Tying the Knot - A New Happy Quilting Pattern!!!

 Today I am super excited to share a new pattern and quilts today!!!   Here is Tying the Knot!!! I had so much fun designing and making this quilt.  The blocks actually go together on point, so it is a nice mix up from regular old piecing!!!  It really is just such a happy quilt :)  

The  Tying the Knot Pattern can be found in my Etsy Shop in both a Paper version as well as a PDF version.  And it is on Special (along with all of my patterns :)  for it's release with PDF Patterns at $5.50 and the Paper Patterns are $7.00!  The patterns are full color and the paper version is in book format.  

Tying the Knot is really a great quilt to make!  If you didn't notice, this quilt "floats" so there are no points that you have to worry about  lining up.  This makes it great for beginners, and experts will also have fun with it as well!!     The quilt is made with some basic piecing techniques and the blocks go together on point with setting triangles.  But no worry, I left you a little wiggle room so you can trim each block to perfection!!   The cornerstones are just so cute and set the blocks off perfectly :)

This version of  Tying the Knot is made with Songbook a New Page by Fancy That Design House for Moda Fabrics! I just love these beautiful Colors and the prints are just gorgeous.    And of course, the sky is the limit on which fabrics you make it from, and it is always so fun to see all of the different fabric choices you all make!!!  The quilt is Fat Quarter Friendly, so you can Grab a Bundle and get cutting!!!  

I quilted this version of  Tying the Knot with some major custom quilting.  I did all over echoed paisleys in the background to really give lots of movement.  Then in the blocks I did Figure 8's, scalloped feathers, wavy lines, and pebbles.   And I did the cornerstones with little swirls.  I just love how it came together, but I will admit, it took a little while to get this giant quilt done with so much quilting ;)    But it was totally worth it for such pretty texture!!

And after I got the big Queen size quilted . . . I just couldn't help but make a Baby size   Tying the Knot !!!   I used low volume fat quarters from Meadowmere  that I had leftover from my Bountiful quilt. .  I just love how the metallic shines off of that beautiful Charcoal background!!  Isn't that just so fun, and a great way to use up some more Low Volumes!!! 

I quilted the baby size in an all over loose feather design. It was fast and fun and perfect for this little quilt.   And up close, you can see how I fussy cut all of the bees for the cornerstones and center of the blocks.   So cute!!!  

And if you are like me, and want to make multiple sizes, you can find the sizes that work just right for you!!!  The pattern has 6 size options :  Baby, Lap, Picnic, Twin, Queen and King.  So now you can make all the sizes :)  

And that is my new  Tying the Knot quilts and Pattern!!!  And remember this preview from a few weeks ago , , , It's the Twin size :)  

 And you might recall, but my Happy Quilting Patterns have a new look!!!  But no worries, they are still filled with full color - wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way.   You are going to have so much fun making these quilts ;)  And of course,  if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out to me ;)       And thanks to the  . . .
