Castle Courtyard Pattern by It's Sew Emma


Hey guys! It's Jocelyn, and I'm here to introduce to you our newest It's Sew Emma pattern, Castle Courtyard. I was watching a quilt video and caught a glimpse of a folded, antique looking quilt in the background. All I could see was a star block quilt, with stars centered between sixteen-patch (or maybe even twenty-five patch) blocks, but I loved it! I knew that the new Downton Abbey fabrics would be a great match for the pattern. 


We created two colorways for this Castle Courtyard pattern with the Jewel Tones and the Pastel Castle.

I think the jewel tones do it for me. The pastels would make a great baby quilt. Both beautiful in their own way.

Both are really nice colors. The softer colors are definitely meant for a baby and the jewel tones just really make the quilt stand out.

I love the jewel tones!

Initially, I was definitely on the jewel tone side. I purchased the Ladies of Downton Abbey quilt kit from the first DA collection of fabrics so have decided to go "downstairs" for this quilt.

I am a more pastel user but love the other as well.

I love the Jewel Tones... but I would probably switch out the mauve colorway for those rich greens in Lady Sybil's collection.

I'm loving the pastel tones. It's a perfect marriage of the pattern and the fabric.

The purple and the blue. That is beautiful. The other one is sweet and muted. Very pretty, but the darker, wow. It is a beauty

Jewel tones for sure!

I just ordered the pattern and fabric and I really like both color ways. I modified the color way on the jewel tone, and removed the darkest fabrics and substituted more of the lighter blues and mauves. I like the light one also, but prefer whites and grays to the creams ans browns.
Love the pattern

I like the jewel tones. Blues are so soothing.

Country Girl said...

I would like to have them both! I love the jewel tones and it really grabs your attention. The pastel would be very pretty in a girls room or a baby quilt or a room with lots of wicker.

The pastel tones do it for me with this quilt, which has surprised me as I usually go for brighter fabrics. Those pastels with this pattern just look so serene and ladylike; very Downtown Abbey.

They are both SO beautiful and it took me a bit to decide, but I think I have to go with the Jewel Tone!!! Love the colors!

Debi Horne said...

Wow this is hard, but I think I'M leaning more on the pastel. Both are beautiful!

Jewel tone is my favorite. Both are beautiful - pastels for a baby maybe.
