As you may recall, back in October I started doing Inktober and I’m willing to admit I failed miserably. Between trying to release the Pegasus pattern and other obligations it was just too much. It came to a screeching halt when I decided to take a weekend off to get myself together and then never started up again. Anyway, here are the drawings I did finish! There are many!

Day 8: Mollusc + Male Shark (more…)

On a whim, I decided to do Inktober this year. For those unfamiliar, it is a casually-organised event throughout the month of October when participating artists draw something every day in ink. There are some official prompts that can be used for ideas, but I found them a little lame so I’ve opted to combine two unofficial prompt lists, Oddinkies by Haitchbee and Anthroinktober by Drop the Drawing.



I’m posting my daily progress on my Tumblr page, but I thought I’d do a weekly recap here like I did for Block a Day July way back when. On to last week’s drawings!


Laurels detail

As you know, I get pretty excited about all my patterns, but I am extra excited about sharing this one with you today.  It’s called Laurels and as you can see, it’s a set of two laurels you can sew together into a wreath, or you can use them as a border for your other blocks!  One of my goals with my patterns is to have designs that work together in a modular way so you can mix and match them to create a quilt that is uniquely yours without too much fuss over planning the design or doing math or anything like that.  I hope you will enjoy combing Laurels in creative ways with other patterns in your stash!


To make the Laurels pattern as versatile as possible, I’ve made them up in three sizes for you, 12″, 16″, and 18″.  Each individual laurel is half the height, so the 12″ laurels are 6″ wide, etc.  In the pattern shop, you’ll see I’ve got them all available separately so you can purchase just the one you need now, or there’s a multipack with all three sizes so you’ll have those in your pattern library right when you need them!
