Our Row by Row quilt is all quilted, finished and hanging in the shop! Jeanette machine quilted more than half of it on her regular old Pfaff, and the rest was done for us by Karen Morgan (who did a phenomenal job!) We are so excited to start making this again with all of you! Make sure you register if you want to get started with us next week, all of the info is in the post below to order and have it shipped or to pick them up at the shop. Check out who photo-bombed my pics! This little cutie was at the shop with me getting into all kinds of trouble.
You 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.
October 2014 Classes at Pipers
We are also still offering a big discount as well as free shipping if you purchase the whole year of patterns at once. If you purchase the whole year of kits you may choose either free shipping or to attend all of the classes for free for the entire year. We really hope you love this quilt as much as we do.
Unfortunately we cannot offer Free Shipping on International orders.
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.
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?
Love & Patchwork is one of my very favorite finds as of late! It is from the same group that does Mollie Makes, and I have loved every square inch of the first 2 issues that I got my hands on. It is out of the U.K. but you can subscribe, or pick it up around town, or even get it on your e-reader, plus hopefully we will be carrying it soon. The cover above is issue 3, the latest issue, that to my surprise our Animal Alphabet series is featured in as a new and wonderful find! So exciting!! P.S., I totally need to make that buttons quilt!
