Muavelous

Fat Quarter Friday Pattern

I am ALL about mauve lately!  It’s making a comeback!   

It’s funny how color trends cycle through the years isn’t it?  Just like fashion trends I guess (jumpsuits?!).  It gives us a second or third chance to try all the colors!   I used the Cotton and Steel fish print to pull the rest of the colors in the quilt.   Most of the prints are a variety of Cotton and Steel with some basics pulled from my stash, and the perfect berry floral from the line Washington Depot by Denyse Schmidt.

I used the fat quarters and made a quick Fat Quarter Friday quilt (the squares quilt from this pattern).  I think I’ll keep this one for myself…it’s my only quilt in these colors and will be a perfect pop of color in my house. 

Speaking of my house…I’ve had oodles of questions about how my cabinets turned out since I shared that I was painting them last October!  

I’m happy to say that I lived (barely) to tell the tale of painting my honey oak cabinets!  They turned out even better than I had hoped they would.  Not gonna lie though, this project was a killer…it took me 2 full weeks and so much hard work (and some tears!).   I don’t know if I’ll ever attempt it again but I’m glad I did it at least once!   

Painting cabinets before and after!

I used this free guide pretty much step by step to paint my cabinets, except I only sprayed my doors, and I used a different grain filler. 

 Anyways…for those of you that asked, yes they are done, and yes I’m glad I did it!  

Painting cabinets before and after!

Mostly I’m just glad they are done and I can get back to sewing.  Yay!

Scrappy Ziggy Baby Quilt

Scrappy Ziggy Baby Quilt and Pattern

Happy March 1st!  I’m so ready for our dreary wet winter to end, but the sun is out today and it’s looking like Spring!  

I pulled this happy stack a couple of weeks ago and decided to make another Ziggy Baby quilt but with lots of different prints for each color.  

Scrappy Ziggy Baby Quilt and Pattern

The pattern really only used 5 fabrics, but I wanted each “step” to be a different color with lots of different fabrics.  I colored in the layout diagram how I wanted it, and then cut the fabrics from my stash until I had enough I needed for each row.

It only took me 3 failed attempts to lay it out without the pattern before I went and got the layout diagram…it’s looks deceivingly easy out until you get started!

I love the result, and it’s nice and big measuring 48″ x 54″.  The pattern can be found here (or the paper pattern here), it’s a beginner friendly pattern for sure.  If you are a seasoned quilter this is a great quilt to even make without a pattern!

I planned on giving this to a sweet lady at my church who is having her tenth (!) baby next month…but I barely know her.  Is it weird to give someone I barely know a quilt?    I’m just going to do it anyways, and who cares if it’s weird right?  I’ll be that awesome/weird lady at church who gives everyone quilts.

Fat Quarter Friday

Fat Quarter Friday Quilt Pattern, 2 easy quilts you can make in a weekend

 Isn’t that the best texture?  The wavy lines is my new favorite quilting design…for now.  

Fat Quarter Friday is another new pattern I put into my shop last week.  I made these quilts ages ago…but it seems appropriate to share them now since the fabric I used comes out to stores this week.  So basically it was good that I procrastinated posting these quilts for 6 months so you can buy the fabric now instead of in 6 months!   

If you ever need help finding ways to justify procrastination…I’m your girl.

Fat Quarter Friday includes instructions for two super easy fat quarter quilts you can make in a weekend. 

They are both super fast, and great for a bunch of fat quarters you don’t have a plan for.  The squares quilt in the pattern works perfect for large scale prints like these in the Kinder collection by Heather Ross.

Kathy quilted both of these quilts for me and as usual they are perfect.  Since they are busy I wanted something super simple quilted on them and this is perfect. 

This Kinder collection is just shipping to stores now and it is so, so cute.  I chose some coordinating solids for my second strips quilt to keep it from being too busy.

This strips quilt is a simplified version of Mingle, a baby quilt I made a few years ago.  The strips are still large enough to show off prints in the fabric without chopping it up too much.
