Racetrack Quilt {Pattern Release}

I am happy to announce that my Racetrack quilt pattern is available for purchase starting today!  Racetrack is a scrappy, fat quarter friendly quilt, and the pattern contains instructions for both fat quarters and quarter yard cuts of fabric. The pattern has options for 5 different quilt sizes: baby, lap, throw, twin, and queen. The steps have side-by-side illustrations, and I am excited to also share several alternate layout ideas with you!

While the inspiration behind the quilt was to represent a traditional quarter-mile track, I think the pattern has many other fun options. By fussy cutting a feature fabric, the track portion of the pattern can act as a picture frame. Or by using the same fabric for the track and center, a “filled in” or “raffle ticket” pattern can be created.

The pattern would make a really fun child’s play mat; I can just picture toy vehicles rolling around on the tracks! And if you have a friend or family member who is an ace at track and field, this pattern would be an excellent opportunity to personalize a quilt for them.

I would like to thank Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs for reviewing my pattern and providing valuable feedback and critique. If you make a Racetrack quilt, I hope you consider letting me know by using the hashtag #RacetrackQuilt and tagging me @QuiltingJetgirl when sharing on Instagram, or by sending me an email [jetgirl8(at)gmail(dot)com] with a photograph or link to a blog post about your quilt!

To introduce Racetrack, the pattern will be available in my Payhip Store for $6 through Sunday, March 8th, before it goes up to its regular price.


And today is another big milestone for me: this is my 300th blog post! To celebrate, I currently have a giveaway open. To enter, visit my Giveaway post for more details.

    Congrats on the new pattern! Very smart to have all those clever depictions of the pattern so people can see all the different potential uses!

  2. Congrats on your pattern release! It really is a wonderful quilt design and a great pattern! I am ready to review your next pattern 🙂

    Congrats on 300 posts your prolific poster you! This is such a wonderful pattern. It’s a contemporary shape and like you mentioned, great for bold or novelty prints and that’s a hard trait to find in quilt patterns sometimes.

  4. Congratulations! Getting a pattern out is a lot of work. Nice job!

  5. I really like the filled in look. This pattern would also make a neat memory quilt by using those photo transfers inside each race track. And appliquéing a different item inside each racetrack would be fun too. Now that I see the complete pattern, I see lots of different possibilities.

    Congratulations on another pattern release! I really love the alternate ideas included, particularly the one with the filled look. This is a perfect pattern for some Indelible fabric I’ve been hoarding. I’ll be off to Payhip momentarily! Also, congratulations on your 300th blog post!
