New pattern #1 coming soon!

I wrote a few new quilt patterns in the last month or so.  My creativity seems to be waking up after a long snooze!

Cascade will be one of four new Canuck Quilter patterns making their debut on Leap Day at a pattern launch event at Quilting Connection in Ames. Leap Day just seemed like a good day to do something special.  If you are local, I hope you'll pop in sometime that afternoon to say hi and check out my quilts. 

I was excited about this one and I immediately cut into fabric to test it.  I conveniently had a snow day off from work the next day and by that afternoon I had a completed quilt top.  That is a new record for me.  Granted, it has a lot of big pieces, but still.  I usually stall at adding the borders but I pushed through this time.

It still needs to be quilted. I think I'll try a different design in each color, and very simple straight lines in the background.  I don't think I'll get it done in time for Saturday.  Being sick for over a week derailed my plans!  Still, I'll have the top, and another version in a completely different colorway and fabric style. Wait till you see the difference fabric choice makes!

I'm so happy with this one that I won't dwell on the fact that I just replenished the green scrap collection I worked hard to deplete in January.

Check back on Saturday for the full top and a pattern launch sale!


  1. I like what I see so far! Hope you have fun Leap Day, and make lots of sales of your pretty patterns.


  2. Looking forward to seeing the whole thing - but from what little I see looks wonderful!

  3. Great to hear your creative spirit has returned! Love what I can see of this design :-)

  4. J'adore ces verts, un avant-goût de printemps ! Ton quilt a l'air magnifique, j'ai hâte de le voir en entier ! Je reviendrais demain... ;-))
