Yummy - Quilt Pattern

Tuesday, April 24, 2012
The second of my new patterns is Yummy. She got her name by being... well YUMMY!



This is actually a quilt that started out as possibly a quilt for the book. As the design developed I realized she needed a small border, so she became a pattern!



I included 4 sizes! You know I love size options.

Here are the outtakes and detail photos!

Similar to the cover, but the blue sky was better than the having the other fences in the background.

Detail of the binding and Angela's amazing quilting.

I tried having it bunched up rather than flat, but it didn't seem to add anything to the photo.

 Here is a peek at the back. I used extra fabrics to make a large vertical label strip. You can learn how to make your own labels with my spoonflower label tutorial. I also have a tutorial on how to make a pieced quilt back.

A flat shot to see more of the quilt.

My parents being silly again. I have the most supportive parents in the world & I wouldn't trade them for anything.

I tried laying it in the rocks, but they were too similar in color... and just didn't add anything.

Quilts keep people warm on windy days. This photo also shows you more of the back of the quilt.

Staying warm while Brad figured out the next location he wanted to try.

We were fighting the same wind as the photos for Varsity.

Fixing the quilt... just in time for the wind to mess it up again.

Right as we were finishing up this old VW van was leaving the park.

The driver was nice enough to let us snap a few photos.

He probably was wondering what the heck we were doing. It also looks like the people in the back left of the photo are wondering too!


In the end I went back to one of the photos from day #1. 
Simple & Clean... it shows the quilt, has a nice blue sky, and shows off the quilting.

This pattern will start shipping on May 1st!

If I were single, and a good deal younger, I'd say that Brad and the quilt are Yummy. I love the photo of him wrapped up in the quilt.

Beautiful photos...thanks for sharing them.

The outtakes always are such a kick Julie! And I love that everyone jumps into help even if it's cheering section. On this cover shot I love the blue sky and spiky plant which contrast so nicely with all the curves in the quilting.

Really like the pattern and the colors!

Love the pattern and the colors. The van color-coordinates perfectly.

This quilt design is really gorgeous, Julie. It looks like perfect sushi ( that I don't eat but think is beautiful). The colors and quilting are perfect for it too. They both capture the textures so well. It has a nicely masculine quality that you don't see often as well.

I absolutely love it. A lot.
