A dash of Navy, with a slice of Lime

I quite adore this quilt. I really do.
It's a colour scheme I'd never have normally picked, but I'm so glad I did. There is something so fresh, and so clean about Navy and Lime, with a lot of white.
Almost makes me want to change the colour scheme for our nursery. Almost. 

This little quilt is perfect for a cot, and has been made using half square triangles just placed about randomly. I do quite like the random, messy, craziness of it all. 'Tis fun!
It's currently up for sale in my Etsy Shop. Hopefully it will go to a great home.

Thank you for helping me to celebrate the release of my first pattern, and for entering my little giveaway. For those interested, the winner is Michell! Congratulations Michell! I hope you enjoy your prize.

Happy Sewing!

Chevron Quilt Pattern and a Giveaway!

Giveaway closed!
Thank you for entering!

It's been awhile since I've written a quilt pattern for a magazine, so I admit to feeling a bit of nervous apprehension with this post. You know how it is. You put so much energy and time and effort into something, then to release it to the world, at the risk of rejection and correction - it's quite scary!
I only hope that the reading, and the re-reading, and the checking and double checking have found any and all necessary corrections!

So, whilst it is with a bit of nerves, it's also with great excitement that I officially release my first Missy Mack pattern to the general public! *deliriously imagines cherry applause*

The pattern is called Summertime Chevron, and includes instructions for the pictured Cot quilt. But it also includes further instructions for a Single/Twin variation, and a Queen size quilt.
It is a striking and pretty quilt, and one I am quite proud of.

The pattern is available in either a PDF form, or a paper hardcopy version, and both can be found in my Etsy shop here.

So to celebrate, I will be giving away one Paper Hardcopy version of Summertime Chevron, plus a Moda Odds and Ends Charm Pack to the winner.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post for one entry. For another bonus entry, blog about this giveaway, (please let me know if you blog about it, so I can add your entry!)
Giveaway will close in one week from today, so that is Wednesday the 12th of September at 7pm AEST.

Good luck!
