FIVE Fabulous New Patterns from It's Sew Emma!

We love releasing new It's Sew Emma patterns out into the quilting world, so today is a BIG DAY. We have five fantastic new quilt patterns, and we can't wait for you to start quilting with them!  So, without further ado, we present our new patterns! 

Please welcome Daisy Patch, Dancing Stars, Posy, Desert Jewel and Promenade to the It's Sew Emma pattern lineup!  There's something for everyone in this batch of new patterns - traditional to sweet and just a bit modern, you're sure to fall in love with some or all of these patterns!

This pattern is simply sweet, and is as fresh as a daisy! The pattern makes a 57 1/2" x 72 1/2" quilt, and our sample quilt uses Olive's Flower Market fabric by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. Daisy Patch is also available as a Quilt Kit, with a Backing Set that's sold separately. 

This pattern is striking, and would easily work for quilts you're making for males or females. The pattern includes sizing for crib, lap and queen quilts, and our sample quilt uses the Little Gatherings II fabric collection by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics. It can be made with the included template, or with our Starburst 30 Degree Triangle Ruler! We also have a Dancing Stars Quilt Kit and coordinating Backing Set!
Posy is a darling pattern featuring four different sizes: crib, lap, twin and queen! Our sample quilt uses the First Blush fabric collection by Ruby Red Designs for Windham Fabrics. There are so many ways to customize this darling quilt, and having four sizes available makes it super versatile and a great go-to pattern when making gifts! Posy also has a Quilt Kit and a Backing Set available!
Interested in making a king size quilt? Then Desert Jewel is the pattern for you - and how fitting - jewels for the king! This pattern is geared toward experienced quilters and includes instructions for three sizes: crib, lap and king. Our sample quilt was made with the Sundrops fabric collection by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics.  What a treasure, and a Quilt Kit and Backing Set are available!
Promenade is a lovely quilt pattern, well suited to experienced quilters. The pattern includes sizing for crib, twin and queen quilts, and our sample quilt uses the Gratitude fabric collection by Jo Morton for Moda Fabrics. Like the Dancing Stars quilt, it can be made with the included template, or with our Starburst 30 Degree Triangle Ruler! You may also make this beautiful quilt with our Promenade Quilt Kit and Backing Set!
We hope you're super inspired by our newest It's Sew Emma patterns! Which pattern will you buy and try first? Will you use the fabrics as shown in the pattern or change them up? We'd love to know so do tell, y'all. 
OH, and if you'd like to make sure you receive each and every one of our It's Sew Emma patterns as they're released, you may sign up for our Fat Quarter Shop exclusive It's Sew Emma Pattern Club HERE!  Happy Quilting!
