Harmony: a versatile fat quarter pattern

Today I'm popping in to share my progress on two new Harmony quilts I'm making. This fall my daughter told me she did not have enough quilts in her college dorm room. Tsk, tsk . . . what kind of quilting mom am I? So I quickly began working on a Harmony quilt for Haley using the oh-so-pretty "Flower Mill" collection by Corey Yoder for Moda. The top is done and ready to be whisked off to Quilts on Broadway for machine quilting!





Harmony is a fat quarter pattern based on a tri-color layout. Haley helped me select the 12 primary fat quarters for her quilt, as well as the sashing, corner stones and borders. It was so much fun to sift through the fat quarter bundle with her and hear her reaction to the different colors and prints. Now if I could just get her to sew with me, I'd be in heaven!




Here is a photo of my original Harmony quilt that I introduced to you in April, sewn up in one of my all-time favorite Fig Tree collections: Coney Island.  The original Harmony quilt has found a home with our beautiful niece who lives in Colorado.





I'm also working on a Harmony quilt for another niece who is getting married in June! This version of Harmony combines some lovely prints from Fig Tree & Company and Bonnie & Camille, both for Moda. I can already see this is going to be a very happy quilt, and I certainly hope it brings happiness to the bride and groom.





If you are interested in purchasing my Harmony pattern, please visit your local quilt shop or one of my blog sponsors. You can also purchase directly from me. Harmony is available as a paper pattern or as an immediate PDF download on my Etsy Shop or on my Craftsy Pattern Shop. Quilt shop owners: wholesale information is available here.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you get carried away quilting real soon!
