Rainbow Hexies

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This month's Island Batik ambassador challenge was paper piecing. When trying to decide what to make scouring Pinterest for ideas, I remembered I had already made a small stash of hexies earlier this year from the Petting Zoo collection! It was their time!

These three bring my charity quilt count to 15!

The Finial Quilt + Pattern

Sunday, October 28, 2018

Remember that one time I made a quilt in a crazy short period of time for Mathew Boudreaux (aka Mister Domestic) for Quilt Market earlier this year? (You can read about it here.) Well, I obviously didn't learn my lesson, because I jumped at the chance to create something with his second fabric line, Aura!

Meet my newest quilt pattern: Finial. Finial is featured in the Art Gallery Fabrics lookbook for the Aura collection!

I'm so excited to finally be able to share this version of my Flurry quilt with you that I made earlier this year! Have I mentioned how hard it is to keep quilty secrets?!?

By Hand Blog Hop

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Welcome to my stop on the By Hand Blog Hop! By Hand is a new fabric collection from Contempo designed by Amy Friend of During Quiet Time. The fabrics are in quilt shops now, so be sure to visit your favorite quilt shop and ask for them! The bright rainbow palette immediately drew me in!

Amy designed the collection to have a light and dark of each color - and I wanted to make something that captured that!

Snowfall Barn Quilt

Last week, Kristi at Put a Quilt on It issued a fun design challenge: design a quilt block that you would want to see on a barn quilt. The winner would get their design as a painted barn quilt! I knew immediately I wanted to participate!

After a few days of being indecisive on what I would want to "permanently" display on our house, I thought of a brilliant (to me) idea: a Christmas barn quilt!
