MAZED Quilt Pattern & Giveaway

I am so very excited to finally be able to share with you all my 1st pattern, MAZED.

This has been a super-long time in the making because while I was creating the quilt and writing the pattern, I was also starting and setting up my little business St. Louis Folk Victorian...so I could officially distribute and sell my patterns.

Let me start by saying that none of this would be possible without the help of Family and Friends.  Not only did they give me the encouragement to pursue this adventure; but they "suffered" through hours of commentary, discussion, photo-taking, pattern-testing, etc.  Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Now it's picture time....






I have created an Etsy shop where you can buy either the hardcopy or PDF version, and they both include the following:
  • Materials Needed
  • Cutting Instructions
  • Detailed Step-by-step instructions along with diagrams
  • Additional block ideas and quilt layouts

Etsy Shop

If you own a shop and are interested in carrying my pattern,
let's talk...send me an email.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finally, what fun is a BIG annoucement without a little Giveaway, eh?

How would you like the chance to win your very own hardcopy of MAZED? 


To enter, all you need to do is leave me a comment below by Friday, April 13th  - 9pm CST. 

---Giveaway now closed----
Good Luck!! and don't worry...if you miss your opportunity to win this Giveaway, a few friends
will be hosting giveaways on their blogs over the next few weeks.  I'll let you know when/where.

Not only do I like the pattern, but your use of materials is lovely! I'm intrigued to know if there is a "way out" of this "maze" ? :)

Great quilt design! Beautiful quilt! Congrats and good luck with your new business. I know what it takes to create the pattern instructions, but it is so rewarding to see other intrepretations of your design.
