Rainy Day

rainyday

This is our latest Quilt design, Rainy Day. I just love it! I am going to try to steal it for myself to hang on the wall in my daughters room. It is mostly applique, with only pieced borders to add a little scrappy fun. The finished quilt is 48″ X 60″, perfect for a little ones bed or to hang as I want to do. We used the Apliquick tools and machine applique for this quilt, check out our tutorial if you would like to give them a try. Remember April showers bring May flowers!

Picket Fences

This is my Picket Fences quilt. I made it years ago and its one of my very favorite quilts. It is usually on my couch or my son drags it into his bed, or I do, its the perfect throw size for cuddling up in. In my family it has been well loved and washed a million times and just seems to get better and better. I have been asked for the pattern a lot lately because of pics I had posted on my Instagram, so I decided to share it as a Free Pattern. It is great for using up lots of scraps and I really think you could make it with the background in any color. Click the link below for the pattern and make one for you family to love.

Cheese

This is one of my very favorite quilts that I have ever made and just happens to be one of the easiest and quickest to finish. I even did the machine quilting myself on my regular Pfaff machine. It was featured years ago in the Better Homes & Gardens magazine Quilts and More but since it is now retired from that, I have decided to add it to our Free patterns. It is a great go to quilt when you have a beautiful collection of fabrics that hold their own and you don’t want to chop them up to much. Or if you just want to showcase some favorite prints together. This quilt is a combo of designs I loved from 3 of my favorite fabric companies, Adornit, Riley Blake & Alexander Henry. I hope you enjoy the pattern and make one or a few. I’m planning on starting one with the Everyday Eden Fabrics combined with some other faves from my stash. We also have a tutorial to help with achieving perfect points  on your triangles.

Enjoy!

Barbara: A Doxie Stuffie

This is Barbara or Babs for short, isn’t she adorable!? She is inspired by our friend Sascha’s tiny BFF Barbara. We received a new fabulous cotton canvas fabric from Alexander Henry and thought, wouldn’t this make a great stuffie!? And than we thought, we HAVE to make Barbara! So here she is and we are sharing the pattern for FREE! She is fairly simple to make, you just need to know some basic sewing skills. The pattern can be downloaded in a PDF through the link below. Click this link right here if you would like to purchase the adorable fabric we used, we think it really makes her extra amazing! We added the ability to purchase 2/3 of a yard, which is the exact amount you need to make babs, or you can order in 1/2 yard quantities like usual.

Here is the pattern, enjoy!

Barbara is about 23″ long and 12″ high when finished.

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.

Our First Pop UP Class!

Hand Applique with Jeanette, Wednesday, August 26th from 5:30-8:30 at The Junior League of SLC Headquarters 526 East 300 South: Come and learn the beautiful art of Hand Applique with all of the tricks that Jeanette uses to make her results so perfect!
