I know as quilters that we're all partial to our quilts, and we love them (most of the time, except when they're driving us crazy) unconditionally, but I have to tell you - this really is one of my personal favorites. I love bright colors, and this quilt not only uses great fun bright colors, but I love this block. Say hello to my newest PDF quilt pattern, Color My World!
Originally featured in Quiltmaker late last year, this quilt was sewn up in Vanessa Christensen's first fabric collection for Moda, Simply Color. I still have a lot of these prints in my stash, because they are such great stash staples! I just love tonal prints like these, they go with everything. The PDF pattern is nine pages long, chock full of tips to help you plan out and sew up your quilt. There's even a coloring page to give you the opportunity to plan out your colors and fabrics before sewing a stitch!
This quilt is a block-based quilt, with a block that is centered around a classic snowball block. Using some simple squares placed methodically, a connection is created throughout the blocks. An additional connection is made by the way I staggered the blocks by color - and I just love the hexagons that are created where the blocks meet!
I had some great pattern testers run through this pattern and create some beautiful quilt tops of their own. Kelie, Jill and Tsoniki, thank you all so much! I really appreciate your help, and I love the quilt tops you guys made :)
Through the long holiday weekend (which is perfect for putting together a new quilt top, by the way!), you can pick up this pattern on sale for $6. The pattern sale will end next Tuesday, September 3rd. You can purchase this pattern through my Pattern Shop or Craftsy, whichever you prefer. As always, I'd love to see your creations with this pattern in my Flickr group, Stitching with Don't Call Me Betsy. Have a great day everyone!
