Slopeside giveaway and discount!



I'm so excited to announce the launch of my pattern company, Quilts for the Making, and my very first pattern, Slopeside! I hope you will love making your own version!

What I love about Slopeside

I love how bold and colorful it is and it isn't too hard to make. It uses a unique but easy construction technique that I walk you through with LOTS of diagrams. You can use either yardage or layer cake squares for the colored triangles. I love to have variety in the colors so a layer cake is a great way to get that, especially for the throw size.

I've included size options for throw, twin and queen. It will look gorgeous on a bed! I always appreciate having size options instead of having to calculate how many blocks and how much fabric I need to alter the size of a pattern.

This pattern has been thoroughly tested, too, so you can be sure that it is clearly written and accurate.







To celebrate the launch of Quilts for the Making and the Slopeside pattern, I'll be giving away a copy of the pattern and a Kona Summer 13 Ten-Square layer cake to a lucky blog commenter (US only for the layer cake). Leave me a comment to enter and I'll draw a name on July 1. 

Please make sure you are not a no-reply blogger or if you are, leave your email in the comments. If I can't reach you, I'll have to draw another name.

Everyone wins!

Get 20% off your purchase of the Slopeside pattern from now through July 12, 2014 with this coupon code: SLOPESIDE20.
