It is time though, to release my first mini quilt for 2017 and your free January calendar. So if your a little girl at heart like me, I think you are going to love this one. Let me introduce Suzanne:
I used a few Bonnie and Camille fabrics for this quilt and I teamed them with the gorgeous navy fabric from my stash, which I think makes Suzanne look dressed to impress.
I think my favorite design element is her gorgeous bonnet and ribbon, which obscures her face and gives her that air of mystery. As a girl I would have be happy to wear a bright red bonnet just like Suzanne's :)
I quilted my Suzanne quilt with some lovely free motion flowers which not only gives it a gorgeous texture but also a more feminine feel.
The PDF pattern also includes full instructions and diagrams and full sized FPP design sheets. There's also a colouring sheet to help your plan your colour/fabric selections prior to sewing your mini quilt and additional instructions to add a hanging sleeve or hanging corners.
If you would like to make Suzanne for yourself or for that special little girl in your life, from today until the end of January 2017, PDF patterns are available at the introductory price of $4.95 (AU) in my Big Cartel shop HERE.
Or if you prefer an instant download, PDF patterns are also available in my Etsy shop HERE.
Plus I have your free January 2017 calendar featuring the gorgeous Suzanne:
I hope you love my Suzanne mini quilt as much as I do. She is very sweet and I'm sure I'll be making a few more of these for my nieces and great niece :)
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year. 2016 has been a wonderful year for me and your support has been amazing! You encourage me everyday to design the things I love, to share the recipes I enjoy and through your comments and emails, I have been blessed with lovely friendships that I treasure. May 2017 be an amazing year for you and your family, full of good health, love, laughter, friendship and lots of sewing time :)
