The Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild is having a sale tomorrow (11/15/2012), and I thought I’d just load up some images of the smaller items I made…

After playing with the coloring page, I think I’ve decided on making a bit of a masculine version this time around. I’m using Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Black for the squares (my first time having all of the squares be the same fabric) and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax for the plus signs. Kona PFD for the background.
Make your own coloring page by using THIS IMAGE.
Don’t forget, you can use the code POSITIVE15 at Pink Castle Fabrics throughout October to get a 15% off discount!
ALSO – If you’re willing to buy a little extra background fabric, I’ll be showing you a short cut for the quilt. Although the directions in the pattern show the best way to cut-out the pieces for conserving fabric, this exclusive QAL tip will save you time where it costs you fabric. Pick up an extra 1/2 – 1 yard and embrace a willingness to wing-it!
Check it out!
From my dream to reality. Thanks to the awesome engineering and woodworking skills of my dad at the Woodlands Sawmill, there now exists a sturdy, wooden hanger able to support the weight of a quilt.
Not only are these hangers going to be wonderful for storing quilts in my home, they’re also going to be perfect for selling quilts at a craft fair. Picture a bunch of quilts hanging on their individual hangers, lined up on a clothing bar. No more digging through stacks!
If you’re interested, you can purchase these bad boys in my Etsy shop.
I’m so excited to announce that I’m hosting a quilt-along for the Positive Space pattern. I would absolutely LOVE to have you join me!
And to make this even more exciting – Pink Castle Fabrics is offering a coupon code for all participants! The code is POSITIVE15 – 15% off all purchases! It’s good from now until the end of October, mmkey doke?

I am so excited to announce my First Ever Quilt Pattern!
For those of you who have been following my blog or flickr account, you may know this quilt better as “Dusty Springfield” from the Kona Solids Challenge - or “Patti Page” from the Tangerine Tango challenge. However, I don’t think I can legally attach these lovely singers to my humble quilt pattern, so we’re going to go ahead and call it “Positive Space” from now on. Why so much focus on the negative spaces in modern quilts? Let’s focus on these little plus signs and keep positive : )
If you are interested in buying this pattern, it can be found in my etsy shop as a PDF download ($8) or as a printed pattern ($9). The pattern includes cutting charts, color images, and information for making a Throw through King sized quilt-top.
You can also purchase this very quilt from my shop.
Many, many thanks goes to the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild – and especially Brenda of Pink Castle Fabrics – for being SO encouraging about going ahead and making this pattern to sell. What an extraordinarily lucky woman I am to have this amazing group of talented, quilty friends.
So first off I’d like to tell you all that I’m going to try and sell some stuff on Etsy. My store is called “Ethel&Wayne” and will hopefully one day be a whole line of fun stuff made by me. Dare to dream!
For now the store just features one quilt, my Gate at the Lake blanket, that is very affordable, and was recently featured on a treasury ! So there’s that!
