New Patterns from Cotton Way

Our store is bursting at the seams with gorgeous new fabrics and patterns, and we’re still recuperating from Market, but we didn’t want to miss highlighting a new set of patterns from one of our most tried and true pattern designers, Bonnie O. of Cotton Way. Her patterns never fail to give us that “Ooooh!” reaction. Today she talks about her favorite of the bunch of six, which include patterns for appliqué aficionados as well as those pressed for time (much like us LOL)! She and Camille R. (Thimble Blossoms) have got a new fabric line called Simple Abundance for Moda coming out in the Fall, so watch for more on that!

Hello Everyone at the Jolly Jabber!

My daughter Camille and I had been waiting patiently for our new fabric, Simple Abundance, to arrive so we could start cutting and stitching. It finally came and I have been having so much fun! Four of my new patterns feature it, and my favorite is Life’s Journey. It uses a layer cake, has a soft edge appliqué and is a lot like life, up and down.

My new table topper, Abundantly Blessed, uses a charm pack that shows the whole line and is super easy and fast with the soft edge appliqué as well. If you have ever wanted to do a Cathedral Window quilt but didn’t want to do all that appliqué, this project is for you.

My Candy Taffy pattern uses Joanna’s, of Fig Tree Quilts, wonderful Patisserie line and looks yummy enough to eat. I couldn’t resist doing the scalloped border.

I also have a new table topper pattern called Swirly, Twirly Table Topper using the Glacé line’s dessert roll, and last but not least, my Big Blocks for Baby. If you have ever needed to throw a quilt together in a couple of hours, this is the one for you. Talk about instant gratification, one BIG block with BIG pieces! Sorry this is short and sweet, but I better get back to work.

Happy Stitching!
