Introducing New Fall Patterns: Somewhere Under, Cantilevers & Studio Stitches!


It’s time to share the three new patterns for Fall 2013! I’ll be back next week to share more about each of these individually, so check back for many more images of the different samples made. As soon as they are in stock out there in the world, I’ll share some store links for you.

The first two patterns are quilts from Jessica Levitt, an Empty Bobbin Designer. You may recognize these if you attended QuiltCon this year! Each includes three different size options and Jessica’s detailed instructions and diagrams.

Somewhere Under can be pieced either wonky or straight and includes instructions for the optional flange binding and pieced backing, which uses scraps left from piecing the quilt top.

Cantilevers is such a great design if you’re looking for something that can be made in masculine colors/fabrics. And do you see the pieces of orange in the binding? I love that little detail Jessica worked in and she’s included very detailed instructions for placing them just so in your own binding for some added zing. The design on this pattern is scaled, so no matter if you make the quilt in the lap size or the queen size, it’ll have the exact same look!

And rounding out the slate of new patterns is an embroidery design from Lauren Hunt, another Empty Bobbin Designer. Studio Stitches marks the first in a line of embroidery patterns we will publish featuring Lauren’s art in her awesome trademark style. We’re calling the embroidery line “Stitchcraft” and you can expect some new designs in the coming year!

Studio Stitches is perfect for anyone who wants to show their love of all things sewing. Four different sewing machines, two spools of thread, scissors, a bobbin and needle and the “I am a maker” phrase. (More on the origins of that phrase next week!) All designs included for both an iron-on heat transfer and a traceable transfer.

There you have it! Three new designs that have us very excited over here (and stalking the UPS man!).

If you’d like a copy of one of these patterns, 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.

Care for a giveaway! Help me pass the time waiting for the final boxes of patterns to show up. Which has you most excited? Leave a quick comment (and be sure I have a way to reach you!) I’ll pick three winners a week from today to receive their favorite!

    Somewhere under and cantilevers. I have four grandsons and want to make them quilts for the future when they are teenagers or go to college. It is difficult to find quilts for males that are not cluttered and Are modern and striking

    I am over the moon for “somewhere under”… :)
    And I certainly can’t pass up cantilevers!
    Studio stitches has me in stitches thinking about how happy they’d be hanging on my new studio walls…
    I’d be happy with any of them and I’d be thrilled to have all three. ;)
    GREAT JOB!!!

    I don’t need to be entered in the giveaway, but I just wanted to say that these are all so great! And I am SO excited to see the Embroidery Pattern, it looks fabulous. Well done Lauren! I need to learn how, because I would love to make a cute little sewing machine.

    I’m late to see this, but I’m so excited to see a pattern for Cantilevers! Probably my favorite quilt last year.

    I love embroidery, so I would definitely have to pick Lauren’s pattern. It’s awesome!

    I”m working on the playhouse for my grandson. My mom is working on one,too. I think she called you last week. They are very cute! Hope to finish before Christmas. We’ve even put my dad to work measuring and ironing Pellon onto things. I had to laugh when he refused to use a certain scrap of fabric because “that kind just doesn’t work.. Trust me!” Usually it’s us telling him that!
    We joke that it’s the playhouse sweatshop! Lol!

    Sent a picture to my cousin and told her to look you up on the internet.

    I am interested in the Christmas bundle.

    Thank you!
