It’s Tussie Mussie Time!

Friday, May 10th, 2019

It is in the webstore and ready for you to purchase.

And at a special price of just $6 from now until midnight on Sunday, May 12th.

This pattern is 14 pages and jam packed with written and visual instructions, the story behind Tussie Mussie, a full quilt coloring page and fabric palette page. The fabric palette page is a tool I use for myself when sewing so I hope you find it useful too.

It has been a long time in the making for this unique rectangle block and quilt. This block was created probably about 6-7 years ago and was toyed with and tried out in several settings many times. Nothing seemed right until this setting was dreamed up last year.

Then the fabric pulling began and the polka dot fabric you see has lived in my stash for 15+ years. I had a yard. The pattern calls for 1-1/4 yards. So if you ever see this quilt in person you will see 3 or 4 of my squares are pieced. It works, the pattern on the fabric has enough movement that you don’t see the piecing unless you are looking for it. I wanted to use that fabric and nothing was going to stop me as it along with this quilt are very special to me.

note – this picture shows just 2/3rds of the quilt

Enter the floral. YES! screamed my brain. I knew they had enough in common color wise and tone that they could play together in a quilt. The trick is not to have them touch. And fields of calm between them in soft textured monochromatic fabrics. Somewhere for the eyes to rest.

I absolutely love this quilt (don’t tell the others…it is a favorite) but I knew some would need to see it in a softer palette so I made it again featuring pinks, purples and yellow. I love it again.
