Cool new pattern - Owen's Olivia's Wonky Triangles

My friend Nancy of Owen's Olivia has a great eye for design. Her blog always inspires me (and mostly leaves me in awe). If you haven't seen her blog, I highly recommend checking it out. She mixes her love for sewing with her love for design and home decor, some of my very favorite things! 

About a week ago, Nancy sent me a text message with an image of this gorgeous quilt:

I just loved the colors she chose! They compliment the Tule print back marvelously. But what I loved best about this quilt was the striking, modern design. I wasn't surprised by the design. Nancy always comes up with the coolest, modern layouts. What I was surprised to find out is that she created a paper piecing pattern to sell!

Awesome, right?! The pattern is for sell at these fine, online retailers:
Craftsy and Etsy

And here are some features of the pattern I snagged from her blog:

wonky triangles paper piecing pattern
  • Great for all types of levels and comes in a 29 page PDF file.
  • Features three different sizes - small (1.75"), medium (3.5"), and large (6.5")
  • Directions on how to complete a panel as well as helpful tips, which will aid in successful completion of this project
  • 22 different templates included for versatility.
  • There are a lot of design possibilities because of the ability to customize each template, including the ability to create any size you want for your panel or block! 
  • Perfect for making zip pouches, bags, pillows, table runners, quilts, sashing, or anything else your heart desires
  • Perfectly priced at $1.99.

Such a diverse pattern! Such a great price! I just couldn't pass up sharing this with all of you, my bloggy friends. I am dreaming up projects as I write to use this pattern!

AMH Flannel Plus Quilt

This quilt finish has been a long time coming. I originally purchased this flannel fabric to make a quilt for myself but when my best friend saw it, she fell in love. I bought a bundle for her and a year and a half AFTER her wedding, I've finally finished her quilt.
