Quilted Scarf Trio

I took a much needed break from writing new quilt patterns the past month. In the past year, I’ve written 12 quilt patterns and self-published 9 of those 12. (Stay tuned…three of those are pending publication in physical or digital magazines, woo hoo!)

While crocheting my always-“freezing”-cold sister a scarf with pockets, I had the bright idea to expedite the process by making her a quilted scarf. Which brings me to today…the release day for my Quilted Scarf Trio pattern. I hope you enjoy making it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Garner Parade of Testers

Garner Quilt – Parade of Testers
Are you ready for a Garner Quilt Parade of Testers?!? In this post, I’ll be sharing my testers’ wonderful quilty creations (in no particular order).

I absolutely could not have made this happen without their help and I’m so very grateful to each and every one of them.

The Garner Quilt Pattern

Introducing the Garner Quilt Pattern… The details: 5, 6, 13, or 18 fat quarter friendly (excluding the background).Scraps from the FQs can be used for a scrappy binding.NO small HSTs! Size options include 36″ sq. Crib, 36″ x 48″ Lap, 60″ sq. Throw, and 72″ sq. Large Throw. Optional “choose your own adventure” layout. Fabric Requirements listed below.

The Shear Quilt Pattern

Introducing the SHEAR Quilt Pattern! Shear is a big block quilt made entirely of half square triangles (HSTs). The quilt blocks finish at 16″ square, so the quilt comes together quickly. Shear comes in SEVEN sizes: Crib (36″ Sq.), Lap (36″x54″), Throw (54″ Sq.), Large Throw (72″ Sq.), Twin (72″x90″), Queen (90″x108″), and King (108″ sq.).Skill level required: Confident Beginner Techniques: Making half square triangles using the 2 at a time and 8 at a time methods. Optional cutting labels are included in the pattern 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.

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.

Amplify Quilt Pattern Release

Last May (yes, I know, it seems like years ago already), on a whim, I submitted a quilt design to Make Modern Magazine. If you’re not familiar with the publication, it’s an e-magazine published every other month. I’ve subscribed to it for a couple years now, and I enjoy it because it’s primarily reader created content.

Anyhoo…I submitted the idea for my first ever quilt pattern and was asked to make the quilt and write the pattern for publication in the magazine in January 2021. WOO HOO!! So ladies and gentlemen, that’s the very short story of how Rachelle handmade was born. Now on to the pretty pictures.

Iterate – Parade of Tester Quilts

It’s time for a tester parade of the Iterate quilt pattern #iteratequiltpattern!! I love how they’re all unique in colors that I hadn’t yet dreamed of using.
