Welcome to my blog. This is my first post, but an exciting one. I am currently in a Blog Hop with 13 great quilt designers to show you how to use the new web app, Quiltink. My friend, and business partner at Seacorner Pattern Workshop, has come up with a brilliant app to let people colour quilt patterns in a very fun way. Catalina’s newly launched Starlike quilt, was the catalyst for designing the app, and now it benefits so many designers. I had the fortune to pattern test Starlike, and it is amazing to be able to change the colours so quickly. On the app, you can choose from so many different quilt patterns to colour, from a selection of wonderful designers. My upcoming quilt pattern, Talking In Circles, is on QuiltInk as well. It is featured in Quilting Cowboy’s Look Book for his new fabric line, Leaf. I am now working on finishing up writing the pattern, and it is fun to be able to see what all the colour options are in the app. The Blog Hop ends tomorrow, but please go back and visit the other designer’s pages to see their wonderful designs.
