Friday Fluff 3/9

FOLLOW ME @ivory_spring on Instagram IF YOU HAVEN’T. Instagram is where I best interact with quilters, and where I share the latest news!


Happy Friday, my Friends! I hope you have had a good week. I have spent much time the last couple of weeks getting patterns packed and shipped to distributors. With all my immediate deadlines fulfilled, I will be using this weekend to catch up on housework! I would much rather be stitching, but…

Chestnut Grove Quilt Along

I have LOVED seeing the different work-in-progress Chestnut Grove quilts on Instagram. One thing that stood out to me is that quilters are using so many different background fabrics for their Chestnut Grove quilts! I am waiting to see one that uses a scrappy background — if you are making the quilt and using a scrappy background, please get in touch with me.

Click HERE in case you miss the first check-in for Chestnut Grove. You can definitely join in the quilt along ANYTIME. There is no sign-up fee, and you are free to sew at your own pace!

Harrisonburg Quilt

This is week #4 of Harrisonburg Quilt Along to benefit the VA Quilt Museum.

I am happy to share the news that so far $23k has been raised for the museum. THANK YOU for your support. Stay tuned for more exciting stuff that will be happening. If you haven’t watched Pat Sloan on YouTube talking about Harrisonburg quilt, you totally should!

New Pattern Release

This week I shipped off a bunch of printed patterns for Make Gnome Mistake to the distributors. The name gives me a chuckle. You may purchase the pattern in PDF format HERE, or you may check your local quilt shop in a couple of weeks for the printed version.

There is NO paper piecing involved to make the gnomes in this quilt, only conventional piecing is used.


I will be announcing a quilt along for my Winging It pattern to start after Easter! I just need to sit down to work on the schedule. Meanwhile, you may purchase the pattern HERE, or if you want to make the quilt EXACTLY like I had design, kits are available HERE.

And that is it for now! I hope to get my de-stash blog post up next week for you as well. My de-stash stash is getting too big!

Have a great weekend!
