It's Official!!!

I am now, officially, a published designer!

Meet:  "When in Rome"







































I FINALLY managed to get some respite from the weather in order to get some photos taken.  This little baby has been in the works for quite some time, and the photos have been holding us up for the last 2 months.  All in all I am so proud of this.  To see something come together from start to finish is humbling, and a constant trial in motivation. 

Thankfully I didn't have to do it alone.  My dear friend Justine not only helped test the pattern, but she helped motivate me to move forward on this project.  Thanks a million Justine!  Also, Justine's husband Nate deserves credit for the name.  :)  Thanks Nate!

Justine's beautiful version of "When in Rome"
















This pattern works great with scrap 5" charm squares or with charm packs.  However, the most important part is the focus fabric.  This is great for that fabric that you love, but you'd hate to see cut into tiny pieces.




This pattern can be purchased here:(Craftsy)

or here:  (Etsy)














I hope you love it as much as I do, and I can't wait to get working on the next one!!!

    3. Oops. He's a bit younger I think. I found your blog from the posting on the Flickr site and followed the bread crumbs to here. I just knew anything with a mitten could only be Michigan related. Your last name and Holt are synonymous!

  3. Congrats on being published! Awesome. The quilt is beautiful, and what a terrific way to highlight that "special" fabric... Those pieces pop up for me from time to time and I just really hate to see them "blended" into the other prints!

    1. Thank you so much! I know exactly what you mean. I'm always drawn to large prints, but I'm afraid to cut them too small because I don't want to lose the design. :)
