Introducing My Latest Pattern: Glazed Donuts!!

Thursday, October 6, 2016
I've got a new pattern to share with you today!! Introducing Glazed Donuts!
Quilt Details 
Fabric is Jasmine by Valori Wells for Robert Kaufman
Pattern - Glazed Donuts, JBQ 168
Designed by me
Quilted by Teresa Silva
Started on 9/1/16
Finished on 9/21/16
Quilt measures - 54" x 82"

Glazed Donuts 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 outtake photos and detail shots? Our photoshoots typically begin with lots of walking + lots of trial and error.

I walked down this outdoor hallway to see if there was a good place to shoot. My husband decided to shoot photos of me walking back down the hallway. 

Here he was getting all artsy. Ever since I showed him how to focus on one thing & then move the camera he is kinda obsessed.

 I thought this might be a good location, but the lighting was off...

...and the wind wasn't cooperating!

It is no secret that I love fences & railings. I almost used a photo from this location on the cover. Instead this photo ended up on the inside of the pattern. I love the reflection of the quilt in the water.

Eventually we found this sculpture in the garden and it was the perfect place for the quilt to hang out & be photographed for a few moments.

Here is the back of the quilt. I pieced the back using my label and some leftovers from the front to make a pair of rainbows on either side of the label. I like how it pops & provides and unexpected surprise.

I really love the texture that Teresa's quilting brought to the finished quilt.

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.

Glazed Donuts will be available in local and online quilt shops November 1. Be sure to share your Glazed Donuts quilts on social media using #GlazedDonutsQuilt. I can't wait to see what you make!

Come see me at Quilt Market in Houston, TX. I'll be in booth #2442 and I'll have my latest patterns at Sample Spree table #92. See you there!

This one looks hard. Love it

Nancy - Not at all! No Y seams and very similar construction to many of my patterns. The background fabric just hides the construction.

I love this one! Really I love all your pattern! I received the templates so I could make some of your patterns but I haven't yet. But this pattern is the one I want to start with! I love the bright colors you used too! So lovely :)

Glazed Donuts! The name bridges Philadelphia with Southern California. Dunkin Donuts in the East, and all those independent donut shops in SoCal. Mmmmm, all are delicious, especially the pattern!
