While I released this pattern on Wednesday, I'm just sharing more about it now. I usually like to have this post ready to go when the pattern is available, but like all things with the pattern release, nothing went according to plan!
Right after I sent this pattern off to the testers, I found out I was pregnant! Right after I found out I was pregnant, I lost the will to do anything other than sleep. As much as I wanted to meet my original release date of Valentine's Day, I'm okay with having waited. I would rather things be done well, then quickly.
The Eternally Yours Pattern is available is three sizes: baby, throw, and bed. It has fabric requirements and layouts for two design options in each size: a minimalist, and a scrappy design. Here are some mock ups of the throw size in each of the designs.
Design 1: Minimalist - one color/fabric is used for the X's and one fabric/color is used for the O's.
Design 2: Scrappy - this option uses fat quarters, and each FQ makes 2 X's and 2 O's for a fun variety.
This quilt design actually started as a commissioned quilt I was making for a customer. I took the concept I created for her, and tweaked it to match my personal aesthetic a little better, and that is how Eternally Yours was born.
The cover quilt uses a variety of Kona Solids from Robert Kaufman. I used Blush Pink, Deep Rose, Sangria, Pomegranate, Cerise, Ruby, Rich Red, Wine, Crimson, Berry, and Garnet. The background is my go to, Kona Snow.
I quilted this one with straight line quilting about 1.5 inches apart. Straight line quilting is my favorite. It never gets old, and it looks good on everything!
And now, here are my testers versions. They did an amazing job!
Linda (@txquiltgal) made a fun scrappy throw size! I adore the fabrics she used.
Jen (@oneblessedmamaquilts) also did a scrappy throw in colors that make me excited for spring.
Mandi (@mandipersell) made a striking minimalist baby quilt. I can't get enough of the teal feature sashing she used!
April (@aprilgracequilts) made a scrappy baby size in calming, muted colors.
Jessica (@maeberrysquare) also went for the minimalist option in baby size. The pink and purple combo is a beauty!
