PreQuilt Partnership

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!!

Petal Patch for the MQG

Last year I submitted a design for the Modern Quilt Guild's quilt of the month and was thrilled to find out it was accepted but with a catch.  The MQG was starting a new quarterly format with a common color palette.  I was thrilled to try out the new format and adjusted my design, here is Petal Patch:

The MQG did an amazing job finding a fabulous photographer and stylist and were kind enough to allow me to use their images of Petal Patch from their new website, www.modernmonthly.com .

The color palette was a soft modern palette with tans, aquas, corals, grey and black.  Not my usual colors but it was nice to have a challenge and to try once again to make brown modern.  I wanted to use as much of the color palette as possible and I manged to use all but one color, the light coral.

What I love most about this quilt is the secondary pattern created by the two blocks in the design.  The blocks are fairly simple but combined it creates petals and flowers that flow over the quilt.  I also enjoyed working with the Moda Bella Solids and Quilters Dream cotton batting.

If you've ever thought about designing your own quilts or writing patterns the Modern Quilt Guild is an excellent avenue to get you started.  They are very supportive and everyone is so friendly and easy to work with.  I really encourage anyone debating about entering the world of pattern writing to give it a shot and submit a design or two to the MQG.

I hope everyone gets a chance to check out the Modern Monthly website and the patterns and other resources are free to MQG members.

    1. Thanks! I wouldn't have picked that palette either but it was nice to have the challenge of working with someone else's color choices. I'm really pleased with how it all came together.

  3. This is such a pretty design, Heather. I didn't know you were asked to use a particular color combination. You made it work so beautiful. I keep wishing I could design, but wishing doesn't make it happen. :-) I'm so glad you're sharing your giftedness with all of us. Thank you!

    1. Thanks Cheryl. It was different for sure but it was nice to have the fabrics supplied by Moda and to have the MQG take the photos. I'm not a fabulous photographer so that was a great benefit for me.
