FREE PATTERN: Christmas Morning & THIS or THAT #9

Hello Friends, here is a fun (a bit lame!) fact for you…  Christmas will be here before we know it! :) I am happy to share with you Christmas Morning, another free to use design I did for Benartex using their Santa’s Here line.  I can see many of you having LOTS of fun with this design!  For added personalization – wouldn’t it be fun to add embroidered (hand or machine) names on some of the gifts?

And here is our latest installment of THIS or THAT on Christmas Morning:  Home Made Gifts or Store Bought Gifts?  Curious mind is really curious to know!

Thank you for stopping by.  I haven’t forgotten about posting about the new machine etc.  I have been working a lot, like A LOT…. and that is making me a rather dull girl.  But with God’s sufficient grace, I will eventually dig myself out of the pile/rubble!  :)

Have a lovely rest of your evening!

Cover Quilt Alert: All In Knots in FONS & PORTER’S EASY QUILTS (Summer 2015)

EQ150041

Happy Monday, Friends!  I am still here — I have just been extremely busy.  But I am doing well.  I am happy to share with you my latest magazine cover quilt, All In Knots, featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts!

I loved making All In Knots because the design gives the illusion (and it’s really just that, illusion) of knots without the work of making the knots.  Piecing is straightforward, and the blocks are pretty quick to make.

Design 1f_59.5 x 59.5

I used Pat Sloan‘s The Sweet Life fabrics to make All In Knots.  I really like the colors of this line. If you recall, The Sweet Life has this amazing word print fabric that has the word “cake”!   I am not into sweets, but I have to say cakes are definitely my “sweets” downfall!

IMG_9138

IMG_9175

Here are a few more photos of All In Knots.  I like the airy feel of made by the knots – perfect for a quilt on an outdoor bench in the summer evenings.

IMG_1208

Or as a topper for an outdoor table setting…

IMG_1224

IMG_1221

You may purchase a quilt kit to replicate the exact quilt here.

IMG_1198

I used Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton thread to construct and to quilt the quilt!  The batting used is Hobbs Tuscany Silk.  My quilts always love this combination, and I didn’t hear any complaints from the fibers! :)

IMG_1196

Here you see a peek of the quilting – it is simple swirls that give a bit of nice texture to a sweet and simple pieced quilt.

IMG_9134

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you liked seeing All In Knots.  Have a lovely week!  I shall check in with you later when I can…. I shall disappear for a bit, but not being telling you I love you all! So, what is on your plate this week?

Color & Count Fabric Giveaway Winners & More…

Hello Friends, this was meant to be yesterday’s post!  But I was frantically trying to finish up a quilt top and totally ran out time.  About 1100 fabric patches and 8 hours of quilting later, this quilt is on schedule to be shipped.  I just have one more quilt to complete from start to finish before Monday, and I will be able to breathe a little better… but enough about my trials and tribulations!

I am happy to announce the winners of Windham’s Color & Count fabric giveaway (hosted a couple of weeks ago here).

IMG_0831

IMG_0840

The winners are #30 (Dorothy) and #60 (VickiT) – Congrats, Ladies!  I have sent an email to you asking for your mailing address.  If you haven’t received the email, would you please email me directly with your mailing address?

Thanks EVERYONE, for entering the giveaway!  I will have more coming — I just need to get my act together.  And a big THANK YOU to Windham for providing the fabrics.  I do hope you will check out other Windham fabrics your local quilt shops might carry in your next shopping trip!

Meanwhile…. click here and check out my current/upcoming designs I have done for Windham. Bookmark the page if you would like because there will be more forthcoming designs, and I think some of these patterns are going to be kitted as well.  Keep your eyes peeled at your quilt shops!

windham project

That’s all for now, Dear Friends!  I hope you have a lovely rest of your weekend.  Now, I must look at what I am supposed to do for my next quilt… and figure out a way to get it done by Monday!  Now you see my life as a quilt designer is so totally un-glamorous, ha! I shall catch up with you later.

FREE PATTERN: For the Birds

Hello Friends – this is a follow-up post to my Birdhouse Neighborhood post from yesterday. Yeap – For the Birds is another free-to-use pattern using the same Tweet As Can Be fabric collection, a newly released line by Benartex!

I designed For the Birds with tweens, teens, and college kids in mind!  I thought the contemporary and easily constructed blocks would make a fun bed quilt, especially with the “slatted” effect from cutting the same fabric within a block in different widths.

High Res_Design 2c_78 x 98

Time is running out on a couple of projects on which I am working.  So, I’d better get going for now. I hope you have liked the designs I have done using the Tweet As Can Be fabrics.

So curious mind is wondering if you have a favorite bird.  I think mine would be the cardinal! And of course, you can see a couple of cardinal projects I have done in the past here, and here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cozy Town in McCALL’S QUILTING (July/August 2015) & Giveaway!

Cover-500px

Hello Friends, I wanted to share with you my Cozy Town quilt before the next issue of McCall’s Quilting hits the newsstands.  So, here it is…. Cozy Town in the July/August 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting!

Cozy-Town-FLAT-600px

I have always wanted to make the “traditional” house blocks — and I was glad I finally had a chance.  With the neutrals and black, I was able to give my house blocks an “urban” feel.  You will probably find it amusing that the black for the houses is inspired by this Crate & Barrel saltbox house candle thingamajig… It’s one of those things that has a slot in the back where you would place a tea candle, and it would light up the windows.  I didn’t know if it is appropriate to call it a candle holder because it feels much to large to be a candle holder to me…

IMG_0803

IMG_0801

IMG_0793

I used fabrics from Quilting Treasures’ Happy Home collection to make Cozy Town.  You may recall these fabrics I had shown you months ago… However for Cozy Town, I did not use the focal print, but rather only the neutral prints in the collection.

IMG_9346

With the fabrics in the same line, I had designed another “row house” quilt, as well as a “hut” table runner that have totally different feels compared to Cozy Town.  Click here for more information.

High Res_1a_version2_colored doors

High Res_runner_42.5 x 24.5

I love them all… but most of all, I feel with using only the neutrals in the line gave my Cozy Town quilt a sophisticated, but yet approachable and very COZY and traditional feel!

Cozy-Town-600px

Here is a closer look at the house blocks. You will notice that I mirror-imaged the house blocks from row to row to give visual interest to the overall look.

IMG_0813

I quilted an allover swirly vine motif, edge to edge on the quilt.  You may click here to view the stitching path of the swirly vine.  Aurifil Mako 50 wt cotton thread was used in the entire quilt – piecing and quilting (top and bobbin thread).  The batting used is Hobbs Tuscany silk batt.

IMG_0805

IMG_0809

IMG_0808

It was such a fun experience for me making this quilt.  It has a very special place in my heart because it draws my heart to my family!  Remember, complete instructions for making this quilt are printed in the July/August 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting, and this issue is going to be displayed on newsstands till July 27. I just saw it at my ever-so-crowded local grocery store earlier today.  You may also purchase the issue in digital format here. And, exclusive Cozy Town quilt kits may be purchased here.

IMG_0818

A big thank you to McCall’s Quilting for the opportunity to contribute.  McCall’s Quilting has also generously sent me two magazine copies as giveaway prizes… leave a comment between now and 7/22/2015, and tell me either the following to enter the giveaway:

1.  what you like about McCall’s Quilting magazine;

2.  whether Cozy Town is a quilt you would likely make;

3.  or, whether the neutral color scheme is your thing.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Some of you had already written to tell me about the “just out” McCall’s Quilting issue – another great one if I may say so myself…. but meanwhile, check out the July/August 2015 issue first!  You will have plenty of time still to go through the new issue! :)

Hugs to you all, and may a jug full of blessings from ABOVE come your way!

FREE PATTERN: Memento…. & etc!

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well.  Thank you for stopping by again.  It’s been a really happening summer at my end. I am not complaining, and am doing well!  I am working on quite a few things that I can’t quite share in full.  Meanwhile, I haven’t quite been able to take pictures of my recently returned magazine quilts. We have gotten quite a bit of rain in our area — and it’s made taking my usual outdoor photo shoots of my quilts a bit more challenging!  I keep hoping the weather would line up with my schedule!!  So, here are a couple of quick pictures to show you what are now official!

My All In Knots quilt made cover of Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts Summer 2015 Issue.

VERMONT QUILT FESTIVAL: Christine’s Movement in Squares

Hello Friends, Christine made my day yesterday when she sent me this picture of her Movement in Squares quilt in Vermont Quilt Festival 2015!  Movement in Squares won Benartex’s 2014 Fan Favorite, and I am happy to hear that many have enjoyed that pattern.  I love how Christine quilted her quilt with an “interlocking” motif!  Congratulations, Christine… and thank you for sharing your quilt with us!

Thank you, Friends, for stopping by.  I hope you week got off a stupendous start for you!  I am still reading your comments from a few days ago – you ladies are keeping me busy… but I am not complaining -no, no, no!  Gotta run for now – lots to get done this week.  LOTS!

I shall catch up with you later!  So…. what are you doing this week?

Upcoming… It is true…

… and happening!  Landauer Publishing is publishing my second book, available this Fall!  Thank you to Vivian for spotting the announcement and wrote to tell me about it.

Click here to read just a little more about the book.  There are a few more quilts that aren’t shown on the page.   I guess I just have to wait a little longer to share with you the other quilts, which happen to be my favorites – well, maybe the favorites among the favorites…. because all my quilts end up being my favorites, for some reason! :)

I am very excited!  More book details to follow… Gotta run for now!

FREE PATTERN: Jolly Old St. Nick

Hello Friends, my days go by so fast these days when I have a little constant companion for the summer!  I love the chattering, the occasionally clinging, and even the drama!  But all that doesn’t help me get things done.  So I have had to come up with some creative ways to still squeeze in work, and still meet the looming deadlines.

It seems like many fabric companies are releasing their Christmas collections this time a year — to give us quilters enough time to get our Christmas projects completed in time for Christmas!  I have another free pattern to share with you today that is meant to be a quick to finish panel project — Jolly Old St. Nick by Quilting Treasures.

Thanks for stopping by.  I’ve got to run as we are under a severe weather watch (again!).  I was going to finish up piecing a quilt top… but I don’t use my machine during stormy weather.  How about you?  Do you chicken out like me, or do you brave it?  I am going to do some hand-sewing instead….

I really had fun coming up with a fun and simple way to frame the panels in the panel print…
