Designer Thursday: Two Little Banshees

Happy to announce my winner from last week was Julie! Congratulations! And she was the first comment, so it can happen.

Now, I love a nice big quilt block. Means putting together a big quilt goes that much faster.

And this quilt is BIG!

(my little peanut, whose quilt this will be)

Granted, the pattern only does four blocks and I did more than that. So, um, mine ended up being about 88X124. I know. HUGE!


Loved making this quilt. Quilted all over. Backed in flannel, which isn't so cozy right now, but will be come October. Bound with orange flowers. And checked it off the 3QFAL list.


The designer is Kate Henderson for Two Little Banshees. I discovered her on Craftsy, and grabbed the Wagon Wheels pattern right off.

But just look at her other patterns:

In Bloom (I have a jelly roll just ready for this one!)


Fergus Fish


Sails on the Harbour


There are more animals (platypus, anyone?), and her Spring Rain quilt is to die for adorable. The Seattle girl in me desperately wants one!


And, like all the designers featured on my Designer Thursdays, Kate has given permission for pattern purchasers to sell items made from her patterns.

And it gets better! She's offered, as a giveaway, a copy of her Wagon Wheels pattern AND the pattern of your choice. You lucky ducks! But now you have to choose, and I don't envy you there. I want them all! So head over to her Big Cartel store and tell me which is your favorite.

  6. You're right, it would be really difficult to choose, but sails on the Harbor is a winner (in my mind at least) so I'd have to choose that one. But darn, that fish is adorable! Thanks for the info....I'm headed there now.

  26. I'm probably too late to enter, but I love the Wagon Wheel pattern. I wanted to say how cute your little one is. That quilt is for her? She'll be able to use it in a king size bed when she moves out of home! I love the pattern and the bright happy colours you've chosen.
