Snowflake Quilt

Hello Everyone! I was honored to be asked to test this pattern by Nicole at Modern Handcraft. I choose the 4 color version with Catherine picking out the 4 shades of red. It turned out perfect! We really love it and we really love the pattern.

The quilt pattern comes in several versions. A one color version with the snowflake in white (or if you were creative you could make your snowflake in any color you choose). The next option is a scrappy version and finally the one I did, a 4 color version! It’s very easy to put together. My advice is mark your pieces: I use sticky notes and straight pins to keep all of my pattern pieces in order.

Nicole is releasing the pattern on October 1st and doing a sew along starting October the 7th. I’m will also be doing that, but sticking with a more neutral pallet. I can’t decide if I want to do the white snowflake with the neutral scrappy or do the neutral colored snowflake with an all white background. What do you think? You can purchase the kit which includes the pattern and the fabric you need here.

We hope you love this pattern as much as we do and join the sew along.

Have an awesome week!

Dayton No. 1 Quilt

Hello! We have had a busy summer here, but now it’s back to school and back to work for all. This is one of the quilts we did for an upcoming quilt show. The quilt pattern is by Heather Jones and is called Dayton No. 1. You can get the pattern here in her book Quilt Local.

For the stitching we’ve used one of Karlee Porter’s edge to edge designs called Retro Tile #11. We love how the curves in the stitching add such a fun texture to straight lines in this piece. It also brings a touch of drama to the negative space on the quilt.

We also wanted to let everyone know that we are at about a week out on Longarm Quilting. So if you are wanting your quilt top done and back fast now is a great time! With our shows coming up over the next three months we will be quite busy and the wait time will be longer.

Thank you for stopping by! Make sure to sign up for our email list to be kept in the loop with any changes going on.

Have a great day!
