Holly Holderman of Lake House Fabrics and Kimberly Jolly of It’s Sew Emma have teamed up to bring you Fabrics and Patterns that are any shop owners DREAM! They’ve taken all the thinking away… all the WORK away… and have created something new that you just HAVE TO SEE!
Everyone is familiar with panels – but this new fabric line, Sunrise Studio, takes that concept to a whole new level. The design potential is limitless once you understand the basic idea.
Let’s look at some patterns to see how these darling, complicated looking quilts were engineered in just a few hours with this new line. “Not your Grandmother’s Flower Garden” is created with just four fabrics:
Item #LHP1404 Retail $9.00
The center hexies are cut from a pre-printed fabric. This photo shows the detail incorporated into this design. The mini dots are all available separately because who doesn’t love dots???
That scalloped border? Is sew simple when it is cut from this print. Notice there are four rows of scallops – on for each side of the quilt and quarter circles so you can piece a perfect corner. How easy is that??? The scallop adds the softness of a gentle curve – but you are still binding a straight edge!
The inner check border is pre-printed as well. Just cut it from this fabric:
The middle periwinkle dot border adds interest and also acts as a “fudge factor”. The size of the quilt can be adjusted at this point to fit the scallops. Oh so simple….
Four fabrics and less than four hours is all you need to finish this crib or lap quilt!
Flower Pot Garden is created by cutting the blocks from pre-printed panels as well. It doesn’t get any easier than this – just six fabrics including the binding!
Item #LHP1407 Retail $9.00
The flower pots were cut from this fabric:
The fencing blocks are cut from this print – which includes corners if needed – just like the scallop!
The inner and outer border is created with the same check print above. The scallop print is the same – but in a different color (LH14023LETT).
The multi-dot print is perfect additional borders and makes a great backing:
This line includes lots of dots – and this one is the perfect binding…
Hide and Seek is constructed like the quilts above.
Item #LHP1408 Retail $9.00
The nine-patches and an inner border are cut from:
The alternate blocks are cut from a Pam Kitty print:
The scallop is Item #LH14023CHRY. Another fabric from the Pam Kitty line is used for the binding:
Four fabrics – including the binding – and you have a spectacular quilt – literally in an afternoon! It doesn’t get any better than this!
