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.
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.
