A New Pattern- Outburst!

Do I have a surprise for you! So many of you have asked for a pattern for my Outburst quilt... well... Here it is! It is available now in both my Craftsy and Etsy shops!

Outburst Quilt Pattern

A few short weeks ago, I was asked by Robert Kaufman Fabrics to remake my Outburst quilt in blues, greens and yellows for their quilt market booth. I was quite surprised, and although I am in the middle of a couple other quilt projects, I had to drop them on the spot and say yes!

In the process, I made it my goal to finish writing the pattern and have it ready for purchase by quilt market! The pattern includes instructions for both my new version and the original pink/orange/yellow version. I also included a "design-your-own" coloring page and full instructions, in case you decide you want to play with the color a bit yourself!

In the spirit of celebration, I'm also linking up to Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! In order to win a PDF copy of Outburst, please leave me a comment stating what color palette you think would be fabulous in this quilt. Comments will be open until May 16 at 7:00 pm CDT. For a second chance to win, like my new Sewlio Facebook page and comment on the Outburst pattern Facebook post letting me know you did. One winner will be chosen from the blog comments and one from Facebook comments. The winners will be announced and notified on May 17.

  6. That's such a stunning pattern, the effect is sort of gingham'ish, but way more awesome! For me, I'd love to see it either in monochrome black/grey/white, or in all shades of blue from navy through to duck egg. Wow!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love the plaid effect when the lines of colour cross over each other. I think this would be gorgeous done in purples or icy wintry blues!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think this would be lovely as a wintery, almost monochromatic color palette. It would be a very pretty snowflake!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think this pattern would be really cool as a monochromatic-- ranging in all shades of the color-- so pastel to deep, rich, super-saturated. For some reason, purple came to mind.

    I also think the quilt would be interesting with a black background instead of white.

    ReplyDelete

  34. Red, orange, and yellow is my favorite combo, but you've already done that! I think I'd love to try it with polka dots. Like using confetti dots and where they cross use the mini confetti dots.

  121. I would love to try this - it would be perfect for the quilt I was telling my sister in law about tonight. She is on holidays in Morocco and sent me a picture of a stunning metal door with a similar starburst design which I said when I learnt more about quilting would be a great design to emulate. An hour later I find out that you have made it into a pattern already. I love the Red, Orange, Yellow design above but I would love to try one in Purple, Pink & Yellow (my daughters favourites)

    ReplyDelete
  122. Oooh, wow! What a lovely quilt design. I'm off to pin it to my quilting Pinterest board right away, but in the meantime - I'd make it in shades of light pink with aqua binding, because that is my color combo and it follows me wherever I go. It'd be so soft and sweet like that, don'tcha think? Thanks so much for this great giveaway chance! ( julie at button-button dot co dot uk )
