Zig Zag Pattern Release and a Sneaky Peek

When I was setting up my stand at the Harrogate quilt show, I knew I had to have my most striking quilt on display to catch the eye, and sure enough my Monochrome Sunset quilt did just that. Not only did I sell out of the kits, (now back in stock) but many people asked if I had it as just the pattern - which I now do!

I called this kit Monochrome Sunset because of the black and white fabrics, with a splash of yellow and orange used in the quilt. However, I do think this zig zag design would look beautiful in so many colourways, rainbows for instance - I do love a rainbow! This quilt only takes 18 patterned strips to make, plus a light solid/blender that makes up the rest, so you could use any of my 20pc strip sets here, or half a traditional jelly roll that's been sitting on the shelf for ages.

You can purchase the paper pattern here, (£6.95) with free UK postage, or if you prefer digital downloads, you can get a PDF from my Etsy shop here (£6.60).

For the rest of this week, I've been in sewing heaven, it seems likes ages since I've sat at my machine and enjoyed some quilting - and I've actually finished something too! Here is a sneaky peak at next month's Pre-Cut Party pattern, this time based on charm squares.
