Here are some photos--front of the quilt:

The back (directions for this pieced back are included in the pattern):
I did the first diagrams and fabric calculations for this one while I watched the very last episode of Lost on tv last spring. :)
I gave Amy the quilt for Christmas last year and after thinking about it for a while, I decided to submit it to some magazines for publication. I sent my submission to just one magazine... and they never emailed me back. Then I decided that actually I wanted to write up the pattern and sell it on my own. I got out the original drawings and figures and decided to make the pattern in two sizes. I drafted a baby quilt size and decided on a color scheme using mostly Kumari Garden fabrics by Dena Designs. Here's the finished quilt:
The ruffle strips in this quilt are Moda Grunge in the color "Decadent," and the charm squares came from my stash. All other fabrics are from the Kumari Garden line. This quilt is about 40" x 53".
Here are some details on the pattern:
*It's available in my shop and is on sale for $8.50 until June 27, 2011 (next Monday). After that the price will be $10.
*The pattern includes directions for two sizes—baby quilt (40” x 53”) and throw quilt (50” x 70”).
*This pattern is a 27-page PDF file that includes lots of photos, cutting and layout diagrams, and two suggested backing options for the larger quilt size.
*Three tutorials are included with the pattern—Detailed Gathering Instructions, Straightening Fabric Edges, and Matching Large Scale Prints.
The fabric requirements for both sizes of the quilt are available in the pattern description over at the shop.
Finally I'd like to thank Katrina Coleman, who took the photographs of the Kumari Garden Ruffle Crush quilt. She is a local friend who's just getting her photography business started and I will let you all know as soon as her website is ready!
