Sunburst Pattern Release

Sunburst was my first quilt to be in a magazine, and I learned so many good lessons just from submitting, making, and then having this quilt published. Because it was published in the 2016 QuiltCon magazine, which is only printed yearly, I needed to wait a full year from the date of magazine publication to have the rights revert back to me so that I could release the stand alone pattern. That day is finally here, and I am so excited to offer the Sunburst pattern for sale today!

I know that I have shared a lot about this quilt already, so thank you for your patience as I exuberantly get to talk about it one more time. It is still one of my very favorite quilts that I have designed, made, and shared with you… so far. After I made Sunburst, I shied away from doing transparency design for almost a full year, but I have stopped restraining myself and you will be seeing more transparency work again soon.

Speaking of transparency, in the pattern, I have included a page of information and tips about how I like to approach fabric selection for a transparency design like Sunburst. Also included is a blank quilt pattern for coloring or quilting motif doodling.

I have significantly expanded the pattern to be offered in 4 different sizes: baby, lap, twin, and queen (the lap size was the only size offered in the magazine).

The Sunburst quilt pattern is now available in my Etsy and Craftsy stores for $10.

  2. As I child I noticed the sun patterns on the bottom of the pool and tried to capture it, unsuccessfully, in my art. You’ve nailed it!

    Yay for you! It is SUCH a great quilt, loved seeing it in the magazine last year, on a bed, wasn’t it? and here in the white white sand. Glad that the amazon web services appear to be back up again this am; couldn’t link up with your Tips linky yesterday.

  14. Ooooh…I said I wasn’t going to buy any more patterns because I need to use the ones I already have. But I think I may need to make an exception. I’ve loved this pattern since you first revealed it.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
