Boy, has this week been exciting! As you know, I’ve been participating in the New Quilt Blogger’s Blog Hop all week, and through it I've met a lot of terrific quilt bloggers. If you'd like to meet them too, you’ll find links to our hosts and the other participants in the blog hop at the end of this post.
This week has been exciting for other reasons as well, most notably the release of my first block pattern, Bee Hive! Isn't it adorable?
Even more exciting for all of you, my Bee Hive block pattern is free through this weekend! Woot!
But right now I’m just about bursting at the seams with excitement because I’ve just added a new pattern to my online store and it’s called Brickyard.
I blogged about Brickyard a few weeks ago when I got it finished and snapped a few photos of it. Since then I’ve been writing up a pattern for Brickyard and now it's done! Double woot!
As you can see, Brickyard is a modern design with tons of negative space that’s just begging for some awesome quilting.
Alternatively, you can feature a focal fabric in the negative space. I’m working on just such a version now, and I’ll be posting an update on it soon.
The pattern comes in five sizes, and man is it quick to make! You can use jelly roll strips, fat quarters, fat eighths or yardage to sew up the brickyard. Heck, you can even use your scraps. This quilt is definitely a scrap buster!
To celebrate the release of my new pattern, I’m having a sale in my shop this weekend only, until Sunday, midnight EST. First, Brickyard is $1 off. In addition, if you purchase two or more patterns, you’ll get 10% of your total purchase! Just use the coupon code Brickyard at checkout to get the two or more discount.
Well that's it for me for this week! It's not too late to spread the love and visit the other bloggers participating in the New Quilt Bloggers blog hop this week including several of my hive mates:
Be sure to visit our blog hosts Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs, Yvonne of QuiltingJetgirl, and Stephanie of Late Night Quilter as well for a chance to win some great prizes and to meet the bloggers from the other hives who are also participating this week. The hop continues for two more weeks so be sure to check back next week for more info.
