Best Books: Quiltmania Special Children 2015

qmaniaI am always excited to see the new Quiltmania Special Children Magazine when it comes out each year! We especially love all things for kids and so its always a fave. This year is the 2nd year in a row that we have had one of our original designs featured in it, so its a little extra special! It has just started showing up in the U.S. stores, so look out for one, they always sell out quickly. Our quilt Sleepytime is included alongside 19 other adorable projects. I like them all, but there is a quilt called “I Spy” by Trish Harper that is my very favorite, its pictured below.

qmania3Isn’t it sweet? And below is our Sleepytime Quilt, my other favorite!

Pretty Patterns: Foxy Scarf for Little Ones


Fall is here! Get your little one ready and so stylish by knitting them this adorable Foxy Scarf. It is pretty simple to make and will have everyone asking where it came from & than begging you to knit one for their little one. The pattern comes in a PDF and will fit most 2-5 year old children perfectly. My son just turned 4 and he wore this one all of last year too. Also, we have a limited number of kits available with oh so soft Debbie Bliss Luxury yarns, all that you need to make the scarf, plus the pattern, shipped to you. Now I want one for myself!

Sneak Peek: Busy Birds


This is one of our latest designs inspired by our Row Quilt. Its called Busy Birds, we are really loving it, but were curious to see what you all think? The birds are paper pieced, and the simple to make pinwheels are 3 dimensional. The finished size is 51″ X 51″. The PDF pattern and kits are available now through the links below. I especially love the striped binding, and we found the most perfect fabric from the Bloom & Bliss collection to use as the backing.




Best Books: Story Quilts


If you love hand applique like we do , you will love these Story Quilts books from Yukari Takahara. Each book is absolutely stuffed with amazing images to applique and amazing quilt ideas. Children, babies, animals. holidays and seasons are the subjects in both books. We are currently obsessed! We think you will be too. We sold out of our first order in one class, the next order will be here next week. Click the link below to order one or both for your self.

Favorite Fabric: Bliss & Bloom


We love everything about these fabrics from Nadra Ridgeway for Riley Blake. We have followed Nadra on Instagram for a while (she is @ellisandhiggs) and were excited to hear she had designed a fabric collection. Once we got our hands on it, it totally matched up with the fabulous fabrics we had envisioned in our minds. Blooms & Bliss has lots of colorful, fresh small prints that we are always wanting. Today we chopped a bunch of it up, and we cant wait to show you what we are making…

We have put together Fat Quarter Sets & Half Yard Bundles of our favorites from the collection as pictured above. Click here to shop for some.

A Bittersweet Goodbye to Sugarhouse

Our building in Sugarhouse that Piper’s has resided in for almost 2 decades, has recently sold very quickly and we have moved out.

At this time we have decided to move into a Private Studio space, which will  mean the following:

We will no longer have a “retail” shop in Sugarhouse with regular shopping hours.

We WILL have a larger Online shop, specializing in Kits & Patterns of our Original Designs, our favorite notions & tools, and a larger selection of carefully curated beautiful fabrics & yarns

We WILL have Classes & Shopping Events at various Pop-Up locations(we may even travel & come closer to where you live!)

While it is bittersweet to leave a location we have loved for many years, we are very excited about what is to come, and hope that you will be too.

Make sure you are registered to receive our emails, and follow us on our Facebook page, Instagram and of course here on our Blog so that we can keep you “in the know” on all things Pipers.

Our phone number will remain the same, 801-484-5890.
