Noodles Pattern Release

Have you ever had a project that had no clear deadline, so it stayed on the 'I should get to that someday' list for.e.ver? Releasing my Noodles pattern has been that project for me, but today I can finally cross it off because the pattern is now available! Happy dance, happy dance! You can get Noodles as a PDF or preorder the print pattern, which will ship as soon as they arrive from the printer 😊

I made this mini quilt back in 2015 for Fat Quarterly magazine, which hasn't been around for quite a while now. That tells you how long this pattern has been sitting waiting for its turn! At the time, my friend Michelle told me the curved contrast strip reminded her of macaroni noodles, which gave the quilt its name. It's great to have a friend who can name quilts for me, lol, since I'm often at a loss for names.

The pattern includes the mini quilt shown here, which finishes at 20" square. It also includes baby quilt (40" square) and throw quilt (60" x 70") size options. These blocks are a lot of fun to piece and I'm planning a throw size version next, using blues for the blocks and a mix of yellows, oranges and whites for the contrast strip. It's going to be a fun, scrappy version and I can't wait.

Piecing curves is one of those techniques that feels really scary before we try it, but I promise it's totally doable! The curve in the Noodles block is a nice, gentle curve and the magic of bias edges is just amazing 😊 I'll be making my scrappy throw size version as I demonstrate piecing these Noodles blocks in the new virtual workshop I'm offering, so if you'd like to have me teach at your guild or shop, send me an email and we'll get a date set up.

To celebrate this long awaited release, Noodles is available at its introductory price for this long weekend, through Monday, May 24th. Preorder the printed pattern or pick up the PDF and get sewing those curves right away 😊
