More sizes!

A New View was one of the first quilts I designed myself and one of my first patterns.  I had so much fun collecting all the beautiful browns and turquoises for the original quilt.  It is a full/queen size (80" x 84") and the pattern originally only included instructions for that size.

Now, I have gone back and added information for a baby size (36" x 48") and a throw size (60" x 63").

When I bought a fat quarter bundle of Daisy Janie Shades of Grey last summer, I didn't know what I wanted to do with them - I just knew I had loved the line since I first saw it and I needed to have it!  You know what I mean.

As I worked on the idea for a baby sized version of A New View, I realized these fabrics were perfect!  I added some seafoamy/aqua colors and a soft baby quilt was born.  A couple of my (non-quilting) family members thought that it was kind of strange to make a grey baby quilt, but it is such a pretty, soft grey, I love it!

The new, multi-sized version of A New View is available now in my Etsy shop in both paper and PDF versions and at PatternSpot.com in PDF format.

  3. Brown is not one of my favourite colour, but I love it in combination with the bright turqoise! It's so eye catching- and I bet fun to make.

  4. My goodness, it looks totally different in the grey prints, very interesting. The attention goes to the printed textures and the blue is like a transparent overlay. Yummy!
