I am excited about the new Morning Glory Designs patterns that will be in shops this summer, featuring a new Christmas collection from Northcott called Old Time Christmas.
The patterns are done and on their way to the printers. They will ship in April and go to shops in May, if all goes as scheduled. Yea right! Hahaha If you want a jump on them, I will be putting them up on my website as digital download patterns next week.
There are two patterns. The first is called Celebrations Table Topper and is super simple. It measures 50 x 50, a perfect size for a dining table. It uses a tree skirt panel appliqued to a big square of background fabric! Add a border and you are done.

The second pattern is actually THREE patterns in one! Celebrations Table Trio. Yup, this one is a great value. It is a set of 2 placemats with a matching table runner (20 x 48).

The pattern is paper pieced to make it easy and accurate featuring blocks on point. On-point blocks often have fractional measurements which are difficult to cut, so piecing with foundations makes them perfectly accurate every time. The ribbon print borders are a stripe printed on the diagonal so cutting rectangles is easy- no bias edges!
I even added a bonus 6" mug rug pattern to go with the set. Isn't it cute? This set will make a great Christmas or Holiday gift for friends or family. Watch for the Northcott Old Time Christmas collection in shops this summer.
The mug rug would make a great class project for shops. It could be completed in one class session, incorporating foundation piecing and directional cutting.
Beach Dreams Block of the Month
I just finished printing Block #3 for Beach Dreams! WOW this is a BIG pattern. 21 pages! But they are printed, bagged and ready to go out to subscribers.
The pattern is big because the blocks are big! The palm trees in Block 3 are 14" x 25". They are almost big enough to plant outside!
It is not too late to purchase Beach Dreams Block of the Month or Beach Dreams Fabric Kits (which include full color patterns and postage).

One More New Pattern
I just heard from Northcott who approved another new pattern. The fabric is a Southwest fabric collection called Stonehenge Sun Valley. Their Stonehenge SW collections have been popular in the past and always sell out. So I am excited to see a new collection coming.
I will be writing this pattern, but it needs a name. I would love some suggestions. Normally my pattern naming mojo works well but I could use your help on this one. This is a lap quilt 56 x 56 with a bonus wall hanging version in the same pattern. It would also make a great table topper if you have SW decor.
Leave a suggestions in the comments.
If I choose your suggestion you will get the pattern for free when it is ready to release!
Thanks for taking a look!
