But first! Did you notice my new blog header!?My amazing cousin Brie, who is a graduate of Emily Carr School of Art, designed it for me along with a new logo and avatar. That's little me up there daydreaming of quilts! I am ecstatic with joy over this! :) If you would like me to put you in touch with her to inquire about designing a logo for you please send me an email. (Click the envelope in the mason jars on the sidebar or leave a comment.) Or, contact her on her website at the link on her name. :)
Okay, so here is my new pattern:
|Gingham Dog and Calico Cat Quilt designed, pieced and quilted by Anita LaHay of Daydreams of Quilts. Made with "April Showers" by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.|
I was searching for inspiration when I came across this quilt:
Then it struck me that a Gingham Dog and Calico Cat quilt was the perfect use for these "April Showers" fabrics that have gingham and calico prints among them. I do like the quilt above and I do enjoy embroidery but just now in my life I did not want to embroider 12 dog and cat faces. :) So I designed a quilt using dog and cat silhouettes.

UpCraft Club is launching my pattern today. They have it on sale for today and tomorrow for 20% off! You can find it here. On July 20th this pattern will be available in my online shops as well. I hope you will enjoy my new pattern!
This pattern makes a generous crib/toddler bed quilt at 43" x 54.5". There are suggestions for ways to size the quilt up if you prefer a larger quilt. The pattern includes three dog and two cat applique templates, a quilt layout diagram and a quilt coloring page along with instructions and fabric requirements for the toddler bed quilt. Use a bundle of fat eighths (there will be leftovers for another project) or a combination of fat eigths and 2.5" strips to make your quilt.
