Teen Dreams


What do you get when you combine a funky Jelly Roll, some gorgeous raspberry fat quarters, the old dependable white homespun and some input from Maddi (the most inspirational teenage I know!!!!!).......my new design, Teen Dreams:


This is a quilt and cushion combination and there is only a minimal leftover from the Jelly Roll, which makes me very happy!! Not only is this fun to make but Maddi is happy and its a great size for her to snuggle under to read, study and write that next great novel!!


Lots of simple piecing and applique make this a quick quilt to create and yehhh I have stippled it all over, I just love the effect!! The bindings are made from the left over Jelly Roll strips and they finish it off well.

Included in the pattern are two cushion options, because Maddi just loves cushions!!! I think you could probably make 3 cushions if you really wanted too!
This is my last design for 2009, Im taking the next few weeks to get ready for Xmas and to finish off a few quilt tops from my own personal collection.........so stay tuned, some of your favorites may become quilts very soon and Im also looking forward to starting Bonnies new mystery quilt! Anne Ida is doing this one with me and I know she has already pulled her gorgeous fabrics, Ill just wing it as I go!!! Should be heaps of fun!
So I have 2 copies of the new Teen Dreams pattern up for grabs!! Leave a comment on this post to enter. Good luck and stay tuned for the winners draw next week!!

Hi Rose!!
I am loving this quilt and pillow BUT although I can SEE why a teenager would love this quilt it could easily be loved by a grandma, baby or the 'in betweens'! Well done! Please throw my name into the hat as I would LOVE to make this quilt....and I'm not telling you which category I fit into....although I would LOVE to be a grandma!! Take care and thanks for the chance to win this lovely pattern!!

Fabulous quilt, please pick me. I am giving my daughter my old sewing machine and a jelly roll for her 9th birthday next week and this would be a lovely project for us to work on together. Such a lovely happy quilt.

Uh Oh.. I am thinking it could be 'lock-up-the-stash-my-daughters-a-designer-in-waiting' time.. Love this one Rose, and the quilting sets it off so well.. You know, I have a couple of jelly rolls and haven't been able to chop into them yet..
