Looking Glass Hop & Giveaway

About a month ago I posted about a pattern I tested for Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs called Looking Glass.  Cheryl’s pattern is now for sale and to celebrate the release she is hosting a Blog Hop.

Happy Quilt Front

“Happy” Baby Quilt

The pattern can be used to make any of four sizes – baby, lap, twin and queen.  I chose to make the baby size and it turned out so sweet!  The fabric is a Betty Dear charm pack for Robert Kaufman and the solid is a Bella Off White.  This was a fast finish; the longest part for me was waiting for the rain to stop and the sun to shine so I could get some pictures. 🙂

I made a few extra blocks to use on the back since I had some left over charm squares.  I love the way it looks.

Happy Quilt Back

I quilted it with wavy horizontal lines that don’t line up. I just wanted it to feel really organic. This is the first time I’ve quilted those lines and it worked up really fast.  This would be a great pattern to use if you need a quick gift of any size.  It would also be a nice pattern for a new quilter because it is so well written and easy to understand.

Quilting Detail - Happy Quilt

Now for the fun part! If you would like to win a copy of the Looking Glass pattern, I’ll be hosting a giveaway of the PDF version.  To enter, just leave a comment below letting me know if you would use scraps or a charm pack to make this quilt.  Followers of my blog can receive a second entry if you leave another comment letting me know how you follow.

I’ll keep the giveaway open through next Sunday (November 29th) and will announce the winner on Monday.

If you want to purchase your own copy, Looking Glass is available in Cheryl’s Etsy store and on Craftsy and will be on sale for $5.50 from now until December 6th.
