New Pattern: Quandry

Happy Thursday, Friends!  Today I’m so excited to be sharing with you a new pattern, Quandry!

This is an intermediate level foundation paper pieced pattern.  I provide step-by-step directions, lots of diagrams, cutting templates, and of course the printable foundation paper templates.  But if you’re completely new to paper piecing, you may want to look online for basic tutorials to get started.  I love this tutorial from Fresh Lemons quilts.

Quandry measures 53” by 71”, and makes a gorgeous wedding gift.  I need to make a third quilt from this pattern, as the two shown in the pictures have already found new homes with newlywed family members. (I can assure you, this is a MUCH easier wedding gift to make than a double wedding ring!  All straight seams, but you still get the lovely effect of curves!) Isn’t it fun how changing the background fabric from light to dark makes different elements pop?

You can purchase a digital copy of Quandry from UpCraftClub or Craftsy.  This week, it will be discounted 25% in both shops.  For those of you in EU countries, please use the UpCraftClub website, as they are equipped to handle VAT.

What colors will you use to make your Quandry quilt?  Please share in the comments below, and be sure to tag your instagram pictures with #quandryquilt, and tag me, @thecaffeinatedquilter, so we can all see your beautiful work!

Happy Stitching!

    Wow! I am a fan of straight seams. This one is going on my list of “I want tos”. I do love how small color changes alter the effect. Beautiful!

    Great pattern Emily. I have made a few that are like this with all straight seams that give the impression of curves and circles. Great fun and easy for most quilters to tackle.
