Pixel Pop: A Quilt Pattern in Two Sizes!

Today I’m sharing photos and info about Pixel Pop, one of the new patterns available now.

Pixel Pop, designed by Jessica Levitt, comes in two size options. It is a fantastic way to show off treasured scraps as the pops of color. You can  cut those from a charm pack, too! Jessica’s original version was part of the QuiltCon quilt show, so if you attended, perhaps you remember her quilt.

Paula, a tester, made the large size in shades of pink. She loved this design so much that she made another version in purples, too!

The version I made is from Carrie Bloomston’s Collage line of fabric for Windham. I love how the newsprint works with this design and Jessica’s careful placement of the pops of color.

I think Jessica’s design for the pieced backing option is fantastic!

Pixel Pop has shipped to stores and distributors, so if you’re on the hunt for it ask for it at your favorite shop. If you’d like a copy of one of this pattern, you can find a digital copy in my PDF pattern shop or a paper copy at many of the stores listed on the Patterns page under “Where to Buy.” If you’re looking for an online source, Pink Chalk Fabrics carries my whole line of patterns.

How about another giveaway? Leave a comment telling me what color scheme you’d use for this quilt. I’m curious! I’ll select one winner a week from today who will receive a free copy of the pattern.

    I love this pattern. I would like to maybe try it in blues. Or I have a charm pack that I have been hanging onto for quite a while, that could work too.

    I love love this pattern! I’ve had my eye on it. I think I love the collage version so much, that I would use it to make mine! I also like shades of pale gray and white with pops of turquoise,orange and lime grrn.

    I’d love to do this quilt in either muted or pastels.

    How to decide? I think I’m loving taupey greys as backgrounds and pops of all kinds of large Kaffe-style prints.

    It was so fun making both the pink and purple version of this quilt! You can fussy cut the Pops so that they show something special or just go with that scrappy look. Great quilt.

    Marcia Derse fabrics would make a wonderful versionof this quilt.

    I would start out with pale lavender……….pops of varied purples, turquoise, and orangey reds, maybe a touch of acidy green.

    This pattern is a creative way to show off color…I would use a couple of grays for the background and then a coral/red color scheme….I’ve seen a flower bed with coral and red flowers….stunning!

    I would use blues/aquas with a white background.
