Attention curvy quilters! So excited to share a gorgeous new quilt pattern from Simone Quilts that you ARE going to want to make. I know that lots of us are fans of curved piecing around here and we know that the Classic Curves Ruler is the best for making quick work out of the cutting.
Simone's new pattern, Butterfly Bouquet, is such a sweet new addition to your curved piecing project list.
I love seeing other quilters making really cool quilt designs with curves...I so often see one and think, "I wish I'd thought of that!". A while back on Instagram...
Spring has sprung! at least for the moment here in Central Ohio, we have sunshine and freshness in the air. It's time for some fresh new sewing projects, wouldn't you say?
To welcome the new season and get inspired for fresh quilting, each week this month will feature a new special here in the website shop. Week 1 went so well, I'm holding it over! Continue enjoying week 1 deals through March 13. Don't wait, the sale on green and low volume fabrics will end for sure on March 13.
Here's what you will find at special prices during March Madness:
I don't know about you, but I just can't get enough of basic, all-over patterned quilts. Take one or two simple shapes, make them nice and big to show off pretty fabrics, and you have something sure to say "happy". The Mod Shapes quilt totally does that, plus! you'll learn a new technique with sewing half circles. It's easy enough to make a quick quilt, super fun to sew, and ideal for large scale fabric prints.
There is now a video up on Color Girl YouTube that's all you need to know to make this quilt. You'll learn how to...
Since I've been on a scrappy tear lately, I wanted to share some scrappy project ideas here. I spent time at the first of the year cleaning up my sewing space and it felt soooo good! I've felt a renewed interest in sewing with my stash and making scrappy quilts. Feeling like getting back to what I really love most about quilting: picking out fabrics and colors and putting them into just the right mix and piecing design.
That said, this first scrappy project isn't a quilt (although we are piecing scraps for part of it), but a cute little...
A big day, it's new pattern time! I feel like 2019 was one of my favorite years, quilt-wise, and now you can make one my personal favorites, too. <<get your Magic pattern here>>
Magic is a quilt I made as part of the promotional tour for Sharon Holland's fabric collection, Everlasting. I totally fell in love with the true, rich red and navy blue that are featured strongly in the fabrics. To complement the many floral prints, I chose a bright green tonal print for something a bit unexpected and playful. Plus, doesn't this lush color palette just make you...
Coming to you today with the quilt version of a New Year's Eve party (-: Now it's a free pattern tutorial on Color Girl YouTube.
Hope you enjoy this quilt as much as I do! It's versatile enough to be perfect for sewing some of your precious stash fabrics, scraps, or like mine: showcasing pretty Zip Stripes and Ombre Bloom fabrics.
There's nothing more fun that trying out a new shape or technique to grow our quilting repertoire and keep things interesting. 60* triangles are not super common in quilting, but they are a really fun shape to play with! They...
Join the group! (-:
One of the things I want to improve in 2020 is my quality time sewing and sharing that with the Color Girl quilting community. I've noticed on Facebook and Instagram that what I enjoy most is the interactions. I love it when a comment makes me laugh or you guys show me something you made with one of my patterns.
To attempt to meet this goal, I have created a group on Facebook for Colorful Quilters. The reason a group is better than a page for sharing is that in a group everyone can post, not just...
It's my turn (and I am late, please accept apologies!) to share the monthly clue for Cotton Cuts' Mystery Quilt Puzzle.
My pieces are all pretty fabrics from Alison Glass...gotta love these colors! I admit I don't have any idea where these pieces might fit in to the final quilt design. The folks at Cotton Cuts have done a good job at keeping it mysterious. See more of the monthly clue pieces Here to get an idea what we are working on.
This mystery is one of two that Cotton Cuts sponsors each year. During the program you receive a monthly...
It's here, it's here! I always love sharing a new quilt design with all of you and seeing what you make with it. This month the big reveal is Untamed, the newest quilt pattern for the Classic Curves Ruler. I feel particularly fond of this quilt because I think there is a lot of potential for interesting variations by changing the color placement or fabric style. It's a really fun one to sew and see the pattern come together.
This quilt was born when Sarah of No Hats Quilts contacted me to ask if I wanted to sew something with...
So, I write this post feeling a bit sheepish.
I had such a good intentions of finishing up my black and white quilt to submit to Curated Quilts for their black and white challenge and hopefully to be featured in their black and white issue. Well, a few things converged to thwart my success. I LOVE that some of you did it, though! More on that later.
Time constraints aside, I was well on my way to finishing my quilt when I hit a speed bump in the creative process. When I had all the blocks sewn up and I laid...
