Craftsy Pattern Designer Awards

I recently did some serious and much needed tidying up around the house and refreshed the decor for the fall season. I like to use quilts as part of my decorating and actually hang many of them here and there.  But one quilt I've never used in the house is Cascade . . . my all time favorite. It's been primarily used by my daughter, but is home right now, so I decided to hang it on my bedroom wall. It's not a fall quilt by any means but it fits my bedroom perfectly.

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. All you need to do is go here and enter this URL for my Cascade pattern. You can also go here to learn more about the contest. Heck I'll even shamelessly invite you to tell you friends and they might win a free class too.

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.
