It’s been a long time coming but I am THRILLED to finally announce the release of my very first quilt pattern for my shop: Connector! This modern quilt pattern comes in 5 different sizes: Wall Hanging, Baby, Lap, Throw, and Bed.
Although the design for the Connector Quilt is actually inspired by tile floors, this quilt pattern got it’s name for the links it shows pulling the quilt from corner to corner. As I have had more time recently to be more introspective, I have been thinking about what it means for me to BE a connector. One of my greatest joys in life is to build bridges and to instigate partnerships & collaboration, connecting people together and building communities.
In addition, the world as a whole is in a very vulnerable place right now – separated into our individual homes. So, as I was contemplating the name for this quilt pattern, I figured this would be a reminder of the need to stay connected. I hope this pattern inspires you and makes you feel connection to the quilting community as a whole. We as a community will continue to come together through digital platforms to stay connected throughout any uncertainty that may come our way.
About the Cover Quilt
I made the cover quilt using all solids from @PBSfabrics. The colors are listed here, and I can earn a small commission if you can purchase them directly through these links:
The quilting done on the cover quilt was done by my amazing mom: Jane! Jane runs her own long arm quilting company and you can see some of her work on instagram @JaneJustSew
Navy & Neutral Pre-Cut Quilt Kits
You can get a pre-cut kit in very similar shades as the cover quilt offered through Quilt 101. The Quilt 101 kits are designed to match this version very closely, but with Art Gallery Solids instead. (due to fabric availability and supply chains, yada yada) Use code “CONNECTOR” to save 10% when you buy the kit from Quilt101.
Fat Quarter Friendly Connector Quilt
You can easily make the Connector quilt pattern using Fat Quarters or other scraps! Read about two main methods for making a scrappy Connector quilt here.
