My new fabric collection for 2023 is Sun Showers, from Maywood Studio. This fabric line is inspired by the dramatic spring weather in the Pacific Northwest - full of light and shadow and so much color!
The collection features a range of prints, from whimsical raindrops to cheerful florals. The color palette is equally playful, with shades of pink, purple, blue, and green evoking the feeling of a spring garden in full bloom.
Sun Showers Quilt
I've designed a total of four quilt patterns for this fabric line. The first quilt is the FREE Sun Showers Quilt pattern. This is a great quilt pattern for beginners; it uses a single simple quilt block - -the half square triangle - -and doesn't require precision. It finishes at 68" x 75". You can use Fat Quarters to make the quilt. Psst! I have a few Fat Quarter bundles left in my shop!
The next quilt I want to introduce is the Dazzler quilt. This quilt uses one strip roll (jelly roll), 1 1/4 yards of background fabric, and 1/8 yard of an accent fabric for the center star. I consider this pattern to be an intermediate level as it features working with wedges and an English Paper Pieced center! This quilt finishes at 50" x 50". You can purchase the digital pattern here. I also have a few strip rolls in my shop!
The next pattern I created is Reflection - another wedge quilt! A kaleidoscope of shifting color comes together with glorious geometry in this one. You'll be amazed at what's possible with this simple quilt block, made with wedges. Don't have a wedge ruler? No problem, as the pattern includes a paper template to make the wedges. This quilt finishes at 59" x 68". You can purchase the digital pattern here.
The last pattern to share with you is Frisky! Scatter bright leaves into an inviting color wash. This beginner-friendly quilt features fusible web instructions with a printable template included. It finishes at 45" x 54". You can purchase the digital pattern here.
Whether you're a seasoned quilter or just starting out, the Spring Showers fabric line and patterns are here to inspire you. With lively prints and fresh colors, this collection is a must-have for anyone looking to add a touch of spring to their next project. So go ahead and embrace the season of new beginnings and start creating something beautiful today!
