Pattern release days are always exciting for me, but today I am doubly happy to share the Wonder digital quilt pattern release because I can also share a finished baby size version of the pattern made in Wonder Woman inspired colors!
The baby size version of Wonder finishes at 33” x 42”. I used Northcott Colorworks Premium Solids in Tomato (Fabric A), Canary (Fabric B), Lemon (Fabric C), and Royal (Fabric D).
I spent 4 fun afternoons piecing the baby quilt top together while traveling. I realized earlier this year that I don’t use red much in my quilts, and I think this quilt helps change that up a little bit. I love the way it glows against the Brooks Range backdrop and foreground of Fireweed flowers.
I have yet to resolve how I am going to baste something this size while we are traveling, but I couldn’t wait to share both the quilt and pattern, so I’ll be back in the future to share my quilting and finishing details. At least I have a quilting plan!
As a reminder, this is what the original, twin size, version of Wonder that I pieced for Issue 65 of Love, Patchwork & Quilting looks like. The twin size version was made using Paintbrush Studio Painter’s Palette solids in Azure (Fabric A), Aruba (Fabric B), Pale Aqua (Fabric C), and Gulf Stream (Fabric D).
The pattern includes a coloring sheet to help you find the color palette that inspires you!
To celebrate the pattern release, the Wonder digital quilt pattern is on sale for $8 today through Friday, August 23, 2019.

Congratulations on a new quilt release! And stupendous photos as always
Don’t you just love how switching up the colors can totally change the feel of a quilt design?! I don’t often use red either, but it looks fab here. Plus, you can’t beat that setting for fun quilts in the wild shots 😉
I like how vibrant the red version looks!
What a fun, bold design, and I love it against your backdrop, which is absolutely beautiful!
The first thing I thought of for basting the quilt would be an accordion fold kraft board. It’s the right size, and it folds up so you could (maybe) store it easily. Dritz is the brand I’m thinking. Anyway, what a fun quilt with those bright colors. That is one beautiful photo op too!
What a beautiful background for your beautiful quilt!
Congratulations on the pattern release, Yvonne. I love the Wonder Woman inspired version. Well, I love the original, too, lol, but the red looks so incredibly vibrant with those yellows and the blue.
Wow! Great colors and such great pictures. Have you seen the basting that folks do by rolling on boards? You need some stability so a table underneath, but check out Sharon Schamber’s technique. I rather like it and it works very well. Of course, maybe borrowing a table at a quilt shop might work!
Gorgeous. And what wonderful scenery to photograph quilts in!
I like Kathleen’s idea of borrowing a table at a quilt shop. That way you get to meet some quilters as you travel and I bet you would be able to find someone that would be happy to let you do that. Quilters are nothing but kind.
LOVE the red – it is funny you mention you don’t often use red because I was thinking the same thing! That quilt is full of great energy. So nice!
beautiful pattern, in all colorway! great job!
I think your scenery tops all the Quilt Photo Scenery I’ve ever looked at. Congrats on finishing up a quilt top–this one will carry lots of memories for you!
