The Iris Quilt in Ombre

When I first started writing patterns, I generally only made one version of each one. In fact, it has been pretty rare for me to ever make a pattern more than once. But about a year ago I decided I wanted to try to make at least 2 versions before I released a pattern.

I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy this - I like to mix things up - but it has actually been great. Making the pattern once is fun, but making it differently is even more fun. 

The Iris Quilt - Pattern Testers' Quilts

Today I get to share my pattern testers's quilts with you! I know I say this every time, but I cannot express to you how grateful I am to all of these wonderful people. Every single time I am blown away by how much better they are able to help me make my patterns.

There is so much mental energy that goes into writing patterns and sometimes I just cannot see an issue or a better way to do something or a sentence that is confusing (or math that is just wrong!). And then on top of that, they make these beautiful quilts. Just wonderful.

So here they are - I am going to link to their IG accounts to so you can find them all over there.

Thank you all so much for your support with the Iris Quilt! I have been working on this pattern throughout the quarantine and I really wanted a HAPPY quilt for the cover. I was so excited to see Tula Pink's new True Colors collection and I knew it would be perfect.

This pattern took me several months to design because I had a lot of things I wanted to accomplish with one project. I wanted it to be quick, fabric efficient, lots of fun, useful for lots of different precuts, scrap friendly, etc. It took me a while to figure it all out, but I am so happy with the result. 

A New Pattern - The Iris Quilt

I am so excited to finally be able to share this quilt with you! My most popular quilt pattern has been my Tessa Quilt and I frequently have people ask me if that quilt is jelly roll or fat quarter friendly (it's not). A few months ago, I started to try to create a similar pattern that was jelly roll or fat quarter friendly.

And after a few months of playing around with different options, I came up with the Iris Quilt which is jelly roll AND fat quarter AND scrap friendly. It was worth the wait.

An Ella Quilt From my Stash

Earlier this year, I started a new Ella Quilt on a whim using some prints from my stash. But then . . . I completely forgot to share it!

I probably forgot to post about it because (1) it wasn't part of my plan and was just a fun project and (2) because it was so quick to put together. At least I remembered to take photos so it didn't get forgotten forever!
