Sneek Peek :Row by Row Inspiration Quilts

row 1 inspirationDid you know that we are making a complete quilt inspired by each row of our Row by Row! We are having a great time making them, so I thought  I would share some sneek peek pictures. The quilt above is our pattern inspired by Row 1, which I am currently still in the process of machine quilting. It is a beginner’s quilt for sure, from start to finish. It is being quilted in all straight lines, so you can even do the quilting yourself without much experience. The picture below is still being finished by Jeanette and is the quilt inspired by our Row 2. I absolutely love all of the red & pink in this quilt (my very favorite color combo)! All of these will be available soon as separate patterns in PDF and physical versions. If you purchase our complete Row by Row, whether is was just the patterns or all of the complete set of kits, you will be receiving these with your shipments through out the year as part of the Row by Row package. We hope you love them all as as much as we do. Hopefully each of these quilts will also inspire you to make your own designs from the row patterns!

Introducing the Piper’s Girl Row by Row Quilt

The Piper's Girls Row by Row QuiltYou are cordially invited to make this stunning quilt Row by Row with us, one row a month. You will learn a lot of different techniques as we go, and you will get one of these beauties to call your own at the end.

Each Row is available as a pattern or in a kit with fabrics included, one per month. There will also be a tutorial on this blog that will follow the release of each row to give you a little extra help with whatever technique that pertains to that month’s pattern. If you are local, we will also be offering a one evening class that you can register to attend for even further assistance. In other words, lots and lots of instruction to get you to another level in quilting! Plus most months we will have an additional quilt that uses only that month’s row pattern, for additional inspiration.

We are taking registrations through the web links below or call the shop, Row #1 will be available September 20th, with classes later in the week.

Best Book: Quiltmania Special Kids 2014

qm1

Quiltmania has been one of our very favorite magazines for as long as I can remember. We always think everything included in fabulous, unique and right up our alley in terms of style. When we started designing our own patterns, one of our lofty goals was to be featured in Quiltmania. So we were a bit giddy, to say the least when we found out they wanted to publish not one but TWO of our designs!! Yesterday a few copies arrived of OUR issue arrived and to say we are excited is the understatement of the century. Not only do our quilts look stunning on the pages, but all of the other projects that we are surrounded by are just beautiful! The issue is called Quiltmania Special Kids 2014 and has 28 different patterns inside, all geared towards the little ones. We will have issues in our shop and online to sell in a few weeks or you can pick it up at your local shop, or Barnes & Noble and other booksellers. Pick one up, its a keeper!

Our E is for Elephant and our W is for Whale patterns are both featured, and our Whale is even on the back cover!

I honestly love everything else that is included and am a little obsessed with the penguin quilt pattern below.

Quick Tips & Tools: Turn your quilt into a Scrapbook

scrapbook

This is s super simple tip, that will turn your quilt into a scrapbook of any kind with only a little effort. Why not turn your quilt into a record of memories. This is our O is for Owl quilt and we have been recording the milestones in my niece Piper’s life onto the flags as she creates them. We have used a permanent Pigma pen to write them down, and as she is now writing herself, she can start to record them in her own handwriting. Now, not only does she have a quilt she loves but it will be a scrapbook of sorts for milestones in the beginning of her little life. You can do this on any pattern and it really doesn’t take much time! This will work great for children, babies, anniversary gifts, weddings and much more!

This is Sleepytime! I think it is my very favorite baby quilt, EVER! And that is saying a lot! This quilt combines simple patchwork with adorable little sleepy animals that are appliqued into their beds. The border is a beautiful scallop that is also the binding as it comes around from the back. We used a beautiful Irish Linen that is included in our kits. Jeanette also hand quilted this little lovely to make it extra special. You can purchase just the pattern or a kit through the links below. So, what do you think?
