Happy Monday! It’s a happy one for me indeed, because I’ve got another pattern to release to you all! And as usual, I’m offering Gridlock as a PDF downloadon sale for just $4.99 in the first week of release (that’s almost 40% off the normal price). (This sale is now done.)
This is the third in my continuing series of simple, beginner-friendly paper-piecing patterns (Cartwheels and Wavelength are perfect for beginning paper-piecers as well). So if you’ve tried paper-piecing, but don’t feel quite up to the really intricate patterns yet, you can definitely handle this one! Gridlock is basically a string quilt, although it’s a bit more of a modern, geometric take on that concept.
This quilt would also be amazeballs in solids. Can somebody make this quilt in solids, please? : ) I think it has so much potential for fun color schemes. Other print choices could make a huge impact too.
My version was quilted by the amazing and talented Lisa Sipes—she did a slightly different design in each of the rows, and it turned out really fun. The back is just a solid—Art Gallery Pure Elements in Cozumel Blue, to be exact—but I’m so happy that it is, because it really shows Lisa’s quilting to great advantage. It’s gorgeous!
