It’s here! Grab your red Solo cups and snag your copy of the House Party quilt pattern in the shop! Two layouts (including scrappy) are included!
In the middle of our hectic move from England to Alabama, the inspiration for House Party hit me! I wanted a design that was quick, easy, and allowed me to showcase fabrics with larger prints. Now you’re probably thinking, “Great idea! But I’m still confused about the ‘house party’ name”. Well, let me tell you! I got to thinking about old boomboxes and I combined the ‘Play’ button and ‘Stop’ button shapes to make the houses and the ‘Pause’ button made sense to stick below the house. Hence, House Party!
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Whatnot fabrics a tad early from Rashida Coleman-Hale for Ruby Star Society and used that collection for my first version. The colors give such a fun vibe and the blocks were big enough to show off a bunch of Rashida’s illustrations.
My next version was a Halloween House Party! Lot of fun colors that aren’t my normal go-to colors but looked stunning and modern in the quilt pattern!
It’s currently at the longarmer’s waiting to be completed so I’ll update this post when it arrives with the spiderweb panto I chose for the quilting! The fabrics are part of Art Gallery’s Spooky ‘n Sweet collection paired with their Pure Solids.
And finally let me introduce you to my scrappy House Party! This layout is FQ and 1/4 yard friendly!
Such colorful and bold colors! I have to give a huge thanks to FabricBubb for helping pick out the perfect colors!
