Hey all! I just wanted to let you know that the pattern for my quilt Adorela (formerly known as The Orla) is now available for download on the Robert Kaufman site.
This was designed using Kona solids and all of the amounts and color names are listed in the pattern. It also is compatible with the Accuquilt 7″ Drunkard’s Path Die for easy cutting (though templates are also provided!). The finished quilt measures 50″ x 60″ and is my homage to the amazing designs of the epic Orla Kiely.
This is a great block that makes use of my technique of one pin curved sewing and trimming for disappearing seams. I explore both of these techniques at length in my book, A Quilter’s Mixology and my DVD on Curved Piecing…so for more tips check out those resources.
And just as a teaser, I also made myself a scrappy background version. (though the directions are not currently available for that, it can be done!)
So go check out the pattern at Robert Kaufman and make one of your own today! Who doesn’t love a free pattern?!
