Free Pattern by KMQG's Sarah Elliott

Big news, folks! Recently, KMQG member Sarah Elliott designed a quilt pattern that was accepted and published online by Moda Bake Shop, a great source of free patterns for all different kinds of sewn and quilted projects. Sarah's design, called In Good Company, is a real beauty, and she was kind enough to let us share it with our blog readers here. Visit Sarah's website, QuiltModerne, to see more of her beautiful work.


Hi Everyone!

​Meet In Good Company, my first tutorial for the Moda Bake Shop!

IGC is my take on a traditional friendship star quilt. I had a lot of fun playing with scale and alternate grid work. I used Natalia & Kathleen's upcoming fabric collection for Moda, Thrive. I am crazy about the limited, modern palette and linear designs in the prints. I'm so happy I have leftover fabric, because I'm going to need to make another quilt and possibly some pillows with the panel that comes with the FQ bundle. Thrive ships in October. (However a quick internet search confirmed it is available for pre-order at Fat Quarter Shop.)

I was very lucky that my annual trip to Michigan fell at just the right time to get some beautiful shots of the quilt with Lake Michigan as a backdrop. My photography skills are a work in progress so I was grateful to have the beautiful blue waters of one of the Great Lakes in the background. If you have a few minutes, I'd love it if you'd check out the tutorial over at the Bake Shop.
