I am working on some scrappy blocks today. I am really not sure the how they are going to end up, but am loving how bright and cherry they are! Weirdly, Yellow is probably my least favorite color, but for some reason I decided to make it my main color as I was experimenting. Now, it is the only part of my blocks that I am sure of. What do you think?
We are sending our W is for Whale quilt off to be machine quilted today. What do you think? He is next in our Alphabet Animals quilt pattern series. We love him and can’t wait to see what Betty our machine quilter does with him. Kits and patterns will be available right away, so keep in touch if you would like one!
I am having so much fun making this Giant Chevron quilt! It started out as a little experiment but now it is a full on project and it is almost done! It has been so quick and so simple! I will be sharing the tutorial on how to make your own over the weekend, so stay tuned. You will not believe how simple the technique is! The is a great beginner’s project, so if you are a newbie, don’t be scared!! What do you think? This started out as pinwheels, but now I am totally sold on the Chevron.
Today we are going to spray baste my Modern Rainbow Baby Quilt to get it ready for machine quilting. I am so excited, it is so close to being finished! I was a little un-sure about this quilt throughout the process, but now I am completely in love. It was a little out of my comfort zone, but now I am so glad that I stepped outside of it. What do you think? We will have patterns and kits some time next week, let us know if you are interested!
Today we are working like busy bee’s putting together more of our Crochet Baby Patchwork Quilt Kits.
I never tire of looking at these, they are just beautiful! It is a project that looks truly “heirloom” quality that you can make with only a minimal knowledge of crochet!

Click here for our class schedule: Piper’s Class Schedule or give us a ring to register. If you are far from us, don’t fret! Just watch our video and have your own class from home! Here is the link to our you tube channel: Piper’s Girls You Tube Channel. Enjoy your Friday, the weekend is almost here!
So I have been busy finishing up my Rainbow blocks and now they are starting to look more like a quilt. I really think I love it! I just have to add my borders, quilt it and add binding, hopefully I can squeeze all of that in this weekend. What do you think? If anyone is interested there will be a pattern and also kits. I love how fresh this quilt feels and I think it would work perfect as a baby quilt for either a boy or a girl!
This little Alligator is heading out of the studio today and off to be quilted. This is only a tiny little peek, but what do you think? We have been busy working on designing a whole series of quilt patterns for children and A is for Alligator is the first one to be released. We are loving all of them and can’t wait to share them with you! This pattern and the kits will be available by the end of next week, so stay tuned!
Today I have been doing some paper piecing. I am working on a modern baby quilt. What do you think? I need some fresh eyes and some honest opinions. It is a little different style of quilt than I usually make, but I think I really like it! But I am also not sure. Does that make sense?
P.S. Happy New Year!!
I am currently making our Peacock Scarf in a completely different yarn than the original I made years ago. I absolutely adore it so far! What do you think? I am using a DK weight bamboo. It totally confirms for me the idea that this scarf is truly beautiful when knit from any number of yarns. This pattern has been more popular on the internet than I had ever imagined when I first put it out there for free! While looking through the comments, I noticed that some people were confused by the third row. There are a series of P3tog (purl 3 toether) decreases, that many were worried would shrink the scarf in width. All of these decreases have a YO (yarn over) that precedes and follows them. Therefore you are decreasing2 stitches with the P3 tog and than adding them back with the yarn overs. To help any of you who are confused, we have made two short You Tube video that are below. Whether you are making this scarf or not, they will help you anytime you are doing a Yarn Over(YO). I cannot wait to finish this scarf!
I just found this Rose Cravat while looking for something else on Berroco’s website. I am in love!!! I have to make this! This is so simple ans so chic! I have started knitting like a house of fire late at night while my baby is sleeping. I am discovering that becoming a night owl is the key to accomplishing anything. I am working on a nautical themed boys sweater, I’ll share some pics soon. As soon as that is finished, or maybe even before, I am starting this! Follow the link below to find the pattern and you can make one too!
