Cinnamon Jiffy & Spiked Shortbread.....

Can only mean one thing....
I have a BIG CARTEL site :)
It's called
Spun Sugar Quilt Designs

I am so excited.
I still have more patterns that I want to add and change the design,
in the mean time, I will still be selling my patterns on Patternspot.com.
I am toying with the idea of an etsy or ebay site,
I am not sure yet.
This is the Spiked Shortbread baby quilt.
It is an intermediate level quilt because it uses a template for the 'spikes'.
Marti Michel's template set R to be exact.
The inspiration for this quilt can from an over all feeling that I wanted to use the materials, templates and rulers that I already own.
Plus I wanted a quilt that looked modern, but I don't do well with wonky piecing.
The templates helped me 'feel' good about my piecing and
achieve the look of many of the modern quilts I see on other blogs.

I had the Template set R from my Chocolate Drop quilt that can be found on Moda Bakeshop HERE.

Remember that?
yep I used the same template for both.

Spike Shortbread is pieced very quickly when you use the template.
It's only 38" x 40" and I machine quilted it with my walking foot in about 4 hours.
It's definitely a quilt that you can make in a weekend.

*************
Cinnamon Jiffy is another pattern that I designed a couple of years ago for Quiltmaker.
I decided to release the pdf version.

Once again this quilt can be created in a weekend especially if you a charm pack or 2 1/2" scrap squares.

I used French General Panier de fleur for this model,
as well as Verna by Kate Spain
and I have used Origins by Basic Grey.
It's been WELL tested!

And for those of you that kindly read this entire post,
I am giving away 2 sets of my PDF patterns.
Leave me a comment on THIS post and I will randomly select a 2 winners on
April 21st.
*One rule*
Leave me an email so that I can contact you and directly email the patterns!!

Best of Luck!

I love Chocolate Stars and Cinnamon Jiffy! Both are very pretty. My favorite pattern of yours is the star tabletopper using Darlene Zimmerman's 30 degree triangle ruler. That was one of the first tutorials I ever made. Thanks for the giveaway!

How exciting to have started your own webshop!Love the Spike Shortbread.
I hope you don't mind me saying, that I do think the website does not show the brightness and happy feeling that goes with you. But, it is all very clear!!
