Shortcake in Hello Jane

Shortcake Quilt Pattern, Jelly Roll Friendly

(photo by Holly)

  I’ve been in a funk the past week…the kind where I want to laze around the house and ignore the world.  Then today, the sun was shining bright and all 4 of my kids slept in until 8 o’clock (cue the angel chorus), and I gave the house a good cleaning.  It’s amazing what good sleep, sun, and a freshly cleaned house can do for my soul!  

Anyways…back to the quilt!  

Shortcake Quilt Pattern, Jelly Roll Friendly

I absolutely love this quilt so much.  The pattern is Shortcake (found here) and the fabric is a jelly roll of Hello Jane (it comes out in May!).  

I thought maybe this pattern would be too busy for all of these fabrics together, but I ended up really loving it…this one will stay out all summer long.

I backed this one with a 108″ wide print from the Story collection for Windham Fabrics.  The backing is crazy simple to piece and yet I love not having to piece it with the wide backings!

I quilted this one myself, and bound it with my machine binding technique you can find here.

I’m curating April’s Quilters Candy Box!  They do a great job of putting together a fun box full of quilting goodies.

 You can find out more about it here, and I hope you’ll love what I chose!

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

(photo by Holly)

 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:

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!

In Tune can be found here, or here for paper.  

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