Parcels in the Post & an amazing giveaway!

Hello again, Friends!  Happy Day to you all!  Today, I am back today to share with you my first finish of the year!  My Parcels in the Post quilt is made with At Home fabrics from Moda Fabrics.

You may purchase the Parcels in the Post pattern HERE.

I had shared with you at the beginning of the year I have pulled back on my magazine work, and am working to bring my designs direcctly to you.  For every design that makes it to my pattern line, there are probably between 6 to 10 that don’t make the cut.  The designs you see in my pattern line will be versatile, non-fabric specific, and often times, all you need would be Fat Quarters + a background fabric to complete a quilt top.

In the case of Parcels in the Post, you will need 18 FQs + background fabric + binding fabric (part of which will be used in the blocks).  So, get raiding on your stash!



This slightly different direction in my quilting journey has allowed me to have more time to explore the possibilities within each of my quilt designs.  In the following you can see that Parcels in the Post works with any fabrics – themed, Christmas, tonal etc!   I will be making more versions of this quilt, and will share them as I get them completed!

And The Patchwork Co of Windham, New York is having a most generous giveaway of a total of 30 (!) Diamond Dust (by Windham Fabrics) fat quarters to celebrate the release of my Parcels in the Post pattern!  Remember, you only need 18 for the quilt!  Winner will also receive the pattern in pdf format.  So, check out the details of the giveaway HERE.

NOTE:  Only comments left on The Patchwork Co’s Instagram page will be counted for the giveaway.  Comments on this post here are most appreciated (truly!), but will not be considered for the giveaway.



And here is my take on how to use the Diamond Dust fabrics in Parcels in the Post — and of course, you can absolutely come up with your own version!

  1. What a fun new design Wendy. And I love the Diamond Dust fabrics in Parcels in the Post too! But this design looks to me that it would also be an excellent scrap buster for anyone wanting to use fabric from their stash, as well as those that might want to use themed fabric to make this sweet design (e.g. Valentine’s Day fabric, Easter Fabric, Halloween, Christmas, etc.) But the Diamond Dust fabrics is definitely a winner, as is your new design. Total #CreativeGoodness.

  2. I love this pattern and so happy to hear that you are designing for you – less stress and I’m sure more creativity is going to flow. Patchwork Co is a local shop and thrilled to see them as a support for you. They are such a delightful couple and very supportive to their community and the local guild.

  3. Oh my, such a fun pattern! So happy to hear that we get to peek at many more of your creations with your new adventure. Maybe your deadlines can be a bit more relaxed and you will have some well deserved “playtime.” Thank you for continuing to inspire!!! 😊

  4. This pattern is really fun. I love the look of the happy packages!! How cute. I can imagine my silly grand girls hopping on this quilt

  5. Love the pattern. With as many quilts as you’ve had in magazines I wondered how you ever got to just play. I’m glad you’re taking time away and yet still playing with designs and fabrics. Enjoy!
