Dahlia Pattern Spotlight!


It's funny how I think I am going to spotlight one of my quilt designs once a week, and I get about 5 weeks in (several months ago) and forget it for a while.  So, since Spring is here and I love, no LOVE this pattern - I figured it's a good time to spotlight one of my favorite designs.  I give you Dahlia!  Named, of course, because of the flowers in the quilt.  


This is also my first pattern where I quilted my sample exactly like I wanted to.  Most of my own designs just have a simple allover quilting job, but I really wanted this quilt to pop because I happen to love it and will never, ever let anyone have it but me! (Sometimes I just can't share) The quilt is currently hanging in my Studio and I couldn't be happier just staring at it all day!  
So, before you get all worried that you have to do applique on this quilt - don't - because this quilt is all piecing.  Small piecing at times, but so worth the effort!  

And, since I figured out the whole PDF thing - you have the option to buy this pattern in paper or in PDF form!  Gotta love that!  

A few people have questioned me about the shipping charged on our PDF patterns.  So, here's the deal - if you are just buying PDF patterns, and want free shipping - just enter the code "pdf" during checkout - be sure to hit recalculate.  If you are purchasing fabric, please don't use the code because we won't ship your order out until you have paid for shipping.  :-)

Oh, and Tradewinds and Summersville precuts are here!

I think that is about it! I hope you are having a wonderful week!

I am curious if you look at a quilt and know exactly what quilting is going where? Do you ever have doubts that what you are doing might not work? You always amaze me that you make it look so easy.

Another great job! It's lovely. :)
