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!

I love Sweet Starlet the best. It reminds me of the beautiful quilts that were on all the beds in my grandfather's house when I was a little girl. I wonder now who quilted them... my great grandmother would be my guess, but sadly I don't have anyone to ask the question of anymore... :(
