Two Hearts Beating as One {Finished Quilt & Pattern Release}

Do you like to make seasonal and holiday themed quilts? Honestly, I typically would answer that I do not. But I happened to be doodling about a month ago and struck on the fact that I could overlap hearts to make transparency hearts. Well, suddenly that looked like something I wanted to explore more and turn into a quilt! I...

Tumbling Transparency Placemats

When Sandra from mmm!quilts posted about making placemats earlier this month, it got me thinking. A little over 7 years ago, in Novemer 2012, I made a set of 4 placemats for my husband and I to use at home based on a tutorial by Alissa, one of the co-founders of the Modern Quilt Guild. I didn't reduce the presser...

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...

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.
