I have been designing patterns for BasicGrey for awhile now. However, while my quilts have gone to market, I have not! So, it was very exciting for me to see my quilt design hanging in the BasicGrey booth this year and to meet a staff member from BasicGrey who I first started working with about 5 years ago now, for the first time.
This is my new pattern design featuring BasicGrey’s soon to be released collection called Persimmon. I love both the fabric and the quilt design. It sews together easily yet the design is interesting and fun, with a modern feel. The quilting accentuates the modern feel. It was done by Abby Latimer.
The folks at Moda also made a version of this quilt to hang in the main section of the booth which was opposite the BasicGrey display. I love the quilting on theirs too; it results in a completely different feel to the quilt. I sort of stalked this booth throughout market because a gentleman from Moda was sitting in front of the quilt meeting with customers and I wanted a picture. I finally explained myself on Sunday and asked him politely to move. The Moda rep next to him laughed and said that’s why he wasn’t sitting in front of a quilt. Apparently, they get asked a lot!
The pattern will be released with the fabric collection in September. The pattern will be on sale at BasicGrey in both paper and pdf. Both the pattern and the fabric will be available in the Fat Quarter Shop. Also look for the pattern and fabric in your local quilt shop.
