Hey stitchers! With spring right around the corner I’m sure you’re ready to tackle some fresh new projects to prepare your home for the season’s change. If you’re on the hunt for just the right design to play with, you’re in luck! I just so happen to have some new long-awaited pattern releases that I’m super excited to finally be able to share with you. These patterns were previously unavailable to purchase because they’re from our subscription wool box, subscription quilt box, a quilt-along project, past summer block of the week, or a featured retreat project. Now that these events are in the past, the projects are no longer exclusive and I can finally offer them for general sale.
The first project I want to talk about is the quilt I call “Revel.” I gave it that name because as you can see, it’s the perfect representation of the definition of the word, which is literally to enjoy oneself in a lively and noisy way – especially with drinking and dancing. LOL! To look at “Revel“ you can’t deny that this quilt is full of energy, and appears quite lively with its bright colors and geometric shapes dancing all around.If you feel like you’ve seen “Revel“ before that’s most likely because it was the featured quilt in our 2022 quilt subscription box. Finished it has 13 blocks total and measures 69″ x 69″ without borders, or 76″ x 76″ with borders. Triangle paper is included with the pattern for “Revel,” plus you will get 20% OFF your backing if ordered at the same time as the kit. Click the button above to get a great deal for an even greater quilt!
Are you a fan of my Dragonfly Dreams quilt? This beauty has been coveted by quilters across the board for a long time, and now they can finally have it! If you’ve been following my quilt journey with Dragonfly Dreams you already know that the design for it was based on one of the antiques I have in my personal antique quilt collection.Dragonfly Dreams is especially appealing if you love to hand stitch. It features my favorite – wool appliqué – and minimal, simple piecing. Finished it will be 60″ x 60″. Heads up! If you purchase the kit for Dragonfly Dreams the pattern is FREE! In other words, the pattern is already included in the kit price. Also, please be aware that Dragonfly Dreams is still a pre-order and will not be available to ship until at least sometime in March. On the fence? Don’t sit there long! Due to limited fabric supply we only have a small quantity of kits for Dragonfly Dreams so if you really want one, don’t wait. Grab it now before they’re gone!
Remember my O’ Say Can You Sew Quilt-Along from last spring and summer? This popular scrap buster was meant to be a clever way to use up all the reds, whites, and blues I had leftover from previous projects. I also intended on it being a fun way to get an awesome patriotic quilt out of simply recycling my scraps. Judging by the stunning work I saw as a result, I’d say this quilt-along was a huge success! Though my initial idea was for O’ Say Can You Sew to be a patriotic quilt, if you go to my STITCH Facebook group you can see several versions done in a variety of color combinations – both controlled and scrappy (not yet a member of my STITCH with Lisa Bongean Facebook group? Come join us! If you are already a facebook member, all you have to do to become a member of the group is click HERE, and then answer ALL admin questions required).
At 83″ x 103″ (or 71″ x 91″ without borders) O’ Say Can You Sew is a pretty good sized quilt. As you can see there are… let’s just say, “quite a few” half-square triangle to make in order to complete this project, but don’t let yourself worry about that. If you use my custom designed half-square triangle paper you’ll get through them with an ease like you never knew possible. Trust me! The time is now to get started on this amazing red, white, and blue masterpiece to have it done in time for the fourth of July. You can get the full pattern and the triangle paper you need to complete O’ Say Can You Sew by clicking the link above!
Seems a bit funny to be thinking about Halloween while we’re watching the snow melt, but hey! You never can have too much of a head start on completing new holiday décor in time for the big day. My quilt “Pumpkin Carving Contest“ was originally from the 2022 summer blocks of the week. As you could probably guess, this pattern was super fun to sketch and design. I mean, just look at all that personality all comin’ at you, all off of one quilt!We have wool kits ready to go for “Pumpkin Carving Contest“ along with the individual pattern and thread kit. Grab whatever you need to get started by clicking the link above! I’ve seen some pretty ingenious versions of this simple yet fun and creative quilt, including one done in all tie-dye! The possibilities are really endless… How will you do yours? Finished size is 62″ x 69″.
Fans of my Garden Gatherings fabric line will love “Garden Stars.” While this quilt was designed solely with Garden Gatherings fabrics in mind, you can easily use whatever fabric you fancy. Whether you like a scrappy quilt or more controlled, this eye pleasing project will add a little something extra to wherever you display it. Finished, “Garden Stars” measures 78″ x 78″.
Like it? Great news! Right now for a limited time, if you buy the kit for “Garden Stars“ you’ll receive the pattern for FREE (kits contain Garden Gatherings)! In case you only want the pattern, that’s ok too. This quilt is also very fat quarter friendly for your convenience. Receive an extra 20% OFF your backing when you purchase it at the same time as your kit. Click the link above to add it to your cart.
