Salutations - A New Pattern

Well, here is one of those secret projects.  I have been writing a new pattern!!!  I call it Salutations and I am so very excited about it!!! Salutations is a Twin Size quilt measuring 72 x 84.


It has such a whimsical feeling to it, don't you think :)  The fabric is Riley Blake's Apple of My Eye and it was so much fun to work with!!  The prints are so adorable!!   Here it is out in the beautiful sunshine!!


I just love these windmills.  The pattern teaches you how to make them without using a paper template.  Bonus!!


I quilted it with an all over flower and loop design.  The lighting on this picture is horrible but you get the general idea :)

This pattern is a great for beginners and up.  It goes together fast (I got the fabric a week ago) and has so much movement to it.  It really is a lot of fun to make :)

So what do you think???  I hope you love it as much as I do.   And, if you do happen to love it, and want to make one for yourself, you are in luck!!!  Julie, at The Intrepid Thread, has made up a Salutations Quilt Kit featuring the same adorable Apple of My Eye prints I used!!  The kit also includes the PDF pattern for free.  What a deal!!!  So pop on over and grab a kit for yourself so you can get going on your own Salutations quilt.  I can't wait to see  them, although, I don't expect you to finish in a week, tee hee hee :)


And if you just want to purchase just the pattern you can find it at Julie's shop here or in my little Etsy shop here :)  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I just love how all your support is continuing to make Happy Quilting grow.  I can't wait to see where it leads me next :)
