Here she is! Pattern 10 in the PBJ family: Softly Circled!
Let's just enjoy her beauty for a moment, and the fact that my 15 year old daughter requested to keep this one. Did you hear that? Angels started singing. It's bright, it's beautiful and it's hers.
Look at this gorgeous sample. I made this one using the Renaissance fat quarter pack from Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics. If you have never heard of them, you are missing out. This fabric looks like suede but is 100% cotton and just butter to work with. Guess who is sponsoring the giveaway??!!
YES! Cherrywood Fabrics has generously given an 8-steps bundle of fat quarters of their gorgeous Renaissance fabric. Oh. My. Beautiful.
The colors are just rich.
Lets take a look at a couple of testers quilts and then we'll get back to the giveaway.
Here is Sandy's version. I love that she used two colors, but used different values of blue.
Sharon chose to do just two colors as well, this time keeping the circles all one color. Isn't it funny how the same pattern takes on a life of it's own with each quilter?
This pattern requires the Corner Beam® ruler from Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design. Templates are included if you prefer, but the ruler is so easy to use and speeds up the process. No affiliation here, I'm just a fan of good rulers, not so much of templates.
For the lap size quilt I used 2 packs of the 8-line Renaissance. I had 3 extra fat quarters and decided to make 3 more circles for the back. I think I love it as much as the front!
Lets talk giveaway!! The giveaway runs through Monday, with a winner being announced Tuesday. You will be contacted through email, and I will send out your 8-line Renaissance fabric. Good luck!
Through April 28th only the introductory price is $5.00!
