School will be starting before too much longer, but you have time to make this School Days Quilt for a special student in your life!
This quilt is a great size for a child, 49 1/2″ x 59 1/2″ but is also easy to adjust the size for a larger or smaller quilt. School Days is a pieced and appliqué quilt – the windows and radiator on the school bus are appliquéd. Buttons for the headlights add embellishment.
This pattern is now available through Craftsy for purchase and download.
I want to introduce you to my newest fabric collection “Wild Flower” from Quilting Treasures! I love the bold bright colors of this colection and hope that you will too.
The main print features a black and white zebra animal skin print with yellow, fuchsia pink and orange flowers scattered randomally on top of the black and white print. Coordinating fabrics include a black and white as well as an orange and fuchsia pink zebra stripe fabrics. Other fabrics include a smaller flower design on each black and white backgrounds and tonal fabrics in several colors to round out the collection.
The “Wild Flower” collection will be in independent shops sometime during this month of October and can be ordered by shops now from Quilting Treasures.
I am getting ready to attend the fall Houston International Quilt Market and will also be at the International Quilt Festival that follows market. I will be in and out of Quilting Treasure’s booth as well as the Gutermann thread booth during Market and in the Gutermann booth during Quilt Festival. I would love to meet all of you who may be attending either show, so please stop by!
Also, please check back for some free patterns with the “Wild Flower” fabrics. I have designed several quilt and sewing patterns to go with this collection and will post as soon as they are completed.
Well, back to prep for Quilt Market. I hope that you are having a colorful week!
