A new collection, UPPERCASE Volume 2: Dots, Dashes and Diamonds is coming to fabric shops this fall! Visit this page in early April for more details and a fun UPPERCASE quilt block challenge!

UPPERCASE QUILT Block Challenge

Here’s a fun creative challenge! Whether you’re a quilter or not, everyone is invited to play with pattern.

1. Download and print this pdf to play with the patterns from UPPERCASE Volume 2: Dots, Dashes and Diamonds.

2. Design an original or traditional quilt block or use the patterns to create a collage. (Print out multiple copies if you need more of a particular pattern.) You can add solid white or black if you like. The finished designs should be square.

3. Take a square photo of your creation and share on Instagram with the hashtag #uppercaseblock. The creations will be displayed in an online gallery. 

Together, we’ll create a quilt design based on reader submissions. I’ll award some fabric to the favourites. Have fun!

I’m thrilled to share with you my first collection with Windham Fabrics. Since UPPERCASE’s inaugural issue in 2009, each magazine has had a unique repeat pattern that references the content within it. Over the years, the magazines have stacked up—and so has the collection of patterns.

Selected from my favourites, and presented in a palette that is vibrant, versatile and oh so UPPERCASE, the collection has 29 designs (including two in metallic silver).

UPPERCASE is a quarterly print magazine for the creative and curious. With content inspired by design, illustration and craft—and a penchant for all things vintage and typewriters in particular—the magazine is eclectic and colourful. 

With all my projects, my intention is to encourage and inspire readers to express their creativity. I’m excited to see what you’ll make with this collection! Share it on Twitter and Instagram #uppercasefabric.
