Presenting…(plus a giveaway!)

My pattern, Toss Up!

Basic CMYK

It is officially done and up for sale! Whew! That was a lot more work than I expected :)


I had quite the adventure crash-course learning how to use Illustrator and Photoshop, let me tell ya. But it was definitely worth it!


While I worked on writing the pattern, I had the quilt sitting, basted, for at least a week while I waited for inspiration to strike on how to quilt the dang thing. I felt like it needed something a little different, but I was fresh out of ideas. Finally, with the help of my awesome quilt consult(aka the hubs!), I came up with these random interlocking squares, set on point. I just used my 9 1/2” square and marked as I went along. I think it turned out pretty cool at least :)


Oh, and notice all these fantabulous pictures? They are courtesy of my incredibly awesome friend, Melanie, who offered to help me get some good shots. SHE is the one who pushed (and shoved) me to write this pattern(mostly because she wanted it, tee hee), and I am so glad she did!


Speaking of Miss Melanie, she is hosting a GIVEAWAY for me, starting today, to debut my pattern. So, head on over to The Crafty Cupboard if you want some free fabric(and a pattern!) to make your own Toss Up quilt :)

Oh, and in case you don’t want to make it yourself, I do have the quilt listed in the shop as well. At least for now. I still can’t decide if it wants to stay and live with me or not :)
