The 50th pattern

Dotty Throw quilt pattern by Amanda Jane Textiles

This is a celebration! There are now 50 quilt and sewing patterns in my Etsy shop. Whoop, whoop! I’d like to tell you about the ones that have been added most recently and then offer you a special discount on any – or all! – of the fifty.

This is an addition to the ‘Quick Makes’ series. It is a pattern to make a simple zip-up bag, which includes instructions for putting in a zip. I use my bag to keep my crochet hooks in (it’s a perfect size for that), but you can adapt the pattern to make other shaped bags, for example a long one for knitting needles. Or re-shape it for any purpose you please.

There’s also a pattern for a zip-up cushion cover (there’s already a pattern for a cover with a button fastening in the shop). This is different method of inserting a zip to the one in the pattern above. The sample cushion cover seen in the photo uses one of my favourite fabric designs (Abstract Watercolour), which was indeed based on an original watercolour painting.

There is also a pattern for a large, square quilt, ‘Dotty Throw’, which would work well as either as a throw or as a big playmat. The design plays with polka-dots of all kinds. There are spotty fabrics all through the quilt, varying from large white dots to tiny all-over spots in fabrics of blue and bright green, with some contrasting white.

Finally, there is a playful, cheery children’s quilt called ‘Sunny Squares’, because the engaging conversational prints at the heart of each block are framed by oranges and yellows.

And that makes fifty! You can find all the remaining 46 patterns, plus these four in my Etsy shop Amanda Jane Textiles.
