Today is finally the day! The Curio quilt pattern has landed in store after a very long wait. I teased her release in January via my Buttercup Blooms post and sent the pattern to my testers full of excitement for the pending release. And then, Covid. Like so many around the world I got hit hard and it has taken some time to restore both my energy and creative drive.
You have to admit though totally worth the wait!
Curio is a big block pattern – they really are my favourites. It allows for feature fussy cutting of large scale prints and has the ability to create second and third patterns within it for some added fun. Make it as scrappy or as uniform as you like, the options are endless.
My cover model was created using a mix of the fabric lines Kismet and Spirited by Sharon Holland, one of my favourite Art Gallery Fabrics designers. She always beautiful florals within her collections and there is a lot of interest and scale, which I love. Honestly though you could use any fabric in this quilt and get a gorgeous outcome as my stunning tester versions show.
A huge thank you to Shannyn, Kathleen, Leisa, Cleo, Jaime, Amanda, Brenda, Debbie & Karen who not ONLY turned in some gorgeous makes but also waited so patiently for me to return from the abyss and release. I love it when my tester versions come through – they always blow me away with their fabric choices and different takes.
Now a bit about the pattern itself. The Curio quilt pattern has 12 pages of detailed illustrations and instructions. It features a colouring sheet at the end along with instructions for finishing off your masterpiece. 5 different sizes are available to make and instructions for a single block also so you can make matching cushion covers if you choose.
I made the throw size for my cover model – it is always my preferred size quilt for my family.
PS well of course there was one more photo coming ….
