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.

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a lovey day.

 

Time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! New year, new beautiful quilts to be discovered!! Today we are sharing a gorgeous quilt pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. – Broken Bars! A version of the Broken Bars Quilt was created by Cristina Tepsick from Pretty Little Quilts. The quilt design reminded her of rows of books, and from that inspiration, created a Jane Austen-inspired color scheme with our Magnolia by Alisse Courter collection. She followed Jenny’s tutorial pretty much to a “t”, but changed the sizes of the strips to give an authentic bookshelf feel. We love her version, and how she even added strips of horizontal pieces to reference a real book’s spine. The Broken Bars quilt is such a great one, and we adore how Cristina revamped it! What a fantastic tutorial reboot.

Time for our How To’s Day! Today we are featuring our Seeing Stars Quilt by Nancy Purvis of Owen’s Olivia. Seeing Stars is a gorgeous, modern quilt design that looks like glowing stars in the sky. Especially with our In the Navy by Jackie McFee collection – the little bits of metallic gold fabric makes the stars sparkle! This quilt would be perfect for added some sparkle to a bedroom or living room space.
