Can I just say I feel in love again. The colors are so calming and the fabrics so inviting that I find myself drawn to exploring the design while I lay in bed. And I love seeing it when I wake up in the morning. Maybe it sounds silly but I truly do enjoy this quilt more than any others I've made. I love the colors, the fabrics and I love the extra matching pillows made from the leftover HSTs.
I also love this photo taken over the summer in the mountains.
This all leads me to something I don't usually do here on my blog. I'd like to ask you to nominate my Cascade pattern for the Craftsy Pattern Design Award?
Craftsy is sponsoring their first Pattern Design Awards and all patterns are eligible to win. Plus, if you submit a nomination, you are entered for the chance to win a free Craftsy class and they have some wonderful classes by many top notch well known quilters.
Thanks for supporting me and my little pattern shop. I'm not a big name designer nor do I try to be. I'm just a quilter who loves the process of designing and writing patterns and of course making a little $ here and there to feed my addiction. : )
In closing, I'll leave you with a this little bit of fall inspiration. Cheers.
Oh, I'd be honored to nominate Cascade for this award! It's such a beautiful quilt, Anne. I can completely understand why you're happy to look at it every day. Oh, I'll say that it suits your bedroom perfectly! Your color sense is amazing. Will you please come to my house to make my decorating colors right?ReplyDelete
I too love this quilt. I have a picture of it in my photo album to do folder and I bought the pattern several months ago when you first finished it. (I think that is when I bought it, whatever, I have it and I absolutely love it!) I also like the orange one you are showing on the back of the couch. Terrific fall quilt! I did nominate your Cascade pattern via a the link you enclosed in your post.ReplyDelete

I nominated you! I too love love love this quilt. It's like walking into a deep rich garden overflowing with the most vibrant flowers. I loved having it in my room for a while. It's calming and exciting all at once. Good luck mom and continue to be inspired by moving around the decor in the house <3ReplyDelete
Cascade is such a gorgeous quilt, Anne! I will nominate you from my computer as I am reading in feedspot, and it doesn't display any of the web links, so can't copy. It does really match your bedroom, that Chevron trunk looks really sweet! Did you make that one? Or cover it at least? I totally adore your cute Fall quilt, too!ReplyDelete
Done, I hope you win. It is a beautiful quilt.ReplyDelete
Would you mind sharing the name of the fabric you used? It looks like a Kaffe.... Thanks so much and I will definitely for you!ReplyDelete
I, too, love that outdoor shot (as well as the quilt). Put those on your calling cards!ReplyDelete
