We have a new class Spring class schedule! Check it out with the link below. Above is one of the many new quilts that have popped up in the shop over the last few weeks. You can learn to make this quilt in our Invisible Machine Applique class! As always you can sign up in the shop or over the phone at 801-484-5890.
Red N Butter is the top selling pattern of all time at Piper’s! It is by far one of my very favorite quilts as well. I have made it a million times over in a bunch of different fabric combination’s and it is always wonderful. The pattern was previously only available in a book, but has just now come out in an individual pattern. Woo hoo!!! Thank You, Barbara at Cabbage Rose!
Piper took her first ride around the neighborhood on her dads bike last weekend! A major milestone.You can already tell that she is a speed demon, she laughed the whole time. Apparently when he took her off, she went back to the seat and said, “up, up”.
I am really in love with the green bike seat that Piper is using. Her Dad knows everything there is to know about biking, and recommends this seat which is by Ibert. The company is local to Utah, so that is another plus!
I know what I am doing this weekend! This is the Effie & Ollie pattern, the latest from Heather Bailey!
Three new patterns all from Sew Liberated are in the shop. I am especially nuts for the baby carrier pattern shown below. I have had a number of new moms who have made this testify to how amazing it is! You should also check out Sew Liberated the blog, if you have not already, it is one of my faves. To purchase any of these new patterns just follow the links below.
Twirly Skirt for Girls
Mei Tai Baby Carrier
This scarf is one of my very favorites! I wear it all of the time!! If you are a little scared by cables but want the fancy look of them, this is a great pattern. It is very easy to make, and I love the look. I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, but any Aran weight yarn will give you the same look. You will need 2 to 3 balls depending on how long you like your scarves, I used 3 50 gram balls. I added fringe, but that is optional.Enjoy!
I think that there is one thing that my husband might love more then me, and it is chairs. I know it is a little odd, but he is an avid lover of modern design, and there are a plethora of chairs that represent this style. Most of which we have crammed in our house, or stuffed into out shed, multiple chairs deep. It seems silly, but one of the things we fight most about is too many chairs in one room. I start to feel claustrophobic, but he could fill it to the brim. So for Valentines Day I got this fabulous print and had it framed for him. It has all of the chairs that he loves, yet takes up much less space. I found it on Etsy at a shop called Please Be Still. The artists name is Jen Renninger and she has fabulous prints, cards and what not. I loved everything she had to offer, check it out and see what you think! Below is another print of hers, that I would love to have for my studio.
This is Henry and Leo, they are my dogs. They are everything that I never thought I wanted in a friend,smelly, furry, muddy, jumpy and most of the time ill-behaved boys. But they are young and learning to be better and now that I have them, I cannot imagine my life without them. They love each other and me unconditionally, they are very cuddly and warm and most of all they are FUN. Happy Valentines to my boys, I love you!
We have a few spots left in our class tonight: Invisible Machine Applique. Call the shop for more info: 801-484-5890, it starts at 5:30 and is a 2 session class. Whether you can make it tonight or not, You’ll want to get in on this class sooner or later! It is my very favorite technique! You can make all of the fabulous applique quilts you dream about at a decent pace. Plus you can hardly tell that you didn’t spend a million hours doing the hand work(Jeanette is going to kill me for putting that part, because as you know she loves Hand Applique above all!). I love to Hand Applique but there are only so many hours in the day, and if you know both techniques the world of quilting is a better place! These are two of the blocks from the Apron Club Quilt, both were made using our Machine Applique technique. Can you tell?
