Jelly Beans - Published!!

So do you remember my "A Study in Quilting" quilt I made for Volume 8 of 100 Blocks??  Well I was super thrilled when the folks at Quiltmaker asked if they could publish the pattern for the quilt in the regular issue of Quiltmaker!!  So fun!!!


It will be in the May/June issue which will be hitting stores soon ;)  The quilt has been renamed Jelly Beans.  How fun for this time and year.  


It doesn't show up much in the professional pictures but I used all different tones of neutral solids in the background.  I love the look it created and it also cleaned out my solid neutral scrap drawer.  Bonus!!  The print fabrics are Terrain by the ever wonderful Kate Spain,


I just love how this quilt was created with such an easy block but has a wonderful secondary pattern created when those blocks are put together.  So if you loved it too and want the pattern, watch for the next issue of Quiltmaker.  There are tons of other great quilts in this issue as well, like that adorable sheep quilt on the cover made by Deonn Stott!!   

That's all for today.  Have a Happy One :)

  14. YEA for you! I'm a subscriber so mine should show up soon. I love the Sheep quilt. This Mary has lots of little lambs here that don't need to be fed and they don't POOP all over either.
