I am excited to release my new pattern Home Mini today! You can find it in my shop here. If you have been following along for awhile, you know I’m a big Bonnie and Camille fan! I love their fabric designs!
It all started with this sweet little heart! After making my large twin size Home quilt (which you can find here) I just knew I needed to make a mini quilt.
I picked out some of my favorite Bonnie and Camille prints from my scrap bin! Can you name all of the fabric lines I used? If you don’t have a bursting scrap bin like mine (oops!), this pattern is also charm pack friendly!
I loved taking pics of this quilt! The Alphabitties from Fat Quarter Shop were a fun addition!
I picked some of my favorite colors for this quilt. I wanted to keep the hearts pink or red. I also couldn’t make a quilt without aqua! The navy print from Vintage Picnic is probably one of my favorites of all time!
I hope you enjoy making this pattern as much as I did!
I am excited to share my new quilt pattern today, Quilty Garden! You can find it in my shop here. Amanda gave us the theme of flowers to share with her Flora and Fawn fabric line from Riley Blake. I added these fun Riley Blake basics to my quilt. They arrived on a perfectly snowy day in March. Boo!
As I was piecing these sweet 6 inch blocks, I came across a fun new notion–fork pins! These are a game changer! I am always unpicking my blocks and these pins helped my blocks line up! If you haven’t tried these, you should!We go to Washington DC every year to see the cherry blossoms. I thought this Quilty Garden would look so cute with the cherry blossoms. The cherry blossoms fall off in the wind. There are beautiful pink petals everywhere. I think this Quilty Garden fits right in! These 6 inch blocks were a breeze to piece. I have a fun way to piece flying geese included in my pattern. You only need 5 different 10 inch squares for the flowers. For the background, you need 3 fat eighths or you can use scraps like me! That fussy cut deer is my favorite! Isn’t it so sweet?!?
This Quilty Garden was such a fun Spring project. You can find the pattern in my shop here!
We spent the day at Mt. Vernon, George Washington’s home. I had to get a few pics with the quilt there. My baby had fallen asleep and needed to try it out!
I hope you enjoy this pattern! How does you quilty garden grow?
Our first project as Amanda Herring’s design team was to design a project based on the theme ‘home is where the heart is.’ We are using the cute Flora and Fawn fabric by Amanda Herring for Riley Blake. I instantly thought of a sweet home block with a heart in it to show all the love in a home! This project quickly grew into a twin size quilt and my first pattern release!
Introducing Home! It’s a twin size quilt that is fat quarter friendly.
I’m excited and nervous and everything in between! The pattern Home can be found in my shop here.
The colors in this quilt are some of my favorite! And the prints are so cute! Those deer are so adorable! I just had to showcase them with a large border. I am always a sucker for a text print. And the text prints in this line are so cute! As I was piecing the quilt, I felt like I was getting a little pep talk with phrases like ‘be brave’ or ‘find your own voice.’ Isn’t that grey text so cute?
I had a lot of fun taking pics of this quilt. We live outside of New York City so a trip into the city with the quilt was a must! Central Park is one of our favorite places, so I had to get a pic of Home there. It was dusk, so the pic is a bit dark. But I still love it! I love the skyline of skyscrapers in the background. Home can really be wherever you are!
We also have some fun parks close to our home where we take our kids to play. I wanted to capture some of our everyday Home. Also, isn’t that quilting amazing? My friend Kim quilted it for me and I LOVE it!
Last of all, I spend a lot of time sewing in my Home. So I couldn’t resist a pic with my latest tag sale find! (or yard or garage sale- depending on where you are from) This antique Singer in the original table has all the heart eyes!
Home is not perfect, home can be messy, but it can also be full of a lot of heart and love. I hope you enjoy my new pattern!
