This quilt was originally featured in the spring 2013 issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, in Alison Glass's fabulous Lucky Penny bike path prints. It was a fun quilt to work on, but I knew I wanted to make another, both to run through the pattern again and to show a completely different color story.
I went with much softer fabrics for this baby size Sew Positive quilt, with a boatload of Free Spirit fabrics from Tula Pink and Joel Dewberry. The background fabric is a great tweed-y textured fabric from Jenn Ski's Mod Century line for Moda. I first fell in love with this fabric at Stash Bash when I spied Marla working on her Happy Pills quilt, and I"m so glad I hunted it down! I like how much softer this version of the quilt is - and I would wager to guess that this pattern would be stunning in low-volume prints as well.
I also had some great pattern testers work through the pattern, and make gorgeous interpretations of the quilt. They were not only full of great feedback, but great quilts of their own!
Erica from Kitchen Table Quilting used gorgeous Kaffe Fassett shot cottons for the pluses on her mini-sized version, which I just love.
The Sew Positive quilt pattern includes thorough step-by-step instructions and fabric requirements for making a mini, baby, lap, queen, and king size quilt. There's also lots of notes and tips on planning your quilt. Truly, Sew Positive is a simple quilt to make but it can make such a powerful visual impact with the right fabrics!
You can pick up Sew Positive, in PDF format, this week on sale for just $6. Next week, it will go up to the regular price of $8. You'll find Sew Positive both in my Pattern Shop as well as on Craftsy. Don't forget to share your finished quilt in my Flickr group, I love seeing all of the different interpretations of my patterns! Have a great Monday :)
