Crayon Box! New free quilt pattern for Janome

I'm crazy about quilting, but I'm also really crazy about modern quilting.  The colors, the patterns, the newness of it all just makes me love everything about it!  Luckily, I got to create something with the curated Michael Miller Cotton Couture bundle available at local Janome dealers.  It's bright, cheerful, and has the awesomely saturated colors you can't get anywhere but from Michael Miller Fabrics (and no, they aren't paying me to say that).  Cotton couture is my favorite solid to work with right now, because it sews like BUTTER.  I've even used it in some garments and loved the result.  So if you're dying to see it, here's "Crayon Box":

You can find the full tutorial on the Janome website HERE and download the pattern for free!  I had a blast creating this and playing with the colors!  Use the hashtag #thecrayonboxquilt to share your creation.  

There's also a fun tutorial on how to do scrappy bindings in the free quilt pattern, just like in the picture below (and I just couldn't resist this Loominous Anna Maria Horner print for my backing):

And for quilting ideas, I did a super fun swirly motif.

So run and grab your free pattern and get sewing today :)
