First of all, our website had some technical difficulties on Monday, but there was a new color theory post that went up in case you missed it. Analogous colors are my favorite go-to color scheme, so I really enjoyed chatting about it!
Second of all, thank you everyone for your kind words and great advice in regards to my design overload post. Sometimes I really need to be reminded to stop worrying so much!
I’m still ruminating on some of the advice, but I will continue to post all the designs, even if they’re a month old when they go up. If nothing else, after a month away from them, I’ve often forgotten them anyway, so it’s nice to revisit.
As for patterning, I love making paper-piecing patterns, so will likely continue to do those as the mood strikes me. For the others, I may choose my favorites from the month and then get some feedback from you all about which you’d like to see the patterns for to help narrow it down. If making patterns ends up not being something I enjoy, then I might consider partnering with someone who likes patterning? I’m not sure yet. I’ll see when I get there. This is me trying not to worry about it too much. 😉
In the meantime, I’ve made a new paper-piecing pattern, Paper Boat! The design is from a very early QDAD (Quilt Design A Day) and I have been sitting on the pattern for a while waiting to test it. Now it’s been tested and I’ve been able to tweak some things and it’s ready for general use!
The block finishes at 10″ wide x ~3.75″ tall. It’s $2.50 for the pattern, and you will immediately get the PDF for printing. You can purchase it through Craftsy. The link to the purchase page can also be found in the play crafts pattern section.
If you try it out, let me know, I’d love some feedback and to see your version of it!
