New Pattern - Modern Postage Stamp Quilt

Happy Friday, I have a new pattern for you!

Recently I have been thinking that I would like to make some patterns that have 2 qualities:
1. They are very beginner friendly - this could be your first quilt ever and you would be OK
2. They work well with scraps
Scrappy Postage Stamp Baby Quilt
This is the first in a series of Super Simple, Beginner Friendly Patterns and it is called the Modern Postage Stamp Quilt. There are detailed instructions, lots of diagrams, and tips throughout the pattern.

My March Giant Block Quilt

My March Giant Block Quilt
I had a lot of fun making my Giant Block Quilt this month.

I knew that I wanted to do a quick, single block quilt (this is the 24" block) and I knew that (after recently making this quilt) I wanted to use some Carolyn Friedlander fabrics.

Gleaned Baby Quilt

Gleaned Baby Quilt
I had a bit of a mental battle on what to do with the Gleaned fabrics that were in the February Culcita Box so I went with the quilter's version of Occam's razer: the simpler option is always better.

While large, complicated projects can be their own kind of fun, there is something so nice about sewing something simple (this is something I have been thinking about a lot lately and, hint hint, there are some simple, quick, beginner-friendly patterns coming in the near future).

Sienna Quilt

Are you sick of seeing this block yet? This quilt is the 3rd time I have used this pattern, and it won't be the last.  I am a little bit addicted!

My Isabella Quilt

This is the large lap size version of my Isabella Quilt pattern - which makes it a whopping 78" x 78." In my opinion, that is the perfect snuggling-on-the-couch size.

Amalfi Quilt

You might have seen a couple photos of my Isabella Quilt in my post about the pattern, but I thought it needed its own post.

This quilt is the small lap size version from the pattern - I really like to have a couple of quilts around that are this size because they are perfect for sitting at my computer or on the couch. Also, my kids love this size.

The Isabella Quilt Pattern

I am so excited to share this quilt with you. This is The Isabella Quilt and the pattern is now available here.

The Isabella Quilt PDF Pattern

After making my Menagerie Quilt, I knew that I wanted to turn this block into a pattern. It uses a giant block - and was part of the inspiration behind my Giant Block Tutorial Series. It has instructions for a 4 Block or 9 Block version and then the option of adding a border for a total of 4 different sizes:

Baby/Child Size Quilt - 51" x 51"
Small Lap Quilt - 57" x 57"
Large Lap Quilt - 78" x 78"
Queen Size Quilt - 90" x 90"

Just like the January and February blocks, there are instructions below to make a 24" or 36" version of the block. There is also a suggestion on how to each block in a quilt.
