Today Sue from Sweet Jane's Quilting and Design is here to talk about a quilt she made with Sandy'snewest line Sassy. I recently found Sue's patterns while 'window shopping' at Fat Quarter Shop :) Her patterns are great! I already have a few on my todo list now!
Thank you Sharon for asking me to share my Sandy Gervais quilt on your Blog! I LOVE Sandy Gervais! I think I bought 3 fat quarter bundles of Frolic, my ALL TIME FAVORITE line of fabric!
I am a quilt pattern designer, and my company name is "Sweet Jane’s". I love looking at Flickr and all of the improvised quilts that people make. There are so many talented quilters out there that just follow their instincts and make beautiful quilts that are one of a kind and amazing! I wanted to try to write a pattern that let people make an "improvised" one of a kind quilt, but with the guidance of a pattern! I decided to write a pattern that uses random lengths of strips. As long as they end up measuring 2 ½" wide, you can use them. It is really a perfect scrap quilt, but I wrote the pattern for layer cakes and fat quarters as well.
I had a lot of fun making the quilts for the pattern. I toyed with the width of sashing to use between the blocks. I thought 2 ½" wide was too little, so I made this quilt with a 3" sashing and I think it is perfect. I also thought putting a border on it would be too busy. It has enough going on in the body of the quilt! My pattern is called "Sassy Frass", I incorporated the "Sassy" fabric name. My friend named it for me, I am terrible at thinking up the names!
Thanks for listening to me chat about my work! Happy quilting!
Thanks Sue for showing us that fun and Sassy quilt! If you are interested in purchasing any of her patterns you can find them in her etsy shop or at The Fat Quarter Shop.
