Making Stars


My weekend goal is to get my Christmas star quilt top made!  These stars are so fun to make.  Next week I’ll make size, fabric requirement, and cutting instructions for this tutorial to make this quilt even easier on you.  I love all of these red and green basic prints…I’ve been saving a few of these just for this quilt! 

Have a great weekend!

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!

Joyfully Quilt Pattern

I pulled this quilt out yesterday for Christmas, and snapped some new photos of it. 

I made this quilt 5 years ago for Kate Spain using her Joyfully Christmas Fabric, and I love how happy and bright it is.  I don’t buy a lot of Christmas themed fabric, but I love the classic reds and greens in this quilt.

I’m discontinuing the paper versions of this pattern, and a few others in my Sale section (link here).  If you use the coupon code along with the sale it makes them just over $3 for the paper patterns!  The PDF’s will still be available, I’m just clearing out some paper patterns to make room for new! 

I took a break yesterday from ripping up flooring (side note: don’t start renovating your house right before the Holidays  ) ;) and I pulled some red and greens for a new Star Christmas quilt. 

My fabric stash is SO sad you guys!  I have been so good about using my stash and not buying new fabric this year, but now my fabric stash needs restocking!  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend with family, friends, or just your sewing machine.  I’m thankful for each of you!
