Pattern Jam

I am addicted to Pattern Jam!

I wanted to share with anyone that interested in designing their own quilt because I would have loved this when I first started quilting. It's amazing what you can do with just half square triangles by playing with the layout and fabric!

My scrappy bear paw is one of my next projects.
I uploaded the digital images of the fabric I plan to use and it generates a PDF file that you can download with how much fabric you need of each print. :)

Here's a few of my other designs.

First idea for Wonderland:

This one is for the upcoming line Radiant Girl.
I am still working on the flying geese directions (you can go and edit a design at any time).

Seriously fun! I've probably designed a quilt every other night in just an hour or so time before bed.

Go sign up and check it out! If you design and save a quilt you can get a free month of the premium membership. I am not sure if there is a time limit for that promo so I'd do it soon.

I think this will help me get through my fabric stash! As much as I love sewing patterns I think it's more fun creating my own from scratch and watching it come to life. :)

Katarina Roccella's Wonderland fabric is beautiful!
I was saying on Instagram that it was going to be hard to top this line.
Let's go on a visual journey through Wonderland and check out the colors and METALLIC!

I honestly can't pick a favorite print although I loved those feathers from her Spoonflower days so that will always be a classic. :)

I am designing the quilt for my stop on the Wonderland blog tour this weekend. I didn't request enough of some of the prints on my old design so had to go back to the drawing board.
Pattern Jam is so fun though I didn't mind designing another one.

If you haven't tried out Pattern Jam yet GO NOW!
It's free (or paid for more features) and fun.

I'll have the tutorial/pattern I used for my Wonderland quilt available here on October 11th!
