Playful 2 and Celebrate in Hello Jane

Playful 2 Pattern in Hello Jane fabrics

Sophie is such a trooper…always holding up quilts and posing for quilt photos.  I’ll be helper-less next year when she’s in school! 

Ever since I released my Playful pattern a few years ago I’ve had oodles of requests for it in a larger size.  It makes a great bed quilt size since it’s easy to put together, and honestly I’m not quite sure why I didn’t just make it in the larger sizes to begin with!  So now I’ve re-released it with more sizes in this pattern.  The blocks of the larger sizes are scaled larger, it includes 5 sizes, and uses fat quarters.  This version is of course made up in Hello Jane fabrics.

The two photos above were taken a day apart.  One day it was sunny and the next day we woke up to snow.

Kaitlyn quilted this one and did a lovely job!

I also made up this version of the Celebrate pattern in Hello Jane.

 If you haven’t seen Nettie’s version of Celebrate you have to here…I love it in the muted colors.

I quilted this one myself with my favorite (easiest) loopty loops.  I always plan on quilting something more complicated and instead I come back to the loops!  

If you’ve never seen Lori’s free motion design tutorials you are missing out…run and look at how fun they are!!!  I tried the footballs a couple of years ago and it was a hot mess….but I need to have another go because they are so fun!

In Tune

In Tune Quilt Pattern

 I’ve been on the “chocolate and sugar” diet this week and I think today it hit me.  Or maybe it was the baby deciding 4:15 was a good time to party this morning?  Both I think…I need a nap and some vegetables.

My husband named this quilt In Tune since it looks like tuning forks.  This pattern came about from a rug I liked…and actually you can see the pattern better in the single color version: 

In Tune Quilt, Jelly Roll Friendly

I like this pattern better in one color…but it’s also perfect for a jelly roll and showing off the prints.  It would pair perfectly with this set of jelly rolls I used for my Grayscale quilt top.  It uses pre-cut strips, or yardage, and you could even use a jelly roll for the background too.

Kaitlyn quilted this one and I love the design she chose!    It’s simple but adds to the design.

I pulled out all my navy fabrics and an off white jelly roll I’ve had for 6 years or so.  I’m hoping to tackle a single color version this weekend so I’ll share that as soon as I get crackin’ on it!

Happy Thursday!  One more day until the weekend…we can do it!

Cascade

Cascade Quilt Pattern in Hello Jane

I should probably share these quilts in the order they were made…but instead I’m sharing my favorite first!  Cascade is a twist on a diamond quilt pattern but made with triangles.

The pattern calls for a 60 degree triangle ruler and fat quarters, and comes in two sizes, a crib with smaller blocks, and the throw with larger blocks.  I called this an intermediate level pattern because the units have to be lined up just so and you have to make sure to use a perfect 1/4″ seam allowances.  Other than that it goes together smoothly and I included pictures in the pattern to make it easy.  This is a great one for chain piecing!

Kathy quilted this one for me (above).  Isn’t it beautiful?!  She does all her quilting free hand and I’m always amazed she can stay so steady and precise!

The crib size below was obviously quilted by me LOL.  Not as pretty or precise but it does the job!  The purples and blues are my favorite combo in this fabric.

More info on this quilt can be found in the listing here (or paper version here).  

It’s pouring buckets here…and I just finished sewing 28 blocks without bobbin thread before I realized it.  Hate it when that happens!  I’m making my second Shortcake quilt out of Hello Jane…luckily it goes together fast because usually making two of the same quilt is torture!  😉
