Happy Geese {a new quilt pattern and a chance to take a class with me!!}


If you follow me in Instagram (@materialgirlquilts), you have probably already seen this quilt top.  But today I'm here to formally introduce you to Happy Geese! Happy Geese in the wind

I designed this quilt last year and have been hoarding saving some Happy Go Lucky penny dots especially for it.  I think these dots are the absolute best dots ever in fabric!  And of course I also had to use the white on white dots for the background.  I love how they look like a solid from a distance, but up close you see the adorable dot detail.

So, with the fabric coming from Bonnie & Camille's Happy Go Lucky line and just the fact that these colors make me "happy", I decided to name this quilt Happy Geese.  It finishes at 60" x 72" which is perfect for snuggling under on the couch.

I haven't had time to quilt it yet, so if you have any fantastic ideas for me, please share!

The most exciting thing about this new quilt is that I have FINALLY put together my first "official" quilt pattern!  You can purchase this pattern in a PDF downloadable format from my shop or on Craftsy.  And better yet, if you are local, I will be teaching a class on Happy Geese at Crimson Tate in downtown Indianapolis in June.  You can check out their class schedule here for all of the details and to sign up.  I hope to see some of you there and get to know my local sewing peeps a bit better.

I'm excited about this pattern and if all goes well, I hope to be able to offer many more in the future.  Thanks so much for following along and supporting me in my journey :)
