Promenade

The other day I posted three of my newest patterns and I promised I'd come back to tell you more about them. 

First up... Promenade. 

You can get it on Craftsy or my shop

Thus far, this is my favourite pattern.  The funny thing is, it was a complete accident. I was playing around in EQ (Electric Quilt) making a bunch of blocks and decided to start auditioning them.  Literally 15 minutes later this quilt was born. 

As soon as I saw that the negative space was creating an octagon (of sorts), I was sold.  The best part, the blocks are super easy! 

This was my EQ mock up... 


Isn't it delightful? I used Les Amis by Patty Sloniger for Michael Miller and I think it's perfect.  Mostly because it has turtles in it. Thank you Miss Sloniger! Please bring more turtles :) 

This pattern includes instructions for FIVE different sizes!! 



My children are wonderful.  We went out looking for a place to take photos and wound up on a golf course, of all places.  They were sort of patient while their arms started to get sore with me trying to get a good photo..heehee! 


These photos were taken at a historical trading post in my wee little town.  




This one was taken at the same place and is the one I used on the cover of the pattern. 






I really {{heart}} this quilt.  I hope you do too!!

Much Love!!!
