Misty Mountains Coaster

As an Aurifil Artisan, I choose to participate in challenges throughout the year that use Aurifil thread. I absolutely love these because they push me outside of my comfort zone. This month’s theme is Foundation Paper Piecing (FPP) and I immediately thought it would be so much fun to use create a Misty Mountains coaster! I’m quite the rookie when it comes to FPP and my previous experiences, well, I didn’t really love them. ButContinue reading

But, for the ultimate scrap experience, you want the “Scrappy Variation” of the Starlite quilt.Continue reading

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!

Woven Hearts – Stay Gold Version

When my Woven Hearts quilt pattern first released, I really thought that it was probably best suited for solids or blenders. The pieces are on the smaller side, so they worked well with solids. However, when Ruby Star Society showed me their upcoming collections, I knew I had to mock it up in Stay Gold by Melody Miller, and really fell in love with the mock-up! Happily, I got to translate that mock-up into aContinue reading

Zipper Patchwork Chore Coat Hack

Want to make the Patchwork Chore Coat with a zipper instead of button closure? Read on for all the details! For the Spyglass version of my Patchwork Chore Coat, I knew I wanted to make two modifications: Add length and add a zipper.
