Erica Jackman of Kitchen Table Quilting may have designed this generation’s version of the double wedding ring quilt!
Erica says the Gracie Quilt Pattern is quick and easy to put together and it is a great way to use Layer Cake squares, fat eighths, or scraps. It lends itself to working with a collection or pulling a bundle from your stash. The pattern has instructions for baby size (36″ x 36″), lap size (54″ x 72″), twin size (72″ x 90″), and queen size (90″ x 108″) quilts.
The Freya Quilt Pattern is such a fun project! It can be made with a Jelly Roll, fat eighths, fat quarters, OR it is a fantastic scrap or stash buster. The pattern has instructions for baby size (38″ x 48″), lap size (58″ x 68″), and twin size (68″ x 88″) quilts. Maybe because Valentine’s Day is coming up, but I can’t be the only one who sees hearts???
The Diana Quilt Pattern is a quick, fun way to show off your fabrics. It works well as a rainbow quilt, but also can feature your favorite fabric collections or solids. The design is particularly fun for bed size quilts. The pattern has instructions for baby size (36″ x 48″), lap size (60″ x 72″), twin size (72″ x 96″), and queen size (96″ x 116″) quilts. It gives the illusion of curves without having to sew them!
These patterns are due to arrive this month, so place your orders now!
Wooly Stars by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts is an Ohio gal so this pattern is especially dear to my heart. The Ohio Star pieced into each sheep adds that awe factor. And, at 62″ square is a great throw size. Why not make one for that knitter in your life or it would be a great toddler quilt or wall hanging.
Heart Strings uses light and dark shades of six different fabrics to create this double sized quilt. Don’t you love the secondary pattern that is formed with the background fabric?
Sun Twist combines shades of solids to create the striped pinwheels in this bed-sized quilt.
All of these patterns are due to arrive next month so place your orders now.
Mosaic Masterpiece II is a new fabric line by Cheryl Lynch of Oy Vey Quilt Designs. She is releasing several patterns to support the line. Everything is due to arrive soon.
I have included the fabrics used in this quilt so you can see the vibrancy of the fabrics and visualize what the sample would look like hanging in your store. AND, it only takes 3 fabrics! What a great Valentine gift for any quilter!
This quilt would also be a perfect wedding or baby quilt. Ask the machine quilter to write their names in the quilting!
Here are the other patterns in the line. They would all be stunning in this fabric line!
In Kelli’s own words: When I realized they weren’t teaching cursive writing anymore at my son’s school, I started the Keeping Cursive Alive Mini Quilt Series. At 12 x 24″ finished, these are the perfect size to hang on the front door, or anywhere else you’re feeling festive! Let’s make door quilts a thing! These mini quilt patterns are designed to use 100% scraps! All traditional piecing and straight seams.
The newest addition to the line is due to arrive soon:
It joins the other patterns in the series:
I love that they are all the exact same size so they can be interchanged and displayed on your door – inside or out!
Heartsy, the newest addition to the Cluck, Cluck, Sew pattern line, is fat-quarter friendly and includes instructions for five different sizes. This beginner-friendly quilt pattern is due to arrive early next month and would make a great Valentine gift!
For those of you who loved Brightly, it is the same pattern – just a different center block theme. And we all know how popular that pattern is!
Pumpkin Patches is also based on the Brightly pattern.
Why not start a series of classes? The Heartsy quilt for Spring, Brightly in patriotic fabrics for summer, and Pumpkin Patches for Fall?
Or offer a class in one and offer the other versions as kits. Once they make one, they will have the confidence and expertise to make them all!
Modern Fabric Art Bowls written by Kirsten Fisher takes fabric bowl making to a whole new level!
In their words: Delve into the world of quilts, fabrics, and bowl making! Take quilt blocks and bring them into the three dimensional space as tasteful, modern bowls. Kirsten Fisher shares her unique artistic vision and instructions on how you can take any piece of fabric and reinvent it using the design of your choice. Perfect to forever display a favorite fabric or quilt block, or provide a thoughtful gift to loved ones.
What a great way to use orphan blocks! Or, use them as a fundraiser. A youth group in our area made the bowls and sold them to members of the congregation. The purchasers used them to hold spare change. All proceeds, and the spare change, were then donated to the food pantry. What a great way to make a difference in your community.
When my kids were growing up, I would write them a love letter every year for Valentine’s Day. We would do a scavenger hunt complete with hokey poems…Roses are red, Daddy is blue; go to the place where he takes a poo…you get the picture!. Emily Dickenson, I am not, but when you raise four boys and a girl, you have to consider your audience!
I had already decided to bring back that tradition for my kids and grandkids this year. Because of the pandemic, I will send poems and letters to the parents and pass on the tradition. But wouldn’t these bags be great envelopes for the letters as well as a few treats?
Check out these features:
BAG DIMENSIONS: 8in Tall x 7in Wide x 3in Deep – 9.5in at the top when closed.
Bag can be made using one mini charm pack (42 – 2.5in) squares. Pattern includes instructions for two different ways to attach the zipper. Added Bonus option for a smaller bag.
Valentine’s Day is on a Monday this year so why not hold a class on the Saturday before. If you have embroidery machines, an initial or monogram in the center of that heart would add the awe factor!
These patterns are due to arrive next week so order them now! No exposed seams.
Not only do I love the quilts, you have to love the names and covers as well! Tequila Lime? Really – what a great name! This quilt measures 68″ square but an expansion pack is available if you want a queen.
Fortune Teller definitely has a celestial feel with the floating stars in the scallops. And don’t you love the way those scallops extend into the borders?
Setting Alchemists Crystals on point adds that awe factor to this queen/king sized quilt.
All of these patterns are due to arrive next month so place your orders now!
