Up next for my new releases is my Austin House pattern. It debuted at QuiltCon this year in one of my classes. In the class, I walked students through the design process from initial idea, site visits and exploration to finished project. It was really fun. The idea was to take inspiration from some of the hip houses in Austin, and the result is a series that I hope folks who enjoy modern house forms can appreciate.
This pattern is new to my paper-piecing series. It’s great for beginners, goes together fairly quickly and is the perfect platform for mixing and matching different fabrics. Because of its size and playful use of fabric, I’ve already made a few of these and given them to friends as a gift. Most of the fabric requirements are in easy increments to make that part super easy too.
My very red/orange version…
In my most recent version, I got the bright idea to use some swiss dots (my new favorite!) for the binding. This will definitely be happening again. So nice.
