Windy City Quilt + Gem Stones Brights

Lots of new things coming your way today!

I'm working on a new quilt pattern and I get to share a bit about it today along with a peek at some new fabrics.

Windy City quilt pattern by Andy of A Bright Corner - a jelly roll friendly quilt made with Gem Stones Brights fabrics.

The pattern is called Windy City and it will be available in my shop in a couple of weeks.  It's currently being tested and edited and I'm also working on two other versions in different sizes to share with you soon!

It's a fun quilt to piece, and these star blocks are a great way to play with color and contrast. 

This is the throw size of the quilt and it measures 55" x 65"

The fabrics I used for this version of Windy City are from a new line called Gem Stones Brights designed by Planted Seeds Designs (Riley Blake).  Gerri previously released a line of Gem Stones prints with deeper, rich colors but these new additions are so bright and vivid - I wish you could see them in person!

All of the Gem Stones prints are fun to work with because they have a gradient to them that runs from one selvage to another as you can see in the photos below.

Having that gradient on each 2.5" strip really makes for a unique look to each block!

 You can find Gem Stones Brights now in stores, and the Windy City quilt pattern will be heading you way soon.  I'll be sharing more about it in the coming weeks!

My Dahlia Quilt

This quilt has been done for awhile but I haven't yet shared it here with you!  If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen me working on these EPP Dahlia blocks over the past couple of years.

From start to finish this was about a two-year project, although I did set it aside for awhile to work on other things.

Lucky Star Quilt + Country Roads Fabrics

I've been slowly stitching away on this little project for about a month and it's been such a joy to work on.  


Lucky Star baby quilt pattern by Andy of A Bright Corner - a fat quarter quilt pattern from her book, Fresh Fat Quarter Quilts

I have a niece expecting her first baby soon so I'll be wrapping this up with a couple of favorite story books and sending it her way.  After working on a few larger projects, it's been nice to be able to work on a smaller baby quilt for a change.  

The pattern for this quilt is called Lucky Star and it's from my book, Fresh Fat Quarter Quilts.  Lucky Star uses just 6 fat quarters and it's pretty fast to make with just four large star blocks.

Don't forget to print this week's pattern sheet from the Fat Quarter Shop's blog here.

I love these star blocks.  I tried to use some of the bolder prints in these blocks so the white star points would stand out.  I love how scrappy they look!

Here's a photo of the full Shine Bright quilt from the book, Charming Baby Quilts.  Isn't it so fresh and lovely?  The Shine Bright quilt uses 3 charm packs and finishes at 56" x 56".
