New Pattern: Doodlebug Garden

I’m so excited to share my latest lap quilt pattern with you!


This quilt sews together quickly with the Inklingo 2″ hexagon collection, or the From Marti Michell small hexagon set.  You could also use the fabric charts and full-color diagrams to English paper piece the quilt, but my instructions are for template or Inklingo piecing.

Here’s a close-up of the “lallybuds” as my daughter calls them.


And because I know color makes a huge difference in design impressions, here’s the quilt again, all in 1930’s pastels.  This was a new experience for me.  I’ve never been much into these fabrics, but their iconic combination of pastel with black and red made them perfect for this design.


You can find Doodlebug Garden at your local quilt store (ask for it from the Pattern Peddlers), or instantly downloadable in my Craftsy store.

Be sure to check back next week for my 2 year blogiversary.  I’m putting together a tutorial and fun little quilt project for you to celebrate!

Happy Stitching!
