BasicGrey Quilt Patterns {& Giveaway}

Monday, April 16, 2012
I wanted to let you all in on a project I've been working on!!


BasicGrey recently announced that they are releasing quilt patterns to go with their beautiful fabric collections. The great team @ BG designed the quilts & I wrote the patterns. Yup... me! Long story short... I was a technical editor for a few pattern designers before starting Jaybird Quilts. I stopped doing it once I developed my own pattern company, but I couldn't say no when my friends at BasicGrey asked for my help.

The patterns have the famous Basic Grey aesthetic with the bonus of the writing quality you have come to know with Jaybird Quilts Patterns! Just like my Jaybird Quilts patterns they are printed in full color and they have size options!!

There are currently five patterns in the collection with a pillow pattern that you can download for free. Star Fall Pillow Pattern. There are also two patterns in the works for Blitzen, their holiday line due in shops in June. And more to come after that!!

If you are interested in purchasing these patterns you can find them in Local Quilt shops & online.
BasicGrey Online - Fat Quarter Shop

{If you are a shop interested in carrying the patterns you can get them through many distributors or Basic Grey directly. I will not be personally selling the patterns or handling any of the distribution.}

--

BasicGrey and I have collaborated before. They featured my Jawbreaker pillow in Hello Luscious in their booth at fall quilt market.

They also had a few of my Biscuit pincushions in their booth, and I featured one on the pattern cover.

I also have a new pattern in the works for quilt market using their next collection!


--

Hello Luscious is their fabric collection that is in stores now. They have designed 5 patterns to go with it!







Happy Churn Dash
4 size options - Baby, Lap, Twin, King

Sunday Basket Brunch
4 size options - Baby, Lap, Twin, Queen/King

Sweet Starlet
2 size options - Lap & King

Promenade
3 size options - Baby, Lap, Queen

Hello Zig Zag

The back of the patterns show all of the fabric requirements for the various sizes.


So today I'm going to offer up my set of the 5 brand new patterns to one of you!
yup... my set!
:-)

A large number of people have commented on giveaways recently without leaving their contact information. If you have your settings set to "no-reply" please leave your e-mail address in the comment or change your settings. Many have also said "pick me" and not answered the question. I like to keep giveaways as simple & fun as possible, but if you don't follow the rules you will not be eligible to win.

Maureen said...

I think the Happy Zig Zag is my favorite!

Greta said...

What is it about people having giveaways that makes them want to make you choose a favorite and then they offer up more eye candy then you could possibly even begin to know what to do with it. I love basic gray and have been a fan since I was a scrapbooker before I turned quilter. Did you know they make amazing paper products too. I'm so glad to see these patterns as they are simple and happy and yet just enough all at the same time. So I don't have a favorite but I guess if I was going to have to start somewhere it would be between Sweet Starlet and Promenade. Thanks for a chance to win.

Patti said...

I really love them all but if I have to pick a favorite it's Sweet Churn Dish.

Jill said...

I really love Promenade, great job Julie-they all look great!
