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

Hand Quilted Mug Rug – Kaffe Fabrics

For April’s Aurifil Artisan challenge, the task was to use a provided Kaffe Fassett fabric and coordinating Aurifil threads in our project. I’ll be the first to admit that Kaffe fabrics aren’t my usual go-to when quilting, but this big floral print caught my eye and the gears started turning. I turned my fabric into a hand quilted mug rug and I’m so pleased with the outcome. First, I started by cutting a 7″ xContinue reading

Modern Crossing Quilt Coat

For the outside of my coat, I chose the Modern Crossing Quilt pattern and decided to sew it up inContinue reading

Cirrus Quilt Coat

I rarely sew anyone else’s quilt patterns anymore, since pattern samples keep me so busy! However, when my friend Emily from Homemade Emily Jane shared with me her latest quilt pattern, I told her I had to make it ASAP. Her Cirrus quilt pattern is lovely, modern, and customizable! I chose to keep my gingham flying geese neutral and use a green background. From the moment I picked out these fabrics I knew I wouldContinue reading

Woven Hearts Pillow

I made this pillow using my new Woven Hearts quilt pattern! The great thing about this pillow is that you only make one block from the quilt. So, it is a great way to test out a quilt pattern and see if you’d want to make an entire quilt without ending up with a ton of orphan blocks. For this Woven Hearts pillow, I used a variety of Riley Blake Designs basics. The heart isContinue reading

Scrappy Bear Path Quilt

Believe it or not, this quilt has been in the works for a very long time. In fact, it was the second Bear Path I started, way before I had even written the pattern or sent it off to testers. However, I ended up not having the time to finish it before the release, and then it sat, in pieces until I became motivated to finish up some WIPs. I’m so glad I chose toContinue reading
