New Patterns Fall 2013

     It feels like it's been SO long since I've released new patterns. I think mostly because I didn't go to market and I'm super glad I didn't because I got to see my children enjoy an entire week of Halloween to the fullest! Speaking of first pattern in this collection is called, Pixie. This pattern was one of my very favorites thus far. It was inspired by my little pixie, Remi and her little fairy wings. This pattern is easy to put together, but it does entail some small piecing...I won't lie. :)
     I tried really hard to keep it bright and fun, just like Remi's character. You won't see any white background in this quilt. Each square can be completed all on it's sashing here! And then when all the squares are complete, you just sew them together and voila! You have an adorable quilt!
     When finished this quilt measures 44" x 60" which was perfect for my little gal, but if you want it larger or smaller, you can just add more squares...It's so simple!
     This next quilt is another fun design inspired by barn doors....
      This pattern is fast and simple to put together! It comes with instructions for both barn doors, but would even be fun to make an entire quilt out of just one kind of barn door. Don't you think? This quilt measures 52" x 48" when finished. I was sent some fabrics from a fun new organic quilt shop to use on this quilt and I just loved the feel of it. These fabrics felt a little heavier but they were equally soft. The collection is Free Range by Monaluna Fabrics.
     This final pattern is one I've had in the works for several months and finally got around to finishing it! It includes a mini version of both my Poppins bag and my Jumbo Glam bag! These bags come together so quickly and use very little fabric! I became addicted very quickly.
     They are small enough to be framed in a 16 x 20 frame, but still have pretty much all of the same features as the large versions! I promise the Mini Collection won't disappoint!
     I am listing these patterns in my shop as we speak! And all will be available in PDF format next week. I hope you enjoy them and hopefully they were worth the wait!
     Also, many of you have been asking about when the Shore bags will be listed in the shop again...I'm hoping to get that done soon as well, but please be patient with me, I am only one little person. :) I have been so thankful for all of your continuing support with that bag though!
