Bugged Out


I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. Matthew and I were in San Diego doing a holiday art show. So we are having Thanksgiving this Sunday. That's what is so great about this holiday, it is truly about family and friends. There is little commercialism about it since stores start to decorate for Christmas right after Halloween. So if you cannot celebrate on the assigned day, you just pick another day. I cannot wait for my turkey and pumpkin pie this weekend!!!!! And seeing how Matthew is an amazing chef, our family and friends did not mind waiting either! :)

I wanted to post another free pattern I recently did called Bugged Out. This past summer I went to visit my 4 year old niece in Atlanta. We went to this nickle and dime store (yes, they still has some of these) and I offered to buy her one thing. There were so many toys but she focused on this little bug cage. It was so cute. So when I came home and found this "Bugged Out" fabrics from Blank quilting waiting for me and they requested a free pattern for the collection, I was so excited.

I designed the quilt with this little bug cage in mind and alternated the blocks with the iconic "Bug Jar" blocks. It took me a couple of hours to piece this great throw and you can use any bug fabrics for the cages and jars. I know it is perfect for any boy or girl.  PLEASE NOTE: The Whimsical Workshop does not have this fabric in stock. I just thought this pattern was too cute not to share. The fabrics are from the "Bugged Out" collection from Blank quilting and can be ordered from fellow E-merchant  These guys have a great website for all things bugs and I just love their whimsical spirit!

Happy Creating,
