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!
