I am so happy to share my latest PDF quilt pattern with you all this morning! Introducing...the Wheel of Fortune PDF pattern, including block templates for making a 6" finished block and 12" finished block, now available in my Pattern Shop and on Craftsy!
I first made this quilt for my partner in the Doll Quilt Swap, using the 6" block, rainbow scraps and Kona grays in Ash and Coal for the background fabrics. My doll quilt is 18" square, and an example of the mini size quilt pattern available in this PDF pattern. I love the way the blocks have a sparkly feeling to them, thanks to the use of various values throughout each section of the block. This little mini is heading off to its new owner this week, and I can't wait to hear what she thinks of it.
I also made a second quilt using this pattern, switching to a larger 12" block size and using two main colors rather than a rainbow. I am really loving the combination of coral and navy right now, so this quilt was a perfect chance for me to use this color combo in a quilt. I used prints from Luxe in Bloom, Constellations, Seaside, Greenfield Hill, Sherbet Pips, Les Amis, and Deerfield, as well as from Madrona Road and Architextures for the background fabrics. This baby quilt finished at 36" x 48", and is bound in Kona Mango, which is a delicious coral color, perfect for setting off all of these prints.
The Wheel of Fortune PDF quilt pattern is available now both in my Pattern Shop and on Craftsy, for $10. The pattern includes instructions for making a mini 18" quilt, a baby sized 36" x 48" quilt, a lap sized 60" x 72" quilt, a queen sized 84" x 96" quilt, and a king sized 96" x 108" quilt, complete with detailed cutting and piecing instructions to make this quilt a breeze to put together.
