I have a new quilt pattern to share with you today! Introducing Splash!

Quilt Details 
Pattern - Splash, JBQ 153
Designed by me
Quilted by Angela Walters
Started on 2/13/15
Finished on 3/6/15
Quilt measures - 49" x 68"

Splash is made using my Hex N More ruler (click the link to the ruler to see the video tutorial on how to use it).


Ready for some outtakes from our cover photo shoot? Sometimes we get lucky and only need to go to one location, but often we end up shooting in a few places!

Since this quilt was inspired by our wedding colors it was only fitting to bring it along on our honeymoon to photograph. (Don't worry I did check with Lawrence first and he was on board with the plan!)

When I found this tree I thought this was going to be the spot. 

We had to fight some wind...

The photos are good, but the lighting was harsh on the quilt top.

Did we get the shot yet?

The water was really pretty in person but it just didn't photograph as well as I hoped.

We wandered around the resort looking for options.

Again I had high hopes for the water, but the rocks just looked painful.

We went inside for a bit and I was able to take a few photos for Instagram. You can also see Stereo and Science fair in this photo.

We realized it was probably best to just head to the beach and that is where we had success!

If only my leg wasn't so awkward in this photo!

The lighting made the photos look a bit vintage.

You can see my pieced quilt back in this photo. The label is hiding behind me.

You can really see the entire quilt in this photo. Check out my tutorial on how to bind quilts with 120-degree angles to finish this quilt.

Fighting the wind!

We also took some time to snap some photos of all 3 quilts we brought to Hawaii.

Happiness = A successful photo shoot!

After we had the cover photo done we discovered this waterfall and had to take a few photos since the quilt is named Splash!

Lawrence was actually across the lagoon and pretty far from me. The water was really loud so we developed hand signals before he headed across the lagoon!

I just love these few photos!!

The pattern is printed in full color, and it includes templates. Plus there's no Y seams!
It has 5 sizes: baby, lap, twin, queen, king.

Splash will ship to shops in early June. Be sure to share your Splash quilts on social media using #SplashQuilt. I can't wait to see what you make!
