2 New Patterns and Black Friday - Cyber Monday Sale!!!

 I am super excited this morning to share two brand new Quilt Pattern's in the Happy Quilting pattern lineup as well as having them ready just in time for this Annual Weekend Sale!!  (More on that further down ;)   

The first quilt is called Wishes and I just love how these stars twinkle!!!!    The quilt is made with  big blocks so you can make a queen size with just 16 blocks and it is super fun piecing, making it perfect for beginners and experts alike!!!

Wishes uses some basic piecing units along with a fun technique for making the lattice blocks, that has very little waste with a quick trim ensuring perfect piecing every time.  And there are very few points to worry about lining up as everything just floats in this quilt, and I just love that!!!

This version of Wishes is made using Balboa by Sherri and Chelsi for Moda Fabrics.    I love the prints and colors of this line, especially the purple!!!     But of course, Wishes would look amazing in any fabrics!!  The design is  Fat Quarter Friendly, so you can just grab a bundle and get cutting!!!!

And when it came time to quilt it I went all out.   I really wanted to make that center star just pop, so I did a Star of pebbles behind it and left the star un-quilted.  Isn't it just so fun!!!  I did ribbon curls and wishbones on the beams of light and then a lovely loose feather in the background.   It was just so fun to quilt and I was so happy that my favorite Pearl 402 So Fine thread blended perfectly in all the prints and background !!!  This one really was so super fun to quilt!!!! 

And I had so much fun making the first quilt, I just couldn't stop and decided to make up a lap size version as well :)    And isn't it just to cute for words!!!!

I thought it would be super fun to do a dark background and then low volumes for the prints!!!  I used Low Volume prints from Cookie Exchange by Sweetwater that I had saved and paired them with a lovely Charcoal background.   And don't they just pop!!!!  I love that this is Christmas too, because I think this design just works great for Christmas stars :)  

And I quilted it with all over swirls and just love how it almost adds a snow flurry to go with these Christmas Stars ;)    And I even used a scrappy Low Volume binding, so fun!!!!


Like all my patterns, Wishes has size options so you can make the quilt size that fits you ;)  You will find 5 size options, a Baby, Lap, Picnic, Twin, and a Queen size.  All the sizes are Fat Quarter Friendly., and all use a great big 21" block so the piecing goes nice and fast ;) 

So now onto Pattern Release 2 . . . Here is Scraptastic Stars!!!!  And I am just thrilled to be releasing this pattern because I love, love, love me some scrappy quilting!!!

Scraptastic Stars was originally I block I did a free pattern for way back here :)   For this new Happy Quilting pattern, I have increased the block size to 16" and added a wonderful Irish Chain setting to finish off the chain in the block. And isn't it just the perfect way to surround these blocks!!!   And I had such a great time doing all of the math for that Sashing Chain :)  I know it is weird, but I really like quilt math!!!   And the design even includes strip piecing in the chain to save you time piecing all of those little squares together.  

And I just love that Scraptastic Stars is all about busting scraps!!!  I increased the block size so that it is 2 1/2" square friendly as I know a lot of us like to cut our scraps to that size and it also makes it great for those little mini charm pre-cuts!!!   And you can even use scraps in the chain . . . I used a whole bunch of shades of white for the stars and chain and I love that it busted those scraps as well ;)

And when it came time to quilt it I went all out with the colors.  I picked out a rainbow of threads and changed colors for each block to really emphasis the rainbow of this quilt!!!  I quilted pebbles in the black, Arches in the white, and swirls in the colors :)  And I just love it!!!  And look at the beautiful quilty texture it made, so fun!!! 

And Scraptastic Stars also has size options so you can make the quilt size that fits you ;)  You will find 5 size options, a Baby, Lap, Picnic, Twin, and a Queen/King size.  Just start breaking your scraps into similar colors and see how many blocks you can come up with ;) 

 So now that you have seen the new quilts . . . Let's talk Patterns and Sales!!!

Pin It!


  1. Both are just fabulous, Melissa. I especially like the first one.

  2. I love both of your new patterns. I also love 2 things that you do with your patterns, the fact that you show the fabric requirements for each size before buying and that you give instructions for printing in book style.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
