Windham Fabrics - Free Quilt Pattern (Expansion)

You might remember my post last week [Free Quilt Pattern : PARTITION] when I mentioned that Windham Fabrics asked me to create some concepts using their Palette and Artisan Cotton collections.  EXPANSION which I am sharing here is the third and final quilt that I created as part of that assignment.  You might remember the SPIRAL BOUND quilt that I showed a week or so ago, it was also part of this group.

EXPANSION uses the same block structure as PARTITION; but is transformed into something completely different just by rearranging the grid and adding more blocks.  I used the [Artisan Cotton Collection]; which had 22 colors from which I could chose to play with, yet in the end this lime and blue colorway won.  I named this design EXPANSION because it reminded me of a top view of structural plans.

Introducing SHIFTED Quilt Pattern

SHIFTED has been patiently waiting its turn to be published, and the time has finally arrived.  I told myself that 2016 would be the year that I published 3 to 4 new patterns and I would say ending January with the first is a good start.

I first created SHIFTED as part of The MQG monthly pattern newsletter back in October of 2014. You can check out it's first appearance here [Introducing SHIFTED]. Since then the quilt has been shown at QuiltCon 2015, and at a handful of local quilt guilds where I have spoken; but the pattern has not been made available to the wider public until today.

An unseasonably warm day yesterday allowed me to spend some time with my camera, shooting lots of photos.

Windham Fabrics - Free Quilt Pattern (Partition)

Windham Fabrics asked me last year if I would create some quilt concepts for their Palette and Artisan Cotton collections.  I designed quite a few things and in so many color variations that I imagine it was hard for Windham to chose; but chose they did...three in all. You might remember the SPIRAL BOUND quilt that I showed a week or so ago, it was part of this group.

Today I'm sharing with you another of that group, this one is titled PARTITION and is worked up in Palette from Marcia Derse. I had a lot of fun playing around with colors, as you can imagine if you check out the color range [Palette Collection].

The nice thing about this quilt is that it is great for a beginner as the block goes together quickly and with minimal piecing. The fact that it is asymetrical and not centered is something I definitely insisted on, as I believe it adds to the appeal.
