Introducing, Majestic!

My latest collection is HERE! 

I am so excited for this collection and the new patterns releasing with it! Majestic brings together a bold navy, soft pinks, and a lovely grey as its main color palette. It includes my classic floral designs as well as lots of muted options to give a great variety to the collection.

First and foremost: DON'T let the designs intimidate you! 

Each of the 4 designs are constructed using my 6 BASIC quilting elements of Half Square Triangle, Quick Angled Rectangle, Flying Geese, Snowball Block, Square-in-a-Square and a Triangle-in-a-Square.
