Cosmic!!! Pattern is ready

Pin It
I did it.
I got my Cosmic pattern ready!

Cosmic Pattern cover
This is the front cover.

I posted about this quilt way back during the Bloggers' Quilt festival, but was stalled in publishing the pattern with the prospect of needing to learn a new software program.  But bit by bit, I got it put together in to something I'm quite proud of.  

Cosmic quilt

This design features a large, graphic block that is part arrow and part star.  I used Laura Gunn's Cosmos fabric, because I thought the large scale blocks would complement the artwork in her fabric.  I love that this block would be good for large scale, focal prints, because sometimes you don't want to cut them in to little tiny pieces.

If you look at the back cover, you can find all the fabric requirements to make one of your own.

Cosmic pattern back cover

Included in the pattern are fully diagrammed cutting and piecing directions, full size template pieces, and a coloring page for planning (who doesn't love a coloring page?)  There are no 'Y' seams in the construction of this block, and the piecing uses a combination of regular rotary cutting and cutting from templates.  I have a small and full set of acrylic templates available if you would like working with acrylic more than paper.  The templates are clear, laser-cut, and labeled accurately.  (Templates will be shipped early next week).

Here is a shot of them, (as well as a peek at a new pattern I'm working on that uses one of the large templates.)
Cosmic templates!

To clarify the templates:
- The large set includes all four of those templates shown above, and the red and gray pieces shown below.  There are two large kind of house-shaped pieces, and two smaller notched triangles.
- The small set only includes the two smaller notched triangles (shown in red, which are nice to have a template for).

The pattern includes all the full-size paper templates; you only need these if you prefer to cut with acrylic.

So there you go!
Cosmic. 

You can find the pattern here in my pattern shop, or on Craftsy. :)

Linking to Fabric Tuesday!

I have some large scale Martha Negley fabric I am reluctant to use in tiny bits. Cosmic might be the perfect setting for it. Thanks for perservering so that we can all try our hands at this gorgeous pattern!

CJ said...

Ohhhhhh such a great quilt and congratulations on getting the pattern in production! I am thinking 'Notting Hill' or 'boho'.
Do we need BOTH sets of templates? A little confused on those.

I love your pattern! I think there are lots of possibilities. Impressions 2012 by Ty Pennington with a gray background is one. Or maybe Saltwater with a teal background.

What a fun pattern! I'd use DS quilts fabric because I probably have hoarded enough to make 100 of these!

Is this one of your just three goals? I am almost done with one of mine. Maybe tonight I'll finish it.

B Greene said...

Salt Water is a great idea for this pattern, but I was thinking of going really bold with Comma. Thanks so much for the chance to win - love the pattern!!!

Jessica said...

So pretty - I would love it in gray and Field Study as well!

marie said...

I'd make this using reproductions of 1800's fabric (only kind in my stash) with a tan background, to give it a vintage feel.

Books_Bound said...

I always love finding more ideas for "fabric feature" quilts! Hooray for you!

I love the line you used, or I think it would look smashing with "Notting Hill" which is a current favorite.

Kayla Yapuncich said...

What a great pattern! I could see using some stashed Pressed Flowers I have to show off the larger prints. Thanks so much for the chance!!

Katie B said...

Such a gorgeous design, Tracey! I think it would be really cool in a big AMH print like Field Study.

The quilt looks great!!! I would love to make this in Amy Butler's Alchemy fabric. I love working out to anything techno and some LMFAO. :-) Thanks for the opportunity.

Angie said...

Yay I am so excited about this quilt pattern. I think I might make this fun quilt out of my Amy Butler Charm Fabric that has been hiding in my stash for several years now with an Kona ash background fabric..hmmm

Angie said...

I also follow and love your blog! :-)

Marit said...

Oh, what a lovely pattern. Must say I'm a bit intimidated by the size, but I'm really hankering to make a star quilt... I think I'd like to make it in something from Art Galery Fabrics - maybe Rock'n Romance.

Marit said...

rainjerette said...

What a beautiful pattern! Thank you for sharing!

rainjerette said...

I am a follower, too, of course ;)

Elli said...

I am thinking of using a combination of Grunge, Shot cloth, with a little silk Radience. OOOh! I can't wait to start.

Cindy said...

I'd love to see it in sea glass colors of solids with Kona snow for the background. Or maybe the new line Comma with some quilters linen. Love the pattern!

Cindy said...

Already a follower. :)

Kirsten said...

Love this pattern! I have some Amy Butler "Lark" fabric here that I think would be perfect - her large scale prints are sometimes lost in smaller patterns.

Kirsten said...

And I am a follower of your blog.

Amy Friend said...

Congratulations! It's beautiful.

Lee said...

Tracey! I LOVE THIS! Love! On my to-do list for sure!!

Kerrie Porter said...

I really love every print from Tsuru. I think the pattern would really do the prints in this collection justice!

Anita said...

Love the pattern! Can't decide between Tapestry or Notting Hill, two great looks! Sorry no song :( thanks for the discount!

Tamie said...

Very pretty. I'm thinking Bonnie and Camille's new line that has some navy in it.

Tamie said...

I'm following.

refibered said...

Gorgeous pattern! That middle block fabric is my favorite, and makes me think a quilt done with a few simple, tartan plaids would be stunning. Also, my current favorite line, Salt Water, would make an amazing quilt with this pattern, too...so many options!

katie@stvital said...

Love it, great pattern Tracey. It may not qualify as large scale, but I would like to see it in Pat Bravo Indie.

Joanne said...

You have created a lovely design. The templates would be the icing on the cake. Keep up the great design work. As to what fabrics to use it would probably go with batiks. Music to sew by...i like the spa new age music to get in the zone. Kknd of you to hold a giveaway. Joanne

sherryberrybim said...

I love this pattern. I think I would use my collection of men's plaid shirts for this quilt.

I have so much fabric in my stash, I need to use that. So I would pick each one to be a different color.

Sindy said...

Lovely! I've been drooling over the Parson Grey line, and just bought a 1/2 metre of 19 different colours/patterns of the line, so I think that is what I'd like to use :-) I'll definitely be buying the pattern and template pack - especially after seeing Poppyprint's block!!

Debbie said...

This is really lovely and perfect in the fabrics you chose! Congrats on publishing your pattern!

Karen said...

The fabrics you chose are lovely. I think it would be pretty in Bella by Lotta Jansdottir.

Carla said...

Love this pattern.....I just bought some Honey, Honey by Kate Spain...wouldn't that be fun for this design!!

I think I would try Simply Color or Urbanista. Great pattern!
