Today I am thrilled to share a quilt that will be displayed at Quilt Market this year. Whenever Carrie Bloomston asks me to work with one of her fabric collections, I can't resist. This year, Carrie is releasing a new line called Dreamer (with Windham Fabrics) and, after one peek at the beautiful prints -- the bees and the feathers, in particular -- I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

To showcase the prints, I made a large, square quilt from four oversized log cabin blocks. A nice, easy, meditative pattern that produces a big, comfy quilt is my favorite formula. Interested in a free pattern for this one? If there's interest, I'd be happy to type it up and post it here on the blog.

Carrie assembled an amazing team of talented sewists to make a variety of projects that unleash the potential of the collection. You can see them all in the Dreamer look book.

From Carrie's blog post, here is a description in her words of this beautiful new collection:
This sweet, fresh, bohemian collection is filled with layered patterns I made both with my typical collage technique and by hand-painted watercolor. This collection is a love song to the earth and to our ancestors around the globe who were MAKERS and who lived in harmony with nature.
