I finished the lap size sample quilt for my upcoming Bokeh Quilt Along last week, so today I can finally reveal the design for the upcoming quilt along. I really love this design, so I hope you are ready to see a lot of photos of the quilt! As I mentioned, I made the lap size version of Bokeh, which...

August Patron Mini Mini Quilts

After 2 months in shipping, a mini mini quilt that I shipped internationally was finally received last week. The tracking number had not updated for a month, and I was starting to fear it had been lost, so I was super delighted to hear that it was finally received. Now that it has been received, I can share the...

Modern Plus Sampler {Finished Quilt}

I'm really pleased to be able to mark my final long term WIP off my 2020 goals; my Modern Plus Sampler quilt is finished! The air quality here continues to be atrocious, so no outdoor finish photos of the quilt. I have been suffering through a bit of depression; I could handle being home and only going to the grocery...

Bonus Bouquet {Finished Quilt}

What's even better than one quilt? Two! The curve star blocks and inset curve stars create scraps that are perfect for squaring up and creating drunkard's path blocks, so I designed a second quilt using an additional background fabric and the Pistils & Pollen scraps to showcase how Morrison Park looks against a darker background. I really adore how the...

Rainbow Mini Mini Quilt {Patreon Reward}

I love making mini mini quilts, and I especially enjoy getting to make them when they are for my Patrons. I've had a few patrons unlock their mini mini quilt rewards recently, so I've had some fun making these tiny quilts. Today I can share one of the recent finishes; I'm still waiting on an international package to be...

Hang On {Finished Quilt}

Many thanks to Kathe E. (@_duchick_) for the perfect name suggestion for the Sky Full of Stars bonus quilt: Hang On. Like many others, she saw a rope like shape and, in her own words, " is ready to be tied into a knot for that saying, ‘tie a knot and hang on’. Perfect thought for this peculiar year!" I...

Curve Star and Inset Curve Star Mini Quilt

This week I was able to turn my test block for the Inset Curve Star tutorial into a finished mini quilt. The mini quilt uses curve star blocks, square in a square blocks, and an inset curve star. With the test block finished as a mini quilt, I have one long term WIP that needs to be quilted, but...

Inset Curve Star Mini Quilt

I was able to finish the first of two test piecing blocks that I figured deserved to become finished mini quilts over the weekend. When I pieced the brightly colored yellow, green, and purple test block that was my first attempt at piecing an inset curve star, I wasn't sure if my piecing idea was going to work. To...

Sky Full of Stars {Finished Quilt}

Well, in the end I stuck with the 1" quilting density for Sky Full of Stars. The quilting seems to be just what the quilt needed, and I probably didn't have enough of the dark navy thread to double the density. The quilt finished at 48" square after quilting and binding. I love how the quilt shows off both the...

Mum’s Garden {Finished Quilt}

Mum's Garden took me a month from start to finish, although I was itching to use the color palette starting back in April when I brought home all those Kona Cotton solids from my closing local quilt shop. It is definitely one of my favorite quilts I've made so far. This quilt has been a joy to work on;...

Push-Pull QAL {Queen Size Finish}

I sewed along with the Push-Pull Quilt Along in order to make a new queen size quilt for our bed at home. Today, I'm happy to finally be able to share the finish and how the queen size quilt drapes on the mattress. I purposefully designed the quilt to have the focal design elements seeming to fall off the edge...

2018 Aurifil Designer of the Month Quilt Finish

By taking it slow and steady this week, I'm thrilled to say I was able to finish my 2018 Aurifil Designer of the Month quilt. My shoulders got tired of wrestling with the quilt as I began the spiral; it's a lot of bulk to move around for those first several passes. I took frequent breaks and stretched a lot...

Downstream {Pattern Release}

A little over 3 years ago, I made a quilt I named "Downstream" for the Quilt Design a Day QuiltCon exhibit. I used paper piecing to make the quilt, so when I considered writing a pattern for it, I struggled with how to offer it in sizes larger than the wall hanging size I created due to the ridiculous...

Trussed {MDL Mini Quilt Challenge Finish}

The April Aurifil Artisan prompt or challenge is to share about our favorite thread weight, and the Trussed mini quilt is a great example of my most used thread weight, 50wt, coupled with the fact that I love using other thread weights to accentuate details. When I last shared about the MDL Mini Quilt Challenge, I went through my...

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...

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...

One of my goals for 2020 was to finish 3 long term WIPs, and today I get to cross the first of those off the list: my Splendid Sampler 2 quilt. During the sew along, I pieced a total of 42 Splendid Sampler 2 blocks. The blocks finish at 6" square, and just sewing them together into a 6 x...
