Quilt Coat | A Finished Project

I MADE A QUILT COAT!!! Have you seen quilt coats floating around the internet lately? Oh friends I knew I had to make one too. This one, actually, is my wearable muslin but I think it has graduated to “actual clothes” since I love it so much. My neighbor told me I was channelling ketchup & mustard vibes and Jason called it a Harry Potter cloak but I’ll forgive them both because this is officiallyContinue reading

I found this free quilt coat pattern for toddler size 2-2.5 fromContinue reading

Whole Cloth Hand Quilted Quilt

This month’s Aurifil Artisan challenge was a whole cloth quilt. Immediately, I knew that I wanted to do organic hand quilting. This is something that I’ve wanted to try for a while but didn’t have the push to do so, until now! Although hard to capture correctly in photographs, the top fabric is a Windham Artisan Cotton Solid Aqua/White. I love the softness and lovely drape of Artisan Cottons! Huge thank you to Windham forContinue reading

Zippy | Golden Hour

How gorgeous are these fabrics? I was lucky enough to get fabric from Ruby Star Society’s newest collection, Golden Hour, in order to make a Zippy Quilt! You can see my quilt featured in their promotional video below: I had to snap a few photos of Riley on this Golden Hour Zippy Quilt before I sent it to Ruby Star Society. How cute is he? Oh, and if you’re wondering how I get him toContinue reading
