Little Folks Voile Quilt

About a million years ago, I bought a whole ton of Little Folks Voile when it was on a crazy good sale and it has been preserved on a shelf on my sewing room ever since. It is so soft. The colors are so pretty. It was too precious to cut.

But this year I have decided it is time to start cutting into that precious stuff . . . but I didn't want to cut it TOO much. That is where the idea for this pattern was born.

The Rachel Quilt is a layer cake friendly pattern (I actually cut my 10" squares from fat quarters, it still worked out fine!) that highlights your favorite fabrics without having to cut them up into tiny little pieces.

The Rachel Quilt - A New Pattern

I have a new pattern for you today - this is The Rachel Quilt and it is available as a PDF or paper pattern. It is 20% off in my shop for the rest of the week.

One of my goals with writing patterns has been to write at least one with each type of precut. I have done one that uses a charm pack, one that uses jelly roll strips, and a few different patterns that use fat quarters (herehere, and here) and now I have one that uses a layer cake.

Writing a pattern that did the layer cake justice was a little challenging. Sure, you can always sew 10" squares together to make a patchwork quilt, but it is nice to have a pattern that is simple to construct but that LOOKS like it is tricky.

I wanted a pattern that kept the layer cake squares intact to show off the fabrics and that came together quickly. But I didn't want it to just be a way to use up a layer cake that you have sitting on your shelf - I wanted it to be fun!

I have a (very last minute) Valentine's Tutorial for you today! This one is based on a table runner that I made back in 2014.

It is great for scraps or to bust through some of your stash (I am doing a little of both for my quilt). Normally I wouldn't post a tutorial before I have finished my own version, but since Valentine's Day is in a week, I wanted to make it available ASAP. My version is going to be very scrappy, but you could also make the quilt with limited fabrics like I did in my table runner version.

I am a huge fan of Alison Glass, so when I was asked if I wanted to work with her new Sunprint collection, my arm did not have to be twisted ;)

I was originally planning on updating my Alice Quilt pattern, but then I sketched this quilt up in EQ8 and decided it would make a great new, layer cake friendly pattern.

When I originally started working on my Olivia Quilt Pattern, I knew that I wanted to make an I-spy version.

My stash of fussy cut-able prints really took a hit when I made my Fussy Cut Sampler quilt last year so finding prints that were the right colors took some work, but I am so happy with how this colorful, fun little quilt turned out.
