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 Tuesday! I hope everyone is having a great day. Have you entered our Nordic FQB Giveaway yet? Be sure to enter here!

 

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!

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having a great day. It’s the last day to enter our Star Wars: The Force Awakens Giveaway on our Facebook Page.

 

Time for today’s How To’s Day! This week, we are featuring one of our free quilt patterns – Border Blast by The Quilted Button. The Border Blast is a fun play on different types of borders to create a quilt pattern , including checkered rectangles and different width-ed borders. We chose to keep this one simple (though it also looks great with our designs – such as with our What a Gem Collection) by using our Fresh Solids. Different shades of blues and purples combine to create this bold and blocked quilt.

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a relaxing, long weekend. Did anyone work on any fun new (or WIP) projects?

 

It’s time for our How To’s Day! Today we are sharing one of our free quilt patterns, our Farm Stand Quilt by Anne Sullivan of Play Crafts. Farm Stand is a very cool and clean quilt pattern, featuring “columns” of fabric separated by a solid. We chose to have our Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection made up in this quilt, and absolutely adore the linear, ombred effect created with the many, different designs. Melissa Dunworth of Sew Bitter Sweet Designs quilted the quilt for us, and are obsessed with her quilt work! Thanks, Melissa… SOO much!

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all are having an amazing day!!

 

For today’s How To’s Day, we are featuring one of our exclusive quilt patterns from our Free Projects Program. The Butterfly Quilt was created by the incredibly talented Melissa Stramel, of Lilac Lane Patterns. Melissa has now expanded her patterns to clothing and accessories, for women and little girls…and their dollies! But, we are obsessed with her Butterfly Quilt, which gives a unique flair to a quilt pattern. The little triangles throughout the pattern look like butterflies, which may seem complicated, but in the end – a super neat effect.

We love a contrast between the butterflies and the background, so that the butterflies really pop! Imagine a white quilt with solid colored butterflies?! That would be so so coooool. We decided to feature the Butterfly Quilt at our booth for Spring Quilt Market, in our popular Botanical room. The quilt displayed as a backdrop to the room (and because of its size, was a real showstopper!). It really made everything come together.
