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!

Clover Mini Iron

We have been waiting & waiting for this New little wedge Iron from Clover and are SO happy its finally here! They had an earlier version years ago, that we LOVED and it was discontinued, and it was impossible to find a replacement that we liked as much.  But finally they came out with this new version, that is lighter, easier to hold, has a pointier tip, and gets hotter on the high setting. We use this iron for our Machine Applique method, which requires a tiny pointy iron point, but I also love to keep it handy on a mini press board right next to my machine.  This is a new gadget that you will use & use! It is one of our favorite new tools!!

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.

Bloom & Bliss Fabrics

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.

Gumball Quilt

I just love this latest finish, it makes me very happy! This is our Gumball Quilt, what do you think? It is 38″ X 45″, just perfect for a little one, either girl or boy (or keep it for yourself!). It is made with oversized Half Hexies, that are super simple to sew together and very quick! Our pattern is at the printers and will be available next week, in a set that includes an acrylic template to make cutting this shape super simple. We also have complete kits, with all of the exact colors that we used, and the same stripey binding and polka dot backing, which I think really MAKE the quilt! I also loved that machine quilting this on my own Pfaff was totally do-able and I didn’t even have to mark it, I just followed the seams with a light pink Aurifil Thread. Follow the links below if you would like to order a pattern set or Kit (kits come with the pattern set, all fabrics for the top, pre cut bias binding and the backing!)
