This is the last of my new patterns…then I’ll blog about something else I promise!  :)  This was a quick-finish-quilt that I made with some of my Denyse Schmidt stash.  Her lines Florence and Chicopee blend so well together!
It’s a bit out of my color-comfort zone…it’s kind of a crazy combo but it works when it’s all said and done.



This pattern is beginner friendly…sort of a mix between Juice Boxes and Skipping Squares.  It’s almost the same design as my Briar Rose quilt I made last summer:
This one is also in my pattern shop and is starting to pop up in quilt shops!
We surprised our kids and went to Disneyland last week…the weather was warm and the lines were short…it was perfect.  Exhausting…and perfect.
She was born for Disneyland. :)

    I love that new pattern. I pinned it last week, when I was checking out the other new ones. The fabrics are so cute together and it shows it pays to go a little out of your comfort zone. Love the results!!

    I love the colors. You are right, they do all work together. I've made several of your skipping squares quilts. This looks like a great pattern.

    I am always so drawn to your patterns…love this! I like that it has many size choices…My Juicebox pattern doesn't have larger quilt sizes if I remember correctly.

    Your tango quilt is gorgeous! I know you said it's a little out of your color comfort, but it's right up my alley. The tango pattern is so fun, it is being put on my birthday wish list! :)

    I love this crazy colour combo, it's so full of energy. Beautiful beach photos, too.

      Was wondering if there are any corrections to the Tango pattern before I start cutting it out. I am making the twin size and have 11 fabrics. The instructions said to cut 2 strips 8 1/2 x wof. Then sub-cut into 4 squares 8 1/2 x 8 1/2. I think I need to cut 8 squares to get a total of 88?
