I'm s0 excited to share with you my first pattern published with It's Sew Emma & Fat Quarter Shop!!
Pointed Possibilities is the name of my new pattern, it was inspired by a barn quilt I saw in Iowa several years ago, and was originally made for my Sister-In-Laws wedding. She loves red, so I thought it would be fun to do a variety of scrappy reds with a champaign colored background. So I worked with the team at It's Sew Emma and we recreated this new version with a beautiful new collection called Roselyn by Minick & Simpson. Over the years I have made and gifted many of my own original patterns, and I've had a couple published in magazines, but this is my first pattern to be published by It's Sew Emma & Fat Quarter Shop. It is a huge honor to team up with them for so many long arm quilting projects, and now to bring some of my pattern visions to you too! Oh and the pattern is FREE too, so I'm super excited to see what you'll will make, the color possibilities are endless!!
So here are some of the fun details...
This pattern is FREE, so all you need is some of the Triangles on a Roll papers to keep your HST perfect, if you have not tried them they really are wonderful, they make your blocks perfect and that means your entire quilt will be square and perfect too.
The pattern comes in 6 sizes, and the largest one (RED version above) is available in a Quilt Kit with a backing set! Click the Shop Now below for all your quilt shopping needs, and I'll share more about the smaller sizes below....
When we decided to make the pattern available in several sizes that meant we could have lots of fun with color options! The sample makers at Fat Quarter Shop helped me make them, and then I quilted all of them on the long arm with a variety of flower panto designs. So remember as you begin picking out the fabrics, this is a great pattern for two colors, or you can use the entire collections and make it more scrappy looking.
Here is the info on all the panto designs that I used:
1" inch panto is called Flower Spray
2" inch panto is called Flower Power
3" inch panto is called Maggies Rose
4" inch panto is called Zen Flowers
5" inch panto is called Lively
6" inch panto is called Fresco
Bonus Pillow using 2" triangles on a roll - panto is called Daisy and Dots
How fun is this!? On the left is the 6" kit using Roselyn, then 5” using Dwell in Possibility, then the 4” quilt I made myself using Confection Batiks by Kate Spain, and my very favorite grey background Zen Grey they look beautiful together (more pics below), the 3” is Rise Ruby Star, the 2” is Happy Days, and the tiny 1” is Elinor’s Endeavor. Last but certainly not least, I had to make a pillow too, y'all know I have a bit of a pillow obsession so it was a must, I used the blues and aquas from the same batik collection along with scrappy Moda background and made a pillow using the 2" triangles on a roll. This is a pretty fast pattern so it's great for beginners, or anyone looking to make something fabulous in a weekend!
Since I did the long arm quilting on all the quilts, I will share some behind the seams pics of the long arm in action, and share some other random pics as I pieced the 4" size along with my pillow, lots or fun stuff below...
Kimberly also made a YouTube video tutorial for this quilt, I was bummed that Covid kept me from the Fat Quarter Shop film room for this one, but we had to make sure to keep everyone safe. Maybe soon I will be able to get back into the film room, I miss all my FQS buddies!
Check out the photo below to see my original quilt, this is the one I made for my Sister-In-Law
I hope y'all enjoy my new pattern and I can't wait to see what everyone will make, the possibilities are endless, so please use the hashtag #pointedpossibilitiesquilt & #ginatell when you share on social media so Fat Quarter Shop and myself can see what you are working on!
