Bamboo Shoots Quilt

First, I want to thank many of you for your thoughts on my last post regarding blogs.  Lots of links to favorite sites were shared and I have some great new blogs to follow!  
I really appreciate all your support!

Today, I have some really exciting news to share.  
I have finally written up a pattern for my Bamboo Shoots quilt!

My initial quilt was made using Robert Kaufman's Quilter's Linen.  I wanted to create a very mid-century or Danish modern feel with nice clean lines. 

 I really love how the apple green and chocolate brown looked together.  
What can I say - I am a child of the seventies!

But you certainly don't need to use solids for this pattern.  Here is one I made using an eggplant marbled background and some Kaffe Fassett florals. 
So rich and colorful!

To celebrate, I have marked down all of my patterns temporarily in both my Etsy shop and Payhip Store.  I should mention that because my patterns are now sold in stores, on Tuesday the 6th, I will be increasing their price up to a standard List Price (which is more than I have been selling them for in the past).  So if there is a pattern you have been wanting, this weekend is a great time to pick them up! 

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!  
I am getting a new fence installed soon so I will be busy cutting back foliage.  
Thank goodness for the cooler weather!

  1. Yes, this quilt, in those colors, has a very Mid-Century Modern feel. I like it in both colorways!

  2. I'm with you on the 70's! The colors in the first one draw me in! Such a beautiful, clean design!


  3. Congratulations on your patterns being picked up by stores. You deserve it as you have great patterns and make wonderful quilts. I have a couple of your patterns myself. Love your inspirational site and keep blogging..... please. :)

  4. What a nice pattern. I certainly think you accomplished what you were going for with those colors. Love it! Great name too. I am trying to name my first pattern right now, it is not easy at all.

  5. Yay! That's a gorgeous quilt and so versatile - it's amazing how different it looks in the pink and purple!

  6. What a great pattern! I really like the green version, and I'm surprised at how different the purple version looks from the green. Fun!

  7. 70's chick here, too. I grew up in the 70's, married and started a family, and had a couple of serious surgeries. Lots of changes and memories. So of course, the green/brown colorway is my favorite. But the other one makes me think of the granddaughters and their so sweet girlie colors. I imagine that this is a pattern that will look great in just about any color or fabric.

  8. I love your design. The green and brown reminds me of my son's monkey/jungle nursery. I didn't think 70's until you mentioned it. It looks great in both color schemes.

  9. Love the new pattern - pretty in both colorways, but I like the green and brown the best!

  10. That is a great pattern! Looks like it would be fun to make, and so different in appearance depending on the colors chosen. I like both of the versions you showed us. Having made two of your patterns this year, I know how well written yours are!

  11. Ooh, love that design. I don't find it looks 70s. Now if it was mustard and brown... ;) Beautiful, Cynthia!

  12. This is lovely, but don't hate me when I say that I think we had some wallpaper just like the green and brown in the kitchen when I was growing up! Very retro 70s feel to it. Like the other colorway too!

  13. Beautiful pattern! I love the strong geometric design!

  14. I really like your bamboo pattern. Since I'm a huge fan of bamboo forests, so I like the first color palette better ;-)

  15. I'm a sucker for saturated colors, so I really like the second quilt. Both turned out beautifully. Congrats on the new pattern!

  16. Very pretty! The colors on the Kaffe Fassett version are lovely! I like the baptist fans on your solids version too!
