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!

Sleepytime is here!

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?

M is for Monster

We have finally finished our M is for Monsters Quilt! What do you think? We had a lot of fun with this quilt and our favorite thing about it was using Bamboo Felt for a lot of the applique! It is our new not so secret, secret ingredient!

Appliqued quilts are so much fun but we realize that they are a challenge. Using the bamboo felt, makes the experience very quick and easy. There are no raw edges and no needle turning.

 It washes beautifully unlike the Wool blend felt. There are tons of beautiful colors and the edges do not have to be turned under and will never fray. Wow this changes everything! If that isn’t enough it is a little thinner than regular felt and just a little thicker than regular quilting cotton. The texture change makes your applique designs really fun.

In the M is for Monsters quilt we used a combination of cotton fabrics and the Bamboo felt and we just love the way it turned out! The picture below is the color range of the felt, we will be carrying a lot of it in our shop and online very soon, so stay tuned. We also will be posting a little Bamboo felt applique tutorial on the blog next week that you won’t want to miss.

The M is for Monsters patterns are available now in a physical pattern & PDF and kits through the link below.

A is for Alligator

He is finally hanging in the shop and I want to rip him down and take him home already! I just love this new A is for Alligator quilt! It is also the first quilt that my little boy Ronan has become obsessed with as well, which I love even more. The applique is super simple, so if you are a novice this is a great quilt to start with. We used our machine applique method with the edges turned under. So, what do you think?
