Spectrum Quilt Launch Day

Today is launch day! My favorite day.

We are so excited to launch the Spectrum Quilt pattern by Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts. Make sure to check in tomorrow, when we will share a little bit more about Faith! I made not one, but two flying geese quilts based on this pattern, and I love how they both turned out!

Quilt Along

I’m really excited to announce that this is our quarterly quilt along quilt! I thought it would be fun to host a Use Your Stash Quilt Along–I’m planning to join in, too. Make sure to check out this post to learn more about the Quilt Along!

March Pattern Package

The March pattern package contains a few things: most importantly, Faith’s pattern! You will also receive a coloring page (in 2 sizes) to help plan your quilt, as well as a few different examples of how you can color the quilt to help you think outside the box, if you want.  We have also included a “want to make this quilt” page for the throw and baby size quilts–If you want to make the quilt just like (or similar to) the quilts above, we share the fabric name, the number of pieces to cut from each fabric, etc.

Using Color 

One of the things we are looking forward to most is seeing how each of you use color and make this quilt your own–fabric choices and placement can change the look of a quilt so much. Please tag us on Instagram @patterndrop and use our hashtags #patterndrop and #patterndropcolor so we can follow along!

Isn’t amazing that all of these quilt mockups come from the same pattern?  Note: There are not cutting instructions included for each of these quilt variations, but using the coloring page, you could figure out how many half square triangles, rectangles, squares, etc. you would need to cut.
