Psychedelic 10″ Edge to Edge

Can you picture the swirling colors of oil based paints floating on the surface of the water?  It’s just ready to lay a piece of paper or fabric on the surface to collect the spontaneous design.  That’s what I thought of while drawing this swirly, and very versatile design.  It will become one of your favorites.  It’s already one of mine! I recommend sliding the pattern for alternate rows although it can be rolled straight down.

If you want this pattern now, it is also available as an instant PDF download for you to print (click here), plus you get it for 20% off the price of the paper roll!

Frolic 10.5″ Interlocking

Frolic feels delightful. It’s right on the edge of onomatopoeia. It is full of life and innocent fun.  At my age I don’t think that I frolic much anymore, but I’d like to.

I remember in college “frolicking” at a leadership conference at Fish Lake in the Utah Mountains. We were all a little dizzy with lack of sleep and exciting activities. Suddenly it began to rain. And all of us ran out to dance and frolic in the raindrops.  That’s a freedom we don’t often allow ourselves as we become “grown-ups”, but the inner child in us wants to do so.  We are tempted to run through the sprinklers, or in the fountains at the park, or in the rain!

Frolic with this new pattern as you dance and swirl across a colorful quilt.  It is 10 ½ inches wide and 12 feet long.

If you noticed: this pattern has similarities to our very favorite “Psychedelic” pattern.  I took one of the motifs from that pattern.  But, “Frolic” has a shorter repeat and can roll straight down.
