I created the Bubbly quilt pattern as my 2019 Patreon pattern, and as such it was only available to those who signed up to support me via Patreon for $1 or more per month. Today, I’m excited to get to expand the pattern release to everyone!
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 merge the ideas and create a pattern based on the Babsie mini quilt that would offer both transparency play and curved piecing.
In addition, my twin size test version of Bubbly traveled along with my husband and I last summer in Wabi-Sabi Overland. 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.
To celebrate the full release of the Bubbly digital quilt pattern, the pattern will be on sale through Friday, February 21st.
