Baby Teal Misty Mountains Quilt

I had the pleasure of making a teal Misty Mountains quilt in Art Gallery Fabrics. I simply love AGF, their fabrics are so soft and great to work with. For this version, I went with a more traditional approach, using variations of the same/similar color. As with other Misty Mountains quilts, I tried to go from darkest to lightest in my colors to give the illusion of mountains fading in the background. Want even moreContinue reading

Misty Mountains Quilt | Blue Throw Size

This blue Misty Mountains quilt is the first version I made when testing out the pattern! I love the blue gradient because, more than any other version, it really looks like a misty mountain range fading into the background. This blue Misty Mountains quilt is the throw size in Kona solids. Because it relies on big pieces, even a throw size Misty Mountains quilt can be made fairly quickly! Want even more Misty Mountains?

Spyglass Patchwork Chore Coat

I made Riley’s quilt coat back in the fall, and I did it with the intention of making myself a matching one. But I didn’t have enough background fabric, and it took a while for me to sit down and do some calculations and order it! During that time, I started developing the Patchwork Chore Coat, so I switched gears and decided to use my coat pattern for this quilt coat instead of my originalContinue reading

Modern Crossing Baby Quilt | Flutter

I made two baby quilts for PBS Fabrics’s 2020 Quiltcon booth, and in the rush to get these made I never created blog posts about them!

Etoile Quilt | Made with Thrifted Materials

I made a different type of quilt recently when I made a sustainable quilt with all thrifted and upcycled materials! This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while and with Earth Day around the corner I had the motivation to get this done! Why use upcycled materials? I wanted to challenge myself to create a quilt out of all upcycled materials for a couple of reasons. The first reason, simply, I like aContinue reading

Unruly Nature Nordic Star Quilt

This Unruly Nature Nordic Star quilt came out of my partnership with Ruby Star Society. They featured Nordic Star in this new Unruly Nature fabric collection in their lookbook, and I was able to actually sew one up! Unruly Nature was designed by RSS Guest Designer Jen Hewett. The collection is soft, beautiful, and complex. For my Nordic Star quilt, I selected fabrics from the yellow, peach, and pink colorways. It reminds me of pinkContinue reading

Using Fat Quarters for the Nordic Star Quilt

One of the questions I field the most is whether Nordic Star is fat quarter friendly. The short answer is no. The long answer is, yes, you can use fat quarters for the Nordic Star quilt, but it’s complicated. Nordic Star was written to use yardage. The ombre version is a gradient and each color gets used more than once. So as written, the pattern is not fat quarter friendly. However, if you wanted toContinue reading

Graffiti Hearts | Coral Version

For my second Graffiti Hearts quilt, I decided to go subtle and soft with a range of coral prints. I wanted to see how this pattern handled prints and a limited color palette. I’m happy to say I love BOTH in this coral graffiti hearts quilt! I pulled out various coral prints from my stash, enjoying remembering which quilts I used them in or where I purchased them. There’s a lot of happy memories wrappedContinue reading
