Free Quilty Advent Calendar / Beauties Pageant 196

 

As a quilter, this is my favorite month. I’m not much of a seasonal decorator, but I love bringing my Christmas quilts out of hibernation in anticipation of December 25. 

If you celebrate Christmas, one quilty way to count down to the big day is Melanie Meyer’s digital Advent calendar.

Following along is easy: Just visit Melanie’s blog every day this Advent season to open a door on the calendar. You might find a coupon code, a giveaway, or a fun activity. I’ve contributed a PDF pattern to this event, so be on the lookout!

If you could use a reminder to check out each day’s surprise, sign up for Melanie’s newsletter here. And if you miss a day or join the party late, no worriesyou’ll have access to all the doors that are already opened, so catching up is easy. : )

Other contributors to this year’s Advent calendar include @capaquilts, @fromblankpages, @makemodernmagazine, @meadowmistdesigns, and @sewpreetiquilts.

 Enjoy!

Irish Twist Pattern Release / Beauties Pageant 194

 **Get your copy of Irish Twist here**

I’m happy to present a new addition to the From Bolt to Beauty pattern collection ... Meet Irish Twist!

Irish Twist is a new chapter in quilting’s Irish chain story. Here the chains fall to the background, and the in-between spaces take the spotlight. Add in thoughtful fabric placement, and you’ve got a quilt fit for modern tastes.

Irish Twist comes in four sizes:

  • Baby: 38" x 47"
  • Small throw: 50½" x 62½"
  • Large throw: 63" x 78"
  • Twin: 75½" x 93½"

This pattern is a whole-composition design. The different sizes are created by enlarging the individual pieces, not by adding more blocks. To help you plot your fabric placement, there is a coloring page in the pattern as well as an accompanying blog post that talks about value and an alternative way to mock up your quilt top. 

My original Irish Twist was sewn in all solids. The pattern, however, caters to print lovers and even accommodates directional prints so you know how to get great results from the start.

Irish Twist is available as a PDF download in my Etsy shop. You can also find it at Quilt Pattern Mart, where itand my other PDF patternsare specially priced at $9 through November 30.

For some Irish Twist inspiration, check out the testers’ projects at #IrishTwistQuilt on Instagram!

The cover quilt was sewn with Nova by Basic Grey for Moda Fabrics and quilted by Tammie Earnest.
