New Leaf - A New Pattern

Happy December! I am pleased and excited to start the month with a new pattern release! I call this one "New Leaf".

The quilt is pre-cut friendly - Jelly Rolls, Sushi Rolls etc. can be used for the main 40.5" x 48.5" lap quilt, and the 12.5" square mini quilt uses two fat quarters. Yes, there's a mini quilt included in the pattern, no extra charge. :) Here's the version I made using a couple of Bonnie & Camille prints:

I used half a Moda Jelly Roll for the colours and yardage for the grey in my lap quilt. I absolutely adore these fabrics by Basic Grey from their Fresh Cut collection. The other half of the Jelly Roll is destined to (one day) become a coordinating quilt of the same design.

As usual, I've tried my best to make this pattern amazing value. There are loads of tips, step by step instructions and illustrations, as well as a couple of variations including an ombre version:

I've also included colouring pages at the end of the pattern so you can play with colour before deciding on your fabrics.

I really and truly love this quilt and the pattern I've produced. It's not hard to put together, is suitable for beginners, plus I'm always happy to offer assistance if needed. I hope you'll give it a go!

You can buy the pattern here or if you're in the EU, through my Etsy Store.

Happy Sewing!

  1. Looks great Hope! Great idea to include the cocloring pages. Your finish pictures and the blue color scheme almost look like two different patterns. So much potential created by just changing the color placement.

  2. Thank you Colleen :) It is a remarkably versatile pattern. There are just so many different looks you can achieve. It's so tempting to try them all. I've actually made a mini-mini that is the same look as the blue image, but in greens and brown. ;)

  3. Another lovely pattern Hope. Love the inclusion of a mini quilt in the pattern. Hugs.....
