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...

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...
An all-star is the athlete who has it all and looks great doing it....and I am thinking that this newest quilt fits that description. When you take fabulous fabric (prints, colors, the whole package) and mix it with an interesting design that's also super fun to sew, THAT is an all-star quilt!
Today is my turn on the tour of projects to show off the new Everlasting fabric collection by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric. Sharon was inspired by the idea of marriage, of "everlasting" love. That romance is reflected in the fabric, and the whole collection is gorgeous.
Two color quilts (specifically black and white) are better than I expected! I thought it was going to be more challenging for me to avoid using ANY color but black and white in a WHOLE quilt. I suppose that my love of pattern and the amazing variety of super cool B & W fabrics made up for the lack of color.
I've seen a few projects come up for the Color Girl Challenge 2019 (#colorgirlchallenge2019 if you're on Instagram or FB). What do you think? could you make a quilt with only two colors?
Sadly, I had planned on having my...
<<Giveaway Closed>> Winner drawn is Delain! congratulations! Cotton Cuts will contact for shipping details to send your prizes. Thank you, everyone for joining in.
Cotton Cuts Fall 2019 Puzzle Mystery "Cosmos" Quilt Along starts in July! Cotton Cuts is hosting a charity quilt along and I am helping as a host one of the months. Our quilt along lasts nine months and each month is a different clue shared by some of your favorite instagrammers and bloggers (that's me!). We are starting it all off with a GIVEAWAY!
But first: the details.
Each month, one of us will assemble a Puzzle Mystery Quilt...
I FINALLY finished my little pink and white Super Simple Sampler quilt! I'm excited to share this quilt and all the YouTube videos that go with it. These little sampler blocks are free to sew, with instructions right here on the website.
Last fall when I started this quilt, I made video tutorials featuring basic skills for piecing the blocks. These are a great resource especially for new quilters and those wanting to learn and add to their piecing skills toolkit. <<find links to all the videos here>>
This Super Simple Sampler is all pink and white for a special friend....
