Boxed Up

Boxed Up Quilt Pattern

I hope you had a great weekend!! 

If you stopped by my shop you might have seen this pattern is finally done for anyone who asked me about it this summer! 

Boxed Up Quilt Pattern

I initially wrote a pattern for this quilt in July for a subscription box, and it’s been on my list to re-write it and stick it in my shop.   I went back and forth on the sizing, and finally decided to make the blocks bigger so you could use fat quarters or layer cake squares, and simplify the design a bit.  

For the life of me I couldn’t decide which sizing I liked better, so the PDF version of this pattern includes the Boxed Up pattern with the large blocks shown above, and also the Flower Box version of this pattern below, with the smaller blocks that I wrote this summer (only in a throw size). 

 So my indecisiveness means you get both patterns in the PDF.  🙂

If you bought a Paper version of Boxed Up and want the PDF of the Flower Box pattern just email me and I’ll send it over. 

Are you confused yet?   Me too.

Kaitlyn did the quilting on this quilt, and the fabrics are Washington Depot by Denyse Schmidt.  

I used my scraps and extra fat quarters to make a scrappy binding with the pretty magenta fabrics.

I bought some fat quarters of Tula Pink’s Christmas Line Holiday Homies, and I think the large scale prints will be awesome in this pattern, and easy enough I can whip it out before Christmas….maybe.

Have a great week!

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.

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!
