I would like to introduce Jelly Latterns, my quilt pattern for the debut pattern collection of Quilt Theory. Jelly Lanterns is a quick and easy, beginner level pattern.  The lap sized pattern is jelly roll friendly and perfect for making a quick gift for a friend or family member and use up the jelly rolls you have in your stash.

Many thanks to Karen Lewis Textile for providing the Blueberry Park for the Jelly Lantern quilt and to Aurifil for supplying the thread for the piecing and quilting.

About Quilt Theory

In February 2016, a group of quilters connected to cultivate relationships with others running businesses in the quilting industry. A tight-knit group was quickly woven together as we shared successes, answered questions, and supported one another. What started as a way to collect real-time insight and expertise quickly evolved into an opportunity to collaborate.

Our goal at Quilt Theory is to create simple and modern quilt patterns, and we challenged ourselves to design a line of patterns printed on small cards. As a group, we have become a strong team as we worked through pattern writing, testing, editing, and quilting.

Quilt Theory designers have been featured in 20+ major quilting publications and international quilt exhibits. Combined, we have 47 years of quilting experience, and we are excited to share our debut collection for Fall 2016.

Each Quilt Theory design is simple to execute, yet engaging enough for advanced quilters. Our eye-catching designs bring new life to traditional quilt methods and aim to inspire.

To get more details about the debut Quilt Theory pattern collection, be sure to follow along with the Release Blog Hop Schedule!
