Joanna Gaines. By now she's a household name - at least in my household.
I have been a fan of hers since Fixer Upper day one. One day, when Joanna was working on restoring what is now, Magnolia Market, she posted a picture that stopped me in my tracks.
This HAS to be a quilt.
So, I made it a quilt!
My friend Elizabeth thought it was great to. So great, she ever so kindly asked me to be the featured designer for the December 2018 Quilters Candy Box.
A few months later, I released Magnolia in my own shop. It has fast become my top selling pattern. It's quick, simple and has a timeless traditional feel.
Whether it's in solids or prints, this pattern has endless options for greatness!
The original pattern was only written for three sizes - baby, throw, and twin.
NOW, I'm happy to say, I have written two more sizes - Queen and King! I have made these bigger sizes and felt I should offer that information to all of you! So, if you have bought the pattern before July 2020, then this is for you, Large Size Quilt Requirement information.
Fun story: In the Summer of 2018, my family and I were moving cross country from Arizona to South Carolina. I had just finished my first Magnolia quilt and wanted to stop in Waco Texas so that I could go find the tile at Magnolia Market.
Even if it was ridiculous to most, I dragged some of my kids and MIL with me and I shoved that quilt in my back and we set off to find the tile. We were in the Market looking around at all the lovely items and I turned and saw someone come out of the bathroom - there it was, in all it's glory - THE TILE!
It embarrassing how excited I got over bathroom tile, I grabbed a kid and said "Hey, you need to use the rest room, right?!"
I went in and unpacked my quilt and took a photo. I'm so glad I did it, ridiculousness and all.
And now you know the story behind the Magnolia Quilt.
