Hooray hooray it is pattern release day! I have been working on this Missing Link pattern for a couple of months now behind the scenes and am so excited to finally release it tonight. It took a bit of tweaking to get right and to make sure it is as beginner friendly as it can be and I think in the end, with the help of my awesome testers, I got there.
A bit about the pattern:
- It is really beginner friendly I promise! Working out your layout is the most time consuming bit. I have tried to make that as easy as possible with an alphabetised key, alternately you can do your own thing and it will still be epic.
- It is fat quarter friendly so if you have a collection in your stash that you don’t know what to do with – this is the perfect project. Alternately if you want to use yardage I wont judge you at all for that – you do you!
- It comes in 4 size options:
Cot/Crib – 40″ x 48″ (100 x 120cm)|
Throw – 64″ x 64″ (160 x 160cm)
Single/Twin – 64″ x 80″ (160 x 200cm)
Queen – 80″ x 80″ (200 x 200cm)
- It is a perfect weekend sew. The large blocks means you can knock out a quilt top in only a few hours from planning to cutting to piecing
- Colouring sheets and cutting charts are broken down by size with a handy swatch chart too so you can only print the pages you need.
- Basic instructions for quilting and binding are included.
If you were at Quilt Market in Houston recently you might have seen the pattern used with this gorgeous range by The Tiny Garden for Nerida Hansen. It showcased those gorgeous modern nursery style prints perfectly
And of course last week I showcased in Fossil Rim 2 by Riley Blake Designs – and again it was perfect for those classic dino prints. In fact this quilt was perfect for my front cover!
Once again my testers did a phenomenal job showcasing the design and adding their own spin on it – I am always so grateful that they give so much of their time and support.
Emily used gorgeous florals for hers and I love that the modern design still showcases them so well. She created a matching apple pie as well which made me ridiculously happy.
Kathleen used one of my most favourite boys ranges Hello Bear from Art Gallery fabrics for her quilt and quilted it in a modern simple style. I adore her version and hope she has a wonderful home planned for it.
Tracey made two quilts – one in Libs Elliott’s Greatest Hits vol 1 and the other in Balboa by Cotton and Flax. Using such different fabric ranges really highlighted the versatility of the pattern – thank you Tracey!
Joanne dove into her coveted Tula Pink stash and used Monkey Wrench to create this Queen Size beauty – I can always rely on her to bring amazingness to the table.
Carmel went all festive with this gorgeous Christmas version.
So there you have it, another Piccolo Pattern is out in the wide world. How I love this side to my business, more than I ever thought I would to be honest.
And for the next 48 hours there is a wee discount code in my Facebook group too – Piccolo Pattern Studio – so please feel free to join the fun there and grab a wee bargain at the same time. Remember too that if you ever want to test a pattern for me I routinely put the ones I am working on in this Facebook group and choose my testers from there.
