The Matrikin Quilt Pattern is Here

The Matrikin Quilt Pattern is Here! Matrikin is a fun, strip pieced quilt pattern that comes in six sizes (crib, lap, throw, twin, queen, and king). The crib, lap, and throw sizes are fat quarter friendly. 4-color & 8-color, directional & non-directional fabric versions are included. For those who may be weary of how complex it looks, optional cutting labels are included to help you stay organized as you work thru each step. A confident beginner quilter with a couple quilts under their belt should be able to tackle this project.

Let’s Talk about INSPIRATION!

Ahhhh…the sometimes elusive “spark of inspiration” us quilters seek on a daily basis. Some of you are designers, looking for that fun new geometric pattern to set your mind twirling and whirling with pattern designs. Some of you are quilters, looking for that perfect colorway or palette to use for your next beautiful quilt.

In this post, I’m going to share my inspiration for my upcoming pattern, Matrikin. Often the inspirational process is NOT a spark, but a linked series of events in your day to day life.

My husband works his family’s 170-ish year old homestead farm, which we live next door to. So, if you drive by our house, nine times out of ten, there will be a tractor or other farm implement in our driveway or maybe even a combine parked in our front yard (insert eye roll emoji here).
