Looking Glass Pattern Release and Blog Hop

I am happy to introduce the Looking Glass Pattern and Blog Hop today!  The pattern is very charm pack and layer cake friendly and contains instructions for baby, lap, twin, and queen sized quilts.



I had 7 wonderful women test and review the pattern for me and I am so grateful for them. To celebrate all of their wonderful versions of Looking Glass we are going to have a little Blog Hop.  Here is the schedule of the hop:


Friday November 21st: Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs  <-- me

Saturday November 22nd: Lin @ Lin's Quilts

Sunday November 23rd: Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts

Monday November 24th: Michelle @ From Bolt to Beauty

Monday November 24th: Anna @ Fresh Dew Drops

Tuesday November 25th: Chelsea @ Patch the Giraffe

Wednesday November 26th: Shauna @ Shauna's World

Friday November 28th: Shelley @ The Carpenter's Daughter Who Quilts

There will be a chance to win a digital copy of Looking Glass at each stop :)  (Note: If you purchase the pattern and then will another copy, I will refund your purchase price.) 

My original version was the baby sized quilt using the Into the Woods collection by Lella Boutique for Moda.  





For the hop, I made a second version, the lap size using some of the red and pink prints from the Greenfield Hill collection by Densye Schmidt for Free Spirit. These fabrics were from my local quilt guild and this quilt will be going to our guild's charity.  I did not have enough of the prints so I added in some Kona ash and coal.
  


I quilted the white areas in a figure 8 design and added some feathers and swirls to the print areas because I just took a feathers class and was looking for an excuse to practice them.


To introduce Looking Glass, the pattern will be available in my Etsy shop and Craftsy shop for $5.50 for 2 weeks (through Monday Friday December 5th) before it goes up to its regular price.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy all of the reviews versions over the next week!

If you decide to make anything from a Meadow Mist Designs pattern or tutorial, I hope you will consider adding it to the Meadow Mist Designs flickr group and/or use the hashtag #MeadowMistDesigns when sharing on Instagram.
