Monday Mockup #16- Snippets

It's been a while since I've done a mockup, here's a fun one! A while back I was doodling around on EQ7 and came up with this pattern. Usually I like to run patterns by some quilty friends to make sure they haven't seen something the same out there in the big quilt pattern world. The last thing I want to be is a copycat, even if unknowingly. In this case, they let me know that, with different color placement, this was just like Bonnie Olavesen's pattern "Snippets".

Bonnie's pattern is designed to be scrappy, using Charm Packs. However, if you isolate each print in one block, you get this version! I'm fairly certain this can be done with a layer cake, which is why I put it in a 6 by 7 grid (42 squares in a layer cake).  I think it's so striking this way, though I do adore the original scrappy one! Here's a peek at Bonnie's original version, image via Moda's blog. It's such a fun quilt!

This is going to be a happy week for me when it comes to quilts. I've got three big ones coming back from the longarm- best mail ever! I can't wait to show you. What are you making this week?


  1. Scrappy is nice but I do like your symmetry better. Loving your color choices.

  2. I have EQ 7 and no idea how to use it. Did you just dive in or take classes

  3. Thank you for sharing this mockup design. It's beautiful. You have good test in colors. Nice choice.
