New Pattern: The Glow Stick Quilt


I am over the moon excited to share my newest quilt pattern with you:

Glow Stick Quilt by Cristy Fincher

This pattern has been over a year in the making, and it's finally ready for YOU!

Designing it has been fun, challenging, exciting and educational. The alternating squares twist and weave throughout the quilt, giving it a truly unique look. The color options are endless! I've included two sizes for you: a 53" lap quilt and a 21.5" mini quilt. But you don't have to stop there! You can easily add or remove blocks to make a quilt that's all you. 

The quilt pattern includes coloring pages to help you plan your design and flow of colors. It also includes a simple color coding system to help you keep organized so that your colors end up exactly where you want them.

The detailed pictures and graphic illustrations will walk you through the instructions, step-by-step. Your piecing skills will grow and "glow" as you learn to make half rectangle triangles and learn tips and tricks to help reduce bulky seams.

As a special bonus, I've included paper piecing templates for you! If "traditional" piecing isn't your thing, but you enjoy paper piecing, then the Paper Piecing Add-on will be perfect for you! 

Glow Stick is now available in my shop. You can order it as a Printed Booklet with a download of the Paper Piecing Add-on PDF, or as a download of both in PDF format.

I hope you have a lot of fun making your own Glow Stick Quilt. Share your progress on social media with the hashtag #GlowStickQuilt!

Happy Quilting,

You have mastered color theory with this fabulous complement quilt. Simple yet mesmerizing. Seeing this was what nudged me to begin instagraming. I am inspired! Thanks Cristy! ps, loved reading about you in QuiltFolk.

YAY! So excited this pattern is out. I can hardly wait to get started. The hardest part is going to be fabric selection. SOOOOO many choices.

This quilt is singing to me. I love the way one block peeps out and says ‘here I am’. I could see it as one block and 60" square. It would just glow with colour. Thanks for all your effort in designing quilts for us.
