Square Root ~ A New Pattern

I'd love to share with you my latest pattern:


Square Root is a Jelly Roll pattern. 
The cover quilt is made up in Kate Spain's Fandango line of fabric. 
[Such great colors and prints, if you ask me.]


It's a very scrappy quilt using a very versatile block!


You can make it with or without the applique blocks.


And, I think it would be a great stash buster pattern,
if you didn't want to use a Jelly Roll.

 The finished size measures 54" x 70". 

Patterns are available in my etsy shop.

Want a copy?  Leave a comment below telling me what you think about
Square Root and I'll pick one winner to receive a free copy! 
Giveaway will end Wednesday at midnight.

Amber, I looked at the Square Root quilt and I looked at it a few more times and the more I look at it, the more I like it! Is it complicated? Would love to win it. Thanks! Rose

it's beautiful! I love the illusion with the white and how you've done the border.

Cute design Amber. :)

I love this! I love everything about it! I think I would use some floss to write some cute quotes in the big white squares, rather than do the appl. there, because that's more "me". I do hope I win! ~ Jody Edwards jody.edwards@yahoo.com

fabulous pattern!!

chelsea said...

I really like this, especially the way the variations in color can make it three dimensional

Peggy said...

What a beautiful pattern, WOW. There is nothing left to say.

DianeY said...

I love it-it's so clean & fresh looking! A perfect amount of white really highlights the fabric!

Rachel said...

Oh I like this! Very much! Inhave the perfect jelly roll...

Sally said...

I like this pattern a lot! I love the Fandango, but I'm sure you could change the presentation so much just by changing up the fabrics. This is definitely a quilt that I would love to try to make.

Holly said...

Love it!! It's a fresh and airy pattern mixed with the wonderful fabrics!!!!

Bloom said...

Amber, this is one very clever quilt. I love it! I would never have guessed it was a jelly roll quilt. And a very cute name! Congratulations.

Jackie said...

It's a wonderful pattern! I love the borders and the applique. Gorgeous!

pinsandneedles said...

I really like this! I love the Fandango fabrics but agree it would work in other fabrics and be wonderful! Thanks!

Denise in PA said...

I love this pattern! Great job. The fabrics are fabulous too!

Deb said...

Love the pattern. It would be great made up in any fabric. Definitely a great size for a baby. I'll be making three baby quilts in next few months, two for close friends and one for a new grandbaby due in May.

Lauren H said...

Love the pattern and it looks great in Fandango!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Amber, Your new pattern is wonderful. Your right, it would be a perfect stash buster and now that I have my stash (though it is small) all out on my shelves where I can see it, I think I might...just might, have everything I would need to make "Square Root"! Including my "how too" books to try the applique. By this afternoon, my sewing room will be completely ready to start being a productive quilter again!!! Thanks for a chance to have your darling pattern. Good luck to everyone and hugs to you Amber...

Keri said...

Ambs, Maya's costume is seriously adorable. What a sweet little angel! Sorry you've been under the weather. Are you feeling better? Let's go to lunch soon - sometime before Misty has her baby. Maybe next week? And are you still up for going out on Fri? Let me know.

P.S. LOVE your new pattern!

Patty said...

The quilt is darling. I love jelly roll quilts when all the fabric is precut!

Alpine Quilt Retrets said...

Amber, Love the new pattern. This would be a great one to teach at your retreat in May! Let me know if you want me to ad a photo of it to your teaching schedule. I just love it!!

amy smart said...

Gorgeous, Amber! I love it.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

What a fantastic new pattern and I love it done in the fandango. I love your cute heart quilt too. I'm hoping to start one after the first of the new year. Thanks so much again for your giveaway. I am thrilled!

Marcia said...

This is a really cute pattern. How is that flower appliqued so cleanly? Your quilting really sets off the fabric design. Am I too late to enter the drawing? For some reason when read this on Tuesday, missed the giveaway at the bottom. My background is in mathematics so square root as the quilt name intrigued me.

Caro said...

This is really a clever pattern. I love your fabric choices. Thanks for a chance to win. casands1@comcast.net

Linda said...

Love the pattern - would look so different every time you made it with different fabrics. Great

Karalynn said...

Love your pattern, would like to try making a quilt with my stash.

Crafty Chookie said...

I hope I'm not too late to entre...What a fantastic give-away..Hugs

Really like this pattern - not the same old thing!! Modern, but still scrappy and fun.

Lizzie said...

I hope this quilt is my secret surprise...
