Another New Pattern and Giveaway

Good morning! Today I have another pattern live in my Pattern Shop: Chain Reaction. You can buy the pattern in my shop, or on Craftsy or Threadbias.

This quilt originally appeared in Quiltmaker magazine, and I'm now offering it as a stand-alone pattern. The piecing is easier than you think—no paper-piecing or templates necessary for this one! All you need is a little careful cutting and a scant 1/4" seam, and you're in business. : ) (But yes, it is important that your cutting is accurate and your seams are scant and straight to succeed.)

This pattern includes detailed step-by-step instructions with a photo or illustration for nearly every step. The pattern also includes instructions for making the quilt in three different sizes: Baby (40" x 48"), Lap (56" x 72"), and Twin (72" x 88").


Once again, I'm offering a free digital copy of the pattern to three winners. Just comment on this post for a chance to win. And once again, I'm kicking off the introduction of this pattern with a sale! The PDF pattern is just $6, now through Monday!

Also, FYI, I'm now offering hard-copy versions of both Cartwheels and Chain Reaction, to U.S. customers only. Hard-copy patterns will be $12.50, and that price includes shipping via First Class Mail. Customers in Canada and all other countries can still purchase my patterns in PDF form. (Sorry, I just don't want to deal with customs and postage to other countries.) Hard-copy patterns can be purchased only in my Pattern Shop.

  25. I always liked this quilt. I always thought that it was really difficult to make. Maybe paper piecing or you needed to print off templates. Now that you explained that this pattern doesn't need either, I would love to make this quilt. You have me really excited about this quilt now. I would really love to win. I know, so does every else. But, thank you for giving us all the opportunity to win. You are one very talented quilter and enjoy following you.

  77. How did I not know that you wrote this pattern? I'm in the Scrap Squad this year for QuiltMaker and we made this quilt first. I used an easy method for cutting on the diagonal with painters tape on my cutting mat. I wrote about it in my blog post on the quilt. http://www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/2012/03/qm-scrap-squad-jills-chain-reaction/

    It was a fun quilt to make!!
