Board and Batten Pattern Release

It's pattern release day for Board & Batten!  I am very excited to time this launch with my Thanksgiving Sale (see below for details).  The Board and Batten quilt along will kick off in the new year! 



Board and Batten is a super fun and quick pattern based on half square triangles to make a modern herringbone-like design. 

The pattern is perfect for your pre-cuts or scraps you have in your sewing room being charm pack, layer cake, fat quarter bundle, and scrap friendly.  

Board and Batten contains instructions for baby, throw, twin, and queen sizes.

If you love half square triangles (HST), then this quilt is for you!  And we are going to have a super fun quilt along kicking off on January 5th.

FABRICS & MATERIALS

For my cover version of Board & Batten I used a variety of Bella Solids in blues, turquoises, and limes against a background of Feather.  I love the scrappy goodness. 


I used my favorite Warm & White batting by the Warm Company and light cream 50 wt Aurifil thread for the quilting.  

For the quilt along, I am planning on using Honey by Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society along with a Bella Navy background.  

I will be sharing a bunch of additional renderings and kit options for the pattern on Black Friday (so you can take advantage of the fabric sales if you would like).





ABOUT THE QUILTING

I wanted to pick a quilting design that added texture but did not away from the piecing or bright prints.  When I have a quilt design that is in a grid, I try to see if I can use the grid (to minimize any marking that needs to be done).  For this quilt I used a cursive "ele" in each block.

I will be posting (including a short video) on how I quilted this quilt on Wednesday (11/23).





PATTERN DETAILS

Board and Batten is beginner friendly and contains baby, throw, twin, and queen sizes.  The pattern is pre-cut and scrap friendly with instructions for using charm packs, layer cakes, fat quarters, and scraps.







Once you make a Board and Batten quilt of your own, you can share it via social media using the hashtag #BoardandBattenQuilt and #BoardandBattenQAL during the quilt along.

In both my pattern shop (digital and print versions) and Etsy (digital version), during my Thanksgiving Sale, you can buy two patterns and get one free.





MANY THANKS

I would like to thank Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl for her amazing tech editing skills.  I would also like to thank the Warm Company for the Warm & White batting (my favorite!), and Aurifil for the thread.
