I have received a lot of enquiries over the years requesting me to sell my original quilt patterns.
The first pattern I have chosen to release is called the "Gold Rush Sampler". This quilt features twelve machine pieced classic sampler blocks set on point. The blocks are embellished with optional hand applique circles and leaf shapes. I think the applique creates an added round dimension to the straight lines of the machine piecing.
Each of the sampler blocks are set on point and surrounded by a small sashing strip. The corners are set with four pieced triangles which frame each block and make it a larger square unit. The blocks are then sashed and cornerstone squares are added between the sashing strips. A final wider border completes the quilt.
The "Gold Rush Sampler" is a bed sized quilt, measuring 73" x 93".
I have made the quilt in two completely different colourways: a red and gold version with brown and blue accents and a blue, pink and brown version. Of course, my favourite fabrics are in a reproduction style but the two versions show the versatility of the design. The quilt would also look great in many other colour schemes as well such as brights, batiks or black, white and red.
Here is my red and gold version of the "Gold Rush Sampler":
Here is my other version in blue, pink and brown:
I hope you will enjoy this pattern and I do intend to upload more patterns for sale in the future. Please spread the word and let me know what you think! K x
