Our newest collection, Mirabelle, is due out in stores any day now. Yardage is shipping as we speak and precuts have been popping up all over the place for the last couple of weeks. Our pre-ordered kits will be ready to ship as soon as we receive the fabric and get to cutting and its just all Mirabelle all the time around here right now…
So every couple of days in the next weeks, I wanted to feature one of the Mirabelle patterns, to give you ideas of things you can do with the fabric and hopefully to inspire you.
First up is Carousel, possibly my personal favorite of the group.
Created with either a mini-bundle, fat quarters or even 1/8 yd. cuts, this is a great project to showcase your favorite Mirabelle prints. It is also a wondeful quilt to make with some Mirabelle and some other Fig Tree yummies from your stash. I have seen so many of you doing that lately, that I really want to work on a scrappy Fig Tree project but I just can't seem to get all of my deadlines taken care of. Ugghh!
With only 7 large blocks, laid out in a circle, this quilt comes together nicely and makes a great statement!
Constructed as simple "o" blocks with a few interlocking pieces, these blocks are sewn with the basic, "sew and flip" method that does not involve any triangles or bias. For those of you who know our patterns, it is clearly our favorite way of sewing. It makes it much easier to be accurate, to have your points match and it avoids having to make half-square triangles, which I know so many of you dislike because of the extra time it takes to make them.
…. hopefully you can some of the lovely quilting on that last one. I love those pumpkin seeds that Diana did in the centers of the blocks. Love them!
