Nordic Star Ombre Quilt

Meet my Nordic Star ombre quilt version! This quilt in blues and teals is the cover of my latest pattern, Nordic Star.

Naturally Dyeing Fabric: My First Experience

This past weekend I went to a naturally dyeing fabric workshop. This has been on my bucket list for years! I’ve wanted to learn about natural dyes and start incorporating them into my quilts but have been really overwhelmed with the information currently available. I’ve gotten every book from the library and read them all, but each book told me how to mordant the fabric differently, using different mordants, and treat with tannins, or aContinue reading

Each variation allows for a slightly different finished quilt. The cover quilt, which you can see in the image below, is the “Fat Quarter Variation” made with Fat Eighths and a single background color. But, for the ultimate scrap experience, you want the “Scrappy Variation” of the Starlite quilt.Continue reading

Starlite Quilt – Cover Version

Meet the Starlite quilt! I’m thrilled with this pattern’s possibilities. You can use yardage, fat quarters, fat eighths, layer cakes or scraps for the ultimate scrappy quilt. The cover quilt is the “Fat Quarter” version in Fat Eighths. I was originally going to do it in fat quarters but had a heck of a time narrowing down my fabrics so instead, I used them all!
