I am so excited to announce the release of my newest pattern, Beanie Cap! The Beanie Cap quilt pattern is currently available for sale in my Craftsy, Etsy, and Payhip stores for $6 through Sunday, July 12th, which is a savings of 33% off of its regular price.
Inspired to make the most of the 1/2 yard bundles I purchased from Alyssa @Pile O’Fabric at QuiltCon, I developed the Beanie Cap pattern. The piecing is a lot less complicated than it looks, and there are 3 great color way options presented in the pattern:
- Colorway #1 is a Different Quadrants Blue / Green Bundle
- Colorway #2 is a Different Quadrants Green / Purple Kona Solids Bundle
- Colorway #3 is a Different Quadrants Rainbow Bundle
The bundles are available from Pile O’Fabric while supplies last!
The Beanie Cap quilt top finishes out at 66-inches square prior to quilting and washing. I especially like the movement the swirls in each diamond quadrant give the quilt, and I had a lot of fun quilting my test version!
To emphasize the motion of the pattern, I chose to use matchstick quilting and change the direction of the quilting. In the background, I alternated directions as well using long, flowing back and forth lines. For the center pinwheels I quilted a dense meandering loop to give great texture, and in the accent pieces I used an arcing ribbon candy to create fun secondary designs where the patterns meet in the center quadrant. I used 50wt Aurifil #2610 for the piecing and quilting, and I love how the grey blends in to just leave a great texture on the quilt.
The quilt pattern comes with a coloring page to help you select your fabric or even doodle you own ideas for quilting patterns!
To celebrate the pattern release, Alyssa @Pile O’Fabric is generously offering (1) Colorway #2 bundle as a giveaway, and I will supply the winner with a digital PDF of the quilt pattern!
