Like my Botanics quilt pattern, new pattern Everglade quilt pattern is a design set where I let myself get carried away with possibilities.
It started off with the larger (throw-sized) one, initially inspired by a perforated wall I’d seen on travels earlier this year.
(Such a stunning place.)
But after making it, I couldn’t stop thinking of other ways to alter the design with scale, fabric choices and symmetry of each block.
As a result, the pattern consists of two sets of templates in two different sizes, plus multiple ways to use each–making it a series to play with and explore across many projects in many ways. The above is made with a large single block, much like the Circle Lattice project (also featured above) in Savor Each Stitch.
There are also a couple of minis…which were too much fun to make.
I worked it out so that all of the options work with relatively easy fabric increments (fat quarters, single yards, 5″ squares, 10″ squares), because that just makes the mixing and matching more accessible. (All of the fabric in these projects are from my carkai collection.)
And, you can also make some pincushions!
So fun. (I have been a little obsessed with pincushions…)
I hope you enjoy my new Everglade Quilt Pattern!

I love how creative you are. By taking something that could be boring by being repetitive, you elevate it into something that captivates the eye with motion and pattern.
These look wonderful. You do such amazing work!

What a lovely set of makes! The colorful baby quilt is my favorite. My eye enjoys studying each one though!
The photo of GatorLand brought back a flood of memories for me. In the early 1970’s my family and I took a road trip to Disney World, Gatorland was one of the stops. Fun. Lovely quilts!
What thread weight do you use when binding by machine? Thanks.
