New pattern: Peacocks on Parade

Peacocks on Parade pattern covers

The past week has been a flurry of trips to the printer and putting finishing touches on the page layouts, and now I’m thrilled to announce my newest Feed Dog Designs pattern—Peacocks on Parade!

Peacocks on Parade version A

The pattern turns traditional Dresden Fans into flashy peacocks marching proudly around the quilt. If you’ve been following the Mother’s blog, you might have seen a preview of the version she made in different fabrics (thanks Mom!)…

Peacocks on Parade version B

We both agreed that it was great fun picking fabrics for the dots on the feathers—fussy-cutting flowers, starbursts, and other round motifs to highlight.

The pattern will be available to quilt shops and for online download shortly, but if you’re in Northern California, it’s debuting right now at Sew Many Quilts in Tracy, during the Jingle Bell Shop Hop—check out both sample quilts in person and get the pattern before it’s available anywhere else! The shop is also hosting a trunk show of quilts from my other patterns as well as from the current and previous issues of Stitch. And if you want to chat in person or have a pattern signed, I’ll be at the store on Saturday, November 5 from 12:00 to 3:00. I’d love to meet you, and you’ll love the shop!
