I am so thrilled to get to share the Quilting Jetgirl 2019 Patreon Pattern, Bubbly, with you today!
Toward the end of 2018 I asked my patrons to vote on two quilt patterns: I wanted to use one to submit for consideration for the 2020 Quilter’s Planner companion magazine and the other I would use as the 2019 Patreon Pattern. One of the quilt patterns featured a transparency design and the other was a design with curved piecing. The vote was perfectly divided, and a lot of my patrons mentioned that they were looking to expand their skill sets and give curved piecing a try. So instead of using either of the suggested patterns, I decided to create a pattern based on the Babsie mini quilt that would offer both transparency play and curved piecing.
My husband loved the design as well, and as I had wanted to make at least 3 bed quilts for us to use and enjoy in Wabi-Sabi Overland, I was thrilled to get to piece Bubbly in our selected Kona Cotton color palette: Ocean, Astral, Lake, and Sky (darkest to lightest). Bubbly fits in Wabi-Sabi Overland perfectly and with the bed now installed, it’s only a matter of time before we get to sleep under the new quilt!
In past years, I have kept my Patreon design pattern a secret for the full year but also sold the pattern as a “mystery quilt” pattern for the year. Because I will be using this quilt in Wabi-Sabi Overland, I knew that I would need to reveal the pattern this year. So the only way to receive the 2019 Patreon pattern is to become a Quilting Jetgirl patron and pledge at least $1 per month.
The Bubbly pattern is written for a baby and twin size quilt and the pattern contains detailed information to help you select your fabrics and confidently piece curves. I recommend using the quarter circle templates from Jen Carlton Bailly, but the pattern also contains paper templates for your use as well.
All of the support I receive through Patreon this year will go toward my mobile wifi expenses to stay connected while we travel.
I really love this quilt and design, and I look forward to seeing other versions of it pieced!
