Delight Quilt!

I'm so excited to introduce my latest full-sized quilt pattern, Delight!

Quilt Details 
Fabric is Oh Happy Day! by Dear Stella
Pattern - Delight, JBQ 146
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 4/11/14
Finished on 5/2/14
Quilt measures - 72" x 92"

(Correction: Back cover of pattern, Ruler or Template: Without the Hex N More ruler, you will need a piece of 9" x 10" and a second piece of 5" x 5" template plastic to make templates from this pattern.)

If you have been saving or eyeing up some luscious large scale prints, you're going to love how those prints are featured on the large hexagons in this quilt! This is another fun quilt for all of my Hex N More ruler fans (click the link to the ruler to see the video tutorial on how to use it).


As usual, here are some of the outtakes from our pattern cover photo shoot.

So, I made a twin sized quilt when I made the cover sample, which can be pretty tricky to photograph.

I don't usually photograph my quilts in bedrooms, but we gave it a shot. And it just wasn't quite right...

And then I channeled my inner Vanessa Christenson to style the room a bit, but we had lost the sunlight we had earlier and it still wasn't quite right.

So we took the shoot outside, like we usually do...

Lawrence assisting!

And the lighting was great! Gotta love a quilt in the garden!

Here's a peek at the flannel Oh Happy Day backing on this (heavy) twin sized quilt.


And I couldn't stop at just one twin-sized sample, so I made a second one...

Angela's amazing quilting always adds these fabulous elements that give quilts a great shine!

I love using a stripe or a check on the bias as binding! Check out my tutorial on how to bind quilts with 120-degree angles to finish this quilt.

This pattern will be ready to ship to stores after June 1. It is printed in full color, and it includes templates. Plus there's no Y seams! Ask around at your favorite local quilt shops to find out if they will be ordering it.

Delight quilt can be made in 4 sizes: baby, lap, twin and queen.

Be sure to share your photos on social media using #DelightQuilt so we can share in the fun too!
