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'd been noticing a trend in graphic art which combined geometric shapes and photography.  I thought that this could be done in a quilt and found a picture I took of Mt Baker.  I had the picture printed at Spoonflower and used fabric from my stash for the rest of the quilt even the backing!

Again, I used my walking foot to quilt this project with 50 weight thread.  I'm hoping to branch out with some free motion quilting but after I decided to practice every Monday I broke my darning foot, of course.  I now have a replacement and no excuse not to practice.

I also have to  share a picture of my daughter, CoraJoan, "helping."  She runs around taking pictures with an old camera, mostly pointed the wrong way but…
