Marine Den Quilt Pattern

It's been a long time coming, but the Marine Den Quilt Pattern is finally here!

Here's the Quilty Stats for the most recent version: 
Post-wash dimensions: 56"x37"
Batting: Warm & White from The Warm Company
Front Fabric: Michael Miller Cotton Couture solid in Wedgewood, Kona Cotton Blue, Ash, Ivory, and Celery, a gray "wood floors" print, Pearl Bracelets in Citron, River Bend, and Sandbox.
Back Fabric: Pearl Bracelets in River Bend
Binding Fabric: Kona Cotton in Celery
Quilting: Free Motion and Stitching in the Ditch with the Janome Horizon 8900 QCP.

You've seen me work through a few versions of this quilt, but all the tweaking and double checking was worth it. I'm super proud of this modern quilt pattern that's been nagging at my brain since 2011. 

It's up and posted in My Pattern Store on Craftsy. I love their interface and the way they automatically alert you about updates or changes to any of the patterns that you have purchased. I also like that they send 100% of pattern sales back to the designer. That's not the way it works for PatternSpot or Etsy, so I like to release on Craftsy first. They're not paying me to say this; it's just true. They're awesome, and I thank them for it. 

I cannot wait to see the versions of the Marine Den quilt that ya'll sew up. Please email me with your photos, as I would LOVE to feature them on the blog. 

I'm participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival this week with this most recent Marine Den quilt! I'm not making the trek to Portland for spring market, so this is a fun way to celebrate from home. I will definitely be going to Houston for fall market, though ;-)

Happy Crafting!
