$5 in April: Bluegrass

Here’s a quilt with a little twang and spunk. Grab a fat eighth bundle and get your toes tapping on that sewing machine pedal. It’s the Bluegrass quilt with a fresh new look in Country Rose fabrics arriving August/September 2022.

Bluegrass is fat eighth friendly and could be made by a confident beginner skill level and above. It uses an easy corner triangle technique to make the flying geese and sawtooth star points. This is one of those quilts that looks good in any fabric collection.

      Hi Ann!

      Moda will only do a single printing, unfortunately, but perhaps I could look into getting this onto Spoonflower? There may also be another Christmas panel coming in the future (though not the same one)…

      I just found that panel on Etsy. The seller is Cute Little Fabric Shop, but if you just do a search on Etsy, you should easily find it. I LOVE that entire fabric line, and the panel is especially cute. Let me know if you don’t find it.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on the Bluegrass pattern! I plan to use your Love Note fabric, and I’ll make it larger for my bed. I may also use Christmas Morning ( rather over-bought 😬 that line). And as I know my friend will try to slip out the door with my pattern, I bought two. Very lovely pattern. Thank you!
