New Pattern: Window Garden

Thank you for stopping by to check out my newest pattern, Window Garden. This is a layer cake friendly pattern, measuring at 64 1/2” x 76 1/2”. My quilt features the beautiful new collection by Lella Boutique (Moda Fabrics) called Olive's Flower Market.  This collection ships to stores in November!



When I received my layer cake of Olive's Flower Market from the nice folks at Moda, I was struck by how delicate and romantic the prints are, but the inclusion of the charcoal black and the grounding taupe also made the collection feel sophisticated and modern. This mainly four-color palette is just so lovely!



And so, Olive's Flower Market was my inspiration for this layer cake pattern.  My goal was to design a pattern that would maintain large portions of each 10" square to really show off the fabrics, but also include some smaller details that give the design movement and energy.  As I was working on the quilt this summer, my daughter looked at the blocks and said, "They are so pretty, Mom!  Each one is like a little window."  Thank you Haley, for helping me give a name to Window Garden!


I think this pattern would translate well to so many beautiful layer cake collections on the market. I'm also thinking it would make a beautiful Christmas quilt with just the right holiday fabric!



Since my daughter was instrumental in helping me name my new pattern, it has found a home in her bedroom, where she already has taupe colored walls, modern black curtains and white furniture.  I guess it was meant to be!






If you are interested in purchasing the Window Garden pattern, please visit your local quilt shop or one of my blog sponsors (see their logos in the left sidebar).  All of my sponsors carry my patterns.  Also, please take note that both Lou Lou's Fabric Shop and Quilts on Broadway will be kitting this pattern in Olive's Flower Market!  My Timeless Day will be kitting this pattern in another fabric collection!

You can also purchase directly from me, but I encourage you to shop locally or through one of my sponsors when possible! Quilt shop owners: my patterns are being carried by Checker Distributors and Moda FabricsWindow Garden is available as an immediate PDF download on my Craftsy Pattern Shop or on my Etsy Shop

Special thank you to my friend Barb Erickson at Quilts on Broadway for the lovely quilting! I hope you all get carried away quilting often!
