A New Pattern; A Roll of the Dice

Sandra Walker from MMM Quilts has a fun new pattern being introduced this week and anyone who knows me, knows that I love Sandra’s patterns!

This is a great pattern and includes 3 projects; a Baby Quilt, a Bed Runner and a Pillow.

A few of us were given the privilege of making projects from this pattern which is full of Sandra’s usual tips and suggestions for tutorials. This is an official DrEAMi project for me this month because I put everything else aside to enjoy making this sweet flimsy.

I chose to make a baby quilt since I had been asked by my granddaughter to make a quilt for one of her friends.

Fabrics were chosen to match the jungle mural that the Mom had had painted for the nursery wall. I had some perfect batiks that I just knew would work.

Cutting and piecing went very well, thanks to Sandra’s well written pattern and before I knew it I had a finished flimsy. 😁

I finished the quilt top and went hunting to find a perfect backing.

Aren’t those tripes perfect for jungle and rivers?

I was at the studio and finished another quilt and got this sweet little quilt on the frame. Then disaster struck and my Avante started being temperamental. I finally had to give up and call my favourite tech to tell him what was going on. He said my machine needed a spa trip so I wasn’t able to get it quilted.

Here it is; unfinished but Oh! so Sweet!

Now it is set aside with backing and binding for the parts to come in for my longarm and then a trip to the studio.

This pattern was also used by some other quilters to make different projects:

You really should go take a peek at everyone’s interpretation of Sandra’s pattern. The fabric choices sure made me smile and want to make more of the projects in this pattern.

I’d like to thank Sandra of MMM Quilts for letting me be part of the group that were able to play with her pattern in advance of it being released.

Here is the direct link to the pattern for your convenience and I happen to know it’s on sale this week 😉

Again here is a photo of this fun new pattern with a direct link embedded to the pattern, which I can admit to wanting to make more of the projects. I’m thinking a bed runner and some cushions just might be on my wish list. 😉

Thank you for spending some time with me. 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Carol your quilt is just beautiful, so calm and tranquil in those gorgeous batiks. The backing is perfect, as Wendy says. Darn, it’s too bad your Avanté decided it was time for a spa trip. Thank you so much for playing with my new design and for saying such kind things about it!

    1. Hi Sandra. Isn’t it just the way life goes; machines break down when you need them most 🤔 I enjoyed this pattern as much as I’ve enjoyed all of your designs. There’s just something about stars that makes me happy. 😄


  2. Hi Carol! Great job on the baby quilt. I love the fabrics you chose and that backing is just perfect!! I’ve already purchased the pattern after seeing Rose’s project. I absolutely NEED to make something right.this.minute. Work is interrupting my creativeness. HAHA! {{Hugs}} a bunch. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. Isn’t this pattern just the best! When I saw it it became my Drop Everything and Make it. Just think the busyness of work should settle down for you soon and then you will want to play with fabric more 😉
