PreQuilt Partnership

Image
At QuiltCon this year I was introduced to Laura through a mutual friend.  She was super sweet and she invited me to share some of my designs/patterns through her company PreQuilt!  I have three patterns that launched on their site this week and am very excited about this opportunity and to share what a great service PreQuilt offers to quilters.
PreQuilt is a great resource for quilters looking to customize a pattern to their own color palette.  When you sign up with PreQuilt you get to experiment with different color options for a pattern and then purchase a digital version of that pattern all on their site.




Currently I am offering my designs Jawbreakers, Positive Illuminations and Sparrows at Play on the PreQuilt platform.



I hope you will check out the PreQuilt site have some fun playing with color and customizing so many great patterns on their site.  I think PreQuilt is a great tool for quilters and a great way to explore your own creativity so I hope you check their site out!!

I don't usually devote an entire post to a work in progress but it's been a while since I've posted anything.  Life has been crazy.  First I went on vacation, then we experienced the worse power outages in 126 years, next my daughter's 2nd birthday and finally Thanksgiving.  Not leaving much time for quilting.  I did manage to finish a quilt top today (60 x 72):
My inspiration is an Ashley Goldberg print, design 0440a.


It might not be in the "spirit" of improv sewing to follow a pattern but I needed to ease into the technique.  Just going for it was overwhelming I found I could conquer not measuring, figuring, and cutting  a block at a time.  I think the improvisation mimics the casual feel of the original print. 
Time to sandwich.  I'm trying to decided between two cotton and steal fabrics for the backing both from the Paper Bandanna line:


I can't wait to see this quilt finished.  Happy Thanksgiving!
