PATTERN DETAILS

I had pictured this quilt, my 2016 "January Jumpstart" group project, to end up looking very modern, having required participants to use modern prints and low volume backgrounds in their blocks. To my great surprise, the amazing setting I fell into had a rather unexpectedly vintage vibe, and lead to the name Vinnie (vintage) Loves Maude (modern). And they really do. This swap is probably my favorite quilt pattern so far made from these group projects. The combination of modern prints and low volume backgrounds that the participants put together so amazingly well and the sweetness of the block were so much fun to work with, and when I came up with the cover layout, my life felt complete. When I write you a pattern, I like to give you as many options as possible to allow you to use it again and again, and with the help of my testers, this one delivers options galore. Use scraps, use yardage...piece the spacer blocks or don't....make your blocks in one of two different size options...play with several layouts....even create your own layout! The blocks just might speak to you like they did to my testers. I won't lie, there are some small pieces involved in the smaller sized blocks, but using a tool like Clearly Perfect Angles makes things go smoothly. Want some online company?

I probably started sewing as a measure of self defense; if my mom was busy teaching me about 5/8" seams and casings for elastics, there was no way she could whip up yet another set of matching floor length gowns for my sister and I to wear while posing for photos at the local Sears photo studio. While my mom sewed all manner of things, quilts were never one of them. I discovered quilting on my own in 1995, and like most new quilters, my first can be considered a horrific monstrosity. Several years and much more talent later, I started to design my own patterns, and in 2005 launched EvaPaige Quilt Designs. My design style is one of "fun over fuss", and I unapologetically preach the gospel of "Perfection is Overrated" through my trunk show and on my Quilting Hottie Haven blog. Quilting isn't mean to be hard or frustrating, and with every pattern I try to help the user focus on enjoying the creative process rather than becoming annoyed by too many matching points and seams. I tend to shy away from trends; I design what I love and have a hard time conforming to what's hot in the quilting world. Other than me, of course. On a more personal note, my husband and I have three young daughters, twins Eva and Paige, my mini-mes and company namesakes, and Greta, who will likely be in therapy because her name only appears on a pattern, not as part of the true EPQD empire. We live in a pretty town northwest of Boston MA that I promise you have never heard of and where you don't even need a clear day to see New Hampshire, where all five of us pretty much live our lives covered in thread scraps.
