If you're familiar with my work, you'd know that blue is my favorite color. I love every shade - from navy to aqua! So when Jessica Levitt asked me to make some samples for Fall Market with her new line Cascade, I was super excited! Plus, I was already a fan of her work - Timber & Kingdom are great lines too.
So check it out.... There are 2 color ways. Of course, I love the blues, but I'm also loving the other colors she added. I think I might need some serious yardage of Splash in Fog ( the 3rd one from the top!) I can see myself using it in a ton of upcoming projects.
Are you ready to see what I made?!?!
This is my Travel Purse. It's a pattern that I have been working off and on for the past year. My inspiration for this purse was my mother's Louis Vuitton purse. She's had this purse as long as I can remember. Ever since I was little. I wanted to make it the same shape but also make it fully functional by adding pockets on the sides. I also made the straps long enough so that it can be placed on your shoulder. The entire bag is all patchwork - 2" squares, quilted and fully lined. This one I made for Jessica is definitely the best one yet! I'm happy to say that the pattern will available for sale early next year.
I also made Jessica a little selvage pouch. Where else is she going to put her make up?!?! It matches her bag and it has her name all over it = so no one can steal it! ;)
Here's a tutorial on how you can make one.
Last but not least, here's a pillow I made. The pattern is one that I created called "Waves". I couldn't resist making "Waves" with Cascade. I had to play on the whole water theme.... It's made mostly of strips and is a great scrapbusting pattern. I made this pillow last because I knew there would be many usable pieces from the other projects.
It was quilted with what I call 'lazy diamonds' = Staight lines + Diagonal lines = diamonds on a slant. It looks like they're lying down, hence the name 'lazy diamonds'. This pattern will be available for sale as a quilt pattern in Spring 2015.
There are more Cascade projects in her look book! And they're all amazing!

An unlimited amount of time? As long as I also had an unlimited amount of energy, I would make a cathedral windows quilt for our king-sized bed. By hand.ReplyDelete
I follow you on Instagram, where I am wordygirl11.
If I had an unlimited amount of time today (like before my guild meeting tonight), I would finish all of block of the month stars. Then I would bind my show and share quilt. After that I would make my bingo cards so I can join in the games tonight. With my remaining unlimited time (ha), I would work on some WIPs and brainstorm a quilt for my baby girl (coming in December) .ReplyDelete

Jenn, I'm now following by email. I'm so inspired by your posts already. Loving the selvage purse. You're right who could steal that w/Jessica's name all over it ha ha.ReplyDelete
Jenn with unlimited time I would finally make a queen or king size quilt for MY bed. Or convert it to hang on a large wall that is totally baren. I love making bags and pouches too so that's one way to be kind to others is make 'em a little something to carry their stuff . Paying forward just feels so good, everyday.ReplyDelete
If I had unlimited time, I would be quilting everyday! I am new to this and I love it . I have not ventured into making anything other than quilts so far, your travel bag is really nice ! I follow you on everywhere now and also by email ! thanks !ReplyDelete
I am a follower! Hmm, I've been intrigued by those Millifiori quilts. I wonder how long it really takes to make one of those.ReplyDelete
I have four quilts in progress. I think I would finish them all (and then promptly start four more!)ReplyDelete
I would make a huge King bed coverlet. I keep putting off working on something so big because the quilting part scares me.ReplyDelete
I would make a king sized quilt if I have an unlimited amount of time!ReplyDelete
Great job on these projects, I saw them in person at quilt market. I especially am after the pattern for your Louis Vutton impersonation tote! I can't find it anywhere. Is it coming out soon?ReplyDelete
