Tying The Knot Quilt - Pattern Coming Soon!!!

 Today I am thrilled to be sharing my newest quilt finish with you featuring the gorgeous Moonbeam Dreams Fabric Collection by Amanda Grace!! I just love Poppie Cotton's collections, and am always so happy to sew with them.  If you haven't tried Poppie Cotton, I highly recommend it.  The quality of the fabric is amazing, and the colors and prints are always just gorgeous!!!   As soon as these prints arrived at my house I knew just what I wanted to make with them!!!  This Tying The Knot quilt is a design that I have been working on for a new pattern (that is coming very soon), and I was just so excited to see it made up with a dark background!! 

This Tying The Knot quilt is so much fun to make and it is Fat Quarter friendly, so you can just grab a Fat Quarter Bundle and get to cutting and piecing in no time!!!   All you need is to add some background fabric. I used Licorice Black Country Confetti for my background fabric and I just love how it  makes all of those beautiful prints and colors just pop :)   And the pattern will have an option for a scrappy binding, which is always my favorite.  Howe cute are those pops of colors around the edge!!! 

And while this might look a little complex, it truly is a great beginner quilt with some easy to learn techniques.   It is made with Stitch and Flip units and basic piecing.   And everything in the block "floats" so you don't have to worry about lining up an y points :) So fun!!!

And when it came time to quilt mine, I opted for all over open centered swirls.  I haven't done these in a little while, and I forgot just how fun they are to quilt ;)   And a beautiful black thread blended perfectly in the background, and added lots of fun texture to the prints.  So great!!

 And the nice thing is, the Tying the Knot pattern will have multiple size options, so you can make whatever size you need. The pattern will be released the week after Thanksgiving Holiday (Along with a few more new patterns!!)    I would have loved to have them in my shop already, but I'll be honest, I am still finishing the quilting on the original ;)  But soon, very soon, and you can look forward to an "After Black Friday - Black Friday Sale"!!!  

And that is my Tying the Knot quilt! I hope you have enjoyed this post and consider making your own Tying the Knot Quilt very soon!!! And if you do, I would love to see them! You can share your projects with me on social media with the hashtags  #happyquiltingwithmc and #tyingtheknotquilt and tagging @happyquiltingmc or email me a picture at I can't wait to see your Tying the Knot Quilts!!
