Love Patchwork & Quilting Nautical But Nice Quilt

So…There was this one time that I actually got to have a quilt in a magazine!  I collaborated with Stephanie Kendron of Modern Sewciety on this gorgeous ombre nautical themed quilt for Love Patchwork & Quilting.  I’m one of those people who already WAY over uses exclamation points.  But just prepare yourself for this post, because my excitement was ridiculous!
Seriously, pick up your copy of LP&Q-issue 36 (you can find it at Barnes and Noble), and you’ll see my ugly mug in there 🙂  
So, normally, this would be a post discussing the design elements and collaboration process, but this was my first ever time to be in a magazine–so far 😉  so I’m allowed to be a little excited, right?

Dreamer’s Star Quilt Pattern Release

It’s been a little while since my last blog post, but I have been working on some really exciting things in my neck of the woods (and I haven’t even been snowed in by the monster snow storm!)

I am SO excited to be releasing my first independent quilt pattern!  I absolutely ADORE geometric quilt patterns that pack a lot of punch and created this pattern that is available on Craftsy and in my Etsy shop.  The pattern is an instant PDF download, so you can enjoy it immediately 🙂  

The pattern comes with instructions for 3 different sizes-a mini quilt, a 64″ x 64″, and a 80″ x 80″ quilt.  

One of my favorite things about this pattern is that if you aren’t great at combining lots of patterns or colors, all this pattern needs is really 2 contrasting or 2 coordinating fabrics to work well.  But if you’re a little more adventurous, go for a scrappy look and be blown away!  
Here are a few samples of the Dreamer’s Star Quilt Pattern:

Dreamer’s Star Quilt 64″ x 64″ made with Michael Miller Cotton Couture in Midnight and Lime

Dreamer’s Star Mini Quilt made in scrappy blacks and purples

I hope you’ll check out this pattern that really packs a punch and when you make it, please use the hashtag #dreamersstarquilt and tag me on Instagram @kustomkwilts 

I SO look forward to what you’ll make with this pattern :))

Happy Quilting!
