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!!

Swatches

I've really enjoyed the time I set aside for myself to create new designs and quilts not tied to a deadline.  One of the projects I was able to work on and complete, which is always a bonus, is my Swatches quilt!

Swatches

This quilt was inspired from my oil painting days; sketches, painter palettes, paint tubes, canvases, brushes, lighting and other images both concrete and abstract.  I designed this quilt to convey a feeling more than actual objects tied to painting.

I’m finding that more and more I’m merging my first creative love, oil painting, with my current creative love in my quilt designs.  I've even started working with watercolors again mainly because the clean up is so easy. 

Swatches

I chose the quilting to add interest and depth to the design. I took some risks, like black thread echos around the paint swatches and hand quilting the small grey squares. Most of the quilting is fairly dense and I was shocked when blocking the quilt to find out the length shrunk by 3”.

I really want to explore more quilt related watercolors.  I even painted a picture of my Banner Day quilt.  I think Swatches is a good candidate for a watercolor too.

Lastly, have you been over to my Etsy shop lately?  I've been adding patterns and several patterns are now available in a printed format.  My next pattern release will be my Trellis quilt pattern at the beginning of May!  So keep checking out my shop for all the new releases.

"For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty." 2 Pet 1:16

  1. I'm glad you have some time to play and create without a deadline. I'm looking forward to time this summer to do the same!

    Isn't it amazing how dense quilting can really shrink a quilt? I love keeping track of the information and I don't know that I have any amazing conclusions from it all over the years, but it is rather fascinating.

    1. I was really shocked by how much it changed. I've had a quilt shrink up to 1 inch but this far exceeded that. I also used a cotton-wool batting instead of all cotton and I'm not sure if that had an effect on the shirking or not.

  2. I love ONE: time to do whatever you want and TWO: connecting two of your creative loves. Very cool!

    1. I was over due for some me sewing for sure. I don't mind deadlines but being able to create without is very refreshing.
