I'm super excited to share my brand new venture with you today, I've been working on it for several months and it's been hard to keep it to myself.

I'm delighted to share my first pattern for purchase.

I designed the wall hanging at the request of my friend Susan Sato, owner of Easy Piecing

and that leads me on to the second part of my new venture.

The Harlequin Quilt Pattern is also available as part of this kit over at the Easy Piecing website and also on the road at the Easy Piecing vending booth.

This weekend, the kit will also be available at the Easy Piecing vending booth for the first time at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA (Booth #224) and again, 2-5 March, at the Quilt & Sewing Fest of New Jersey, Somerset, NJ (Booth #109).  You can click through to Susan's website to see her full list of vending gigs for 2017.

Hanging horizontally or vertically, the Harlequin Quilt design, measuring approx 22" x 19-1/2", is simple yet stunning, allowing the fabric to speak for itself - and these jewel tone luxurious Dupioni silks certainly do that.

Of course, as a wall hanging, the pattern can be made using most fabric types: quilting weight cotton, home decor weight and more and it makes quite a statement simply pieced or used as a backdrop for further embroidery, handwork or embellishment.

Working with fabrics more suited to heat and washing than Dupioni silk, you could also use it as a table topper, instead of batting create your sandwich with The Warm Company's Insul-Bright metallised polyester 'batting' that reflects heat back to its source.

Busily making another fabric version of the Harlequin Quilt Pattern, I'm considering making this one into a padded notice board for my sewing studio.  Have to see how I feel when the quilt top is made, I'm practically drooling over the fabrics so there's a still a chance I'll keep it as a wall hanging.  Naturally, I'll share photos when it's done.
