“Power of Seasons” Collaboration

Last year, I participated in three (3) collaborations with some amazing quilt artists. I may be addicted hahaha.

Introducing, the “Power of Seasons” pattern series; another creative collaboration I initiated.

These four (4) 16″ x 26″ season panels are the result of a creative collaboration between Catalina Barceló Maimó, Cristina De Miranda, Julia Wachs, and myself.

We invite you to explore the seasons with our foundation paper pieced (FPP) design series.

Mini Art Quilts Workbook

Back in January, I decided to make a fabric postcard every week throughout the year. I’ve been sending them out on Monday of each week to one of 52 lucky recipients across the US (and a few internationally). 

Making postcards is a fun & relaxing break for me from my bigger long-term projects and it puts a smile on people’s faces. Check out my 52 Weeks of Postcards blog post for photos of the postcards I’ve been sending!

So, as I am wont to do, I started a SECRET project 9 months ago and it is finally coming to life! 

Introducing “Mini Art Quilts; 54 Mini Blocks to Foundation Paper Piece”…

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.

The Iterate Quilt Pattern is Here

My second quilt pattern is now available! Iterate is a modern strip pieced quilt that is simpler than it looks. It’s available in two sizes, a 40″ square crib size and a 69″ square large throw.

Instructions are are included to make multi-color, 2-color, and scrappy versions.

Crib Size Iterate Quilt Pattern

By popular demand, I decided to write a crib size version. It will be releasing on December 3rd with the throw size version.

It finishes at 40″ square and is fat quarter friendly, so grab six (6) fat quarters and some background fabric and I’ll see you on 12/03!
