Quilt Pattern

Playful Partial Seams {Pattern Release}

Today, I have a new mini quilt pattern available in my pattern shop: Playful Partial Seams! I created this mini quilt pattern as an introduction into some of the techniques needed for my larger quilt pattern, Sesen. I often find that a lower risk, small project like a mini quilt is the perfect way to try out new techniques without feeling stressed about the outcome.

Not all seams can be assembled with a continuous straight line; sometimes a piece has to be set in. These seams are often referred to as inset seams or partial seams. In the Playful Partial Seams mini quilt pattern, I walk you through piecing 90-degree inset seams and gentle curve partial seams. I call this design playful because it is meant to be low risk and allow you the opportunity to try a new technique before committing to a larger pattern (like Sesen) that contains these techniques.

I gave the pattern a final test last week when I made the Blue and Yellow version as I meditated on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

    Are the proceeds from the blue and yellow going to charity to aid Ukraine?

    1. There basically are not any proceeds from the sale of small patterns like this. The Ukraine colors were just a test that I did but not the main point of the pattern. I have made charitable donations to support Ukraine in excess of the pattern sales, but that is not what this pattern is about.

      Thank you for asking,

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