Super Squash Blossom in Jump, Ride, Spin fabrics

Super Squash Blossom in Jump, Ride, Spin fabrics

I’m excited to share some new things with you today! My friend, Tracey Wirth, has a new line called Jump, Ride, Spin with Paintbrush Studios Fabrics and it is adorable! The prints are fun, cute and come in great colors – fresh hues of yellow, orange, green, pink, blue and gray. They are so versatile and are perfect for all kinds of project. Naturally, though, I made a quilt!

I made a baby size of my newest pattern, Super Squash Blossom. These oversized blocks come together quickly and work well in large and small scale prints like the ones in Tracey’s line. I decided to to use the gray, orange and yellow colorway and backed it with a nice aqua solid. They really pop against the white background!

It’s been a longtime dream of Tracey’s to design fabric and I couldn’t be more thrilled to see it become a reality! Her fabrics are whimsical and fresh and would be good for so many projects. You can see more ideas of how to use them on the Paintbrush Studios Blog. The pattern for my quilt, Super Squash Blossom, is available in my shop. Take 25 % off through Sunday, December 9th with the code JUMPRIDESPIN.
