The two new patterns are in the house! I am packing right at this moment for Quilt Market in Houston as I have an early morning flight, but wanted to show you the new patterns and photos from my photoshoot.
All of the patterns are made with the new Hexagon Trim Tool from Creative Grids:
I have been playing with this tool for a couple of months and came up with 4 new projects with it. Two of them are published by me, as a part of my strip pattern series and the other two are published with Checker Distributors through their Cut Loose Press publications.
GE-160 Strip Lash
This is a very fast and easy quilt to make. It's done with 2-1/2" strips only and you can use either the Hexagon Trim Tool, a 60 degree triangle ruler or the Hex N More ruler from Jaybird Quilts. The pattern offers 6 different sizes and you can get it in either printed format or as a PDF pattern in my Etsy Store.
The larger quilt is twin size. I used two Jelly Rolls from Sweetwater's newest fabric line called Wishes.
The smaller inset picture on the pattern cover is the lap size quilt I made using Timeless Treasures Tonga Treat strips in the Mocha Kiss colorway. One pack of strips makes the lap size quilt.
I pieced both quilts with #Aurifil Mako 50/2 in color 5004 and quilted the lap size using #Aurifil 3660, which is a pink variegated thread. Turned out great!
GE-161 Strip To Shore
This is also made with 2-1/2" strips and one other fabric for center hexies, sashing and binding. You can use either the Hexagon Trim Tool, a 60 degree triangle ruler or the Hex N More ruler from Jaybird Quilts for this quilt as well. The pattern offers 4 different sizes and you can get it in either printed format or as a PDF pattern in my Etsy Store.
This is the lap size quilt and it uses One Jelly Roll or Tonga Treat pack. I used fabric from Timeless Treasures called Sketch, which will be sold in precut strip packs really soon! This is the Taffy colorway. The grey dot fabric is from my Nordic Visions line.
The crib size version is made with a jelly roll from the Mixed Bag fabric line from Moda by Studio M. I appologize for this picture being just of the quilt top, I was in a bit of a crunch as I decided to do another colorway. It has now since been quilted with minkee on the back and is packed to go to Houston on display.
The other two patterns will be available exclusively through quilt shops for the Cut loose Press. But I wanted you to see them as well. They use the Hexagon Trim Tool.
Tilt A Whirl Runner
For this runner I used fabrics from my Nordic Visions line by Red Rooster. I pieced and quilted it myself with #Aurifil Mako 50/2 col:2311
This is also a jelly roll friendly quilt and takes 38 strips or 1 pack:) I used Timeless Treasures Sketch fabrics (soon to be available in a precut strip assortment) in the Gum Drop colorway. For the background I used Red Roosters Tokyo Pew-1. I quilted this one myself as well using #Aurifil Mako 50/2 colors 5004 and 2692.
