I've been waiting for a super long time and have dropped a hint or two here and there but I finally get to share that last year I was asked to design, piece, bind and write the pattern for the QuiltCon 2019 Giveaway Quilt, Keyhole Kaleidoscope!

When I got asked to make the QuiltCon Giveaway Quilt I'd only done a few quilts on my longarm and knew that the work for this quilt had to be beyond stellar so I asked my friend, Christine Perrigo (@ccpquilt), to quilt it.  The quilt is 70" x 84" and Christine covered every square inch we amazing quilting!

This quilt features Moda Bella Solids with subtle color differences along with high contrast to create depth and movement and is available as a pattern on The Modern Quilt Guild website for $10.

Not only can you make this quilt for yourself, if you are currently at QuiltCon you can buy raffle tickets for a chance to WIN this quilt!!  If you're not a QuiltCon you can still buy the pattern or see it featured in QuiltCon M…

Colonnade and QuiltCon Magazine!

I've been keeping this secret since this summer and I finally get to share the fourth quilt heading to QuiltCon 2019, Colonnade!!

Colonnade

This quilt, and many other quilts from QuiltCon are available as patterns in the latest issue of QuiltCon Magazine instantly as a digital download or for preorder from The Quilting Company!

Along with the QuiltCon quilt patterns there are articles about this year's show and a gallery section featuring some amazing quilts that will be at the show.

This quilt has plenty of meaning to me for many reasons but one of my inspirations for the quilt was a dream I had where there was a beautiful portico drenched in warm light.  It uses equally warm colors and a repetitive pattern to mimic columns.

Colonnade Detail

I quilted the negative space with straight lines at different angles.  This creates depth and movement.  I actually messed up my quilting plan but didn't realize it until it was too late and just left the error.  I don't know if anyone will catch it, definitely not at first glance.

I have another quilt featured in QuiltCon Magazine but I'm going to save that announcement for later.

    1. Thank you Debbie!! I really fell in love with this color palette but I've always been drawn to autumnal colors.
