Introducing Square Burst!

My latest pattern is now available! I have been so, so excited about this one. 

At the beginning of the year, I worked with a fabric designer to create a new quilt pattern for her new line of fabric (Curiosity by Sandra Clemons for Michael Miller Fabrics). This pattern had been sitting in my queue as next in line, so I was thrilled that she wanted to use it for her new fabric collection!

Unfortunately, I don't have many pictures of the original Square Burst quilt. I was working on a pretty tight timeline to get the finished quilt to her for lookbook photography, and I only snapped the cover photo before mailing it off. I wish I had had more time to take better photos because the fabric is adorable and this one picture really doesn't do it justice. [Update 8/23/2020: I took tons of pictures of this one and added them to the end of the post!]

Interestingly, this super scrappy version of the pattern wasn't the original idea I had designed. The fabric designer liked the scrappier mock up better, so that's the one I ultimately made. But I still couldn't get my first idea out of my head. 

After the quilt was made and the pattern was written, I did some extra math and included a bonus page of TWO additional design variations: cornerstones (my original vision for this pattern) and minimalist (because who can resist a 2 color option!) 

Square Burst quilt pattern design variations

Each of the three design options can be made in baby, throw, or bed size. Because this a block based pattern, you can easily make a larger or smaller quilt by chaining the number of total block you make. Instructions are included for figuring out how many FQs you need based on the number of blocks you want to make. This pattern is so versatile. I just love it so much.
