From Pam Washburn who said: “Just wanted to show you that I finally completed the Unicorn quilt. I bought the pattern from you when you came to the Wichita quilt guild. My granddaughter Harper turned 6 this May and she loved the quilt. Thanks so much.”
I love it and am so happy that you shared it with us! Your granddaughter will treasure this quilt all her life. Well done!
The Magical Unicorn pattern is scheduled for release in August – yay!!! I’ve already had requests for kits and I’m working on it but I need to know what sort of kit you would like.
There are two block sizes in the pattern (35″ x 35″ and 50″ x 50″). This quilt has the 35″ x 35″ block and 5″ wide borders making the finished quilt 45″ x 45″. The block is constructed on a white base layer that can be cut away after the shapes are sewn down. I machine appliquéd my quilt but you could hand appliqué if you prefer.
If I was buying a kit for this quilt, I would want larger pieces of fabric to work from. There would be fat quarters plus other pieces both bigger and smaller. These cuts would be big enough to allow for shrinkage for those (like me) who always prewash. There would be leftover fabric because of the scrappy nature of this quilt.
The unicorn and flower appliqué shapes could come as fabric pieces OR they could be laser-cut and ready to fuse. The downside to fusing is that the base layer cannot be cut away and the quilt will be a bit heavier.
So my question to you is, what kind of Magical Unicorn kit would you buy? I thank you in advance for letting me know your thoughts.
