Three Cheers!

Here’s a sneak peek at my 25th quilt pattern*, “Three Cheers (for the red, white and blue).” I just finished the pattern today. I started this quilt in early 2008, when Minick and Simpson's red, white and blue “Prairie Paisley” line came out. I had it all pieced and partly quilted in the spring. And then, something happened… I got really busy, and distracted by other things … and the kids got out for summer vacation. (Darn them!) This quilt got pushed aside, and I just got back to it this fall, when the kids went back to school.

Plus, it is really big. King sized, 105" square. The biggest quilt I've ever quilted (I have a regular home sewing machine, not a long arm.)

I'll be printing the patterns in the next few days, and will have them up on my website soon. There are two other patterns in the works that also must be ready to send off to Moda/United Notions (one of my distributors) next week for Fall Market.

Three cheers, indeed!

* If you don't count all my block-of-the-month patterns separately.
