Here it is, my newest design - Slots!


Slots quilt by QuiltFabrication

After spending many weeks buried in both the Charm School book, and my bin of 5" squares, I broke away and came up with my own quilt design.

Isn't it awesome? And to think this is a simple rail fence quilt!

Created for two sizes, lap or twin, I made the lap size. This quilt finishes at 63" x 81 1/2", plenty big for two to snuggle under!

I love this modern design, with the solid background breaking up the piecing - it would make a great quilt for a guy, don't you think?

And this one certainly leans that way, with it's geometric quilting design.

Love love love! 

Though this one is made with prints with lots of color, it would also be great as a two color quilt. I've been considering making the twin size in a silver background and blue prints - could be striking!

Did I mention the pattern? It's Slots, designed by me, and available at Craftsy and Etsy. Listed as a Confident Beginner pattern, anyone with basic quilting skills can put this together. And I provide detailed instructions for cutting to make the best use of yardage - a definite bonus!

One last picture - doesn't it look awesome draped over the sofa???

  2. Susan, this would make a wonderful pattern for a guy. It can be hard to find patterns that read masculine. Plus it would look great with many colors/patterned fabrics. Congrats on your pattern release!
