Cartwheels Quilt Pattern - And a Giveaway!

Ready to do some Cartwheels?

Cartwheels pattern
My Cartwheels Quilt Pattern is now available! You can purchase the pattern in my pattern shop, on Craftsy, or on Threadbias

I'm so excited to be making this pattern available that I'm putting it on sale for $6.00 through Dec. 21. After that, it will go back up to its normal price of $8.00, so buy it now and save! 

Some details on the pattern:
• It includes full instructions for making this quilt in three different sizes—Baby (46" x 56"), Lap (60" x 70"), and Twin (74" x 90")
This is a paper-piecing pattern. It includes a full-size paper-piecing template, with seam allowances included. Cutting instructions to make the paper-pieced blocks are also included.
• The pattern is 5 pages long with tons of detailed illustrations and diagrams.

Cartwheels quilt
This pattern is perfect for beginning paper-piecers. There aren't any seams to line up when you piece the templated sections, which makes it super simple. All you have to do is sew on the line, and you'll have a perfect quilt in no time! No, seriously! : )

And if you've never done paper-piecing before, I promise it's easier than you think. There are lots of tutorials available online for learning how to paper-piece, but my favorite the one Faith of Fresh Lemons Quilts made for our Summer Sampler Series. Check it out right here!

Baby quilt in progress
And let's start out my pattern adventure on the right foot—I'm giving away 3 free copies! Just comment on this post for a chance to win. I'll announce the winners on Tuesday.

Thanks for supporting my little pattern business, and if you pick up Cartwheels, I hope you enjoy making it! Have a wonderful weekend!

Lynda said...

a pattern that would be fun to work with - I have discovered paper piecing over this past year and quite enjoy it - need to get a better set up in my space - a lot of getting up and down between sewing and ironing and trimming - between two different rooms..it would be wonderful to win a copy of your pattern - here's hoping

Misty said...

This is s great pattern! I've loved it since you posted the quilt the first time and I'd love to try my hand at paper piecing. I'd be a great baby quilt (seems like everyone is prego) and definitely a lap quilt for me! Thanks for the chance to win!

pianomama said...

So cute! I've never tried paper piecing - but this actually looks doable!

Kelsey said...

Such a great quilt design! Thanks for the giveaway!

Carolinoz said...

I love this pattern, and because I'm in a new group just formed with new paper piecers, this would be a great beginner project. I think it would be fun to make a lot of squares and exchange with each other, which is perfect with paper piecing because everyone's square would be the exact same size!

Amy said...

Ohhh, my favorite kind of quilt design. A bit wonky, a bit complex (but not overly so) and modern. I love it! Thanks for the giveaway.

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

I love paper piecing and love your design!

Tsigeyusv said...

You ever note how the pics of the finished quilts have a bit of a optical illusion. In the first photo the quilting appears to be normal and goes down into the quilt to make ditches, but in the second photo the quilting appears to raise up from the pieced fabric?
Maybe I'm the only one, but I've seen this illusion several times and its weird. When I turn the image upside down, then I can finally see the quilting as it should appear.
Regardless of the illusion, I'd love to win this patter. It's a true charmer.

Ginny said...

Love this quilt! Would love to win the pattern to make my very own! Thanks!
