Today, I’m pleased to announce the release of my third quilting pattern, Punctual.
As you may have guessed from my last Moda Bake Shop tutorial, I am fascinated by type design. Punctual features a quilt with a giant patchwork ampersand–one of the typographical characters with the most, well, character. The patchwork is charm-friendly and a great way to showcase the prints of a single fabric collection. I particularly love how the squared edges and straight lines of the patchwork contrast with the curvilinear outlines of the ampersand.
The pattern also includes directions and full-size templates for four throw pillows sporting other interesting punctuation marks: the asterisk, question mark, exclamation mark, and–another personal favorite of mine–semi-colon. Directions are given for creating pillows with solid or patchwork backgrounds.
To celebrate, how about another giveaway? Three PDF copies of Punctual are up for grabs. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. If you’d like a bonus entry, follow me either on Craftsy or Twitter and let me know in your comment. Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!
Edited to add: The Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day excitement is winding down (culminating?) this evening at 5 PM PST. However, my family is going on vacation for a week starting tomorrow, so I’m going to leave this giveaway open until we return on next Sunday. Entries will close at midnight and I’ll draw the winners on Monday, May 20, so there’s still plenty of time to enter!
