Chopsticks in Cascade for Quilt Market



I was so honored and excited to be selected by Jessica Levitt, to make something with her new line of fabric for her booth at Quilt Market!



Her new line is called Cascade, and is distributed through Windham Fabrics. The line features some large focal prints, and a variety of medium and small prints. My favorites are the raindrops, and the prints that look like falling rain - that one is a great blender!




 I made the Chopsticks Quilt, by Julie Herman, at Jaybird Quilts, which is a great pattern to use to show off large scale prints. The amazing quilting was done by Angela Walters, and there are, of course, some really neat details in the quilting.






















I also made the Rock Candy Table Topper, and the Seaside Table Runner, both by Julie Herman as well. I have to say, I'm not one keen on having a million rulers, but Julie's rulers are awesome! I cannot wait to use them for other projects! Both of these use the Sidekick Ruler, which is super easy to use, the lines are easy to see, and Julie's directions are very clear.





I quilted both of these myself, and I was really pleased at how well they turned out!

All of these lovely pictures are courtesy of Jessica - aren't those with the quilt by the waterfall amazing?
