Boats! Boats! Boats! – My Modern Quilt Guild Pattern for July

July 4, 2014

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited that I’m finally able to show you my new quilt pattern!  If you are a member of the Modern Quilt Guild you are going to see an email today with this quilt in it:

I call it, Boats! Boats! Boats!  Yes, it is a reference to How I Met Your Mother…  I had a hard time coming up with a name for this one but it does sort of look like a whole lot of boats.  Of course, after I had it all named, Kathy suggested Regatta.  That might have been better… 

Good name or bad name aside, I really like this quilt! I used a lot of my scraps and most of the prints were from my Stash Stack Club from Pink Castle Fabrics!  There are a lot of old favorites in there.  And some new ones too!  This block has a little bit of glitter too, some Cotton + Steel XOXO with metallic ink…oooohhh.

And this one has an old Cosmo Cricket print from Tailor Made.  See the little girl in there?

The quilting was expertly done by Kathy Koch from Thread Bear Quilting.  She added some really cool water lines to go with my boat theme 🙂

I used one of my favorite Momo dots in pink for the backing.

I hope that if you are a part of the Modern Quilt Guild you enjoy this pattern!  And for those of you who don’t know, every month members of the MQG get an exclusive modern pattern!  I’m happy to be included with all the other great designers!  

Also!  Speaking of Stash Stack Club, we are giving away a FULL year of fat quarters!  All of this:
