Thoroughly Modern Lily Quilt Pattern!

The Thoroughly Modern Lily pattern is now available at Craftsy!  It's pretty exciting to be able to say that at last!  I do hope you will check it out.
Thoroughly Modern Lily
Special thanks and heartfelt gratitude to Sandi of piecemealquilts.com, whose skills and talents were an integral part of this quilt.  It all started with a kind comment, a generous gesture and email exchange, resulting in a beautiful quilt and pattern!


I hope that during the past couple weeks, many of you have had a chance to explore the tutorial for the Four-Lily block that forms the basis of this quilt.  The block tutorial will remain available here as an adjunct to the quilt pattern.  You can find the four-part tutorial anytime under the Tutorials tab at the top of the page. 

Whether you've made just one block or the whole quilt, I look forward to your comments, questions, and photos here, by email, or on the Craftsy pattern site.

Lastly, just for fun, here are a few outtakes from the quilt photo shoot last month.  Daughter M. and her boyfriend, Nick, were my assistants and chief quilt holder-uppers.  They had no idea when they visited on Mother's Day that I would put them to work, but I really appreciated their help.


It was a breezy day, so they held onto the edges of the quilt through the fence with their fingertips.  Right before I snapped the picture, I'd yell, "Hide your fingers!" As ridiculous as that sounds, I'm sure there was giggling and eye-rolling behind the fence.


Of course, the wind did its thing anyway.  I've got about a dozen more photos just like these.


Thanks to all for your encouragement and support during this process.  I am looking forward to getting my hands busy on some new things, finishing up some old, and hopefully blogging a bit more regularly again as well.
