I recently had the opportunity to test out a new pattern for a friend.
Kati blogs at From the Blue Chair, and I’m lucky enough to get to hang out with her all the time. She’s the one who designed the gallery quilt I made last year, and she has recently started selling her patterns! She has such a great eye for placement and color… when I grow up, I want to be just like her.
I tested the Honeycomb pattern for her. It’s amazing. It looks a lot more difficult than it really is. (Which in turn makes you look like your quilting skills are off the hook awesome.)
If you’re scared of triangles, don’t worry, She has great instructions for cutting them precisely, and tips for piecing which will get your points nearly perfect every time. Unless you don’t follow her instructions, as I didn’t on the first section I put together (only because I forgot what I had read), your points will make even the most critical of people happy.
She has the pattern for sale on Craftsy (instant download and automatic updates if she were ever to change instructions) or on her Etsy site. If you love the colors she put together for this quilt, you can pick up a kit here, or choose the cool colors shown on her pattern here.
I’ll show you the other side of the quilt soon. It was a special gift for our outgoing president of the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild.
