It’s finally here! Our first pattern!
One of the things Lynn and I agreed on immediately was having a sense of fun in our quilt patterns, and re-invigorating classic blocks. We have a lot of the same references from pop culture, so we thought it would be perfect to draw inspiration from popular movies and music as we were growing up. So Stripper’s Knot is inspired by the Lover’s Knot block, updated as a fun nod to movies such as Flashdance and Pretty Woman.
You can learn a little more about the quilt in this short intro video! Behold, my 1987 jean jacket.
With this pattern launch, our shop is officially open! You’ll see other patterns pop up shortly.
If you’ve got the Melon Block Template from Elisa’s Backporch Design, those will definitely help. If you’re like Pam and don’t have a bunch of specialty rulers, you can just use the printable paper template included in the pattern!
There are a ton of pictures to show the process along the way, so you’ll learn how to sew curved seams and how to miter a border. Of course, you can chuck all that out the window and just use a layer cake and a plain border to make the quilt like I did!
