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!!

 LOST GEESE Lost Geese was inspired by a pillow of metallic triangles.  I just couldn't capture the look I wanted without true metallic fabrics.
UNTITLED I'm not sure where I was going with this so I just stopped before I got too far into the process.  I think the right fabric choices and this could be great.

SUBMARINES I like this design I just don't think I'd make this quilt.  Again this was inspired from a shape on a pillow, it reminded me of a submarine.

I hope eve…

Those were the first words out of my mouth when I received one of two acceptance letters from the MQG in my inbox today.

I am completely surprised and thrilled and excited and shocked!  Two of the three original quilts I entered in to Quiltcon West 2016 were accepted into the show!!  The lucky quilts are:


I want to give a big thanks to Jennifer from Simply Imagined Photography for taking such beautiful pictures of my quilts I know it helped in the selection process.
Let us not forget Canoe Paddles.  Unfortunately, Canoe Paddles was not selected even though it is the nearest and dearest to my heart.  In addition to my original three entries I also entered a quilt for the Michael Miller fabric challenge and two other quilts since I had two more entry spots to fill, Paris Medallion and Chest of Drawers, none of which were accepted.  That said I am overjoyed to have any quilts accepted at all.
My head is still in a whirl over the two entries and I couldn't be more pleased with the o…
