Midtown Quilt Pattern

Today I get to introduce you to to the new Midtown quilt pattern! It's the latest addition to the A Bright Corner pattern catalog.

Midtown is a precut friendly pattern with plenty of size options for you to choose from. And before you're frightened off by all of those little squares, I have to let you know that this pattern uses quick strip piecing techniques so those rows sew up fast!

And the Midtown pattern started as a scrap buster quilt so of course there are instructions for making a scrappy version too.

This quilt is called Wrap Around and I made this quilt top for a tutorial here on my blog showing how to sew a partial seam - but I recently quilted it up and thought I'd share it here.

Plot Twist Crib Quilt

 Hello friends

Today I'm sharing a sweet little crib sized version of the Plot Twist quilt pattern.

The crib size of the Plot Twist pattern is perfect for using one pack of precut 10" squares (like a Layer Cake or 10" Stacker). 

That's what I used for this quilt, and it was super handy because some of the cutting was already done for me!

A Wholehearted Crib Size Quilt

 Hello friends today I'm sharing a sweet little crib sized Wholehearted quilt made from a new fabric line from Poppie Cotton.

Wholehearted quilt pattern details

Honestly it's been delightful working with these spring-colored fabrics this week. It reminds me that spring (and the flowers it brings) is just around the corner! 

Wholehearted is a sampler style quilt pattern that is fat quarter friendly and includes four size options. This little quilt is the crib size and used just 6 fat quarters along with some background fabric.
