If any of you have been keeping up with me from the beginning, you may remember a small line of patterns I released years ago. Some of those patterns created my favorite quilts. The patterns were just buried under digital piles of paper, not sold any more and just gathering virtual cobwebs. Well, long story short, since I’ve reactivated the good ol’blog and Etsy store, the next logical thing was to brush some dust off of those old patterns, give them a facelift and put them back in the world!
Paved Stitches is my most favorite one. It was my third release, back when Alison Glass’ Lucky Penny line was first out. I had this bundle of beautiful fabric and I knew those larger scale prints need to be shown off, and at the same time I wanted something not too large for the bike path prints. So I created this pattern that has interest in the varying sizes to really show off the line.
Paved Stitches is fantastic to use with a fat quarter bundle, but can also be very easily done with scraps.
All of the sashing and different prints is a natural combination for some really fun free motion quilting experimentation too! I chose to quilt pebbles in all of the gray sashing, and alternated between swirls and wavy lines or echo flowers for the larger pieces.
The redesign of the pattern includes updated instructions, better diagrams, and has a blank layout page for you to layout and color your own color scheme!
Paved Stitches is available now in my Etsy shop. If you purchase it before the end of March and use code SAVE20, you will get 20% off of your download!
I hope you enjoy it and love your quilt as much as I have loved mine! If you do make it, please send me pictures or use the hashtag #pavedstitchesquilt or #kdquiltsdesign
