Sweet! Good things come to those who wait…and I have been waiting anxiously for this date to tell you about Jewels of The Caribbean, #TQR018
Jewels of the Caribbean uses the Wedge Star from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design.
Jewels of The Caribbean is made with fabrics from my second signature collection, Sea Glass, by Island Batik. The fabric is in stores now (be sure to check out my webstore for precuts!).
A little fun tidbit….I design my quilts in Electric Quilt 8 (or EQ8 for short). Just recently EQ offered their Stash 2021 Download 3 which included Sea Glass!!! I would have missed it had my sister not been on their mailing list and brought it to my attention. As a designer with Island Batik I receive these digital images long before the public, but I have to admit, it was/is kinda cool to see your name in print so I spent the few dollars and downloaded the collection (which had other fabrics too).
Here’s the fabrics used in Jewels of The Caribbean from the Sea Glass collection.
By the way, click on the digital download tab to be redirected to my blank Fabric Key that you can print out to make a key for your projects. Very handy if I do say so myself!
It’s been a busy year so far, I feel like I’ve spent more time at the computer, either designing or pattern writing, than I have at the sewing machine. Here’s a look at my messy desk and multitasking with pattern editing, texting, and printing out a fabric key for my pattern tester Pat Reed.
I had asked Pat if she would be willing to test the pattern with my first Signature Collection, Vincent’s Garden, to which she agreed as she said the fabrics reminded her of her sunny Galveston Island home. I love the way it turned out and I am going to have to grab some more Vincent’s Garden from my store before it’s all gone to make one for myself!
Jewels of the Caribbean is a 24 page full color pattern with over 40 illustrations! The Wedge Star technique is not difficult, just detailed. That’s why I like to “hold your hand” with clear and precise instructions as well as plenty of graphics for those of us who “quilt by picture!”
The print booklet is now “gone to press” and will be here before the end of the month. All preorders will be autographed and mailed (USA only) as soon as they are delivered.
My international customers, and those who prefer a Digital PDF download, you are in for a sweet treat (after all it is Valentines!). Jewels of the Caribbean digital is available TODAY! Sorry, I haven’t figured out how to autograph that for you, but I am adding a bonus coloring page for a limited time only.
How About a giveaway!!! Due to shipping costs, the Fat Quarter Bundle of Sea Glass is limited to USA residents only.
I hope you will enjoy this newest addition to The Quilt Rambler Patterns. Be sure to check out our full line of patterns!
This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler – Wishing you a day full of love and joy!
Jewels of the Caribbean has Oscar’s Stamp of Approval.
