Pulsar {December MDL Finish}

Today I'm pleased to share how my December MDL Challenge and Aurifil Artisan Holiday Project quilt came together. Pulsar finished at 37 1/2 inches square. I used the four-at-a-time flying geese method to make all the geese units. The most time consuming part of putting the quilt top together was deciding how I wanted to set the corner units. After...

December MDL Design Challenge

I had the honor of setting the challenge description for the December Modern Design Lab (MDL) design challenge. Instead of using a photo inspiration this month, I wanted the challenge to revolve around color, so when I found the Behr Color Trends for 2020, I thought they would be a great option for the challenge. We can choose to pull...

November Patron Mini Mini Quilts

I had 5 Patrons unlock the mini mini quilt reward in November. I typically aim to make mini mini quilts in the 4" square size range, but they all vary a little bit. Over Thanksgiving, we had over 9 inches of snow at my house, which made a soft photo background for these fun tiny quilts. I ask each patron...

Push-Pull Quilt Along {Fabric Selection}

There are two elements that create transparency quilts: design and color/fabric selection. From a design perspective, transparency is first and foremost about overlapping shapes. The Push-Pull quilt design explores overlapping triangular shapes. With the design element taken care of, the focus for the first Push-Pull Quilt Along instructions focus on color/fabric selection. If you have already purchased the Push-Pull Quilt...

Push-Pull {Completed Quilt}

I was able to finish hand stitching the binding on a lap sized version of Push-Pull the day after Thanksgiving, and I am so smitten with how it all came together! I used Northcott ColorWorks Premium Solids in Iris, Heather, and Lilac Mist. The backing is Iris and the binding is Heather. After quilting and binding, it finished at 65"...

Converting Images to Grayscale {Video Tutorial}

One of the topics that I cover when I teach transparency workshops is how to take good quality photographs of your fabric selections and convert the images into grayscale. Once the photos are in grayscale, it is easier to evaluate their relative values and edit your fabric selection to create stunning transparency quilts. I just completed a video tutorial to...

Scoop {November MDL Challenge}

I wasn't surprised to realize that I did not have enough fabric to make my initial November MDL Design Idea that I shared early last week. I didn't need to change much, and I have to admit that I really liked how the design evolved with just those few changes. After getting the design modified for the fabric I had...

Expanded Quilt Theory Digital Pattern Releases

When the Quilt Theory collaboration ended, the rights to the patterns reverted back to the original designers. This summer, I decided to revisit the 3 patterns I released with the group and expand them (they were originally all only for lap size quilts). Today, I am releasing the 3 expanded patterns. Tiled Parquet creates a strong geometric pattern with varying...
