Hi everyone,





Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having an amazing one. If you’ve got a bit of the winter blues, today’s post will definitely brighten up your day!


Today’s How To’s Day is of our Hang Time Quilt by Happy Quilting Designs. This one features our Kaleidoscope collection, which is a whimsical and bright collection of festive confetti, lovely mandalas, and cool ikat prints in a purple, mint, and coral colorway. We just love the happiness that exudes from this collection, and thought it would be a perfect fit for Hang Time. We chose a gradation of color, which looks stunning within the intricate design.

The holiday season is officially here! And there is so much left to do – decorating the tree, finding those last minute gifts, planning the perfect menu for your upcoming holiday party, and baking, baking…and oh yes, more baking. And while we can’t help with your holiday shopping or baking, we’ve got a fun DIY today that will surely add festivity to your party decor!


Our Chalkboard Fabric Holiday Banner is perfect for organizing your party (DIY hot chocolate bar, anyone? :)), as a backdrop for a photobooth, or for adding some extra holiday cheer! We had our office Christmukkah party this past weekend, and our banner added a modern and creative element to the decor. And the best parts? It’s not too difficult to make… and it’s reusable!

Hi everyone,





Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all having a lovely day.


It’s time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are featuring our Flower Power Quilt by Quilt Doodle Designs. Flower Power is a more traditional-type quilt design, which includes beautiful floral cutouts and appliqued yo-yo centers. Around each flower is a border of small squares, which add a really fun detail. A lot of work, but visually worth it!


We chose to feature our Petite Plume by Andrea Turk collection, which was perfect with the powerful flowers in the quilt pattern. The bird/floral/feather prints in chartreuse, navy, and coral colorways matched together to create a sophisticated and clean design. We enjoyed Cindy of Quilt Doodle Designs’ unique style, and we had a wonderful time collaborating with her on this quilt pattern.

Time for this week’s How To’s Day! Today we are featuring our Peaks & Valleys Table Runner by Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting Designs. The Peaks & Valleys Table Runner is a simple, but elegant table runner that will add a fun pop to your dining or living room table. The “zig-zag” designs are made up of smaller triangles to resemble peaks & valleys, while the clean white space makes it an easy mixing piece with your current decor. How pretty does it look with the color colorway of our Beach House by Jack!e McFee collection? Gorg!




We also had this table runner made up for our Quilt Market Mickey Mouse & Friends section. We adore how the bright, primary colors look together. Shannon Fraser did such an amazing job!
