requests I've reintroduced it to my line up of patterns.

The cover design shows how the quilt would look made up in my new Make Time fabric line for Moda. Precuts of the line are now available with yardage to follow soon. The pattern requires a fat eighth bundle for the flower like design at the centre. I've paired this with a Moda Bella Solid in Galactic for the background fabric and Moda Bella Solid in Bronze for the centre. Binding is Bias Stripe in Strawberry from Make Time.  I'd suggest either the Scissors print in Iris or Check in Strawberry for the backing fabric but really any of the Pins or Sampler print colorways would work perfectly.

Make Time 7

This month sees the release of my newest fabric line - Make Time - for Moda Fabrics. Precuts have already started arriving in stores with yardage due to follow in a few weeks.

I put this group together during summer 2020. Foremost in my mind was that the act of creating had become an essential part of getting myself through some of the trickier emotions thrown up as a result of the pandemic. 

I pulled together a collection of my artwork that reflected the tools, fabrics and textures that both facilitate and inspire me to make. There are the ever present scissors, simple cross stitch motifs inspired by samplers, pins, checks and woven details. I wanted to keep the group simple and fun with easy to use prints in soft and pretty colours.

If you know me at all you'll know that I was already dreaming up pouches and organisers while putting this group together. I wanted to create the kind of fat quarter bundle you could just grab and have fun auditioning fabric combinations for future pouch possibilities.

Or if quilts are more your thing, all you need do is decide between layer cakes...

Whatever you decide upon, I hope you have fun playing with the possibilities and making time to make.
