May is for Makers - Weeks 3, 4, & 5

I have really enjoyed the #MayIsForMakers initiative that has taken place this last month. I supported some close friends (Hi Becca & Felice) as well as some more widely known makers. Here are the last 3 patterns that I have purchased. 

Week 3 - Bubble Plus by Felice Regina of Sew Scatterbrained

Week 5 - Geometric Alphabet by Kristy of Quiet Play

What patterns did you purchase for #MayisForMakers?

May is for Makers - Week 2

My second #MayisforMakers pattern purchase is the Vera quilt by Bryan House Quilts! Becca was in the Houston Modern Quilt Guild here in Houston, but then she moved to Missouri for her husbands work. Thankfully I still get to see her at quilting events like QuiltCon and Quilt Market! 

I love the Vera pattern because it is fat quarter friendly, and because it only uses a small amount of background fabric. I'm excited about making a few versions of this quilt, and I definitely have plenty of fabric to choose from!

May is for Makers - Week 1

A few days ago I told you guys about the May is for Makers campaign being started by Lindsey from LR Stitched, and I pledged to support an indie pattern designer each week in May.

So for my first week I purchased the Zippy Top by See Kate Sew. I purchased my digital copy from Indiesew because I love that I can find all of my purchases in one place when I shop there. I am hoping to get one of these done once I dig out the rest of my garment sewing supplies from the moving boxes!
