Today, I am excited to share "Tilted", my first quilt pattern for sale.Etsy, via a link in the pattern tab at the top. I worked hard on this pattern and I think it has good versatility. Here is one (rather unique) version of the pattern, called "Lone Wolf".
It's composed of all parallelograms, half square triangles and rectangles. The face is made up of fabrics in varying shades of brown to create the facial features and shading in the fur. I went with a contrasting blue background with a brighter blue for accent and to continue the parallelogram pattern.
It's one of those designs that's difficult to see close up, as the quilt is pretty big - 87 1/2" x 99"! Once you step back to see all of it at once, the wolf face starts to appear.
As for the pattern, it includes 10 variations, with step by step instructions and diagrams to make this Lone Wolf version, the cover quilt, Weave, as well as a single block. By making four blocks, you can make a mini, baby quilt, or table runner. By changing the colour placement and values of the fabrics, there are many more variations possible. Along with the PDF pattern download comes another PDF with images of 20 more variations to give you more ideas.
To get the pattern, check out my new Etsy shop!
To celebrate, I'm giving away one copy of the PDF pattern. To enter, just leave a comment. For a second entry, follow me on Etsy and leave another comment letting me know. The giveaway closes July 31st.
Over the next two weeks I'll be sharing more about the Tilted pattern and its design process, including two of the variations. For now, the Lone Wolf quilt top sits on my machine and is in the process of being quilted. I can't wait to share more with you!
