Today is an exciting day: I am releasing two quilt patterns! Also, this serves as a quick heads up: there will be another pattern release later this week and a fourth pattern release on February 19th. It’s going to be a busy pattern month.
Fletched is a “secret pattern” that I have had created for over a year that I finally get to publicly share with you today.
I created the Fletched quilt pattern as my 2017 Patreon pattern, and as such it was only available to those who signed up to support me via Patreon for $1 per month.
Fletched is a quilt block based design, and the way the block interacts with itself makes for very fun secondary design options depending on the layout you choose. I offer many different layout options for baby, lap, and queen size quilts but the possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
I made the lap size version of the quilt and chose to use fabrics inspired by Valentine’s Day. Fletching is defined as the feathers on an arrow, and I felt like the combination of the name of the design and upcoming holiday were the perfect inspiration for selecting my block placement as well: each quadrant forms a heart.
I used 50wt Aurifil in 2535 (Magenta) to quilt a loose all over loop pattern. The main solid for the quilt is Kona Cerise, and the two blenders were fabrics I purchased from my local quilt shop. The binding is an Alison Glass Sunprint, and the backing is a print by Sarah Maxwell.
The public release of the Fletched quilt pattern also marks the release of my 2018 Patreon secret pattern. To celebrate the public release of these quilt patterns, Fletched and the 2018 Patreon secret pattern (which is great for fat quarter bundles!) will be on sale in my shop for $8 through Friday, February 9th.
