Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2016

Here's the first of my two entries to the latest Blogger's Quilt Festival. This one I'm proudly entering in the Original Design category. You can read more about this quilt, Round Peg, Square Hole in this previously published, detailed blogpost.

Round Peg, Square Hole by Poppyprint, August 2016. 38" square. RJR Supreme Cotton Solids.
Made with 100% RJR Supreme Cotton Solids: 38" square

Round Peg, Square Hole hung recently in the VMQG Showcase and is now on it's way to RJR headquarters for display in their booth at Fall Quilt Market. I really wish I could accompany my quilts on their exciting trips!

I've had three generous friends pour over this pattern and test it out by making their own fantastic versions of Quarter Round (a 4-block mini quilt).  After incorporating their great suggestions, I have taken the plunge and opened a pattern shop on Craftsy! YES! You can now purchase a .pdf pattern that includes instructions for Quarter Round AND Round Peg, Square Hole.  I'm so excited because there are a gazillion possibilities for secondary patterning and fun colour play with this block and I'll never in my lifetime be able to make them all myself. I need all of you to try out it and show me what you can do with this pattern!

Find this (and four of my other patterns) for instant purchase and download here.

I love this effect: contrast cranked up and converted to grey scale!
