So this is a happy happy day, one I wasn’t overly sure would happen either to be honest. For 2 years I have been talking about and sharing the Fussy Gussy pattern and getting so much interest and positive feedback. For some reason though every time I worked on the pattern a significant computer glitch would happen and I would lose ALL my hard work. And boy did that blow!
When I sat down to write the pattern this time I pulled out all the stops – external hard drives, auto saving, cloud back up. The works. And finally my friend we got there! I sneakily released her on Sunday night without much fanfare and it is great to see so many of you eagle eyes have spotted it and added it to your personal pattern files.
Want to skip my rambling? The Fussy Gussy Quilt Pattern can be found in my shop right here.
Lets take a wee look back at the history of Fussy Gussy…..
I first shared the pattern on the blog when Playing with Oceania by Bec Williams, then again with Splendor by Jen Allyson and finally Moments by Minki Kim. If you follow me on social media you would have also seen that space themed version for a friend’s baby girl and that divine Cat tribute for my wonderful friend Shannyn.
And don’t those pictures highlight how versatile this pattern is. Although it is modern in design I cant foresee a range or style it wouldn’t suit and the reality is the sky is the limit when it comes to design options as my brilliant testers showed. Rest assured too that the pattern comes with a colouring sheet so you can plan the perfect quilt. There is also an organic option for those, like me, who just like to see where the process takes them.
In March I sent the pattern to testers and as always they didn’t disappoint. They all worked so hard and produced some lovely quilt tops for me to share with you all today.
Cleo created this beauty using the Gorjuss girls as a stunning highlight. I love the colour frames she chose, especially those blue ones that draw the eye so well!
Jaime is another superstar tester and she went for a fun modern, feel. Apparently this quilt is going to get bigger -I can’t wait to see her all finished.
Josephine went with stunning florals for her throw size version. Such a classic beauty and I love those pops of green.
Karen chose a lovely soft colour palette for her quilt and it looks perfect for a couch snuggle with your favourite book.
Kathleen nailed her cot size version. I love every single thing about this. Every. Single. Thing.
When Shannyn shared her twin size version I think everyone collectively gasped. Every single square in this darling is fussy cut and she opted to frame every single one with a coordinating colour. Seriously next level work from my lovely friend!
Shelley used Winifred Rose for her Fussy Gussy. How divine are those bunnies!
Sherry completed this beauty in record time. I love the tones and beautiful prints she selected for this cot size version.
