Some fabrics are just too good to cut into small pieces! My new Linked quilt pattern lets the fabric be the focus. Use a pre-cut charm pack or cut your own from that favorite fabric you’ve been hoarding.
When I saw Carrie Bloomston’s Paint collection (Windham Fabrics) a few months ago, I knew it was a perfect match for Linked. The mottled semi-solids in the collection provide the perfect backdrop for the prints to shine. The Linked pattern includes six sizes from baby all the way to king. The featured quilt is the throw size and finishes at about 58” square. The “link” and background pieces are strip pieced to speed your sewing along.
I’m keeping my eyes open for a great kid friendly fabric to fussy cut for the next time I need a baby quilt.
Some of you may remember my Linked Pillow-Along a couple of years ago. The Linked pattern is an up-sized version of the pillow design. If you want to give the pillow a try, the links to the blog posts are listed under my Tutorials tab above.
Linked is available in both paper and PDF versions – paper in my Etsy shop and PDF in both Etsy and Craftsy. Shop owners interested in wholesale can just shoot me an e-mail.
The Fat Quarter Shop has generously agreed to provide a fatquarter bundle of Paint to one of my lucky readers! To enter the drawing, check out all the fantastic fat quarter bundles they stock and tell me what fabric you want to show off. I’ll let Mr. Random pick a winner at the end of the day on Tuesday, Oct 21. Please, please leave your email address in your comment. If I can’t reach you, you can’t win!
