Beauty All Around

Beauty All Around Mini

Beauty All Around
Quilt # 162

Before I start on my market wrap-up posts (although Sherri of A Quilting Life has a nice array of photos of her Moda contemporaries), I wanted to show you some of the market sewing I did for Sherri.  She sent me some fabrics, I sent her an email with a design, then I got to work creating this little mini for her Moda booth.  She has the words “There is Beauty All Around” on the selvage of her one of her fabric lines, so I grabbed a bit of that for a title.  I got it wrong initially, thinking it belonged to this line, Desert Bloom, but it belonged to the previous collection.

She writes: “I love the name you gave your quilt, too; however, the selvage quote “There is beauty all around” comes from Valley…the selvage quote for Desert Bloom is “Nature’s beauty brings joy to the soul.”

Now you know them both!

Pattern 23 Beauty

It’s pattern #23 in my Craftsy Shop, and in my PayHip Shop (for EU readers).  It’s a fun little mini that makes up quickly.  Because it is a new little pattern and a wee little star at Quilt Market, it has a lower price for the first month, then I’ll put it back up to the regular price in my shops.

Beauty and Clutch

But that’s not all.  I also made Sherri a clutch out of her fabric, featuring a pinwheel to match the quilt.  I used Diane Stanley’s clutch pattern (she’s also known on IG as ylmommyx4), and it went together really quickly.Desert Bloom clutch inside Desert Bloom clutch back Beauty on Gate

  1. What a lovely little quilt. Love the pop of bright red or red-orange. Computer screens don’t do justice to colors sometimes. Wowe! Your 23rd pattern.

  2. The quilt you made for market is do beautiful. I’m impressed with your design skills. Thanks for linking to my clutch pattern. I’m sure Sherri liked it.

  3. I love your star quilt! I had to come from Sherri’s blog to find it, and will be off to your Craftsy store for the pattern. I’ve been quilting a long time and just had to tell you that this is a fabulous design, and I love the placement of the fabrics that you chose too: perfect! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
