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!).
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!
