Shining Through in Citified

Welcome to my stop on the Citified blog tour, celebrating Sherry's new signature line with Island Batik. If this is your first time here, then an extra welcome to you!

One of the fun things about being a quilt pattern designer is seeing the patterns I design made in different colours and that's what I've done with my Shining Through pattern. The original quilt has a navy background and yellow bars, so with this version I chose a light background and purples and blues for the bars. The Shining Through pattern is available in my Etsy shop.

Shining Through is a fun quilt to make. It stitches up quickly, there are only a few points to match up and the relatively large squares can really show off the fabrics. I designed it to use in a beginners quilting class, so it's perfect for beginners! See the quilts my beginning quilters made in this post.

Aren't these prints in the Citified line fabulous? I especially love that dark blue with the circles/bubbles.

We have a lot of snow right now, so my friend Jessica and I took the quilt top on a snowshoe trek through the woods last weekend. It was a wonderful way to spend part of a Sunday afternoon. It was a little windy at times, though!

I haven't decided yet how I want to quilt this one, so it's just sitting while I ponder the possibilities. My first one I quilted with straight lines with my walking foot, since that was what I taught the class to do. This time I'll definitely be doing free motion quilting, but the specifics are not coming together yet.

The Shining Through pattern is available as a PDF or a printed pattern (with free shipping!)
