This fall Camelot teamed up with Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts to create The Force Quilt pattern, which Julie sewed for us in our new Star Wars: The Last Jedi collection. We revealed the quilt at Fall Quilt Market in Houston, and we were blown away by Star Wars fans’ positive response!

The Force Quilt is made with the letter block patterns from Alphabet Soup by Jaybird Quilts. Julie offers a  free pdf extension on her website, showing how to make The Force Quilt with the letter blocks from the book.  Be sure to visit our website for the project’s yardage requirements. Fabrics are from The Last Jedi cotton collection, which is in stores right now.

We’ve had our hands full this Tuesday, convincing our in-house bulldog Roxy to pose for pictures of dog-themed DIYs. Not a bad task for a Tuesday, right? Well, it took a little coaxing but she sat for us in the end.

Pet Themed Projects in Dog-Gone It

Fortunately for us, the DIYs took no convincing. For the dog-lovers out there (and we know there are a lot of you!), here’s a couple of playful little projects for your favourite pup. The fabrics? We dug into our Dog-Gone It collection, of course! This preppy group by Jackie McFee walks the line between sartorial style and lovable doggishness. Our gal Roxy may not have been too impressed by our choice of breed, though – both the collection and the table runner feature Dachshunds, not bulldogs.

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.
