Fabric Giveaway and a Free Pattern!

I have been so excited to show you guys this quilt I have been working on!

Love Squared Pattern-Click HERE to get pattern for FREE!

I have teamed up with one of my sponsor's Fort Worth Fabric Studio, and created this pattern exclusively for them.  Jodie (owner of Fort Worth Fabric Studio) and I had a great time coming up with this quilt for you!


I designed the pattern and Jodie came up with the fabric bundle.  Jodie is amazing at putting together fabric bundles.  I told her my vision of what I had in mind for this quilt and she pulled from several different lines of fabric and made this exquisite bundle for this quilt.

Love Squared Fabric Bundle --Go here to buy


She has a knack for pairing up fabrics and blending different lines from different designers.  When I got this bundle in the mail, I was not disappointed.  Jodie worked her magic and made this bundle of reds and pinks and all of it is low volume at the same time.  They blend so beautifully with each other and she did a perfect job of doing a combination of solids and prints to make this bundle stand out.  

Needless to say, I quickly got to work and finished this quilt just in time for you to make for Valentine's Day!



This pattern is simple, yet versatile and you can pretty much make this your own by using your own favorite color scheme.  I decided on a pink and red color scheme because I love those two colors together and I wanted to make a Valentine's Day quilt, but keep it simple and modern so I could use it all year round if I wanted to.  

This quilt measures approximately  51" x  63" in size and makes a good lap size quit.


The best part about this quilt is that it is composed of one pieced block. That is really as simple a it gets.  What makes this quilt pop is the composition of the blocks.  The pairing of solid blocks and framed blocks in the diagonal layout really makes a fun, yet modern quilt.  It is also comes together really quickly!



I did very simple quilting on this quilt.  I chose to do "organic" wavy and straight lines.  I did them around 3/8" apart.  I love the effect and texture it leaves on this quilt!

This quilt was sent to the "binding fairy" to get it's hand binding put on.  (the binding fairy is my talented mom) She did a lovely job on the binding like always! :)


I absolutely love the backing fabric Jodie picked out for this quilt.  It compliments the front nicely and has a nice circle pattern to it.

I really like this pattern. I've been starting to teach people to quilt, and this is a pattern I want to steer my students towards. One block wouldn't overwhelm them, but they could do so much with colors. I'm always drawn to yellow and gray combinations as my favorites.

That quilt and fabric choice is lovely! I don't really have a favourite colour, but I do gravitate towards the jewel tones - deep purples, greens, blues, and reds.
Thanks for letting me know about your giveaway!

Joanne said...

Hi Lindsey! What a great pattern and giveaway. You guys are awesome!! My favorite color combination (today) is grey and yellow. I've been drawn to that lately and just pulled fabric for a small quilt. Of course, had you asked me that question last month, the combination would have been teal and orange or maybe turquoise and red. Oh heck, it changes almost daily, and just depends on what fabric I'm fondling at the time. I'm fickle that way. :-)

claudia said...

I like black with vivid reds and purples. Dramatic to say the least! Thanks for the chance at that beautiful fabric!

Lindsey, this quilt pattern looks fantastic - I love the use of negative space and the chance to really play on some colours, it's simple yet effective - which is what I love in a quilt. And what an awesome concept to design the quilt and team up with a fabric shop - congratulations, you've obviously worked really hard on this. And I want a binding fairy too!
