A new pattern for the Great Northern Quilt Show - 'Maru'
'Maru' is a variation on the quilt I teach as 'Japanese Circles and Squares'. I've been asked for a pattern for a while now, so I will be launching it at the Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate in just over a week. It is ideal for large scale prints with big motifs and a lot of pattern variation in the centre, while the background to the circle is a great place to use up darker scraps from your stash. It takes a little more planning to arrange your fabrics for each block but is quite quick to make once you get going with it.
