Dreaming of Paris - A New Pattern!!


Introducing Dreaming of Paris, my newest pattern which is now available in my Pattern Shop :)    I have been in love with Little Black Dress by Basicgrey from the moment I saw it and new it would be perfect for this super chic quilt design.


I love how my eye sees individual blocks at one moment and then lattice strips at the next moment.  It just goes back and forth creating some amazing movement.


And I am super happy to say that this is my first pattern with size options!!!!  Dreaming of Paris has options for a Baby, Twin, Queen, and King size quilt!! 


This cover quilt is the Twin size and it now belongs to my niece who hugged and thanked me at least 30 times for it.  Which just made me oh so very happy!!


A little detail :)  I love the way the secondary pattern of diamonds is created!!


I quilted an all over echoed feather shape going every which direction with some random swirls thrown in for fun.  (And I am totally in love with this quilting!!)


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!!!  Leah, at Burgundy Buttons, has made up a Dreaming of Paris Quilt Kit featuring the same chic Little Black Dress prints I used!!!!  The kit will work for the Twin or Queen size!!  (or the baby but you will have a lot of scraps :)   The kit also includes the PDF pattern for free and the fabric itself is at a major discount.  What a deal!!!  So pop on over and grab a kit for yourself so you can get going on your Dreaming of Paris quilt.


Thank you so much for stopping by.  I can't say how much I appreciate the support of each of my readers You are what make Happy Quilting grow.  When I created this blog two years ago I never dreamed I would be writing patterns or getting published, or basically having people interested in what I create.  It is an amazing and humbling feeling.  Thank you!!!
